Secret #1: How I Got Into The Best Shape Of My Life From Home, Used A Simple And Proven Workout Schedule To FINALLY Stay Consistent And Rediscovered Myself Outside Of Motherhood
👉Before my daughter was born I used to spend hours on the elliptical or treadmill at the gym trying to work off the guilt of a meal that googling and diet culture taught me as the only way to lose my unwanted weight.
👉I was obsessed over calories and literally restricted myself so much that all I could think about was food. All. Day. Long. Counting calories and excessive cardio guilt.
👉I felt so out of control but I got pregnant, brushed that problem under the rug and figured it was just life now.
⏩Fast forward 1 baby, 30lbs+ to lose postpartum, NO idea what I was doing, NO time or help with my daughter to make it to a gym and desperate to get my body back...
Insert these insane people on this little DVD workout my husband did that I swore I would never try... nope, not for me. WAY to uncoordinated to be caught doing that.
I waited for my husband to go to work, locked the door in case he came home early cuz I was not about to be caught doing this... and I hit play.
After years of being a cardio queen at the gym, I don’t think I had ever done a workout that effective in under 30 minutes.
I liked it and I didn't have to go anywhere...
But it was the same workouts over and over again and I got BORED. That's when I discovered that these DVD's were actually out of date and they had an entire platform of hundreds of workouts on-demand. Which was like Netflix but for fitness, right? So I could stream any program on my tv/laptop and each program came with a calendar. All I had to do was print or screenshot the calendar, wake up and while my daughter did her morning tummy time I hit play on the workout that calendar told me to do that day...
❌No guess work.
❌No putting together my own workout
❌No YouTubing random workouts each day
✅Just hit play and be done in UNDER 30 minutes
✅Follow the 4-8 week program I chose through.
✅Then when I finished I could do that program again OR switch to a different one!
All for FAR less than I was paying for a MONTHLY membership to the gym I never made it to...(before I even had the kids stopping me from going in the first place haha)
And guess what!?
9 months later, thanks to creating and then stealing my husbands login and his inspiration to try it out in the first place- I lost ALL the baby weight, FROM HOME while my daughter did tummy time or literally crawled all over me haha.
Seriously, not one of my workouts is perfect but they became consistent and consistency over perfection is what produces results!
*Results vary based on starting point and effort;)
It had all of my friends asking me how I did it and got me SO inspired to help them... insert this door opening into something that gave me a sense of purpose outside of the monotonous daily duties of wiping butts all day. SO, I started these text threads with my friends to bug them to keep going with me...
I loved encouraging them and it kept me accountable to myself too and that spiraled into a galore of possibilities for my future... leaving me going to bed thinking, “This can't be it for me...”
Scrolling through social media watching all these fitness influencers build these incredible bodies and lives for themselves while I sit on the sidelines "watching",
"If they could do it, why not me too?"
Growing up, all I ever wanted was to be a stay-at-home mom... but that was also before the inevitable challenges that navigated me to that dream come true. Life's a journey not a destination and it took me a while to grasp that it was ok to want more...
More meaning. More joy. More confidence. More freedom. More impact.
Seriously, it’s ok my fellow self-induced-mom-guilter. It’s OK.
Not everyone is going to feel what you’re feeling. Why? Because God puts these desires in our heart UNIQUE TO US; and when you can lean into faith instead of fear, you allow yourself to see that He put those desires in your heart for a reason so that you may become who you were MADE to be.
Matthew 7:11 says, “If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!?”
Seriously! How much would you GIVE to your babies to make their dreams come true, right?
Which leads us into the googlespace of information and how it brought me to....
