This is my Why.

MYWHY

Starting to feel better and went for a long walk today. Had time to do a little reflection. After being sick last week, I had lost 4 pounds and this would make the old me jump for joy. The new me put on my jeans that I think make my booty look awesome (we all have those right??) But my booty that is normally there was covered with sagging fabric. My jeans were loose. The old me would have LOVED this.

The old me, the girl on the left in the photo, would have been terrified to have the booty the girl in photo on the right has now. New me is proud to have that booty and I have done many squats to get there. I would like to thank Kim Kardashian and my hubby (who reminds me sometimes) for letting me get it into my thick head that curves are beautiful too. Let me introduce you to and let you get to know a little about the old me.

I was completely lost and miserable. I had been in and out of some really toxic relationships with people who did not deserve my love and attention. I felt drained, sad, lonely and decided that my unhappiness was because I was not skinny enough ( skinny equaled hot to this girl) to get and keep the right guy. Yep, these are the thoughts of a woman in her 20s that was immature, confused, had low self-esteem and had no idea what she was really worth. I had grown up overweight, shed the weight but was still not happy. So I obviously needed to be thinner. Then I would be perfect and worthy of all things great, especially that true love and family I desired.

This started my spiral into disordered eating. My life started revolving around days of starving myself (diet of cigarettes, coffee and a cup of soup), followed by days of binging, purging, diet pills, laxatives and depression. Eating and not eating consumed my every thought. I stopped spending time with friends and spent a lot more time alone. My biggest joy was that I was able to fit into a size 0. Guess what??I was more miserable than I was in the size 6 that my old boyfriend convinced me meant I was a “BIG” girl. I was in a hole and fighting desperately to find the way out.

When I tell this story, I am often asked how I got out of it. It was not something that happened over night. I knew I was in trouble and I knew that if I did not get out of it soon, I might never be able to. Plus my family was starting to ask questions and I could not stand lying anymore. They were concerned and they had every right to be. I was falling apart.

So I slowly stopped the days of binging, purging and diet pills. I started going back to the gym, I started spending time with friends again and I stopped convincing myself that my weight was what was keeping me from finding happiness. I needed to constantly remind myself that my worth was not tied to my weight or pant size.

It took me years to get it all together and I was still struggling when I met my husband. We dated long distance and there were times that when I was alone struggled with not eating for stretches of time. Then we got married and I had to make the choice to either let my disordered eating effect our married life or let go of that completely and thankfully I chose the latter. Only I could make the changes necessary to make that happen.

I bet you are wondering…. how did I end up where I am now. How did I decide to not only go from one end of the spectrum to actually wanting to help people lose weight in a healthy way?

After having our daughter I feared that those anxieties and doubts about my body would return and somedays they were there but then I discovered PIYO then 21 Day Fix and the Beachbody coaching community. This was life changing for me, for the first time I was able to focus on getting my body on track in a healthy way. This was new ground for me.

Because of this community and the people in it, I am mentally, stronger and healthier than I have ever been in my life. Physically I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin. I am fully committed to being a role model for my daughter. Someone that she can look up to and someone who can teach her a positive body image.

I am also fully committed to helping my past, present and future clients do the same. Our journey’s may all be different but we can find common ground in the process.

My next online motivation, accountability and workout group starts soon and I would love to have you with me. Let me know if you are ready to chat!

Core De Force Results and Review

Core De Force Results

I did not do a week by week results post for Core De Force because I wanted to wait till the end and give my results and opinion. First of all, Core De Force is my freakin’ soul mate program. I LOVE IT!!! The focus of Core De Force is on your core, total body strength and conditioning. My results have been incredible and I love that I haven’t used any equipment at all. I am beyond impressed with my results and the overall program. I went in with the goal of losing the 10 pounds that I had gained after the miscarriage that I suffered this past fall. I did not get all the way there but almost. It was also the holidays, weight loss over the holidays?? Yes!!!

I did the entire 30 Days of Core De Force by following the supplied meal guide, drinking Shakeology daily and healthy snack options. It was the holidays so I did have a few treats here and there. I was able to stay track minus a few meals over the 30 days of Core De Force.

Core De Force Results

I love the calorie burn I get from Core De Force!

This upcoming Monday January 9th, I will starting over with Day 1 using the Deluxe Core De Force version. This version adds in some new workouts like MMA Kick Butt, Agility Strength and Agility Power. I can not wait to try them and these ones also utilize the Agility ladder that comes in the deluxe pack! Another awesome part is that Beachbody on Demand has released 2 new workouts MMA Speed 2.0 and MMA Shred 2.0. I will swap these out instead of the regular version and I am sure my results will get even better!! I love that I can create a new schedule for my second round. Nothing worse than getting bored with your routine.

