My Personal Transformation Tuesday

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!

There were…

No pills
No wraps
No patches
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?

No!

Has it been worth it?

YES!

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!

Half Way Done!

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.

Progress Over the Year

29 October 152 Weeks Postpartum-2

 

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!
