Today we feature Jenna B. Jenna's journey began with Ashley back in May, about 5 months ago.
Jenna decided that she wanted to lose a little weight and work through some stress management as well. Here is Ashley's recap of Jenna's progress:
When I first met with Jenna, I wasn't really sure if I would ever see her again. Jenna seemed to be a very driven, hardworking lady, and I kind of assumed that with as hard working she was, that she would be way too busy to take on such a huge lifestyle change. To my surprise, she signed up for a 3-month plan and she never missed an appointment. She was dedicated and committed from day 1. Every appointment that we had she seemed more and more at ease with clean eating. It was a struggle in the beginning, but after a few weeks, she picked it right up, and has not turned back.
Within a few months, Jenna was down 20 pounds, not by starving herself, or buying a weight loss product, but just by changing the quality of the foods she was eating.
After 3 months of working together, exclusively on nutrition, Jenna began adding Yoga in twice a week to her new lifestyle routine to help with stress management, relaxation, and exercise. Then after a month of doing yoga, she began strength training with Gabby. Since she has started doing yoga and strength training, she has dropped another 5 pounds, and lost just over 4 inches. In addition, she has improved her cardiorespiratory fitness by 30% truly demonstrating a full lifestyle change!
To this day, Jenna is one of the most consistent clients I have ever worked with. I still review her food logs weekly, and every week she continues to blow me away with her dedication to her health and wellness goals.
I have loved being a part of Jenna's transformation, not just on the scale, but also in her personality. Jenna has a hard time relaxing, in every yoga class when we get to the end and drop in for our "resting pose" (or savasana/corpse pose), Jenna was always tapping her hands and looking around the room, patiently just waiting for this torture to be over. However, the last few classes that she has come to, I have caught her closing her eyes, and finding some calm and stillness.
Jenna is learning the perfect mix of how exercise, a little calm/rest and nutrition can transform your body and mind, and we at FITness Into A Lifestyle could not be more proud of her hard work. Keep it up Jenna! You are such an inspiration and we are so honored to get to work with you on your goals!
