Introducing Christine B. of #TeamLetEmHaveIt: 1stphorm #Transphormation Challenge Athlete



I have been wanting to do this for a while and I am finally buckling down. I know how scared and amazing it was for me to share my journey with complete strangers over 3 years ago! (WATCH MY TRANSFORMATION VIDEO HERE) I got a lot of weird faces, judgment even lost a few friends and or acquaintances...but let me tell you...I have never been better. I know the courage it takes to jump in head first into something you don't know the outcome of and give it 110%. I am about to introduce you to the men and women who like me have taken on this challenge and are changing their life and others in the process! 
I do apologize as this post was supposed to go up yesterday but sadly yesterday went up into flames...today is a new day and here it is! but you will see these on TUESDAY from now on!!! xoxo

So today I am going to introduce you to Christine. Christine found my Youtube channel because she was searching for information on a cruise! I just so happened to have vlogged my whole cruise and there you have it! I introduced the #Transphormation challenge and she jumped in head first!!! I have asked her some questions to share her experience as well as share what her workouts look like, her full day of eating supplements she takes and more! I hope that this will help YOU start your journey today!

PLEASE EMAIL me if you have any questions and to get started!!!! xoxo colorblindblog@gmail.com

So lets get to it! 

This is CHRISTINE everyone!!! 


"I haven't seen this weight in YEARS!" she is actually at 148 TODAY!!!!

What is your name? Christine B
How old are you? 33
Where do you live? Massachusetts
When did you start the #transphormaton challenge? March 1st, 2016
How much did you weight when you started? 174(and some change)

How much do you weigh now? 149.0 (and shrinking)

Have you changed your clothing size? I went from a barely closing size 16 to an 8 or 10 depending on the cut.

How did you find out about the 1stphorm #Transphormation Challenge? Shana's Youtube Channel! ( https://www.youtube.com/user/ColorblindFitness )
What motivated you to start? So many things, I didn't want to be the hypocrite nurse, over weight, eating junk and telling others to lead a healthy life and make good choices.  I was tired of feeling uncomfortable in my skin, I wanted to feel strong, and healthy.
What was your fear going into the challenge? Injury, failure, ripping the ass of my stretchy pants while squatting...whacking myself in the face, the usual gym self consciousness-ness(is that a thing?)

How do you think you overcame that fear? "everyone is here for bettering themselves, nobody gives a shit about you unless your hogging the equipment they want to use, now go move heavy things" has become my mantra
Did you think about quiting? of course! that first month of intense work outs after being so sedentary sucked!
Why didn't you quit? honestly, i saw a meme that said "it doesn't get easier, you get stronger" so when i went from walking at 2.5mph to 3 w/o breaking a sweat and jeans i hadn't worn in ages fit again, it gave me the push to keep going.
What would you say you love most about how your life has changed since you started? I have more energy, i sleep better, my blood pressure is lower, my resting heart rate is lower...i can keep going
What are you goals for the next 12 weeks? Squat my body weight and keep working towards that unassisted pull up.
What does your typical day of eating consist of? 
So today wasn't a typical day as it was super crazy at work, and it was also one of the doctor's last day at the clinic so they had a catered lunch at the office, but I thought today was a good example of with some planning and some solid, healthy choices you, or rather I, can stay on track:
SUPPLEMENTS: 1stphorm M-factor Goddess Multi-Vitamin, thyroid pill (I have hashimoto's) and Bone-Up calcium/vit d

Meal 1 - more substantial than I usually eat because I knew work would be crazy, normally I do a shake/waffle/pancake or egg white omelette not both, but today I had both, because of reasons.
coffee with 4 oz almond milk
protein waffle (1 scoop level-1, 1 whole egg, dash of baking powder and water until it's batter thick)
2 slices thin slice fully cooked bacon
15g salted caramel nuts n' more peanut butter
egg white omelette (100g egg whites, 1 wedge laughing cow light swiss)
Tabasco sauce
Cal 464 Protein 54 Fat 21 Carb 11


Meal 2 -usually do 3 hard boiled egg whites today but it it didn't happen

Meal 3 - tried to make the best choices out of what was available for the lunch provided, didn't have my scale so i approximated
1 cup grilled asparagus
1 cup garden salad w/ vinaigrette dressing
1/2 cup blanched green beans
1/2 cup German potato salad
6oz chicken Marsala
Bone-Up calcium/vit d
Cal 382 Protein 22 fat 8 Carb 59

Pre workout) rice cake with peanut butter and 1stPhorm Megawatt(blue raz) snack 2.5 before the gym today i did 30 min steady state cardio 10 min abs and 10 min bi/tri/shoulders
Fitbit says I burned 236 cals today

