Program: 2018 Total Transformation Challenge - Summer Challenge
What was your biggest challenge / obstacle (s)?
My biggest challenge was changing my eating habits and going to the gym. The challenges our Trainer set up made it fun to go to the gym and having a team really helped as well. The Program’s recipes and tips on eating right also really helped keep me on track.
What motivated you to stay on the course?
Having to weigh in every Friday was a huge motivation through the week. Weighing in helped me stay on track. Our Trainer was also very helpful. He would help me schedule time for different challenges; sometimes needing to try multiple times for different challenges until the results I wanted were achieved.
Did your diet change? If so, How? Please be detailed!
My diet changed significantly. This program provides a great cook book as a guide. I started by eating three to five smaller meals a day. I cut out non-complex carbs like breads, pastries, pastas, rice, and cereal. I found awesome substitutions. For pasta noodles, I made zucchini and summer squash noodles. For cereal, I switched to steel cut oatmeal (The TTC program has a great overnight recipe). For cookies I made no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies (again program’s recipe). I also added more fresh fruits and vegetables and cut down on soda.

How is this experience going to affect you going forward?
I will be sticking with the gym. Now that I’m sure it’s easy to work it in my schedule, I’ll be going more often. Plus, I really like the way I feel. Eating better gives me more energy throughout the day and a more positive attitude.
