A few months ago I decided to take the plunge and do a round of Body Beast. Let me give you a little background info so you get a better picture of why this is so huge. I pack on muscle very easily and the scale and I are not the best of friends.
Going in I knew I would put on muscle and as a result the number on the scale would most likely increase. I was well aware I would freak out as a result. I could have avoided this by staying far far away from the scale but, alas, it is an obsession. Healthy? No! But truth be told I am in a much better place mentally than I was when I started this whole Beachbody journey.
So I am more than halfway into the program, heading into my last phase, with only four weeks left. How am I fairing? Well, the scale has gone up a few pounds. Did I freak out? Heck ya! I have put on a bunch of new muscle and I am seeing my body take on a totally different shape. I’m enjoying lifting again. It takes me back to my body building days.
But to my amazement I’m trusting the process and even though that scale still freaks me out I’m ok with it. Because despite that I seem to be smaller in certain areas and tighter, I’m seeing some awesome new definition and I know I needed to do this in order to get the results I’ve been looking for. When I started Chalean Extreme a couple years ago I never completed the program as written because the second the scale went up or my legs got a little bigger I would freak out. So this, to me, is a huge step in the right direction in regards to my journey towards healing from something that has burdened me for so long. I thank Beachbody every day because it has taken me on this wonderful journey toward self love!
So what’s next for me? A Brazil Butt Lift/Insanity hybrid! I’m looking forward to shredding this new muscle up!
Be well my friends!
