Back in 2015, I was struggling…A LOT. I was dealing with hardships at work as well as at home and found myself depressed and at my heaviest weight. Being in healthcare, I knew that if I started making healthier choices like exercising at least 30 minutes daily, eating more veggies than carbs, focusing on gratitude, etc….I would begin to see positive changes mentally and physically.
So I started out with Shaun T’s program T25. T stood for Time and 25mins was all it took to get through the workouts each day. And I committed. I committed to these 25 min workouts every day for 5 weeks and I dialed in my nutrition while following the program. I shocked myself when I weighed myself at the end of the program and saw that not only had I lost inches, but I lost 25lbs! I fell in love!
Somewhere along the way, my coach had shared her story as a cancer survivor and how these programs pulled her up out of the hardship she was experiencing and changed her whole life. I watched her story for a while and then decided that this was just the right fit for me. I wanted to help others with similar stories and backgrounds change their lives as well.
Fast forward a couple of years and family and work hardships arose again and this time I decided that I could save myself some money and do it all on my own. I let my challengers down and left coaching. I gave in to the lies that were in my head at the time…and I slowly spiraled back into the bad habits I had started with. And I gained all the weight back…and then some.
In October 2018, I was starting to come back around through different things that were coming to my attention. I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos (auto-immune low thyroid), I was tired a lot, and dealing with a lot of depression. It wasn’t until I saw a picture of myself on a family trip with mine and my sister’s family that I realized how far I had spiraled out of control. I did not like the way I looked….I did not like what I saw staring back at me.
I had to do something! So I jumped back into what I knew worked for me and decided I was no longer going to stop doing what I love just because life gets in the way sometimes. No…this time I decided that I was going to do this for me! So I started out with LIIFT4 which was a new-ish program that focuses on H.I.I.T (High-intensity interval training) exercises, core exercises, and strength training. To say that I LOVED it would be an understatement! It fed my every workout need! It was 30 mins long, 4 days a week, with rest days in between. I lost inches and 17lbs! It was amazing! I became a coach again so that I could get a discount on my Shakeology but then started coaching as well.
Then…Shaun T came out with his new program Transform 20. This program focuses on not just the physical transformation but also the mind. Shaun T is constantly empowering you to set your mind to new limits and work past your comfort zone…but he’s doing the exercises right there with you….right by your side! And when I start to get tired and want to give up…the workout is over! It’s only 20 minutes! But boy does it give you a good whole body workout and make you sweat!
There are three different levels of Transform 20:
Commit – Pushes you to commit to the first two weeks and to completing each exercise even if you have to modify your way through….even if you have to do it without the step.
Climb: Pushes you to climb to new levels and push past your comfort zone
Conquer: The last two weeks of the program – pushes you to commit to take all that you have learned in the past 4 weeks and takes you to a new level so that you conquer the program and your results!
I can not wait to finish the last 4 weeks of the program! So excited to see where it brings me! Want to join in the fun? Transform 20 is on sale for the month of February and early exclusive access to the coach test group ends February 6th. So jump on in! Not your thing? There are so many other programs to choose from to fit your needs! Send me an email or comment and I’d love to chat with you about it! ❤ Sarah
