My Fitness Journey

So if you’ve been following me on Instagram or Twitter then you know that I’ve been working out with a program called Transform 20 by Shaun T. It’s a 20 minute a day workout that goes for six weeks.

It’s intense. More than I thought it would be.

I’m the kind of person that really needs to be pushed in order for me to want–and I mean really want–to change. And this is the kind of program that does that.

I mentioned it on this IG post but I haven’t pushed myself like this physically in a really long time. Not since I danced and did color guard in high school. But at the time I wasn’t really doing the fitness thing for myself. I was doing it for my team, my coaches, and the judges. I was only pushing because that’s what was expected of me and I had to fulfill those expectations.

But then I graduated and I wasn’t part of a team anymore. My fitness fell on me to maintain. And I didn’t.

Fast-forward a few years and I’m where I was a few months ago. Not hating myself or my body but still not entirely happy. A woman named Hannah reached out to me and said she thought I was capable doing more and going further. And more importantly she planted the thought that I was able to do this for myself.

So for the past six weeks I’ve been pushing and working and sweating harder than I have in years. And this past Sunday I completed the program. So I decided to share my results with you. I know I still have a ways to go to tone up and work on the muscle I want but this was an amazing first step.

Before: August 2018

And now!

April 2019

You might not see a huge difference but I feel it. I feel the muscle and the strength I had coming back. I feel better about my body. And I’m getting to the point where I’m actually enjoying the work. Because it feels good to know what your body can do, to push beyond those limits and go further.

Those six weeks were just the beginning for me and I hope I can show even more of my results down the road.

Until next time x
