Know what happens when you put work first, yourself last, and smoke and drink in all your spare time? You get fat. Get divorced. Never have any energy. And hate the way you look at feel.
Know what happens when you realize that life’s passing you by and that if you don’t change now, your three little kids are going to grow up without a father? You throw out your smokes and your booze, order P90X, and set out to change your life.
In the 1st 45 days of P90X, I lost 45 pounds and gained a tremendous amount of strength, energy, and happiness. One of the greatest things about this program is that Tony shows you how to modify every move until you’re strong enough to do them full out. And I got to say, modifying the routines and still achieving my desired results was what kept me motivated to keep pushing play every single day.
In just a month and a half, I went from a size 44 (which was tight) to a size 36, and my body fat went from 31% to 14%—so I had to go out and buy new clothes. Before P90X, my triglycerides where at 1500 (10 times higher than normal), but now they’re stable at 105. Not only am I happy about that stat, so is my doctor!
But I couldn’t have done it on my own. My biggest cheerleader my Coach, Valerie, who was very instrumental in my success. She was always there for me when I needed support, and when I started thinking about becoming a Coach, Valerie was the nudge I needed to take that step. But all along, my #1 motivation to change were my kids—those little rascals are everything to me. So even though I’ve lost a ton of weight, my biggest transformation has been inside of me. I’m so thankful that I put that DVD in the first day and stuck with it. People are starting to notice the new person I’ve become, and their compliments feel great.
Not only do I now work out every day, I also drink Shakeology, take the Results and Recovery Formula, Joint Formula, and eat P90X protein bars every day, too. Shakeology’s great because it fuels my body with proper nutrition while giving me tons of energy. R&R helps me recover quicker from my workouts by reducing the pain in my muscles. The Joint Formula has saved my knees. And the P90X bars give me that extra boost of energy I need after a long day of work, and before I work out.
Since my journey first began two years ago, I’ve completed P90X2 and INSANITY, and am currently doing Body Beast and RevAbs. Living healthy and Team Beachbody have become permanent parts of my life and I’ve never been happier or have had this much confidence. Thanks Beachbody, you saved me.
