If you are thinking about doing the challenge, I say do it
Before the Challenge I was depressed about it. I'm sure it showed in my self esteem. I wanted to hide under baggy clothes, I was embarrassed around all my skinny friends, and really lost interest in love making with my husband (hated being seen naked). Just after 6 days of the challenge, had more energy, I wanted to be active, I felt better in my clothes and I slept better at night. I actually craved exercise. If you are thinking about doing the challenge, I say do it. Nichole is positive and motivating. She offers variety in workouts and challenges. She keeps you accountable. She gives more than just exercise tips. It's good for the mind too!
After completing the challenge I have more endurance, have more energy at the end of the day and I feel better about myself and my body.
I had fallen off the wagon and couldn't figure out how to get back on. I was incredibly frustrated and I felt overwhelmed about where to even start. After completing the challenge, I have more endurance. I have more energy at the end of the day and I feel better about myself and my body. I just really appreciate all that Nichole put into this program. I was shocked with how much I got. The emails, workouts, encouragement, coaching calls and Facebook group, it all was fantastic.
I was so impressed at the dedication and commitment that Nichole had towards us.
For years, I have always tried to change my lifestyle and my self-talk and my mindset, and I've never really been able to. I would miss one day, or have one slip up, and just totally fall off the wagon. I was definitely stuck in all-or-nothing attitude. My health wasn't terrible, but it certainly wasn't good. Since the challenge I noticed having more energy, and I actually enjoyed the challenges. They were fun, and I was excited to be active. I could notice my body changing and feeling stronger, and that was such a great feeling! If someone was thinking of joining - absolutely do it! Working with Nichole was great. It was the first time I had taken the time to address my mental state and how that related to my physical state. It made all the difference in the world. The emails, the texts, the Facebook group, the YouTube videos....I was so impressed at the dedication and commitment that Nichole had towards us, and we were just a free challenge group. It was Nichole's positivity and support that kept me knowing that I could succeed.
I now feel okay with moving my body each day without the pressure of pushing myself to exhaustion. I now listen to what my body needs that day without the guilt.
The 21 day program helped me to pace myself with exercise instead of having to work out intensely one day, wait a period of time to recover (at least a day or two) before exercising again...this was exhausting and physically draining. I now feel okay with just moving my body each day without the pressure of pushing myself to exhaustion. I now listen to what my body needs that day without the guilt. I'm also getting stronger at silencing my inner critic and actively thinking more positively instead of passively allowing the negative thoughts to take over. You have nothing to lose by working with Nichole except for your guilt, self-condemnation, and of course..the extra pounds!
I felt more comfortable in my clothes again and I was just happy.
Before the challenge, I was angry I let myself be so blind and not see I was putting on the weight. I didn't feel pretty anymore and I didn't want to go out because I then had to find something to wear. Then, as the program went on, I was a lot more positive than I had been in recent months, I felt more comfortable in my clothes again and I was just happy. I would tell anyone on the fence to do it! Nichole tackles weight loss from a different angle; it's an angle that will change the way you think and help you feel better and keep off the weight in the long run.
