Tough Love

14 Jun

I have been thinking alot lately about why I became a Beachbody coach last May and why I still am a Beachbody coach. Last year my main goal was to get healthy myself. I also found it very helpful to have others follow me along my weightloss journey. It was very helpful to work with people who were going through the same thing. Losing weight is hard when you do it the right way. Good things never come easy.

I have worked so hard to get where I am today. 60 pounds in 1 year (80 since Maddox was born). It would have been very difficult to do this on my own. I
would never have been able to do this without the help of my coach, posting and blogging about my progress for accountability, and educating myself on how to do this the RIGHT way.

There are so many weigtloss gimmicks out there. Turn on the television or go online and you will find some dumb contraption, pill, wrap, magic powder, or jiggly hand weights (really?). Everyone wants to improve themselves, but those marketing people are clever and they want to show you the fast and easy way to get the body you deserve. If all of these products “work” so well, then why do we have such a high obesity rate? Why? To put it bluntly, we eat crap and we don’t want to get up and break a good sweat. That’s how I used to feel. I wasted so much time feeling bad about myself. I tried the stupid gimmicks too. No, nothing worked.

Just the other day I ran across a book I had bought on Amazon four or five years ago. I don’t remember the title off hand, but it was something about 12 second workouts. What?! Come on Lindsay! I was desperate, I had no one to show me how to do this. So, I kept failing and failing.

The biggest excuse I hear the most is, time. I don’t have time to workout and eat healthy. Are you kidding me? Maybe you need some tough love? Workout in the morning. Get up earlier and get it done! Last year I got up at 4:30 every morning because my son was 1 and I had to get it done before work and before he got up for the day. I made myself do it because it just had to be done. I have a full time job, a two year old, and a home to take care of.
Some days, it’s not easy, but that’s life.

As for eating healthy. So not hard! I still drink Shakeology every day and I make sure eating fresh fruits, veggies, grains, legumes (all the good stuff) is a huge part of my daily diet. I have found eating healthy is essential for long term health and wellness. Take care of yourselves people.

If I am your Beachbody coach and you would like to connect or you want me to be your Beachbody coach (I’m cheap…free actually) please contact me and let me know. You can always find me on Facebook.
