This week I wanted to share my own personal one-year transformation photos and story with you! When the photos on the left came up from last year I couldn’t keep this progress to myself! I was so excited to share and more than that I wanted to share the details on how I got to where I am now!
No drastic diet restrictions
It did involve…
Making my workouts a priorities
Proper portion control
Planning out meals for the week
Never giving up despite my kids crazy sleep schedules or life in general!
This has become a lifestyle change. Yes, it has included the occasional remainder of a PB&J or a handful of goldfish or a slice or two of birthday cake because that is LIFE and there is no way around it! I didn’t let that get me off track! If I oversleep and I was not able to get my workout in so I would take a rest day and get back at it the next day!
Has it been easy?
Has it been worth it?
Getting up early and making sure I get to bed at a decent hour is tough. Making sure that I have my workout clothing set out the night before and on either Saturday or Sunday planning out my week has helped tremendously.
So what did I do exactly?
I followed three different programs. Two of which were each 21 days with workouts consisting of 30 min each. The most recent program that I have completed was 8 weeks of strength, stabilization, and power training. Due to illness and a variety of other bumps in the road it took me close to 12 weeks to complete, yet I still completed the whole program. Due to kids crazy schedules and an effort to make life a lot easier for me and one less meal to plan I utilized a meal replacement that helped me to get all the vitamins, minerals, and protein that I needed for cheaper than buying that meal. Quick, easy, super healthy and that is what I call a huge WIN for this mom!
I can’t wait to see what is in store for the next year!
Who wants to join me? I am offering some FREE goodies!!
Is that you?
I want to help YOU!

Can you name something that you have been eating for 4 years that gives you all of these benefits?
I have been enjoying this shake and all of its wonderful benefits for the past 4 years! It has been around for 7 years now!
I wanted to share a little more about it with you!
It is NOT a protein shake!
It is NOT a diet/weight loss drink!
It IS a superfood!
It IS a healthy fast food!
It DOES give me energy! HELLO!! I have two little ones under 3, I need all the energy I can get!
It does DOES crush my cravings for junk and sweets!
It DOES boost my immune system!
It DOES keep me regular! (Just being honest with you!)
It DOES fuel my body to perform at its ultimate level!
This is why I drink it. Every! Single! Day!
Even when I workout…especially when I workout!
I love my Shakeology!!

This has not been the easiest journey, that is life these days. I had to restart the program after only 2 weeks due to all of us getting the stomach bug and it lasted almost a whole week. Then once I restarted it has taken me close to 6 weeks to complete 4 weeks of the program, which is why there is more than 4 weeks between my before and current pictures. Hopefully in 4-5 more weeks I will be able to post my final photos!
I love this program so much! It has pushed me on days where I just wanted to quit or give up. I have learned new lifting techniques and moves. I am seeing my body change in ways I didn’t think possible after having two babies!
I have had days where I didn’t feel like working out or my body felt tired and needed to recover more so I took the time off I needed. When I felt better I would do the next workout in the plan. I always take Thursday’s off since they are my super busy day.
Here is a list of all of my non scale victories!
I have gone down 3 pant sizes.
I have more energy.
I am a lot stronger physically.
I have become stronger mentally.
I have NOT quit or given up. I have pushed through on tough days and done workouts at 3 PM when my children are getting close to their daily meltdowns or I have gotten up at 4:30 or 5 AM when I have felt like I could.
I have slept when my body needed it.
I have pushed harder when I felt like I could.
I have trusted God in this journey.
I have gained so much confidence.
I could care less about what the number on the scale says. I could almost care less about my measurements. I love seeing myself getting stronger! Pushing more weight than I did the last time and seeing how my body responds.
70% of people give up or quit on their workout program
I refused to be part of that 70%! This is a proven program that works! I had to trust the WHOLE program meal plan and workouts and that is exactly what I have done. Yes, I have taken a few more rest days but I have done my best to keep my nutrition on track.
Would you like to see results like these?
Today was Day 1 of my last 21 Day push to the end of the year! It went very well and I am happy with how the day ended up! I am feeling energized and so happy to be back on track and eating better. I already eat decent but there are days that I do not eat enough fruit or greens and it has felt great to have those back in my meals! I also LOVE not having to worry about trying to count calories! I don’t have time for all of that! I know exactly what I need to eat and all I have to do it check off which containers I eat for each meal! It is so easy!
Workout: PLYO – NOT to be confused with PiYO they are two very different workouts! I will be feeling that one tomorrow! A small miracle happened this afternoon as I had hoped to get up very early to workout and that didn’t happen BUT I was able to workout from 4 – 4:45 PM with both kids playing and minimal pauses! I also managed to get in the 10 Min Abs workout which I did have a little extra resistance and a foot or two in my face! Watch out world not only did I get a workout done in the afternoon, both kids were with me, and I did two videos! I feel like I could take on the world now!
Breakfast: two scrambled eggs, 1 slice of toast, water, coffee with 1 tsp coconut oil and 1 packet of stevia – 1Y, 1R & 1 tsp
Snack: PB Banan Chocolate Shakeology 1R 1P & 2tsp
Lunch: 2 hard boiled eggs, orange spinach salad with sunflower seeds, balsamic dressing 1R, 1.5P, 2G, 1O

Dinner: Bulgogi, kimchi, brown and white rice, with Romaine leaves 2G, 1R, 1.5Y, 1tsp
I got all of my 12 cups of water in also today and I felt like I made a lot of trips to the restroom today!
Over the past year I have been tired, exhausted, sleep deprived, a new mom of 2 under 2, uncomfortable in my skin, feeling bloated, and trying to embrace the joys of a new baby. It has been a lot to adjust to and the biggest thing that I have learned is that it is all about balance!
After gaining 60 plus lbs with my first pregnancy and to only be able to gain about 35 with this one I had to watch what I ate and make sure to stay as active as possible. I proceeded in completing 2 rounds of 21-Day Fix and 2 rounds of 21-Day Fix Extreme and was highly dedicated to the program. I changed it up with a couple of different programs and getting out and walking and trying to start running again. During the following months we were traveling back and fourth between the states a couple of times along with taking a trip to Korea and I enjoyed my fair share of wonderful foods all the while trying to making the best choices possible during the time that we weren’t traveling and were at home!
Now, I am ready to get focused again and prepare for the new program coming out in December and I will be starting after the first of the year! I am now within 5 lbs of my pre pregnancy weight which reaching it is not my main concern right now. I am now ready to do one more focused and on track round of 21 Day Fix Extreme. I am excited to see some big changes in my body over the next few months!
Of all programs I have ever done this has been by far the simplest and easiest to maintain and keep up! Portion control and 30 min of workouts has made a huge impact on shedding 60 lbs of baby weight!
December 7th starts my journey back to the best shape of my life since I am not back to my probably weight! Follow me as this journey begins!
