Nanea is a relentless role model who says that it’s easy to lose track of tasks like what you’re eating, staying active enough, especially when life events get in the way. That’s how she felt over 3 years ago, when she was going through a divorce and taking care of her newborn baby and two-year old son. Wearing a size 14, Nanea didn’t feel like herself and needed a positive outlet.
My friend, Joette, told me about this 24-Day Challenge. I was always slim growing up–she had never seen me this way, with a broken spirit and wearing a size 14.
Nanea was addicted to coffee, and drank too much of it for years. After 24 days, she improved her diet, reduced her coffee intake, and dropped two sizes. Shortly after her initial success, she continued working out but lost some momentum with her diet.
She began another 24-Day Challenge a couple of years later, knowing she needed more than just a workout regimen. She kicked her coffee habit and replaced it with Spark. She dropped another two sizes by continuously working out, eating three portioned meals and three small snacks a day. She also cut out fried food and dairy.
She also increased the intensity of her workouts by exercising five days a week, competing in multiple Spartan races and 5ks and doing yoga on the weekends. She continues to build lean muscle and has maintained a size six for over a year and a half with the help of Catalyst, Muscle Strength, and Post-Workout Recovery.
