✨ FCB spotlight ✨
Monica has been with the fit club for a few months now and has had a amazing transformation inside and out, here’s what she had to say…
I turn 40 this year and I have spent a good chunk of these months thinking about what type of second half of my life I want to have. I used to run before I had kids, but now I am aware I need strength, not only to age as gracefully and zen as possible but also to keep up with my two little boys, who are very energetic.
So far I have lost some of the extra weight I had at the beginning and become stronger little by little. But my biggest transformation has been in the mindset and knowledge area. I have unlearned so many health myths that I grew up with. From “fats should be avoided” to “coaches are only for competitive athletes” and everything in between.
Going through the Macros to Muscles course empowered me to learn about a sustainable healthy lifestyle that now I can pass on to my children and husband too. One reads and hears so much about nutrition out there, that the academic in me really appreciated the scientific basis that everything Hannah teaches is based on. It gives me the confidence to trust the process.
From my running days, I remember a documentary about why East Africans tend to win the long-distance races in the olympics: because they train together. I never thought possible, even necessary, to have a community for working out on strength, but as I became more active in our lovely FB group, I felt a sense of belonging with these women that I don’t even know in person but that have so much in common with me.
So, connecting the dots, following nutrition plans and workouts that I trust, has helped me to embrace them as part of my routine now. Knowing the whys behind them helps me to stay focused and motivated. Having a community to share the journey with, makes me feel that I am not alone and that as I age, I will be able to catch up with my kids and be an active part of their very active lives because Hannah’s program has provided me with all the tools I need to start the second part of my life in the best shape I have ever been. Physically and mentally.
