Over the past 3 months I have been using a meal plan developed by Erika from 413 fitness and have seen some amazing results. This journey has made me stronger mentally and physically and I am very proud of myself. I wanted to share my personal experience and possibly encourage you to make some healthy changes in the new year (read to the end and you’ll see the special deal 😉 ).
For you, maybe it’s not as strict as an exact meal plan but perhaps adding a salad to every dinner, or only having 1 dessert. Or, perhaps you are ready to commit to a huge challenge like running a half marathon, or working out 4 times a week. It’s your body, it’s your goals.
I’ve always been able to motivate and encourage myself to eat right and workout so I’ve always chosen to do it on my own. While I overall was pleased with my body and felt good, I began wanting to reach more difficult goals and push myself a bit further. I wondered – what can my body really do?! I had reached a plateau and couldn’t seem to push past it, leaving me annoyed and irritated. I decided it might be time to look into gaining more personalized support.
While I begrudgingly determined I couldn’t do it on my own, I knew exactly where to go. My friend Erika had recently started 413 fitness, where she creates personal nutrition and fitness plans. (You might remember her from this post on 6 quick toning moves.) With a wedding right around the corner, I decided this was the perfect time to get a coach.
