MIND. BODY. Challenge Finale | Before and After

My MIND. BODY. Fitness 4 Week Challenge has come to an end and I am super satisfied with the results! In this post I will show my before and afters, include the entire plan so that you can try it our for yourself, and introduce you to the dietician responsible for my  body trim!

The entire month of January I was hard at work getting training from Gilbert Johnson twice a week, going to Bikram Yoga 2 to 3 times per week and following Amanda’s fitness plan! I am proud to say, even though I had a few hiccups and had to jump back on the horse, I completed the first month of my 2019 New Years Resolution! Want to see my results for January?

Looking at these results continue to motivate me to eat healthier and workout. With this jump start to a beach ready body, I have now trained my body to crave fitness and I will further my fitness journey with new and innovative techniques and products each month throughout the year. If you are ready to jump start your journey, here is my 4 week fitness challenge:

Meet the Dietician Behind a More Toned Body

Amanda is a 42 y/o mother of an 18 y/o son who is amazing! She has been a nurse for over 13 years and has worked at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital for over 11 years. Her expertise in body image achievement and tasty recipes that help you get there have taught me how to choose better, actually eat breakfast, and what to substitute for day snacking.

Six years ago she found her love for living a healthy lifestyle, including working out and eating healthy. She saw how positively it affected her, not only physically but also emotionally and mentally. She loved working out so much that the habit was developed, and helping others find their love for health became a passion. She earned her nutrition certification through ISSA and has since obtained her personal training and group fitness certification as well. Seeing women empower and encourage each other in such powerful ways was exactly what she wanted to do.

“There is more to working out then the aesthetic benefits. It is a change that happens from the inside out. I believe we are created to take care of bodies, minds, and spirits because they are all a part of who we are as human beings. I believe that making small changes daily and not getting overwhelmed with too many changes at the same time is what works best. Everyone needs a nutrition and workout plan that fits their lifestyle. Fad diets never work, so getting back to the basics is always the best way to get the results you are looking to achieve. Set short and long term goals. Surround yourself with positive people who will push you, encourage you, support you and hold you accountable. We all struggle with some type of insecurity, but it’s important to remember that we each have unique gifts and talents to offer the world so let yours shine. Find purpose in what you do each and every day, and you will find true joy and contentment. Taking care of yourself is not selfish but makes you a better person for everyone in your life!” -Amanda McLeod
