I wanted to share the results from the program I just completed....Body Beast.
The picture on the left is a before and after from when I started Body Beast in February to when I finished on May 7th. The picture below is a before and after from when I started a year and a half ago. I never thought I could get results from home workout programs but I've been proven wrong. After years of killing myself in the gym I love that I don't have to leave my home to get results and I don't have to work out for hours everyday. (I normally do 30 minute workouts)
Body Beast was one of the hardest programs for me mentally because the scale went up. During the bulk phase I was up 10 pounds 😳 During the last phase (which was the last 3 weeks) I lost about 6 of that so I guess I gained 4 pounds of muscle. I gained an inch in my chest and 1/2 inch in both arms. The meal plan for this was tough also because it called for me to eat 9 yellow containers a day during the bulk phase. That's a lot of carbs!! I was eating about 2,000 calories a day.
I thought about quitting on more than one occasion and I know if it had not been for my challenge group encouraging me, I would have thrown in the towel. It was really, really hard for me mentally to see the scale going up after working so hard to lose the weight. I really had to learn what it means when people say the scale is not a true reflection of your progress. That's why measurements and pictures are so important. 📷
I have learned that you truly have to trust the process in these programs....even when it really seems like it's not working. I've also learned that I really do love weight lifting 💕 (more than cardio)
If you are ready to get started on your journey, I can promise you that you will never be alone. If you are interested in this program, let me know. I learned a lot through the process that I would change the next time around and I'm happy to share all of that with you. Message me if you want to make your health a priority 💪🏼
