My Beachbody Transformation

IMG_1044

My fitness journey started in 2013 when I was struggling to get pregnant.  I had always struggled with my weight and had just found out I had PCOS.  Around that time I was on Facebook and a friend posted a picture of the ab definition she was getting from TurboFire so I thought I’d give it a try.  I somehow came across an amazing team of people that helped keep me motivated and I went on to do Insanity and Asylum and had amazing results… and then I found out I was pregnant.  WITH TWINS!  

I had an incredibly difficult pregnancy.  After 6 weeks on hospital bedrest, our twin boys were born 6 weeks early weighing 4 and 1/2 pounds each.  We took them home after only 10 days but they required all of my focus and time.  I was on the floor playing with them at 5 months postpartum and realized I could barely get off the floor.  I had gained 70 pounds with my pregnancy and at that point I realized I HAD to start working on me. 

After recovering from a blood clot I was finally cleared for exercise and did a round of T25.  I didn’t cut calories because I was exclusively breastfeeding so I lost very little weight.  I did however gain back some much needed muscle.  I felt some confidence to start Insanity and completed month one when the boys started teething and we all basically stopped sleeping.  Haha.  I decided to focus on my nutrition so with Shakeology and clean eating I slowly started to shed some weight.  By the time the kids were one I was able to wean and really clean up my eating habits and focus on getting back in shape.  As of today I have lost 60 pounds from my heaviest!  I am seeing some ab definition and I now fit back into almost all my pre-pregnancy jeans.  I started Insanity Max:30 and still have much to learn about nutrition and will continue to improve myself daily.  Feel free to share my story if it can encourage someone to believe that they can do the same!  The key is to be consistent, and you can reach your goals!  Thanks for taking time to read my story.  🙂
