My story of being a new mom of five has had its up and downs. The one thing that has stayed consistent is my challenge group. When I joined a challenge group 3 months post partum, I got an infusion of positive energy and self discipline that has transformed me inside and out. When another coach, who also began her journey post partum, was speaking to me about a group of her friends who wanted to join us in a group but were all either brand new moms or in the final stages of pregnancy, I knew what we had to do. We had to create for them specifically, a challenge group. A place where every post spoke to the challenges we had experienced together. I have done 90% of my workouts this past year with a baby next to me, on the floor, or climbing on me. I will have my 16 month old home with me for another year, so I will have even greater challenges with getting in my #metime, my daily workout and shakeology. I will not give up, I will keep investing in me, to be able to give more to everyone else around me. I want to do that with other new moms who want the same thing.
So what will this group be like?
We check in every day in the group with a selfie after our workout.
Why? Seeing yourself everyday is so important. You worked out! You own that truth and you will see changes in your face, from the confidence in your smile to the sparkle in your eyes and the definition in your cheekbones. It also helps all of us to connect to you and support you better. The key to accountability.
We eat all of our portions every day.
Why? we trust our bodies and the process, the goal is not to eat less, its to eat well and fuel yourself for the adventures of motherhood and your new healthy, strong lifestyle.
You can drink Shakeology or buy on your own and take a prenatal multivitamin, omega 3 supplement and pro-biotics/ pre-biotics.
Why? Because eating food and a balanced diet is important, but to absorb all of those nutrients we need, especially when breastfeeding, Gut Health is paramount (where those nutrients are absorbed) and we need to replenish our resources all the way to cellular level after giving birth.
Every person in this group has a coach, including the Coaches.
Why? We all need someone to check up and check in. Even me. Life can wash you out with many waves and a coach is there to help you, when you lack the ability to swim through the hard times and to celebrate every success and every milestone with you. The coach knows how hard you worked for it.
The group is your Fr-amily (freinds/ family) You comment and lift them up with your good days and your off days.
Why? When you are apart of the group you subconsciously hold yourself to the standards of the group. You define yourself as someone who does workout everyday, someone who does work on eating well and it is innumerably easier to follow through on the habits you wish to create. The enthusiasm of the group sweeps you along. That goes for struggles as well. When you share your struggle, you allow others to reach out and help you, that builds both of you simultaneously. They get to recognize that its also difficult for every person, and they don't need to hide their foibles. They will also be accepted and not judged for struggling as much as they succeed. Its called failing forward. We believe in progress never perfection.
