Cora lost 50 pounds

Cora before and after

Transformation of the day: Cora lost 50 pounds And many inches. I was exercising, but I was not getting the results I wanted due to emotional eating and horrible eating habits. He joined a 60-day transformation program, put it all into it and his hard work was worth it.

Cora before and after

I was always that woman in the gym exercising, but whose eating habits were horrible. I was also dealing with other things in life. I am an emotional eater, and one thing that the gym cannot beat is a bad diet.

Take the HOT. Challenge, a 60-day transformation program that I found on Instagram. The founder of the challenge is Darrell Patterson of Atlanta GA. I started on January 7, 2019. After the second week, I was surprised by the changes my body was taking, so I stayed constant. I followed the meal plan and training videos provided. It's almost like a gym far from the gym. (You know the saying: "A home away from home"). Well, that's how I felt, and that was what I needed.

My weight loss journey started at 198 pounds. Today I am in front of you, up to 148 pounds. My height is 5 & # 39; 4 ″, my waist is 28 inches and my confidence level is 1000! the HOT. Challenge It is a program that will take you further.

I had to change my eating habits tremendously. Sweets, snacks and dairy are things that I had to sacrifice and give up. I'm not a big soda drinker and I love water, so the change was not difficult for me.

My meal plan focused on Carb Cycling. I had days high in carbohydrates and low in carbohydrates. For example, the # 1 meal on a low carb day could be …
• Whole-3 eggs (150 g)
• Quaker Oats-1/2 Cup, dry measure (20g) • Avocado oil (14g)
• Pineapple-1 cup (165 g)

The # 1 meal on a high carb day could be …
• Eggs-2 whole (100g)
• Quaker Oats-1/2 Cup, dry measure (20g) • Blueberries-1 Cup (148g)

My training days consisted of fasting cardio in the morning (HIIT home training using the Follow Along videos). My night workouts consisted of gymnastics workouts that Darrell organized for us to follow. He showed us the right way, how many repetitions and how many sets to do.

After 60 days, I stayed consistent, but reduced my workouts to just one workout per day. I made sure to keep my Cardio fasting in my daily exercise routine. I also combined the gym workouts too. I was in the gym for about 1 hour and 30 minutes on days I only exercised once.

Yes, I stayed consistent with my meal plan, but I also enjoyed some days. However, not on consecutive days. I had to learn balance, so it wouldn't slow me down.

The most important lessons I've learned so far are these five conclusions;
1. Believe to achieve.
2. I learned to take my beauty from the outside and keep it in my heart.
3. I have a voice to be heard, and it really matters.
4. I learned that the greatest strength I have is to be able to get out of the darkness with my own strength.
5. My trip is my trip. I can't wait for everyone to understand. I understand what counts most.

My advice: Believe in yourself, if no one else believes in you. The only person that matters most is you. There is nothing wrong with loving you unconditionally.

This trip arrives requires patience, understanding and confidence in the process. Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will take you where you want to go, nobody else.
