I've always been the kinda girl that thinks I have to go to the gym to get a good workout. I've tried doing stuff at home but other than a run with the dogs I've always lost motivation. When we brought J home that was the end of my gym membership. Even if I had the time to go to the gym, no way did I have the energy. I had the Insanity DVDs from a friend and never used them. So in January my New Year's resolution was do to the first 30 days of the program. All 6 days of the week for 4 weeks, doesn't sound so bad right? Well it was brutal but I did it! Then I decided to keep going and do the entire 60 day program and I'm proud to say I did it! Lost 14 lbs and gained muscles I didn't know I had. All the crunches and gym exercises in the world never gave me core muscles like I have now, even when I was at my lowest weight ever I didn't have these muscles. Turns out I love doing home workouts! Did I mention how much easier it is to chase and carry around a 9 month old when your in shape?! Now I'm doing the Turbofire program which is way more fun than Insanity but I'm not losing weight as fast and I have a long way to go yet. But I'm not discouraged, its a lifestyle change and not all about being skinnier. I'm so much happier and have so much more energy and patience for J when I get a good sweat every day.
I've also been drinking Shakeology, which is a health shake made by the creators of the Insanity and Turbofire workouts. I didn't love the taste at first but its definitely grown on me and now I love it! It has all the vitamins and nutrients I need and covers all my servings of fruits and veggies so everything else I eat is just a bonus. I'm a huge fan of Beachbody products. I generally think anything on an infomercial is a scam but Beachbody lays everything out there for you and if you follow their program and nutrition guide, you'll get the results they promise. And there is a money back guarantee on all their products, even if you use them.
I signed up to be a coach so I can help others and get the awesome discounts. So if anyone is interested check out my website, www.beachbodycoach.com/jenlindsey or the Shakeology site www.myshakeology.com/jenlindsey.
