Another 5% challenge comes to an end.
Thursday, July 04, 2013
Well another challenge comes to and end. This one went by so quickly. I have been so busy I haven't been here like I like to be. I did good to keep up with posting my workout time and weekly challenges but I did the work and I met my 5% goal at week 6. I have lost another 12.5 lbs. Plus I have made some really big changes in my life in this 8 weeks. On Aug 6th I will have completed a full 90 days on Turbo Jam. Gonna send in my pics and get my free completion Tshirt. I will have been on Shakeology for 90 days and the difference is amazing to me from drinking it. My skin is beautiful. Soft like I have lotion on when I don't. I normally have little bumps on my upper arms. Gone! I have lost all of my cravings for junk and have been actually craving fruits and veggies. Like I can't get enough of them. I am not using Shakeology as a meal replacement, although that is what it is designed for. I am using it as a nutrition adder because this stuff is packed with 70 superfoods that I could never get the vitamins and effects from in my normal daily diet. Plus I am an all natural girl. I don't believe in chemicals and won't put that crap in my body. This stuff is all natural! It has been one of the best things I have added to my nutrition. I will take pics and measurements this Saturday but I can tell and see a big difference in my results that last 8 weeks. My belly bloat is gone!
I also decided to start my own business and become a beachbody coach. Which is a big step for me after being at the same employer for the last 19 years. I did a lot of research and soul searching before I made the choice though and I accredit part of that to the things that I have learned and done here on sparkpeople over the last several years. My desire to help people has come from the struggles that I have seen not just here but also around my life, my friends, complete strangers that I have watched. We have a huge obesity epidemic in this country and I too have been effected by its dangers. I entered a fast track training program by the top coaches in the industry and just finished phase one basically and start the next on Monday. I have learned so much that I it has just drove my passion for wanting to help others live healthy all the more. I have been doing a lot of personal development and am really getting a lot out of the things that I have been learning. Learning is growing so I have always been open to learning new things but this has been putting me outside my comfort zone and pushing me beyond things I knew I might be capable of to seeing and knowing I am capable of anything I can dream about and set my mind to.
I am taking all the steps to live my dreams and have the life I want. I am so excited about what the next 8 weeks will bring into my life!
I am also working on my own web site and hope to have it up in a couple of more days and I will share it so you can all give me your feedback on what you think!
I also promise that I have more spark time scheduled in so I can keep up with everyone better!
I want to say Thank you and how much I love the 5% challenges and all the work that goes into making it happen. I am proud to be a part of an amazing group of people no matter what teams we are on!
