Have you ever just been stuck? If you’re at all like me, you’ve tied some, most, or all of the following:
- Every Celebrity Trainers workout routine
- HCG drops and or the 500 calorie diet
- The only Cabbage and Ground Beef diet, or any other crazy Fad diet
- Low Carb or No Carb diets
- Clean Eating only, no exceptions which leaves most people miserable and more likely to binge
- Juice Cleanses
- Detox Drinks
- Magic Pills like “Carb Blockers”
- Magic Products like wraps that help you lose fat
- Fascia Blasters & Cellulite Cupping
And you know as well as I do that this list could go on and on.
Im told Im the typical skinny fat, kind of girl. I pack fat on just as fast as I can take work/eat it off. Blessing and a curse, really. Ive dealt with multiple eating problems; binge eating, binge and purging, emotional eating, never wanting to miss out on a good bite, and so on.
Ive always been athletic. I love the gym and I love to run 5ks when my knees will allow it, play on a co-ed volleyball team with Jayson, hit the gym (at home), and more.
Ive never been consistent. I workout for 2 weeks and I lose interest. I see results after a week of dieting, and I quit. I see no results after a week, and I quit. Sound familiar?
In the beginning of 2016, I came across an ad of Facebook:
“Finally, in 20 Minutes A Day, You Can Lose Weight & Have The Fit & Toned Body You’ve Dreamed Of”
You get EVERYTHING you need to get fit & lose weight including:
Free Training, Coaching & Support
Free Meal Plans That Are DELICIOUS
Free Workouts That Are Challenging and EFFECTIVE and Burn Fat
Free Access To Get Your Questions Answered
And a LOT MORE!
I sighed, rolled my eyes, and muttered, “whatever,” and clicked to check it out. I just assumed it was going to be a ridiculous cookie cutter, unhealthy, plan that most people post to bait poor, uneducated, unfit women. To my surprise, what I saw intrigued me. It said FREE. I started to sign up waiting to see what fees I was going to have to pay. None. $0 paid out. I got emails with information in regards to meal plans, workouts, and links to a motivating community full of ladies just like me. )
Sure, the meal plans say to use their Protein Powder, but you dont have to. I didnt for my first challenge. I already had some junky protein from WalMart stashed away in the cabinet. I used that instead. I had amazing results with my first 15 Day FREE challenge. I still wonder how much more amazing my results wouldve been had I used their protein instead of what I used, considering the one I did use had double the calories (fats and carbs were twice as much). Aside from buying my groceries, this plan was legit, FREE. If you want more details and to see my results from the FREE 15 Day Fit Body Challenge by Trainer Lindsey, click HERE
I did a couple rounds and found myself bored with the repeated meals and workouts. I looked back through their website and found even more challenges, and yes, they were FREE. I mixed it up between Kaytlins MMA challenge, Kristis Running challenge, Nicoles Mommy Trainer challenge & Karinas Fit Model challenge. I did one round of each, then, mixed and matched to create my own meals and workouts. This kept it from getting stale, and it was so easy to do! Did I mention that all the free challenges can be done at home?? As a stay at home mom, this was amazing! I manage 3 businesses from home. My 2 year old stays home with me all day, and my 8 year old is home all day with us when school is out. Having options to use at home is a Godsend 🙂
Money tends to be an issue for me. For most people, I think. Thats one of the biggest things I love about this company. These challenges are for real, free. Not to mention the multiple options! And the sales, oh my goodness. They are ALWAYS having sales! I think theyve pumped out 5 or 6 different promo codes over the last month, getting up to 15% off their products. Some discounts worked on top of their sale prices too! You just have to be patient and wait for the sales on the product you love to come around. I always stock up with the protein is 40% off and the pre-workout and BCAAs are on sale. To see all their specials, you can go here –> http://shrsl.com/je5k
I have placed 17 orders in the last year and a half. My shipments have always arrived in the time frame they gave me, and, my boxes have come in great condition. Ive had to contact customer services a few times. I like to use their online chat feature because I absolutely hate speaking to anyone on the phone. Theyve been easy to chat with, and all my issues (needing to return due to wrong size or not being able to attend the LIVE event) have been taken care of in a timely manor.
The facebook communities are full of support and motivation from other women like us! AND the trainers are active in the posts. Its such a great tool to have access to! I feel like I have a pretty strong base when it comes to fitness and healthy, but every once in a while, I find my self searching the feed to see if I can find the answer to my question.
About 8 months ago, I was contacted by IdealFit, and was brought on as an Affiliate at first, and later, and Ambassador. I NEVER put my name on something I dont believe in. I truly love the products. Ill include my must haves below 🙂 I also love the many options for the FREE challenges and even the 6 week challenges. I did the 6 week FBC already and am in the middle of Sculpt. Its so nice having access to an online community full of encouragement, and knowledge from the trainers. I have had many friends join me in doing the 15 day and 6 week challenge. We are all different heights and weights, with very different backgrounds, and day to day lifestyles, and we each have had our own share of success with this company.
So, yes, I think if you dont know where to start, stuck in a plateau, want to learn more about macros, or just need a change, I truly believe you should give IdealFit and its challenges a try! And if you love them as much as I do, then youll want to try their products. I know you will love it too!

Mint Chocolate is my ABSOLUTE favorite! Chocolate Brownie and Chocolate Coconut are great for shakes, but also for baking things like energy bites or pancakes. French vanilla is great for shakes too, but even better for protein French Toast!
