“’I don’t have any will power’, ‘I love tasty food too much’, ‘I don’t have the time’, ‘the last 5-10 pounds are the hardest to loose’, ‘I’ll never get the body I want now that I’ve had a baby’, these were always the “excuses” I used. I have been a faithful gym girl for years and though I felt better I could never get the body I always wanted. Of course I knew eating whatever I wanted whenever I wanted was holding me back yet I still wasn’t willing to change that.
Then I met the super fit and beautiful Miss Erika Sprung. We hit it off immediately and started working out together for a few weeks. I could see some changes pretty quickly following her lead, but still hadn’t changed my eating habits. I then got pregnant and wasn’t working out as hard and definetely wasn’t watching what I was eating. I took 6 weeks off at the gym after I had my baby due to a c-section so was eager to get back at it.
I was very hesitant and doubtful when I heard about the 12 week challenge, yet the temptation of possibly achieving my goals pulled me in and I knew this was the kick in the butt I needed to get my diet under control. Next thing I knew I told Erika to count me in cuz I was doing this! My first week was rough. I knew nothing about eating healthy or how much of what to eat. With the program Erika told me how much of what to eat without restricting me from never eating some of the stuff I love. Once I kickstarted my willpower and got my body off the junk food, each week just got easier and easier. Though tracking and planning does take time, it started to become fun! Erika was always available to answer any of my concerns and to give that little motivating push when I needed it. I’ve learned that eating healthy can still be delicious and satisfying, and I’ve never felt more powerful than saying NO to junk food when it’s right in front of my face and everyone else is pigging out! The workouts were challenging yet fun and felt taylored to my body. I could see results almost immediately, I am still in shock of my transformation!! I have the abs that I never thought possible, especially after having a baby. It’s pretty amazing what you can accomplish when you dedicate yourself to something important to you and surround yourself with the right people. I can’t wait to continue my new lifestyle, and knowing Trench fitness will be there to catch me if I fall just makes it that much easier. This was the most difficult and challenging thing I have done and has also been the most rewarding, Thank you Erika!”
