ABOUT ME: How Beachbody’s TurboFire, Ultimate Reset and Insanity have changed my life FOREVER!
Back in 2011, I was very depressed at what I saw in the mirror. I didn’t like who I had become. I was scared I was going to fail my weigh-in that I have to do for the Navy before I take my bi-annual fitness test. After having my daughter in 2008, I had let myself get up to almost 180lbs. It was the HEAVIEST I had ever been. 180lbs on a 5’5″ frame is just WAAAY TOO much. I had joint pain in my knees, hips and ankles. Shoot.. I didn’t even HAVE ankles, I had cankles!
She motivated me to get the workout and try it for myself. I started it and although it was challenging, I pushed myself everyday. I was waking up at 0400 in the morning to get my workouts in, AND after 90 days, I had lost 15lbs and 10in on my entire body! I was so amazed!
After getting down to 165lbs, I decided to do the Beachbody Ultimate Reset® .
And BOY, I was really happy with the results!
I lost 10 MORE pounds, BUT.. I let myself get cocky. I thought to myself, WOW I am now down to 155lbs (a weight I had NOT seen since before I got pregnant with my daughter), I don’t need to do anything else to maintain! WROOOONG! Going back to eating unhealthy food and too much of it combined with a lack of motivation led me to gain most of my weight back.
Phase 2 – Starting Over
After letting myself get back up to 175lbs, I didn’t want to look in the mirror anymore because I was so ashamed of my lack of willpower and motivation. My pants weren’t fitting and I would walk into my closet and come out crying because nothing would fit. I knew it was time for me to start over again with a program that I had been scared of for quite some time. It was time for me to go INSANE!!
I got together with some girlfriends on Facebook and we started to do an Insanity® Challenge Group! What an amazing change has come over me! Doing this workout with the support and accountability of others makes it so much easier and WAAAY MORE FUN!
