In July of 2009, we get married and I was in great shape at the time! Then in November of 2009, we move to Camp Casey, South Korea. I had a couple of fitness certifications so began teaching classes 4-5 times per week with some times teaching 2-3 times per day. I had also set up weightlifting programs to follow and being in a foreign country I was eating everything new and figured it will be okay since I am working out as much as I was. I WAS WRONG!! Two years and 25 to 30 pounds later, we are coming home to the states. I am miserable and not comfortable in my clothing. Unhappy with how I look and frustrated with the excessive amount of weight I had gained. I did not have a job and was dying to get the weight off. I had recently been introduced to Clean Eating, which I was taking head on since I was home, and could cook our meals. The gym that I liked going to was about 20 min away and with the price of gas at the time it was getting expensive for me to be driving back and forth three to five days a week. Dying to find a gym that offered the Les Mills Body Pump but there was nothing less than 20 min away. I had started talking to a friend about Beachbody and at the time, they had just teamed up with Les Mills to offer a home version of Body Pump called Les Mills Pump.
At that point in time, I had two huge goals: 1. My sis was getting married in September and I wanted to loose the weight. I did not want to be up in front of friends and family as a size 10. And 2. We had decided it was time to start our family and I had always told myself that I wanted to be in the best shape of my life before I got pregnant. Robert and I talked about it, for me to become a Beachbody Coach was the best deal for the discount, I was able to get the Les Mills Pump and get started with Shakeology, and I would not have to spend the gas going to and from the gym. I started in May and by September, I had dropped 20 pounds and 4 dress sizes. Within two weeks of starting the program, Robert was already noticing results and I was feeling back to myself!
In the beginning, I was very skeptical because my way of thinking was you have to have a program you go to the gym or your run. I never ever thought that I could get these amazing results from working out at home with a set of DVD’S! Much less, drink a shake that was full of the vitamins and minerals your body needs and craves.
