If your life were a book and you were the author how would you want it to go? I thought about this question after a family member one night candidly said “you’re fat”. A close friend echoed the same sentiment and made fun of me by saying “Gosh, I wonder why I keep gaining weight, I run daily, but I drink like a fish”. With a new job and lots more stress on my plate, I had slowly gained 48 pounds over the 22 months and was feeling very discouraged. However, I decided to change my story. I realized I could get more out life if I had a strong foundation. This foundation would be comprised of an exercise regimen that would get me into the best physical shape of my life. I started out exercising with the intention of looking a certain way, but 75 days later I obtained something so much greater that what you can see just by looking at me.
I am a Regional Director at Chipotle Mexican Grill and I have a very demanding job and schedule. A component of my job is also very social. My teammates and I often have meetings and critical discussions over lengthy 5 course meals. I work at least 6 days a week and begin work at 7 am and end my day at 11 pm. Finding a workout routine that fit my lifestyle was extremely difficult until I found Shamp’s Boot Camp.
A friend of mine mentioned Shamp’s and told me how much more energy she had after each class. She highlighted how different every workout was from one day to the next. I decided to give it a try and called Brien to schedule the free consultation that came with my agreement. I mentioned how I worked for Chipotle, my schedule and my inability to cook daily because of how much I’m out in the field. Brien suggested I do a Chipotle diet for the next 75 days.
Working with Brien, he not only offered flexible classes that were available throughout the Bay Area, but he also helped establish meals that I could eat while working at Chipotle. Initially I was tempted by alcohol and different rich foods that were constantly available at our team meetings and dinners. However, I stuck to Brien’s plan and eliminated all processed foods, sugars, gluten, grains and alcohols. I immediately started to feel rested, not bloated and felt stronger. This feeling, along with Brien’s constant encouraging words pushed me to be my best.
For breakfast, I had a smoothie made of ingredients that Brien suggest in his welcome packet. For lunch and dinner, I ate a Chipotle salad (no vinaigrette), fajitas, a choice of meat, salsa and guacamole. For snacks I had Chipotle homemade guacamole with sliced bell peppers.
75 days after starting the challenge and only eating a Chipotle diet twice a day, I am now 35.8 lbs lighter and reduced my body fat by 6.9%. I started the challenge at 204.8 lbs and 30% body fat. I am now at 169 lbs and 23.1% body fat. But most importantly I feel amazing! I have more energy, sleep better and this has allowed me to appreciate and love each day. With Shamp’s and Brien’s help I changed my path and story. Will it help you?Try out our Fit Body Boot Camp Afterburn Workout for 21 days. You'll see why we're the best in the Bay Area!
