Two years ago I was a mom of 4 kids under 4 (including twins). I hadn’t struggled to get the baby weight off after my first two pregnancies, but after baby number four? Man, I was riding the STRUGGLE BUS.
I was at a point when my maternity clothes were too big, but I still wasn’t fitting into my pre baby clothes comfortably. I didn’t feel my best and it was affecting my mood toward my husband and kids. I spent most of my days wearing yoga pants and baggy sweatshirts to try to hide my problem areas. We had also been so busy with the kids that we weren’t prioritizing nutrition. We’d order in take-out several times a week and our diet was pretty heavy in carbs. We were operating in survival mode, and I was sick of it. I reached a low one day when I realized that I had to make a lifestyle change. I wanted to kick the extra baby weight and flab to the curb once and for all and needed something to give me a little extra motivation. I was also hoping I could find something that would help with my anxiety and postpartum depression, which only seemed to be getting worse.
One day I saw a friend posting about the 21 Day Fix and Shakeology on Facebook. I told myself it was a scam and just another one of those network marketing companies that was trying to push products.
But for whatever reason, I clicked on her post.
I showed my husband, and right away he was like, “No, we don’t need to spend money on that. We already have a gym membership.”
Defeated, I kept scrolling.
But something kept drawing me back to it. Yes, I had a gym membership, but I wasn’t getting results. I would wander around and grab a machine that was free, maybe go for a run and do some free weights and abs, and often leave having done a less than average workout. So, with my husband hardly on board, I purchased the 21 Day Fix. I too was somewhat skeptical since I’ve always been a gym person, but I thought what the heck, I didn’t have much to lose if it didn’t work.
I popped in the DVDs and started the workouts in my basement. They were only 30 minutes but they KICKED MY BUTT. I also learned how to eat the right portions of the right food groups without having to count calories or macros, which was incredibly freeing and simple to maintain!
For the first time since having kids, I started to recognize my body again and felt comfortable in my post-baby skin.
However, I was still extremely low on energy. I could get through the workouts but then I was so tired and sore the next day that I started skipping workouts here and there and again felt defeated.
That’s when I decided to try Shakeology. I thought it was just another protein shake and didn’t understand why it was so expensive, but it came with a money back guarantee, so again I thought, what the heck do I have to lose?!
I started drinking it daily and after a few days I could already start telling a major difference. I had more energy, I was recovering from my workouts faster so I wasn’t as sore, and I wasn’t craving as much junk food and carbs. It also tasted like a chocolate milkshake, which was perfect for my chocoholic tendencies.
I did some research and learned that what I was drinking wasn’t just a protein shake. It was packed full of superfoods from around the world, had prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and it didn’t have crap it in that the shakes I could find at Target or Walmart had. This was a quality product, and it had changed my life so much that I wanted to continue drinking it.
The hubby told me it had to be an instead of cost, not an on top of cost, so I decided to find a way to budget for it. It came to about $30 per week that I had to cut out of my Target run, which was possible. I mean, I couldn’t pick up as many random things as I used to, but it was worth the sacrifice. 😉
Eventually, I felt so good (it was helping me mentally too) that I was at a crossroads. Never in a million years did I think I’d ever want to build a business in network marketing, but I undoubtedly NEEDED and WANTED to share this incredible tool with other moms who were struggling like me. Whether they just wanted to tone up, lose 100 pounds, or do something in between, I knew I had a solution for them that would actually work. It wasn’t a fad diet, but a maintainable lifestyle.
For two years now, I have been a Team Beachbody Coach, and it is truly the most rewarding job I could have ever prayed for. Every day I get to interact with other women who have the goal of making themselves BETTER and STRONGER for their families. I get to walk alongside them in the thick of their struggle and see them come out victorious on the other side.
It’s not about helping them get six packs (although that happens), it’s about watching them become confident from the inside out and having energy to live their lives to the fullest!
Many of the women who have come through my online boot camps have decided to join me as business partners, and now THEY are paying forward the gift of health to the ones they love while providing for their families!
Other women remain as customers and refer their friends to join my online boot camps so they can do it together!
I wasn’t kidding when I said ALL the moms are talking about it!
The reason I wanted to share all of this with you today, is because right now is really the BEST time to start your fitness journey.
It’s on sale, and who doesn’t love a good sale to motivate you? (I’m Dutch.)
Right now, I have a special package offer that’s called the All Access Challenge Pack. This is the BEST value in fitness right now, and much like Netflix, trends are showing that soon almost every household will subscribe to it.
And right now you can save $40!
The price for the All Access Challenge Pack this month is just $160 (regularly $199). Just wait until you discover what’s included in that.
Included in that package is:
- 1-Year Membership to Beachbody On Demand (BOD) with all the workouts Beachbody has ever made, plus new future releases. Beachbody On Demand is like Netflix for workouts. You can stream them anywhere with a wi-fi connection! I never use DVDs anymore because the BOD app is so much more convenient. I workout at the gym sometimes, or at home other times. All I have to do is open up my BOD app on my phone and my workouts are with me wherever I go! It can be used by multiple family members.
- Shakeology (choice of 30-day supply)
- Portion Fix (includes 7-piece portion control container set, eating guide, large blue container & Shakeology shaker cup)
AND, because you will have a YEAR subscription to Beachbody On Demand, you are WELCOME to be in my monthly boot camps anytime you want, with or without Shakeology. Obviously I hope you’ll stay on Shakeology because I personally believe in it so much, but if that’s not a financial possibility for you, you will be all set because of your BOD subscription!
