Meet Carolanne J.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for March 4th!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?*
I was uncomfortable in my own skin. I did not feel proud of who I was or how I felt. I had been trying to get the baby weight off(baby #2) the 6 months prior. I was but very slowly, and was not building muscle like I wanted. I knew I didn’t want to be skinny fat. Having two children under 3 and a full time job made it difficult and overwhelming to think about getting the body I dreamed of. I never thought that I could do it.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?*
I had always heard of Insanity and thought it was not something I could ever accomplish. But after 6 months and yo-yoing, I was willing to give it a try. The real push was coming across my coach, Corene Allen. I didn’t know her at all. She was an acquaintance of a friend. As I started seeing her before and afters and inspiring posts for a few weeks I finally decided to contact her. That was the beginning of something great.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?*
Time. Getting out to do a work out. Eating clean. Those were all my biggest obstacles that I just couldn’t tackle. Being able to do a work out at home has been key for me. No matter what, I can find time to do it, even if its at 10 o’clock at night or 4am(which is when I do my work out daily). Having a coach through Beachbody to help guide me has been amazing. To have the guidance on food choices etc. has been great.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?*
After doing Insanity I fell in love with Shaun T. and of course had to try his new program. Love the time frame, perfect for a mommy where time is of the essence.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?*
I became toned and started to see muscle where I didn’t have it before. I am most proud of how my belly is losing the “baby weight”.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?*
My life is completely different. Exercising is a routine now, and eating clean comes natural now. I am confident and proud and still going!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology is AMAZING!!!! So perfect as a breakfast! It’s filling, gives me so much energy and tastes yum. I love the versatility of it, being able to change it up each day keeps it from getting old. I feel healthy.
