|Looking pretty good post-2010 CLX.|
The last time I really committed to change myself in this way was back in 2010 and my primary reason was to try and combat my SAD symptoms. I started a Beachbody workout program (Chalene Xtreme) with Matt. It did wonders and I was able to see my body change in huge ways but life got crazy and I lost my motivation.
When we decided to move back to Colorado, all chances of getting back on track with exercise ended for me. I was emotionally struggling and using all my energy to deal with the changing and stressful situations I was surrounded by.
Fast forward 6 months. Here we are, settled in Colorado. The kids are happy. Matt is SO happy in his job. I am volunteering at the school and teaching English part time. I'm starting to think of my future and how to connect with other people. I truly want to give to others as much as I can. But, I have still been struggling with energy and moodiness. I gained about 10+ pounds in the move and I just feel tired all the time.
3 weeks ago I started something new.
And now I feel SO much better. I have energy. I have more joy. I don't feel like taking a nap every afternoon. I lost 5 pounds.
And even more huge for me is that my cravings are gone.
I have waited these 3 weeks to say anything to be sure but I can honestly say that I feel different.
Thank you to Beachbody, Shakeology and the T25 workout program. Structure, accountability, diet help and a plan are key for me to make any life changes.
