JESSIE’S GIRLS AM-BADASS-ADOR
About 8 months into working out, my progress slowed. I was working with a trainer and loved lifting but was told for weight loss I needed to do more cardio and eat less. So every week my calories went away and my cardio increased. I still had no change in progress but I was feeling so tired and worn out. I had been following Jessie for a while since she was an awesome example of a strong woman with beautiful muscle. So, right away, when her Jessie’s Girls Muscle Building program came out I bought it and couldn’t wait. Here was what I had been looking for this whole time. I knew I could build muscle and lose fat and feel awesome while not starving myself and getting burned out on cardio. I was part of the very first girls who started the first round of Muscle Building and who were in the private Facebook group and have loved watching it grow. This has become such a passion of mine because I have been in such a tough place physically which spills over into mental and emotional struggles. I was very overweight for years and two pregnancies on top of that did not help. I did not feel comfortable being around people because I felt like everyone was looking at me but I knew I needed a change.

After years of saying “this is just my body type” and “I’m big boned,” I realized I was making so many excuses out of fear of the hard work. I had a little toddler that I was too tired to play with because of my weight. So I needed to change. I went to the big and scary gym, wearing the biggest sweatshirt I could hide behind and took a step towards a new lifestyle and journey that has brought me a lot of happiness. I have so far lost about 70 pounds and am on the quest to hit the 100 pound mark. My journey is not over and does not have a finish line. I want to continue pushing myself, getting healthier and more conditioned, and continue to teach my kids to take care of themselves as they grow up. The hardest part is believing you can do it and I want to continue supporting women and letting them know they can.
Frosted Mini Wheats. One of my favorites. I like it because you feel happy because of the yummy frosting coating which gives you your sweet tooth fix BUT little do you know you are getting a secret, sneaky serving of fiber. I like to think that I’m sweet and then finish things off with a little hidden dose of something you are needing….like a healthy serving of honesty. You’re welcome.
