Anita says,
"I was really stressed out when the bootcamp started and considered postponing. A few days before bootcamp started our landlord told us he was selling the house we were renting and had a month to find a new place. So along with finding a new house we also had to move, unpack and get settled in. You and Shawna really made me feel like I could succeed even when I felt exhausted. Fusion really does shock your body! Thank you guys so much! My confidence, self esteem along with my health have gotten so much better. Instead of trying to hide my body I am now excited to buy new form fitting workout clothes. Even better than fitting into smaller sizes is how strong I have become and continue to get stronger. I can now keep up my speed and gears in spin class. I never thought I could. I actually look forward to classes now!"

I did Shawna & Jos' Fusion Boot Camp this summer - a merge of WLBC and Amp for 8 weeks - and wanted to share a quick 5 things I learned from it to inspire anyone who may be on the fence!

1. I didn't believe I had the ability to change my body (but I absolutely did).
I was at a pretty low point in my self esteem, and had the eating and drinking habits to prove it. I had put on about 20 pounds from my usual weight in the past year, and I had come to the conclusion that as I was getting older, this was just what was going to happen. I mean, I didn't eat that bad, and for pete's sake I worked at Fusion Fitness so was taking classes 4-5 times per week ... what else could I do?!

2. I had to admit to myself that a huge cause of stress/unhappiness over the past year had been my eating/drinking habits.
My temporary bandaid for any tough emotion (and for that matter, even happy emotions) has always been food (and more recently, wine.) The cycle was thick: eat crappy food/drink, feel like crap, fix this by eating crap/drinking, then felt like crap, etc., etc. I had to admit that this cycle wasn't working, and if I continued on, I would only keep gaining weight and feeling even worse. Not to mention the 'brain fog' I was constantly in from having so much junk in my diet. "But I work out almost every day," I would tell myself ... ya, well, struggling through classes half-assed because I was hungover from junk food and wine wasn't exactly giving my body the benefits it needed!

3. It's so important to ask for help.
It's easy to think we can do everything by ourselves, and my famous excuse for not joining a camp was, "well, I already KNOW what to do, *cough cough* I just don't want to do it." But as much as I thought I knew, I learned so much more from Shawna and Jos about nutrition, PORTION CONTROL, and the little ways to continually help myself stay on track. About a week before the camp started I text Jos my own 'before' pic in my bra and undies - I was so embarrassed at the picture but I needed her to tell me that I could actually make a change - I truly didn't believe I could do anything that would make a difference in the way I was feeling and looking. I also had the help of my friend Hilary (who basically forced me to do the camp with her.) Having her to text at 9pm "ALL I WANT IS CHEETOS PLEASE HELP!!!" was a huge deal - we were going through this together.

4. One step at a time is the only way to walk a mile.
In the beginning of the camp, I was pissed. I was pissed that I couldn't have my wine at night, I was pissed that I had to get up early to do my workouts, and I was ROYALLY PISSED that I couldn't lean on junk food anymore. But I'm here to tell you, it only took a few days for me to start feeling a difference. I had more energy, I was feeling incredibly in control of my daily choices (not a normal feeling), and my confidence was increasing simply because I knew that I was putting one foot in front of the other on the way towards a goal. 

5. The confidence I gained from setting a goal, sticking to it, and actually seeing results has truly changed something inside of me.
I lost about 11 pounds, but more importantly, I found that I had the ability do something I set my mind to. I had accomplished other goals in life, but as for body image, food habits and physical appreciation of my body, I had experienced so many failures in myself that it was truly scary to embark on this and I didn't believe I had it in me. I can't tell you how amazing it was to actually FEEL my body getting stronger - doing pushups used to be the worst thing on earth for me, and throughout the 8 weeks I discovered that doing them was actually my most favorite part because I felt so strong. To know that I created this strength inside of my body was a huge deal to me - I had never done anything like it before. I have gained a brand new respect for myself, which has given me the ability to believe in myself and take this into all other areas of my life. It was 100% a game changer, and I'm about to celebrate my 37th birthday full of excitement with what I have the ability to do. Take that, AGING!
