After the birth of Brynna in October 2010 I was depressed and frustrated with the way I looked. My healthy lifestyle was on the back burner as I was completely overwhelmed. I saw a picture of myself from New Years 2011 and cried! I did not look like me. I had two choices in front of me; to give up and let the weight and depression take over, or to take a proactive stance of my body, my health and my life. January 1, 2012, I decided to join an online Challenge group through Facebook & wow did it kick my butt! I could barely do the workout but I was determined to try and finish the program. I also wanted to give it my all. I started drinking Shakeology and my results were incredible. Also, my energy level was through the roof because I was finally getting the nutrition my body needed through Shakeology.
Today I feel incredible! At age 40 I am in the best shape of my life. I am strong, confident and healthy. Most importantly I am comfortable in my own skin. I am an example for my kids and my prayer for them is that they grow up with a healthy body image and realize how important it is to fuel your body with proper nutrition and that you exercise to be healthy.
I've also become a Beachbody Coach- and I love my job! I get to help other moms get fit too!
After the birth of baby number 2 at age 29 I decided something had to change for the long term. I did not want my kids, especially my daughter, to have an unhealthy body image. I had 50 pounds to lose and I was going to figure out the right and healthy way to do it. As tempting as it was, I said no quick fixes because I wanted lasting results.
I pulled out P90x (after all it had been sitting in our closet unopened for a year!). After doing one round of the entire program, I had an amazing transformation and loved the results I got. I felt strong and went on to do Turbo Jam and Chalean Extreme.
I was in such great shape that I became pregnant with baby number 3 at age 32! Due to some health circumstances during my pregnancy, I wasn't able to work out at all, under doctors orders. This resulted in gaining 60 pounds with my last pregnacy.
Hi! I'm Tawnya and I'm really glad you're here.
I am married to an amazing man named Scott and I am a mom to 3 beautiful kids. I have an 14 year old son named Skyler, a 10 year old daughter named Allie and 8 year old daughter named Brynna.
I have struggled with my weight and nutrition for as long as I can remember. I have tried so many quick fixes out there but they never provided me with lasting healthy results. Even when I was skinny I was what you call "skinny fat."
I had my son when I was 25 and I lost the 55 pounds I had gained with him in just 3 months. But I achieved this through a very strict diet, with a weight loss company. I was exhausted working full-time, taking care of a baby and not taking in enough food.
