A word from Rachael:
”If you’ve been following me on Instagram, or reading my blog, you know that you girls are my main inspiration & motivation. This is why I recently reached out to some of you to ask about your progress and feedback. These are their stories. Hope you find them as motivating and uplifting as I have.”
In our first interview, we chatted with Jaycee Page, a 19-year-old girl from Wyoming. Here is a summary of her experience & results after completing the 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program.
JAYCEE: Before this program, I was super involved in sports and was always on a team. I never really had a specific fitness routine because I was always so active.
Towards the end of High School, my coaches started telling me that I needed to gain muscle and start weight training to become stronger, faster, less injury-prone, etc. So, I decided I would take a weight-lifting class during my junior year.
After taking this class, I found that my body started to tone up and I was really liking the way that I looked. I thought that lifting more weight more often would make me look even better. So I decided to do CrossFit the summer before my senior year of High School.
Ever since then, I did lots of HIIT workouts with burpees, squat jumps, and other exercises that were well-known for burning tons of fat.
JAYCEE: I came across the Free 7-day meal plan randomly online and decided to download it :) After downloading the meal plan, I automatically received all of Rachael’s motivational emails at the beginning of each week.
I never thought anything of it at first, but one day I felt super discouraged beca
I never did workouts that were specifically designed for my body type and what I was trying to look like.
Whenever I would start losing motivation, I would just think about how good I feel and how confident I am when I’m eating healthy and exercising.
JAYCEE: The most challenging part of the Program was a tie between the portion control and running.
When it comes to portions, I can eat A LOT of food. Eating at a caloric deficit was hard for me, but because of your Program, I learned how to listen to my body and know when I didn’t need food and when I did.
As for the running, it was hard to stay motivated because I was never used to running for 20 or 30 minutes. I had troubles with my knees after the first couple weeks and it was hard to go for a run even though I wanted to follow the program from A-Z.
However, as Rachael has recommended in some of her blog posts, I was able to swap the running for walking some days to give my body a little bit of a rest and then run the next time. Or, I could also run a little, walk, and then run some more. I just learned to listen to my body :)
JAYCEE: I started seeing results almost instantly. Within a week and a half, I was starting to notice the lower part of my thigh slimming down, which made me feel AWESOME!
After finishing the program, I was honestly blown away by my before and after pictures. They’re not the most dramatic transformation, but I’ve been trying to slim down my legs for a long time and have never seen any results.
I was so happy to know that simply adjusting my workouts and eating right could make such a big difference!
JAYCEE: YES! If my friends were trying to slim down their legs, I wouldn’t hesitate to at least introduce this program to them.
Your program is so simple and makes it easy to slim down in a healthy and efficient way. Also, it’s so much fun to see the results of so many other girls along your way. It’s so motivating!
Just know that you don’t have to be perfect. If you mess up on your diet, it’s not the end of the world, just forgive yourself and eat healthy the next meal.
If you wake up late and can’t do a fasted walk in the morning, still go walk in the afternoon. Something is better than nothing. You got this!
