so im guessing a few visitors will be stopping by from Holly's blog today so i thought in case any of you were new, that i would take a moment to introduce myself. Hi. Im stephanie. Im the sporadic blogger that runs buttons&bows here. im always writing a post in my head but it rarely gets let out. im trying to get better at that. i almost always fall asleep before finishing it. ill thank my two toddlers for that. the blog is named after them - my son Ian (buttons) and my daughter Rylin (bows). I live in northern illinois, im a stay at home mom to my crazy two and i am also a beachbody coach - which means that i get to help people reach their health and fitness goals by offering them support, accountability, and the tools needed to help them lose weight, get fit, or tone up! i help them because someone (my coach) helped me reach my goals and i want to pass it on!
thats probably why you are here today, because of the challenge Holly posted about. i run beachbody challenge groups. they are online accountability groups that people join. i have a goal of how many people i would like to help this year, that is why i am running the promotion that was mentioned on holly's blog. if you think you are interested in joining a challenge group, please email me at email@example.com - i would love to chat with you more about your goals and how you can achieve them!
you probably saw this picture on holly's blog as well. that is me. the one on the left is last june, when i weighed over 150 lbs, was wearing size 9/10 jeans, and had a huge baby belly left from my 2 pregnancies in 2 years. i was frumpy, uncomfortable, and unhappy. i had no energy and no drive. i was stuck
that is me again on the right. i took this picture in march but i actually started looking like that back around november. i was down to size small or 5/6 jeans and 126 lbs. my huge baby belly was gone though there is still a little left for me to work on. but you can bet i wouldnt have a problem rocking a two piece bathing suit now! i lost around 25 lbs in just about 3-4 months time and it was the holiday season! and kept it off!
this picture was after a 5 day inferno i did using turbofire back in november. im currently on the 2nd month of insanity and its an ab burner! so thankfully my abs are looking better and better each day. some fitness people would say that i still have a long ways to go, and they would be right. there will always be something to work on. but for a mom of two, im pretty happy with my results. im not trying to look like a fitness model, i just want to be the healthiest and fittest me that i can be. if i have a little baby pooch left over, i am okay with that!
id love to share more with you about the beachbody line of products and how you can get the results you are looking for. please email me, id love to chat with you!
thanks for stopping by and i hope you stick around! you can find me on bloglovin, instagram, twitter, or facebook. or my facebook fitness page. please leave your blog in the comments so i can visit you back!