Meal 4 - (post workout) 1stPhorm Phormula 1 which surprisingly tastes better when mixed with water
Phormula-1 loop de fruit 1 scoop mixed with water
Cal 100 Protein 22 Fat 0 Carb 1

Meal 5 - I knew the German potato salad I had with lunch sucked up most of my carbs so no tiger roll for me
Wholefoods Pacific Salad Roll
Bone-Up calcium/vit d

Cal 200 Protein 10 Fat 8 Carb 23
Meal 6 - I like to have something high protein before bed with my 1stPhorm Opti-Core (switching to 1stPhorm Downtime PM next week)
1 scoop Level-1 Chocolate Coconut
4oz unsweetened almond milk
6 ice cubes
Cal 159 Protein 24 Fat 4 Carb 6


Totals
Cal 1305(-15) Protein 133(+1) Fat 41 (-3) Carb 99 (0)

Here are a couple of Meal Preps and Meals!



What is your favorite Supplement STACK right now with 1stphorm?  I have thyroid issues so I can't use the bliss go pack but my endocrinologist gave me the okay for the goddess multi vitamin, full mega and opticore which I think I'm going to swap out for downtime PM for a couple of months to see if it improves my sleep

You can find all of her Supplement Stack on www.1stphorm.com/ShanaEmily
You will get Free Shipping in US only if you guys use my link! 
THANK YOU for all of your support!
What is your favorite flavor protein? WHAT can you not live without? chocolate, i'm really bummed out that the peanut butter cup isn't gluten free.  I'm also less than thrilled they d/c'd chocolate coconut.

What is your favorite go to EAT CLEAN snack? recipe? hard boiled egg whites, lol I go through so many eggs.
What does your workout split look like?  I don't have a set routine, if my legs are sore i do arms and back, if my arms are sore i do core and/or legs. I just listen to my body, if it needs rest I rest.
How much cardio do you do a day? I've been trying to do fitstar's 10 min ab routine every day, it doesn't always happen but i try.  3 x a week i do 30 min on random incline at 3-4mph, i do mossa fight work outs at least once a week and 30 min on the arc trainer if my knees are acting up.
What would you tell someone who is thinking about joining the 1stphorm transphormation challenge or just any challenge in general? Advice? Go for it! It may be a struggle to start but if you keep with it you will see results and no matter how much help you get along the way, you have to do the work yourself, so you can be proud of yourself for every accomplishment even if it seems small.
You started sharing your journey on Youtube, Instagram and even in the private FACEBOOK group. how would you say this has helped you through your journey? I feel like sharing my progress keeps me accountable to myself.  I mean, I have 6 followers on youtube, which is crazy, there are 6 people who have in some way invested themselves, for 2-5 min a week, in hearing my thoughts, my progress.  So if people i don't even know are giving up 2-5 min of their life, to silently support me, well then I'd better bring it.
Christine forgot to mention that while she has been doing all of this she has been working full time and a full time nursing student who GRADUATED!!!!!! My mom did this twice once in Israel and in the US and I know how demanding and how difficult it is! So proud of you Christine you are a FREAKING ROCKSTAR!!!!!


Lastly, what are you most excited about doing that maybe you would not have done before starting this journey? I'm just glad that i've finally figured out how to listen to my body, but what amazes me is how much I actually enjoy exercise now.  If I go more than 2 days without doing something I get cranky, I never thought I'd be *THAT* person!

Thanks for all the love and support!

all the best,
Chris


MY MESSAGE TO CHRISTINE:

Hi love. I know we don't know eachother that well....and we have only met just months ago...but I am beyond grateful that I decided to go on a Norwegian Cruise ship and film the whole thing haha because without that you would not have found me and become part of a team I never thought I could have. I am like you and all who join. Yes I was a dancer and yes I workout...but an athlete? A coach? a mentor? a motivator? You my love have inspired me daily with your constant honesty and hard work. Keeping it real and making sure to let everyone know that there are days that just SUCK.

It took me a lot longer to realize that NEVER SETTLE means to keep going and to always believe that it is possible even if it seems as though it isn't. Thank you for believing in me and entrusting me...I am learning through this and you have been a guiding light helping to set an example for our team and all the men and women who struggle with this choice. 

I hope this is a start to a beautiful friendship and while I know we have busy schedules and so many things going on I can count on you for some inspo and I hope that I can do the same for you. Maybe next time we go on a cruise together and LET EVERYONE HAVE IT!!!! Thank you for your love and support and for being an example of the 1stphorm #phamily.

  2. Great motivator you are.. I am struggling form last 6 months to reduce my belly and thigh fat. For this i do some lifestyle changes. I think a healthy lifestyle has both short and long term health benefits. Long term, eating a balanced diet, taking regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight can add years to my life and reduce the risk of certain diseases including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and obesity.Thanks for sharing..