Since the holidays are now over, it is time for me to forget about temptations and get back on track. This Friday I will be kick starting my after holidays group by doing the 3 Day Refresh with a half-dozen other ladies from my group. The 3 Day Refresh is a cleanse that is low-calorie and still keeps you pretty satisfied. I will update you with my results from that! I feel pretty gross after the holidays and I have been looking forward to resetting my system.

Getting out of my routine does not make my body happy! I enjoyed the holidays but it is time to get things going properly and get back to my routine. We have no events planned or trips for the next upcoming month. That means I have an opportunity to really tackle Core De Force 100% for the next 4 weeks. I enjoyed that holidays and I always make room for balance in my life. If you do not have balance you will not stick with it!!

I am so excited to share my results with you and I have been making some crazy progress in  my core and on the scale. I have a 2.5 year old and she was a c-section baby, my core needs some work! With that being said my core will never be perfect but I am trying to get it as good as it can be. I am so proud of my progress with Core De Force!

21 Day Fix Results: Week 2

21 Day Fix Results Week 2

21 Day Fix Results Week 2

I am back and so excited to share with you my 21 Day Fix results from week 2. Being the second week I was back in the groove of following the program and using the portion control system. I can tell you I love using the containers. It is not for everyone but it is definitely for me! It really helps me to take a step back and look at my portion sizes.

I have to mention this again because it is so important, if you use all the containers you will never be hungry. I was always satisfied with the amount of food for the day. I used to never be a breakfast eater and my breakfast of Shakeology is my favorite meal of the day some days! I mean if you can have chocolate for breakfast you are not going to crave sweets the rest of the day!

What has my day been looking like?

Breakfast: Shake and fruit
Snack: Plain Yogurt or Hard Boiled Egg
Lunch: Leftovers or Salad with Chicken
Snack: Fruit/Nuts or Hummus/Veggies
Dinner: Salmon (any protein), Asparagus (any veggies) and Sweet Potato/Quinoa or Brown Rice
Drink: Water, Water and more Water 🙂

Since it is Week 2 the workouts are not as hard as they were last week, definitely still very challenging though. I am also not as sore as last week, leg day had my quads still burning though! For those of you that are curious about the workouts, there is variety and you do not get bored. For the week you have Cardio, Upper Body, Lower Body, Pilates, Cardio, Mix of Cardio/Weights and then Yoga.

The third week was much more challenging since it also involved a move for us. Not a regular move but a move from New York to Dallas. SO there was some traveling, eating out etc. I will share more about this in my next post with my third and final results from the 21 Day Fix!

21 Day Fix Results: Week 1

A sample of my 21 Day Fix Meals

A sample of my 21 Day Fix Meals

21 Day Fix results from week 1!!! I have done the program before and loved it. I lost 15 pounds doing the extreme version after having Emma. I have had a rough few months and decided to re-do 21 Day Fix to re-set my body.

In August we found out that we were pregnant with our second baby. Most of August I spent nauseous and with little energy. I was not consistent with my workouts or with eating clean. This was also how most of September looked too. Then in the 3rd week of September we went for our first Ultra Sound and found out we had a missed miscarriage, the baby had stopped growing but my body still thought it was pregnant.

The last month was filled with physical and emotional complications from the missed miscarriage and then an incomplete miscarriage. Last week I was ready to start trying to get back on track and lose the 15 pounds that I had gained since the beginning of August. I knew that 21 Day Fix was a great place to start!

Since I had been down this road before, I knew what to expect food and exercise wise. The great thing about the 21 Day Fix and also the biggest misconception is that you think you will always be hungry. I never feel hungry on this plan. I always start with breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner and sometimes even an evening snack. That is depending on how late I have dinner.

The most common questions I hear is: “Do I have to finish all of the food?” That is a good sign right?

What about cravings? I used to crave sugar a lot. This has all changed after I started drinking Shakeology. Specifically, vegan chocolate shakeology. I love this stuff. It has been life changing for me. It keeps me satisfied and tricks me into thinking that I had indulged in something bad! I switched to vegan because the regular version was giving me belly bloat.

The weekend is my biggest struggle because we normally like to have some red wine on Friday and Saturday nights. The amazing part is that 21 Day Fix lets you drink wine!!! or the cocktail of your choice. It is all in the program, this is why it is easier to stick to than any other plan I have ever done.

I am on to week 2 and I can not wait to share with you the rest of this journey! Stay tuned 🙂 If you are interested in joining my next 21 Day Fix Challenge Group, here is how you can contact me:

21 Day Better You Bootcamp

JUNE-BANNER

I am about to launch an amazing new challenge group!! I have been brainstorming new ideas to help motivate my present and future clients. I had been looking for new ways to provide support, motivation and accountability. There will be new health tips specific to women’s physical and mental health, motivation, recipes and accountability just for you!!

This new group will be kicking off on June 20th, 2016!!

