I started this journey about 3 months ago and I am so happy I did. I’m a stay at home mom with 2 kids under 4! I had always been one who likes to workout, but never with a personal trainer. I work with Ivan 2 days a week and the other days I go to Planet Fitness, where I follow a workout plan that is spelled out for me.
This combo has worked out very nicely for me. I quickly got into a great routine and now I thrive on it! The only part of this journey that really scared me was the nutrition. When I first signed up, I kept telling myself I don’t know how I will do this or I can’t do this.
I was mainly concerned with having no knowledge or very little knowledge of counting macros. Going into something knowing very little is scary. I also have 2 little kids that are your typical toddlers that enjoy sweets and eating food that is not all nutritious. I voiced my concern during our annotation call with coach MC.
She explained a lot over the phone, but honesty I was still very scared. I started off slowly with only tracking my protein (realizing I was nowhere near the amount of protein I needed in a day). Then randomly, when I had some time, I would track some carbs and fat. After about a week of just tracking a few things, I dove in head first and BAM I felt like I could do this! coach MC has been nothing but amazing, answering all my questions, giving me meal ideas, snack ideas. She looks at my numbers daily and will let me know what I could have eaten to hit all my numbers! I have seen amazing results in such a short period of time, that I would say I’m pretty addicted! When you see results you want to work that much harder and this is exactly what is happening to me. I wasn’t overweight when I started but I wanted to tone up. I have lost 11 pounds since I started. I have dropped at least 1 pants size and I have built a lot of muscle.
I can see my abs again and will feel a lot more comfortable wearing shorter shorts this summer! Coach Ivan and MC are such an amazing team and if you truly are ready for a change and willing to put in the work, I don’t doubt you could see these results too.
