Who doesn’t want a rockin’ bod? We see pictures on a daily basis of the ideal female body.For me, it has always been Oxygen magazine’s muscular fitness models’. To stick to a goal and finish strong. To use my body for what it was meant to do, work! While I don’t plan on gracing the covers of Oxygen anytime soon, I have made a major change to further my health and fitness goals.
As usual with these sorts of endeavors, I jumped in with both feet and became a Beachbody coach. Beachbody is the founder of programs like P90x, T25, and Insanity. It also has an amazing meal replacement shake called Shakeology. Being a coach is scary for someone like me who has a long way to go in her fitness journey, but it’s a great motivator to have a few more pairs of eyes keeping me accountable. That’s why I’m sharing this with you! I want you to follow me on my journey to a healthier me.
Sharing something so personal is scary. I have failed at this before. I have made a 360 degree change just to turn right back around. I have lost weight and found even more. I am at the heaviest weight of my life, and that’s why I knew it was time for a change. Not just a temporary diet, but a new way of thinking. It was time to take small steps toward a goal important to me.
So, I started slowly this time. I am drinking a gallon of water a day and drinking my Shakeology every morning. I will make time to get in an at home workout everyday. I will eat more meals at home. This won’t be perfect. I will make mistakes and miss workouts. The difference this time is that I won’t allow my past to interfere. My past doesn’t control my future, I do.
As terrifying as this is…I wanted to share my “before” picture with you. I want you to see where I’m starting. See that making a change is scary and hard but if I can do it so can you! Here it is:
