"My before and after story started a little less than a year ago. The top pictures are beautiful because they show a body that recently gave birth to a second, healthy baby boy and was growing and sustaining him every day. I'm really proud of that body. I took the bottom pictures yesterday before I started my second round of FB30 (workouts that are 30 minutes or less) and even I was overwhelmed with what my body has been capable of over the last year.
At one point, I escaped to the gym with my husband while our kids were with their grandparents, but I still couldn't break away from my FB workout. I had an elderly man approach me and ask what kind of workout I was doing - I told him about FB. He then said he thought I could climb a mountain. After two babies, I knew I already climbed a figurative one, but I thought, "yeah, I think I could!" and I have Fitness Blender to thank for that.
Your workouts (and the two of you) are entertaining, fun and challenging with so many options as you move forward in your fitness goals. I have gained so much strength inside and out as FB has come alongside of me and I'm so excited about the upcoming year. Thank you, Kelli and Daniel!

I love her mindset. You wont get anywhere "hating" or shaming your own body, no matter what it might look like. You have to embrace yourself the way you are and care about yourself enough to make healthy choices, and it's a lot easier to do that when you're speaking kindly to yourself - I know it's easier said than done, but it's true. So grateful to her that she was brave enough to share her story & insight with us!
