Since having two children, I have been on a mission to create the best version of me possible. I have tried a number of different methods and while many have failed, Beachbody has definitely succeeded. As of August 27, 2011, I have completed two rounds of Insanity. Yes, that makes me freaking INSANE. However, I love it! Actually, let me clarify…I love the results. I often roll my eyes and swear my way through the workouts. They are the hardest workouts I have ever done. I went so far as to cancel my gym membership because the program works so much better for my crazy schedule of motherhood and I achieved better results in 60 days with Insanity and Shakeology than I did with two years in the gym. I complete the workouts in my living room and there are no excuses for me. If I have to run and let the dog out, I do it. If I need to get milk for one of my kids, I do it. I just keep pushing play and pulling myself up off the floor.
I made the decision early on that not only do I need to work out, which I have always done fairly consistently, but I also need to eat cleaner and set a better example for my children. Don’t get me wrong, I am nowhere near perfect and enjoy pizza and wine as much as the next. However, I try.
I ordered Shakeology after reading online raves and it has become my multi-vitamin. I have a shake every day for breakfast and love how it makes me feel. I have even done the 3 day Cleanse with Shakeology and lost 7 lbs the last time around. The stuff is simply fabulous. The only downfall to Shakeology is the price. It is expensive. However, I view it as a lifestyle modification and have given up my afternoon coffee from Starbucks to balance the budget per se. In addition, I signed up as a “Coach” to receive the product at a discount and to hold myself accountable to my goals. I truly feel the Beachbody programs are absolutely amazing. I am so inspired by many of my friends that have made incredible changes on p90x and Insanity. I just happen to be one of the many that have had success with these programs.
I am not a naturally thin person. I am naturally a person that has an obsession with poor eating habits. However, being a great mom to my Arm Candies is numero uno on my priority list and part of my being a good mom is making good decisions. Becoming a Beachbody coach is my decision to commit to my health and the health of my family. So, join me on this journey!
