Welcome to Day 8 of Fit, Fyne and Fabulous’ 12 days of FITmas!!
Let us introduce you to the gorgeous Garnett McNeil! It’s her 40th birthday yall!! Let’s celebrate this diva, who is the mother of a beautiful pre-teen daughter, the wife of a hardworking IT professional, while she; herself, is a successful Accountant. When she is not putting her left brain to work; crunching numbers for the “Firm”, G is using the creative juices of her right brain to make brides beautiful with her gift of makeup artistry!! Yes, our girl is VERSATILE, to say the least!
Well, let’s learn a bit more about G’s fitness journey, shall we?
Nicole is a fellow coach and I saw what she was doing with her group and asked if I could shadow her because she is so AWESOME!!!
Lack of consistency and motivation. Plus my eating was not the best.
How did Fit, Fyne, and Fabulous help you get closer to reaching your fitness goals?
It made me more accountable because Nicole threw me right into leading challenge groups. And you have to lead by example. Plus all of the ladies in the group bring so much excitement and motivation.
See the stuff I’m drinking on the left ? in the picture above? I’ve been drinking this fountain of youth once (sometimes twice a day) for almost 2 years now. And in that two years it has helped me reverse time figuratively and literally. Because of Shakeology:
✔I don’t need to take a daily vitamin because I get what I need when I’m sippin
✔My digestive system has improved dramatically. No more days in between going.
✔I have to cut my nails once a week because they grow rapidly
✔My hair has grown like crazy (see the massive puff on top of my head)
✔My skin glows and has evened out which means less makeup for dark circle and blemishes. (I have on no makeup in these pictures and no filter)
✔I have the energy to take on my hectic days
✔I got mistaken for my daughter yesterday & told that I don’t look my age on a regular basis
I could go on and on. I wouldn’t be as successful on my fit journey without them. I’m so happy my coach convinced me to give them a try because my initial reaction was “Nah I don’t do shakes.” Well now I’m a Shakeology lover for life. #shakeologyworks #imveryregularnow #lifechangingstuffhere#myfountainofyouth
What has been your most rewarding NSV or “Non-Scale Victory” since joining FFF?
I have been able to fit into sizes I haven’t seen for a very long time. Some even smaller than I was on my wedding day. Plus I am finally back into the 160s club.
Looking at everyone posting their sparkle pictures motivates me on days where I don’t want to push play. Also the encouraging words from the other coaches every morning is the highlight of my day. Everything comes from the heart.
You can’t beat spending up front money on a program and shakes versus paying a monthly fee to a gym that you may not even use. And personal trainers are expensive. I used to have one. But my new personal trainers are my fellow coaches and of course our celebrity trainers. You get more bang for your buck getting FREE virtual training and working out at home.
What have you learned about yourself during your fitness journey thus far?
I have learned that I was limiting myself. I am so much stronger than I thought mentally and physically. And truth be told the ladies in this group have helped me find my way spiritually.
This process is not a sprint, but a marathon. Make sure your short term expectations are in check. If they aren’t you could be setting yourself up for failure. Also your diet is very important. You can workout until you are blue in the face, but if what you are eating isn’t good for you, it will all be for nothing.