Are you looking for a change in your health and fitness routine? How many times have you started a program but not given it 100% of your self?

I have been there! I have started programs and really wanted to succeed but I did not know how to keep on track. I would workout like crazy then eat all the wrong foods afterwards. I was impatient when I would not see results instantly. Sound familiar? I had no idea that a lot of the time I was undoing all of the hard work that I had put in.

So, then I would get off track of the program, quit and figure that I just was meant to be out of shape and could never get the body I want. It is all genetics right??? hahahah WRONG.

I never really realized that no matter how many hours I put into exercise that nothing was going to out work a bad diet!

Eventually I discovered Beachbody and did the 21 Day Fix Program.  It was only 21 Days right? I did the program with some ladies (now my team members). I figured this was my best option, I was a new mom and did not have the time to hit the gym the way I used to. I was willing to commit and try anything to get my body back after baby.

Here are some of the things that I took away from being in a challenge group using 21 Day Fix, Shakeology and portion control:

  • Nutrition is more important than working out. You need to have both but if your nutrition is not on point, you will not lose the weight. You can spend hours on the treadmill and you will not lose unless you are eating properly.
  • You need to have support. Not matter how you decide to lose weight, you need the support of those around you. The great thing about challenge groups is that even if your family and friends do not support you, the group does. Anything you are experiencing or feeling, I am sure that some one else in the group will be sharing the same feelings or experience.
  • Having a plan and program to follow is one of the biggest keys to success. When the program is laid out for you, there is no guessing. You have a schedule that will tell you what workouts to do on what days. What you should be eating and when etc. Plus the 21 Day Fix comes with amazing containers that will help you to figure out portions. Believe me it works!
  • Drinking Shakeology daily. I have said this many times, Shakeology is one of my secret weapons. It is not a protein shake or an instant weight loss trick. I drank a million protein shakes before Shakeology and none of them did for me what it does. Because I had so many experiences with shakes in the past, I was a skeptic of the price. I gave it a shot as part of the program and I am so glad that I did. I drink mine in the morning and I am not hungry for 3-4 hours after. I stopped craving sweets and it took the pressure off of figuring out what to have for breakfast daily. Plus, it can be made in less than a minute. You can not get that with any meal! Another bonus: it has replaced any and all vitamins that I had taken in the past!
  • Having someone to check in on you and hold you accountable is priceless. I take my job as a coach to my challengers very seriously. It is amazing to have someone who will answer your questions and if I can not answer them I will try my best to find the answer for you. Previously to this I was writing my blog posts and wanting to help people with information but with my beachbody partnership, I actually get to help people and change lives every single day. My challengers are what motivates me everyday to keep going and to help more people!

The 21 Day Better You Bootcamp starts on June 20th and here are the requirements:

You make me your coach by going to my site and creating a free profile which makes me your COACH!

You contact me by messaging me using the message tab on my Facebook Page to be considered for a spot in the group.

You will be doing the 21 Day Fix Program or the 21 Day Fix Extreme. We will chat to decide which one is right for you.

You will be required to replace Shakeology for one of your meals each day for the very best results.  My goal is to teach you how to plan the other meals of the day so that you get the results you have always wanted.  At the end of the 21 days the choice is yours to continue with Shakeology. There will be no pressure in that 🙂

You must engage daily to the private Facebook group to share with us about your day, be accountable and participate in the group discussion at least once each day.

Plus… You get to workout in your own home but be connected to me 24/7 for support, fitness, recipes, nutrition and tips. Facebook is awesome for connecting via messages daily!

I am committed to getting you healthy and fit!! Are you ready to commit to yourself and your health?? You can do this!!!

5 Reasons you should join an MLM

 

joemma

We all have friends or family members that are a part of a MLM (multilevel marketing) and I am sure you have been approached at some point to join them. Why haven’t you jumped on board? I can not answer that for you but I can tell you why I did and maybe you can relate to my story.

I am a stay at home mom and I am not going to tell you that we were hurting for money, in debt or any of the other reasons some people started their MLM journey. I am a stay at home mom and we really did not need the extra income but I wanted to have something that I could do for me. I had been blogging for 2 years and loved it, my blog had started to bring in some modest income and I was putting it away for a vacation fund. Through blogging, I had signed up with some affiliates so that my blog could garner me some residual income. This was working for me and Beachbody was my best-selling affiliate product. I was also a Beachbody customer and had lost my baby weight with the 21 Day Fix and PIYO programs.

I realized that I had been actively selling Beachbody products on my site, writing reviews and articles about it, and had even encouraged some readers to become coaches in Beachbody. I finally decided to look into the opportunity myself. I am kicking myself now that I had not looked into it sooner. Why was I so reluctant to join?

