I have been posting deals and money saving ideas for a while but never actually introduced myself. My name is Bekah and I'm 33 years old. I live in the great state of Pennsylvania with my husband and two daughters who are 5 and 8 years old. I am a stay-at-home-mom but I also: blog (which you know already), babysit part-time, clean office buildings, teach Sunday school, and I plan on going back to school after the holiday season. When I get some quiet time, I like to read my Kindle, grab a little television, or try a new recipe.
Gaining Weight and Losing Health
Growing up I was one of those petite girls who could eat anything at any time and never gain a pound. I'm 5'2 and I never weighed over 120 lbs until I had children. After I gave birth to my first child at age 25, I was in a comfortable size 8 so I didn't worry at all.
When I was 28, I gave birth to my second child and things started to go down hill. I got headaches a lot, had sleep issues, couldn't lose the weight, had digestive issues, my hair dried out, my anxiety and depression spiraled, and I actually got chronic dry eye so badly that I couldn't wear contact lenses anymore. Medically I checked out fine and I figured that this is just what happens when you are a stressed-out mother of two small children.
Why Beach Body?
Now I have no more excuses! No more diapers, potty training, wiping noses, or up all night with babies. Why am I so tired all the time? Why isn't my body bouncing back? Why is my depression so out of control? I don't over eat and I have plenty of time to sleep at night. What's going on? The answers lie within my body. I'm tired all the time so I don't exercise and some days I'm just trying to get through the day. That's no way to live! I want to enjoy this life I have been given. I want the energy to spend time with my family.
A couple times I have tried to lose weight and I go really strong for about a month and then my motivation dies. I refuse to be a yo-yo dieter! Now is my time! I know Beach Body works! I have seen the results many times over. I'm determined to do it and stick with it!
I Ordered My Box and Now it's HERE!
My Beach Body box came today and I'm actually kind of excited! First thing I had to do was keep my kids from running off with my colored containers! To quote my 5 year old, “Mom these are so cute! You can make our lunch in these!” Haha…my response, “No way! You guys get stuff all the time! These are for mom only!” Next thing I had to do was put my labels on my containers because the OCD in me demanded it! After the kids go to bed I'm going to look through the meal plans and see what it's all about. It's oddly like christmas!
Kudos to you! Beachbody DOES work! So much so I became a coach and I absolutely adored the programs. I’ve done the FIX and now I’m moving on to CIZE (love em some Shaun T!). I look forward to hearing about your fitness journey – I’ve no doubt you’ll have success. Please let me know if I can provide any support or insight.
Thank you for your comments and support!
