One day while talking with a friend, Claire realized something wasn’t right. She didn’t feel good. She didn’t feel like herself.
As a working mother of two young children, ages 5 and 2, Claire felt out of control and tired all the time. Like so many moms, the demands of her career and family were running her life. Self-care was not a priority, and she was struggling.
“I was at a point where I needed to do something. I still vividly remember having a conversation with a friend saying, I feel older than I am. I would have aches or pains, or I would just not feel like me. I knew it was probably a combination of a lot of things, and probably required some sort of jumpstart. But as a BUSY WORKING MOM it was like, I don’t have time, I’ll just keep muddling through. I’ll figure it out, it’s not a big deal— kind of devaluing and deprioritizing myself.”
What she needed was a change in mindset that would allow her to prioritize self-care and focus on meeting her own needs — not just those of her job and family.
That change finally came when Claire signed up for AMC’s 90 Days of YOU! fitness program.
“As I got into 90 Days of YOU!, and after, I felt a lot stronger and more in control, and certainly a lot better physically. I don’t have these intense feelings of being tired all the time.
Not only do I physically feel better, but I also physically look better. I’m fitting into some of the clothes that I had started to size out of in my pregnancy. But I think there is more to it besides just the physical element. There’s a strength element to it; I have more stamina. My husband and I went on vacation this summer and we traveled all over Portugal, which is a very hilly country. And I did awesome — way better than I would have done before 90 Days of YOU! in terms of stamina and strength.”
“I think most importantly, 90 Days of YOU! has taught me that you don’t need to strive for perfection. You don’t need to try to take it all on.”
The idea that something is always better than nothing— that not doing it perfectly is better than never doing it at all— is probably the biggest takeaway Claire gained from 90 Days of YOU!
“If you’re thinking, yeah I know I should sleep more, and I should drink more water, and I should eat better, and exercise… the thought of trying to do all of that, all at once, is really overwhelming. Taking baby steps is what 90 Days of YOU! teaches you.
You get small bites out of different topics, one at a time. The point is that you just start doing something. And it was like a waterfall moment for me. I found once I started doing weekly fitness classes, and then I started being really conscious of my portion sizes, and then how fast I was eating, or when I was eating, or why I was eating— I was in the habit of making changes and making new healthy habits.”
Understanding and implementing self-forgiveness in her life is one of the reasons Claire found 90 Days of YOU! to be so impactful.
“Before 90DOY if I had a bad eating week, or bad sleeping week, I’d come down really hard on myself about it, and just kind of pile on to it. And what I’ve learned with 90DOY, and having this culmination, is that’s okay. Overall, the whole point is three steps forward and half a step back still means you’re way further ahead than you were when you started.”
If you relate to Claire’s story and are feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, or frustrated about getting in shape after having kids, now is your chance to make a change.
Enroll in AMC’s 90 Days of YOU! program and start taking simple-yet-powerful baby steps toward getting off the exhaustion roller coaster, getting in shape and losing weight. Claire doesn’t regret signing up, and neither will you.
“Don’t think of it as 90 days, you just have to worry about day one. And it’s a really helpful program to create some discipline for yourself with a great coach and some great teammates too, who join and have similar goals and similar situations as yours. I found it so helpful to be able to hear their stories and hear their struggles. I know now I’m not alone.”
