I am a 35 year old mother to 2 boys, Cade who is 3 and Eli who is 8 mos old. I have always wanted to be a fit person,but always had excuses or obstacles that seemed to get in the way. My fitness journey began not too long ago. I felt trapped, depressed, and had a bit of anxiety following the birth of our 2nd child. Trust me, I love my children to the moon and back and would do anything for them. So why was I stuck in this downward spiral? I wanted to lose the preggo weight and be the happy and fit mother that my children and husband deserved. But how?It wasn't like I could go to the gym. What was I supposed to do with the kiddos? And I didn't trust myself to do it on my own. I wasn't going to hold myself accountable. That's when I started noticing the changes a friend of mine had made in her life. She posted her fitness journey on FB and was consistently inviting others to join her in challenges. What finally peaked my interest was when she invited me to learn what being a Beachbody Coach was all about. Before the week was over I already knew that being a coach was what I wanted - what I NEEDED - in order to make me whole again.So I sat down with my husband and explained how unhappy I was with my fitness (or lack thereof) and that I needed this to get me back on track. I needed the support of other women to hold me accountable along my journey.Not to my surprise, he supported me 100%.
After the first week of working out and drinking Shakeology I was hooked! I am now into my third week and keeping my eye on the prize - strength, stamina, and a healthier life style.
