What was your biggest challenge/obstacle?
I would have to say my biggest challenge was finding enough time in the day to work out. I work many hours and find myself tired at the end of the day. It took a lot of motivation to stay focused.
What motivated you to stay on course?
I was motivated by the thought of getting into shape again. I know how good it feels once you get started working out and I was excited to experience that again. It's nice to fit into my clothes again as well too!!!
Did your diet change?
Yes. I was already eating healthy but my portions were too large. I also experimented with different kinds of organic foods. I still have occasional "cheat" times but I try to limit my portions all the time. Everything in moderation!!!
What advice could you give others that want the same results?
Excuses only work for so long then you just have to get off your lazy butt and do it! Just imagine your body the way you want it and it will happen with work and determination.
How is this experience going to affect you going forward?
I will continue working out even after the challenge ends. It has motivated me to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I plan on keeping these changes with me for the rest of my life!
