Like just about everyone, I fully intended on making my New Years' resolution to live a healthier life. Generally, I'm a pretty active person, I love Pilates and Barre and love heading to the gym during the week with my kids for a "break" from momlife. However, my nutrition was really lacking and I fully intended to make it a priority for 2018. So when Kara reached out to me about joining her Transform Bootcamp that would take place in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas every little part of me wanted to say, yeahhhhh can you come back with that in January?!? Kara knows--I was soooooo hesitant! But I can now say with confidence that it was the BEST decision for the future of my health! And if I, sweet lover extraordinaire, can do it when temptation abounds during the holidays, anyone can do it!
You may remember Kara from her guest blog post here on Absolutely Emilia! Her approach to nutrition is so fresh and attainable, truly, anyone can do it! She brings you back to the basics and teaches you what you need to fuel your body. And, the best and most important part to me, is she doesn't make you feel bad if you've had a rough day!
Jumping into a nutrition makeover right in the middle of the holidays was definitely not easy. And I would absolutely be lying to you if I said I never had slip ups or ate a plate of pasta at a Christmas party--because I did! But I truly learned about balance. And what was most surprising, I learned that I just feel SO much better when I take good care of my body by choosing nutrition dense foods instead of the sugary crap I often crave.
I'm honestly so nervous to share this with you all because it is so personal to me, but I want to share some of my results with you! At the end of the 5 week bootcamp I had lost 5 pounds (which were still hanging on from my pregnancy with a certain little ginger you may know!)! I also lost exactly 2 inches in my waist ! Guys, that is HUGE for me! I honestly could not be happier!
So if you are interested in participating in Kara's Transform Bootcamp I'm going to leave her info here for you! Let her know I sent you! You won't regret it! This is all online, she is there throughout the program to support you, and it is all REAL food-no shakes, no secrets, no magic-just transforming the way you think about eating!
