My daughter and I recently attended the Beachbody Super Saturday in Indianapolis which featured celebrity trainer, Autumn Calabrese. I love going to events like this to learn from the experts and to hear the stories of transformation. The most inspiring part of the meetup was when the leaders asked people to stand up based on how much weight they have lost starting at 5 lbs. More than half the room stood up. Then they asked people to stay standing if they had lost more weight 5 lbs at a time. By the time they got to 100 lbs only a handful of people remained standing. I don’t know why but that made me feel emotional. My daughter said it made her tear up too. I asked her why and she said because she has done it before (3 times) and knows how hard it is.
The concept of 21 days to habit appeals to me. I have tried several of the Beachbody Challenges but ended up losing interest before the 90 days were up. 21 days seems doable to me. The workouts are only 30 minutes. I like that the exercises incorporate both cardio and strength training.
Autumn said at the meet up that she is starting a Challenge May 1st. My daughter and I are in. How about you? Want to join us? Sign up at time2getfit.com and let’s give it our best shot!
