Q: What are some of your go-to favorite meals?
A: I felt so good eating the foods on the meal plan. I loved the oven roasted chicken sausage and veggies. It was a big portion, tasted great, and it was similar to dinners I was used to making.
I also loved the post-workout snacks. It was a treat to look forward to! I had a week-long family reunion right in the middle of the program, so I brought my weights with me, got my workouts in, and tried to adjust the meals as best I could to be macro friendly. Ultimately, it came down to a commitment and desire to change. I knew I could do it for 6 weeks.
Q: What are some supplements that have helped?
A: I use the IdealRaw Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein and most often mixed it with almond milk. The taste took a little getting used to, but I’ve grown to really love it!
Q: What tips do you have for others starting out?
A: My tip for others starting would be to utilize the meal plan template Bree offers as much as possible!!
Q: What are some of your biggest victories?
A: A huge victory for me was working out 6 out of 7 days for 6 weeks straight! I don’t know if I’ve ever done that in my life, and I learned that I don’t have to kill myself in the workout.
It was better to listen to my body and modify when I needed, so I didn’t dread doing the workout. They were short but very effective!
Q: How has this changed your life?
A: This has changed so much in my life. It has changed how I view healthy eating. I feel more knowledgeable about how to adjust meals to eat what I want and still stay on track.
It has changed how my body looks and I feel strong again!! I’m currently doing the program my second time through and adding reps or upping weights. It feels amazing and I’m so glad I’m making myself a priority.
Q: How much weight/inches have you lost?
I stayed committed to working out every day and being good about the meal plan. I started seeing results after week 1, so that really encouraging! There’s actually only a 4-pound difference between my start and finish pictures, but the toning and inches were a huge difference!
