The Skinny - I'm Getting Fit

So if you follow me on Twitter or are a friend on Facebook, you may have noticed I have started talking about fitness. Reason being, it's my new focus (not that I will ever stop focusing on coffee, make no mistake about that!). I started on this journey the last week of July and now have the encouragement and confidence to share with you what I'm doing. 

My sister over at Muffin-Top-Less Mom has been a certified personal trainer for a couple of years and has been urging me to jump on the fitness train and start working out. I admit I wasn't ready the first 87 times she asked me but I finally did it and started a new program by Beachbody and Shaun T called T25. It's a 10 week program that focuses on your core, upper and lower body, cardio and can be done in the comfort of your own home in only 25 minutes per workout. Since most people have an excuse about not having enough time to workout, this offers a great excuse buster being that you can get in and get it done in less than half an hour!

I have recently "graduated" from my first 10 weeks of T25 and with the great results I got from the first 10, I've decided to do a replay jumping into another 10 weeks. Here's my results: in the first 10 weeks, I've shed 15 pounds and 21 inches - 5 off my waist, 4 off my hips, 3 off my lower ab area, 3 off each thigh (that's huge for me!), 1 off each arm and 1 off my chest. The proof here really is in the pictures..


         BEFORE                                AFTER ONLY 7 WEEKS
I took this after picture about 3 weeks ago so I'm due for another update soon.

I'm also eating an unprocessed, healthy diet including Shakeology because let's face it, you can't outwork a crappy diet. I plan to share more recipes I'm using here with you as well. I feel better than I have in a long time and am real life proof that hard work and a little determination pays off. I've also come out of my comfort zone, making the choice to become a Beachbody Coach which means I can encourage, support and help you to get you the results you want just like I did! Shoot me an email or a message for more information. I have Challenge Groups starting each month that you can be an exculsive member of which will help keep you accountable, on track and offer support from me and other members of the group.

What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?

I r Eeewww ally wish I could afford thus program. I have heard great things about it. I have a friend from high school who is doing groups on Facebook and had invited me to join her groups but I can't afford to buy the program. So she is going to add me to her menu planning part of it so I can follow that part of it. :)

Thanks! I can't wait to see you!

It is a really good program. I hemmed and hawed about the price for awhile before ordering it - I figured it's less than a gym membership. Good about the menu planning, that's a big part of it!

Coffee Lovin' Mom said...

What excellent progress! I'm especially impressed with your willingness to coach others, stepping as you said, out of your comfort zone. You go, girl!

Coffee Lovin' Mom said...

Fantastic, Amy! Go you!

Coffee Lovin' Mom said...

you should be screaming this from the mountain tops! taking a step outside of our comfort zones is always a good thing.

Coffee Lovin' Mom said...

Holy wow. Great job! I'm still pondering T25 :) I'll let you know!

Coffee Lovin' Mom said...

Thanks! Feeling good about my progress so far

Coffee Lovin' Mom said...

I'm not a good screamer but I've been gently reminding people

Coffee Lovin' Mom said...

Yes let me know - I'm sure it's a heck of a lot easier than Insanity

Hey babe. I'm sitting here watching T25 infomercials and thinking, hmmm, should I do this? I've been going to the gym, focusing on improving my eating, but I feel like I really need a kick in the pants. (Not to mention I hate my personal trainer, we are so oil and water.) Your progress with T25 is so inspiring. Hmmmm.

You know I will be here to kick your pants when you are ready mama!
