Being a part of a company who’s motto is End The Trend has been such a game changer for me.
I was doing alright on my own, or so I thought. I had lost a little weight, gotten in better shape, I had become a runner before I found Team Beachbody. But I still struggled a LOT with nutrition and a true plan for my workouts.
Finding this team gave me the tools I needed to reach my goals. Last summer I was truly in the best shape EVER! I was smaller, leaner, tighter, more fit than I had ever been in my life at the age of 43!
Then this winter, I got sick. I let myself fall off from my daily workouts because I couldn’t get out of bed for work half the time. I allowed myself to fall back into bad nutrition habits because frankly, I wanted to eat junk! Yes, I knew it would make me feel worse eventually but I was too busy feeling sorry for myself.
I’ve gained about 20 pounds.
Summit came and I felt horrible! Last summer I was this picture of fitness! This summer… not so much. I was fluffy and feeling completely unworthy of representing a fitness community.
Then I remembered something….
THIS IS JUST PART OF MY STORY! MY STORY IS NOT OVER!
So I went and I remembered that we are ALL in different places on our journeys. Nobody’s path is straight. We all have our ups and downs and THAT’S OK!!!!
I’m very glad I went because it lit a fire under me. I’ve eaten very well since I got back. Following my portion controlled system and doing my daily Country Heat workouts. It’s only been three days but I already feel more focused. I know this is the right path and I’m excited to see where I will be after the 30 days is up!
I’m going to stop beating myself up over my setback. It’s only a failure if I give up and that’s just not who I am! I’m WORTH the effort it will take to get back to where I was!
I’m going to share this because it’s awful and scary, but I hope it’s a little inspiring as well.
Here’s my “before” pictures I took just last week.
So you can see that I have some work to do. And that’s OK!!!! I’ll get there! So will you!
I would love to help!!!!! Together we can help, one person at a time, to end the trend of obesity!!!
