20 days ago I joined my first challenge group with Beachbody. This challenge group consisted of a group of like minded ladies who wanted to commit to 21 days of nutritional eating and focused exercise. We each had our own goals and reasons, but joined together in an online community, and encouraged one another and held each other accountable! Over the past 20 days I have seen change in my life.
Physically– I have lost 5 pounds and quite a few inches of my baby bump have disappeared. I have held planks, done push ups, burpees, and all kinds of other new exercies to tone and strengthen. I have watched the foods I ate and followed a super easy nutrition plan through Beachbody. I have NOT been on a diet. I have chosen to take care of myself and the body the Lord has given me.
Mentally- I have felt the “foggy mommy brain” begin to lift! As I have fueled my body and gotten the daily exercise I need, I have been energized and ready to go with the events of the day. Sugar crashes? No, they haven’t happened over the past 20 days. Emotional cries? No, they are gone as well.
Spiritually- I have asked myself the hard questions about why I want to be fit and take care of myself. My main goal is not to see the number drop on the scale, although it has. It is not to have my clothes feel better, although they do. But I am focusing intentionally on my physical self this year in order to be able to say YES to the calling the Lord has placed on my life. Yes to my kids when they need mommy to have energy and patience. Yes to my husband at the end of a long day. Yes to a life of “ready”, ready to climb high mountains both literally and figuratively speaking.
This year I committed to taking my physical health more seriously. No more starting over. No more wishing I would have started yesterday. But just simply saying yes, one moment at a time and taking the necessary steps to improve day by day.
The past 20 days with Beachbody have helped push me in this commitment and give me very practical ways to achieve this desire. That is why I am posting today, to let you know I am not finished.
I have decided to become a Beachbody Coach!
As a coach I will continue to do and even lead challenge groups like what I have been a part of this month. I will place myself in community with like minded ladies who will encourage me in this on a daily basis. But here’s the best part, I will invite YOU to do it too!
Throughout this month I have thought about so many of you who I know would LOVE the programs I am learning about through Beachbody. Not only do I believe you will love them, but I believe you could do them and do them well. At risk of sounding super cheesy (I promise these are my words and not an infomercial) the encouragement and accountability along with the incredible workouts and easy to follow nutrition guide of Beachbody are simply too good not to share.
Here is what you should know…
Next Monday, FEBRUARY 6th, a new challenge group will begin and I want you to join me!
If you are interested, even in the smallest way, would you send me a message on FB or shoot me an e-mail? firstname.lastname@example.org.
I want to talk with you!
When I started with my challenge group 20 days ago I partnered up with my own coach, Lauren. She quite literally held my hand and walked me through what program I should do, how to get started, and has spurred me on over the past 3 weeks. She’s kind of great like that. And now it’s my turn. I’d like to do the same for you.
What do you think?
February 6th Challenge Group, who is with me?
