My number one excuse every time I would start (and eventually stop) was TIME. I would always tell myself "I'm so busy...I'm working full time...I have a kid...I need sleep" You get the jist ;)
When Landon was born, we had to spend several nights in the hospital due to him getting a fever at less than a week old (all ended up being fine!) But I'll never forget sitting up at 2am in the hospital chair (half asleep) feeding Landon and watching a Focus T25 infomercial. It was one of those super long infomercials like 30 minutes and I felt excited the longer I watched it and remember thinking "25 minutes?! I can do that! Oh, and there is a modifier named Tania! Tania had a baby and she can do the workouts, that means I can!" I didn't order it immediately but once I finally recovered from the birth which was a long hard recovery from an extremely fast labor and a 9.3 lb baby, I ordered it. I remember feeling excited and when it came I did the workouts but I didn't order Shakeology and I didn't have any contact with a coach and guess what? I quit somewhere along the line. It wasn't just suddenly one day I quit. I think I slowly stopped believing that I could do it and before I knew it I was pregnant again with baby #2.
I had a healthier pregnancy with Riley (baby 2). I worked out at Pure Barre classes for most of my pregnancy and didn't eat like I was eating for two and I felt so much better than I did when I was pregnant with Landon. I was way less achy, had less water retention and gained less weight.

This time around when I started my postpartum weight loss journey I knew it was different. I just had a fire in me and I knew NOTHING not even TIME was going to stop me. But I knew that in order to not lose steam and motivation I needed to find a program that was going to maximize my time. And that is where T25 and 21 Day Fix came in! Both are 25 minute or 30 minute workouts. And they work! I did T25 for the first month of my journey until I finally decided I was going to take a leap and order the 21 Day Fix. I had started pinning articles and recipes about "the fix" on Pinterest about a month before and kept seeing people have great results in just 21 Days! I'm so glad I ordered it because I literally feel like the program and Beachbody has changed my life! And I know it can change yours too!
I am starting my second round of the 21 Day Fix on Monday August 29th. You still have time to join me. Don't overthink it, just do it! I am a mom, a wife, a friend AND I work full time and I have time for this program, you do too! Fill out this form to join my challenge group where we motivate and support each other!
