Day 1 of 80 Day Obsession

Today is Day 1 of 80 Day Obsession! 😊 I would be lying if I didn't say I was a little nervous.  This program is going to be a huge challenge for me.  Not only committing to the 6 days a week 40 minute to hour long workouts, but the program includes a timed nutrition plan, which is something I didn't even know existed till this program. I am loving that there are 80 different workouts, and the videos were done live, so we are progressing right along with the cast.  I have never done something like this before and I am determined to do the program as it is written. I am in an exclusive coach test group run by the trainer, which I have also never had the opportunity to do in the past.  Test groups are by invitation only and are usually a pretty small group, 100- 200 of the top coaches.   This time they opened it up to any coach who was willing to commit and do the program.  We have close to 40,000 coaches in the group! 😮

OK, I am going to be very REAL over the next 80 days of this program.  I have NEVER shared my weight publically before and this time I am putting it all out there. Gah! 

Tracking my weight from July 2017, I started at 268.8 lbs. I had dropped 24.2. lbs, but my weight went back up in November and December putting today's starting weight at 256.2. 😒

When starting any program you want to take your before pictures and measurements.  I always take them, but I have never shared those before publically.  And because I am in the test group I was asked to take them in a sports bra. 😨 Well, here they are!  Be gentle. This is so hard for me to do, but I believe by putting this out there and not hiding anything along the way this will not only help me but maybe it will connect with others and inspire them too.

So here are my BEFORE pictures. 😢😢😢 I am putting this out here to say goodbye to the girl in these pictures.  Moving forward from here and excited to see how I transform mentally and physically! 😊😊😊

Here I Go Again...But NOT On My Own

Completed day 1 of Country Heat yesterday and can't believe how emotional I was during the workout.  I found myself crying several times, overcome with how far I have let myself go, and knowing I am responsible for where I am.  Scared that I will fail again, like all the other times in the past. Knowing in my heart, that I can't fail this time.  I am at an all time high weight!  I don't even recognize myself in the mirror.  My face quickly gets flushed when I do any type of activity. My ankles, my fingers, hands, you name it, they are all swollen ALL the time.

Well over a year ago, maybe closer to two, I just quit. I was so tired of always "restarting".  It seemed unfair that I constantly lived my life "trying" to lose weight. So I gave myself permission to not do anything.  I didn't call it "quiting" or "giving up", I told myself I was going to be happy right where I was.

I had been a Beachbody coach for forever and a day - I was surrounded by success stories. People succeeding not only in their health and fitness journeys, but in their coaching business. When I told myself I was happy right where I was, I couldn't keep seeing all of that on my social media accounts. I just didn't want to be reminded of what I was telling myself I couldn't do. I completely unfollowed and unliked all the pages and people that I was connected to.  Left groups, tried to totally disconnect from all of it. Okay, I didn't disconnect from it totally! There were true connections and friendships I had made through Beachbody that I kept, and it being so easy to hide right out in the open on Facebook, I'm sure not one of them even knew I had went on a rampage leaving groups and unfollowing top coaches.

I kept getting FB memories popping up of posts I had shared in the past, you know the ones you see all the time...I worked out! I drank Shakeology!  New video on sale! lol Seriously I was annoying myself. What was not there was me truly sharing myself, my struggles, how hard life was at times.  I thought I had to be perfect, I had to know everything and be the shining example.  I mean I was a coach for goodness sake.  I had to have my shit together.

Well here I am again, starting over. Hopefully For the last time!  I am going to do this. I am going to share all the details, good and bad. You might get sick seeing it, but I don't care! :) I truly am so grateful for the outpouring of support I have already received.  Honestly I couldn't believe it.  You have made me feel like I can really do this!

Do It All The Way

This post by our CEO and co-founder of Beachbody speaks so well to what a lot of people go through with any goal. Whether you are trying to build your Beachbody buisness and help others or if you are trying to lose weight and be healthy, he says it so well...Do it all the way, NOT half way, ALL the way.

I got this message the other day from a very frustrated coach: "I'm so tired...Why can't I be energetic, envision what...
