Tuesday Transformation: Client Spotlight

Tuesday, 8 March 2016

I'm so excited to share with you my dear client's 21 day testimonial for today's Transformation Tuesday!! Every month I offer online fitness camps to individuals with health + fitness goals. Some have goals to build muscle, others weight loss, and still others are just looking to change up their routine. This woman in particular has just finished my 21 day program! This program consists of 30 minute workouts 6xdays a week with an easy to follow portion-fixed nutrition guide, 30 meals of my favorite meal ever & access to my exclusive online accountability group! She has totally crushed it and is now well on her way toward carrying out these habits as a lifestyle! If you are interested in participating in one of my future fitness camps, click here. I hope you are inspired and enjoy reading her testimony! 

"Growing up I was very athletic. I played multiple sports and my coaches acted as personal trainers. I didn’t feel that I was responsible for working out or watching what I ate as I always had someone doing that for me. I was invincible. My sophomore year I started dating a boy who felt much differently about my body. He didn’t see me as the strong athlete but rather as the chubby girl. He slowly started putting me down and often told me not to eat or that I needed to go work out. And I listened. I lost weight. And I felt horrible about myself. Self hatred had become my motivation. I was desperate for someone to love me and I thought I had to look a certain way for that to happen. When we broke up, it was as if I had to revolt to the other side of the spectrum to prove I didn’t need him. I ate whatever I wanted and stopped working out. And I gained weight. And I still hated myself. I tried every diet in the book and also gave up on each one. It took me a long time to understand that working out and eating right were not grounds for someone else to love me, but rather because I love myself.

When Courtney first reached out to me I was not in a place I could focus on self love. I admired her Instagram posts and prayed that God give me the confidence to find that love for myself that she displayed every day. Thankfully, she did not give up on me.

I am a full time graduate student—not only do I have class and homework but I have about 20 hours of internship a week. I also work 30+ hours a week. I live out of my car and would often hit up the drive thru rather than bringing lunch because “it was easy.” I found comfort in the excuse “I don’t have time.” And then Courtney introduced me to the 21 Day Fix.

In 21 days I lost about 8.5 lbs and 14.75 inches overall. And I gained so much more. I no longer look at healthy eating as a “diet” but rather a lifestyle. I don’t see exercise as a burden but rather an opportunity to improve myself. I learned it’s not about the big goal, but rather the small life changes that get you there. And I learned that I am more than a number on the scale. 30 Days of self love were exactly what I didn’t know I needed and I am so grateful to have the support and encouragement of people I have never even met. Somehow not knowing them made it easier to open up and held me accountable. They had no personal interest; I would really only be disappointing myself.

Some days are still a struggle, but I have learned strategies to help get me through. I find new ways to love myself every day—and it doesn’t hurt that I have a whole new wardrobe now that I can fit into my clothes again! The small victories have become the biggest. God always has a plan and I am thankful he sent me Courtney to help me get there.

Before is on the left; After on the right."
