I just finished The 21 Day Fix through beach body today. I loved it!! I followed the meal plan that was included, completed each workout, and drank my shakeology everyday. My hard work and dedication has really shown as I’m losing My mommy pooch. Yes I still have a lot more to do to reach my goal but I’m super proud of myself for doing and finishing each day in the 21 day fitness. I’m not going to lie it was not easy. There were days I wanted to quit… mostly on cardio days. I stuck with it and I’m glad I did. I will continue my meal plan but I’m fixing to start a new challenge with a group from my challenge page. I wanted to do this challenge with them every step of the way but after I finish it I am planning to do the 21 day fix again or finally start and finish Insanity!
I haven’t really talked about my beach body business in awhile so I wanted to tell you all why I’m doing it and why I love it!
I joined beachbody because I love all the workouts I’ve done through them and think you will too! I’ve done Turbo Jam, P90X (in the past), and attempted Insanity (it killed my knees but I think I have built up some endurance to finally complete it). I also joined because this summer I’m finally going to get certified as a personal trainer and thought what a great way to get my feet wet. Becoming a personal trainer has been a dream of mine but after I got pregnant with my son I guess I kind of chickened out.
I’m really glad that I joined beach body. It has really showed me how to open up to others and given me the opportunity to meet new friends. I love that I get to share a lifestyle that I believe in with others that truly makes their lives happy and healthier!
I’m really looking forward to this journey with beach body. I can’t wait to add others to my team and watch them grow. I would love to get certified in several of the programs to teach them in classes for others to join. My time will come and I can’t wait for you to join me!
If you are interested in any beach body workout please visit http://www.teambeachbody.com/beglass and click shop to find the program that best fits your needs. Or if you are wanting to try shakeology (which I highly recommend to everyone…LOVE IT!) visit http://www.shakeology.com/beglass
FYI my favorite shakeology recipe is vanilla shakeology, 1 tablespoon of regular PB2 with 1tablespoon of chocolate PB2, and 1/2 teaspoon of unsweetened coco. OH it is so delicious! It feels like I’m cheating and having dessert. =))
Anyway as usually please feel free to leave some feed back in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me know if you are interested in joining my next challenge. It will start on Monday so get with me soon so I can get the info to you!
This post is for you mommies! Especially c-section mommies since I’ve had two. I remember being told my skin will not go back to how it was. I thought I was going to have this wrinkly belly forever. That is until I started doing my own research and actually working out (and sticking with it).
My first c-section was March 9th 2011. I was huge with my son. I gained a ton of water weight and swelled something horrible. I lost all my baby weight pretty fast but was so upset with the way my stomach looked. I have very few stretch marks but they are the silver stretch marks so it a hard to see them. I didn’t work out at all after my son was born so I was defiantly not in shape even though I had lost all my baby weight. Then I had my second c-section with my daughter. The baby weight came off fast again and I actually worked out for about 2 months. Nothing heavy just some simple work outs. Shortly after I started a new birth control and I started having break through bleeding. I gained quite a bit of extra weight. You can imagine I was not thrilled about this! I had stopped working out and got to the point where I hated to look at myself in the mirror. I thought it was impossible to lose my mom belly. I just assumed I would have that mommy pouch all the time. I was so wrong.
Week by week I am seeing it disappear. I am in no way ripped with muscle. I know I still have a lot of work to do. But hey… I’m getting off the couch and doing something about it. I am learning discipline! I see my stomach skin toning up and losing the wrinkles that I was so self conscious about. I see little muscles popping out and forming each week.
I really just do not want to see you mommies getting disappointed. You can look anyway you want after having a baby. You just have to choose what kind of figure you want and work hard for it!
I’ve been meaning to share my email with you so you can pass on any questions you May have for me. You are welcome to send me topics that I will look into or questions you may have for me. You can contact me at email@example.com.
The top two pictures are from where i started and the two bottom are from this past week. .
My Journy Update
My weight has pretty much stayed where it’s been but each week I am seeing significant changes in my body. My back muscles are really popping out and my arms and legs are toning up very nicely. Each week I see my belly getting smaller and tighter. I love watching my body change. It is so amazing how much a week can change your body. I sure hope you all will join me in my next challenge! Have a fantastic weekend.
I want to make a new post every week/weekend but this weekend I am going to be extremely busy with my baby boys 3rd birthday. Gezzz time sure flies when you’re having fun!!! Anyways I really just wanted to let you all know that I am doing a FREE 7 day challenge for you all to join in on. It includes a meal plan with a grocery list, work out tips, and motivation! I would really love to have as many of you join and see what kind of results you can get by just eating clean and staying active. If you love it then you can get with me on a more permanent challenge and get some one on one time with you. Be sure to go join my Facebook page Breann’s Fitness Challenge. If you can’t find it let me know and I will add you!
Just an update on my goals…
I started this journey at 123. Yes some of you may say WOW I wish I was 123 but you have to keep in mind that I am only 4″11 and my stomach was not toned up at all. I’m happy to say I am now down to 111.5 my goal being 100 like I was before I ever got pregnant. At this point I am really starting to see some muscle definition and would not be upset if I stopped losing as long as I continued to tone up the way I am. I’m super excited and so glad I get to share this experience with you!
So I’m really proud of myself. I started this journey wanting to lose 20lbs. I’m proud to say I am down 10 so far and No one can stop me! A couple years ago I had someone come up and ask me if I was ever going to grow up. (If you don’t know me I’m very short right at 4″11) Before I could say anything this person goes on to say you know some people they grow tall and other just grow out the other way so you must grow out the other way. WHAT? I really didn’t know what to say to this person. I was just in awe and hurt. It didn’t make it any better that it was one of my own family member that said this to me. I mean come on…. at the time I was only 100lbs. Gezzz I want I would give to be 100lbs right now. Haha Anyways here I am today thinking this person will not win. I will fight until the end. I will not let anyone tell me that the only way I can grow is to grow out. I am growing muscles and becoming stronger everyday.
Here is just an update on what I’ve had going on the past few days…
I started The 21 Day Fix with beach body on Thursday and love it! I’m not going to say it’s easy because I’d be lying to you. I thought it would be pretty easy for me since I’ve been working out already by but my body must have grown accustomed to the work outs I was doing. My body is sore! In a good way. I am seeing a lot of new muscle definition coming in and am so proud/excited. Still working on toning my lower stomach but hey it’s not going to happen over night. It is getting there though!
Something new I’ve tried this week is Shakeology. Guys I love it!!! Its all whole foods and taste delicious. I like to do a cup of water, half cup of frozen strawberries, a tsp of unsweetened coco powder with a scoop of vanilla Shakeology. Just talking about it makes me want on. It defiantly helps with the sweet tooth. If you are interested in trying it out let me know and I can show you were to order yours!
I am a Brand New Beach body Coach! I am so ready to help you guys reach your goals so get with me soon and let me help you get on the right track to a healthy lifestyle.
Thanks for keeping up with me and all of the support! I greatly appreciate it all.
