A 17 Week Pregnant Beachbody Coach

Back in July of 2014 I began my journey in my first challenge group. Joining my challenge group was my last effort to lose the weight that I had gained during my pregnancy with my then 18 month old daughter.

I never thought that my life would be changed SO profoundly by purchasing the 21 Day Fix challenge pack. Looking back over the past nine months, it has been the best money I have spent, without a doubt. My results were AMAZING :)

During my challenge group, my coach asked us to share our why --- why are you doing this challenge? Mine was simple --- lose the baby weight. But there was something deeper there. My husband and I wanted to have another baby, and I was not comfortable carrying another child before I felt comfortable in my own skin.

Well, here I am, 9 months later, carrying our second child, due in September.

To say that I ONLY achieved my initial why --- to lose the baby weight --- would be an understatement. Over the past nine months I have gained so much more from being a Beachbody Coach.

I am more confident. I feel great. By keeping up with a  healthy lifestyle before and DURING this pregnancy, I have more energy (which is necessary with a  toddler to run after!) and my weight gain has been gradual. At 17 weeks, I just got into my maternity clothes.

I am more patient. I am happier with myself. I take time everyday to have some time ONLY for me. Whether that time is a 30 minute workout during nap time or a long shower without my daughter pulling everything out of the drawers, I make the time to take care of me.

I am happier. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I was miserable before, but transitioning from a full-time teacher to a full-time mommy was hard for me. I truly believe that I was made to be a Mommy, but I am a mommy that needs something for just me too. Beachbody has given me that. I run a successful business from my kitchen island. I interact with other people (adults!) on a daily basis.

So here I am. A 17 week pregnant Beachbody Coach.
Maybe you are in the same situation.
Maybe you are in the same situation that I was in nine months ago.
Maybe you just need a change.
Maybe you just want YOU back.

I encourage you to join a challenge group, just like I did, and really give this a shot. Discover your WHY and commit to change with me. You will not regret it.
