Hi! My name is Anna and i am a BeachBody coach. I have created this page both to document my own journey but also to have a space to house my recipes and tips and images on the web. Please feel free to contact me if you ever want any help with anything or have any questions.
Now with that out of the way, i likely should go into a bit more detail. I am 36 years old, divorced, and living in Massachusetts. I am a gamer, a geek, a software person and i do a lot of historical recreation, with the SCA. What that amounts to is not a lot of moving and a lot of sitting. This has never bothered me too much but in 2012 i got cancer. Cancer makes you scared, terrified. And it puts you into a state of war with your own body. I won this war. I am healthy, in remission, though it will be a few years until i can say i am cured. But part of my treatment involved Prednisone, and well that added 40 pounds.
No more i said. No more. I am in control, body not you. So i searched for ways to take the weight off and build up strength. See, my cancer, it was inside my right humorous, upper arm bone. So my bone is hollow, and the muscle is burned by radiation permanently. Building strength back up was imperative, and not very easy either.
My coworker Audra introduced me to 21 Day Fix, Beachbody and well, it was all uphill from there lol. I got the program knowing about the money back guarantee and i fell in love. I stuck to the workouts. I stuck to the food program. And i saw results.
So far, i have lost 22lbs, and over 13 inches from my waistline. And i am not done yet. You know what else though? I can do pushups. before, i could not support my own body with my arm. And that right there, that is why this site is named what it is. It is about taking control back. Of my like, my health and my fitness.
