Here’s a little more info about the performance supplements…

Beachbody Performance is the best because it’s…

  • Developed by Harvard-trained scientists using cutting-edge sports science and nutrition research.
  • Formulated with ingredients at clinically effective levels scientifically shown to make a difference in energy, focus, stamina, strength, and recovery.
  • No gimmicky ingredients without proof that they work. Beachbody Performance is backed by evidence-based ingredients shown to help improve performance and recovery.
  • No artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.

I use RECOVER post-workout to take advantage of the post-workout window to help with muscle growth & recovery, ease soreness and build strength. It’s full of 20 grams of fast-, intermediate-, and slow-release proteins, and an ideal ration of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) to help promote muscle growth and repair.

I use RECHARGE to help with sleep, recovery, and soreness. It has 20 grams of slow-release casein protein, plus it tastes like vanilla ice cream 😉

The History of my Closet

Closet

A couple days ago I was cleaning out my closet. I came across the teeniest, tiniest pair of extra small shorts in the back of my closet. Five years ago these shorts were the perfect fit. Today I could probably get the entire pair over one thigh and no, I refused to try it. For a minute my heart dropped. I felt a rush of emotions.

Disappointed.

Sad.

Ugly.

Angry.

Then a little twinge of pride came over me.

Yes I said pride. I am so much healthier than I was when I would squeeze into those tiny shorts. I was hungry on a 24/7 basis, cranky, and just about the most boring person ever. Even back when I was tiny, I was self-conscious. I hated my body. I would never wear a bikini. I didn’t like me.

My struggle with nutrition and weight loss is a bit different than most. I lost all the weight I ever wanted and then some and I was miserable. I gained it all back and was miserable.

What I wasn’t getting was my weight wasn’t the problem. No diet or smallest size possible was going to make me learn to like myself. Tweet it! I am a whole lot happier with only a thigh cramming into teeny tiny shorts than I ever was when they were loose on my hips.

Happiness doesn’t always come in a size extra small. I have the shorts to prove it.
