My Beachbody Adventure

This summer has been quite a busy one.  Along with keeping busy and having lots of fun with my two little ones, I decided to become a Beachbody coach.  Why?  I was itching to try something new, meet new people, and share something I’m passionate about.

First, what is Beachbody?  Beachbody is a company that promotes fitness, health, and wellness through various programs, supplements, and motivational/support tools.

When I decided that I needed to lose weight and get healthy, I started with the program T-25.  It wasn’t easy at first, but slowly I no longer needed to modify the moves.  Combined with clean eating, the weight was falling off.  I did a few rounds of T-25 and then started mixing it up with other cardio and strength training workouts.  Eight months later, I was down 42 pounds and I have maintained that for a year now.  It takes a lot of dedication, planning, and preparation, but I love it!  (I wrote a little bit about my weight loss journey when I first started, which you can find here and here).

A few months ago, I started using 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme.  I also began drinking Shakeology.  These workout programs have helped me maintain my weight loss and tone.  I still continue with a clean eating lifestyle and use the 21 Day Fix eating plan to help me stay in check.

Because of the positive results I got and continue to get with Beachbody, I decided to become a coach.  I want to share what Beachbody has helped give me, which is a healthy lifestyle and confidence.  I love the workout programs, so why not help others get involved if they are looking to incorporate exercise into their daily routine?  I love to cook and try new recipes.  So why not share what I make to help people eat healthy?

I know this doesn’t make sense because this blog is all about baking and desserts that aren’t necessarily good for you.  Well baking is still a passion of mine and it is something else I enjoy sharing.  I will continue to do it and always keep in mind that moderation is key and I love giving baked goods away anyway :).  I’m not sure if I will continue writing about Beachbody on I Need to Bake or create a second blog.  I’m trying to figure out the best way to do that.  But in the meantime, I will be adding various posts about health, nutrition, and Beachbody information.
