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!