I was reluctant based on all the negative things I had been exposed to out there. I was also afraid of becoming the type of Beachbody coach that would be in your face too much and lose friends over it. I realized that these reasons were silly. I needed to do what I wanted to do for me and not care what others thought. I joined, jumped into starting my business and have not looked back. I can tell you, I have not heard any negative feedback, I have not lost any friends (that I know of), and I actually made a whole new set of friends. That is one of the 5 reasons you should join an MLM. These are my top 5 reasons for joining an MLM today:

  1. Feeling of community: This is my favorite part. Being a stay at home mom, I often find myself looking for outside connections. Without the work place there is not a lot of ways for you to connect with like-minded individuals that have a passion for the same things that you do. When I joined Beachbody and Team Inspire, I found myself all of a sudden aligned with some amazing individuals that have been there to celebrate my successes and support me in my struggles. The relationships that I have made are in valuable to me and I know to the other women in my team feel the same way.
  2. Freedom to be your own boss: yes, I know you probably hear this one all the time. The reason you do is because it is true. You get to run your own business, you can log as many hours as you want in the day. If you want to go to a play date and do your work later on in the day, guess what??? you can!! If you are not already at home like I was, I will state the obvious…. Do not run out and quit your job right away. Start out part-time and work your way to that point. This may take a while due to maybe not having the time to put in to your business right away. With commitment and hard work it can and will happen for you if you really want it.
  3. Unlimited earning potential: unlike other jobs, you do not have a salary cap or a bonus structure that you can hit a ceiling on. The incredible thing is that you can put the work in and see if pay off in the long run and pay off big!! *I have seen people on my team make upwards of 4-5K in a week. So why not you?
  4. Training: there is an abundance of training available to you. I know with Beachbody and in Team Inspire we are always being offered trainings. Everything that you need to start your business, keep it going and to train others is out there for you. If you can not find it, the community I spoke of before is also there to help you figure it out!
  5. Personal growth: all MLM networks encourage personal development and I am so happy that Beachbody and Team Inspire have motivated me to start working on me. I have never been the person to read personal development books but there is a reason people say “Leaders are Readers”. The best leaders never stop working on themselves and these companies encourage and give you the resources to do just that.

What had inspired me to write this post right now? This month I have opened up applications for coaching with Team Inspire. If you are a fit mommy with an established brand/blog, or a fitness enthusiast who is hoping to take a leap into the fitness industry, but you’re not sure how to start, I want to help you!  This time around I will only be accepting 20 new coaches into our team. When you join Team INSPIRE this month, you will be trained with our new leadership team and will receive thousands of dollars worth of training in branding, marketing, relationship-building, professional development, and more.

If you are considering becoming a coach on a team that implements non-spammy marketing strategies, the time is now! I would love to partner with you and help you take your fitness brand/blog to the next level. The same applies if you have a passion for fitness and just do not know how to start. I will only be accepting applications this month. For more information message me using the message tab on my Facebook page or email me joannebjung@gmail.com to set up a phone interview this week!

*Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody coaching opportunity. Each coach’s income depends on his/her own efforts, skill and diligence.

The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Review

The Master’s Hammer and Chisel review, finally! I have finally finished the program, I am not used to doing a program that is 8 weeks long. Even though it was 8 weeks, I loved it!

The workouts were challenging, and I really got into using weights more than I ever have been. The real shocker for me was that…. I actually preferred that Hammer workouts. Being a 21 Day Fix junkie, I assumed that I would prefer Autumn’s chisel workouts but I loved Sagi and his strength workouts more. The hammer workouts were something that I looked forward to and I even ended up increasing my free weights twice!

The diet was a challenge because we had some vacation time planned during the 8 weeks. Like I said earlier, 8 weeks was a long time for me to be strict with food. We travel a fair amount during the year and I normally enjoy food on my vacations and return to normal when I get back. So, if we are being honest here, I failed at the eating portion of the program. The meal guide was similar to the 21 Day Fix diet and included the portion control containers as well. Not sticking to the diet really effected my results for sure.

This workout program is not for beginners, There is equipment that is needed and most people do not have a chin up bar just hanging around the house. It is also not a major weight loss program, I found at times I was gaining weight and this would be due to intense amount of weight lifting that is involved in the program. I had never felt stronger by the end of the 8 weeks and I am really impressed with the fact that I had upped my weights twice. If you are a beginner, I would suggest starting off with the 21 Day Fix and then moving up to this program after a couple of rounds.

Will I do the program again?? Heck ya! I am currently doing a round of 21 Day Fix Extreme before I leave on holidays. I plan on giving Hammer and Chisel another shot when I get back. Jon will be re-joining me in this next round. He had to quit in the middle of doing Hammer and Chisel because he had injured his neck, not doing the program but go-carting at a work conference! I am psyched that he will be jumping back in with me, I love working out with a partner.

If you are interested in doing it with us or learning about any of the other programs that we offer, reach out to me via my Facebook page.
