Lindsey's Transformation Story

WOWZA! 🤩 Need some extra motivation this week? Look no further than Lindsey's Beyond the Challenge story! Lindsey participated in both of the Spring and Summer CSE Challenges. Trying to balance raising 5 kids while working a full-time job had her putting her health on the back burner... UNTIL she found CSE! 👏🏻 We found her story to be relatable on SO MANY levels! Keep crushing it, Lindsey! We'll be here cheering you on!


I cannot say enough good about Clean Simple Eats and the life changing affect it has had on me and my body! I initially started my health journey at the Spring 2020 challenge in April of this year. After having 5 kids in a decade and working full time I was overweight, tired and had no confidence in my health. I was a perpetual snacker of all things bad. I didn't take the time to help myself. None of my clothes fit anymore and I was just plain frustrated with my health and what I had become. I had tried several other programs or "eating right" just to lose maybe a few pounds in a month and then something would occur and I would gain those pounds back. I enjoy eating and especially treats. I would "fall off the wagon" and felt somewhat depressed about my body image and what I had let myself become. My sister introduced me to Clean Simple Eats and I decided to join the Spring challenge. I saw a huge change in my body and my mental game was on fire which continued to motivate me forward. I then couldn't wait to continue my health  journey with the Summer challenge! I told everyone who asked about my health and fitness journey about Clean Simple Eats.

During the Summer challenge I continued to see progress towards my health and fitness goals. Although the workouts still kick my butt, I am to a point where I can finish a cupcake at the end of workout Wednesdays. I held a head stand for a whole 3 seconds in week 7's cupcake! I was able to do 1 pull up in a Hustle workout my husband and I did! Although I saw movement on the scale, my nonscale victories and overall progress that I had during the summer challenge is what I am most proud of! I'm fitting into clothes I forgot I had (and that are very out of style since it has been years since I fit into them)! I took off 2 inches from my chest, 4 inches from my hips and almost 1.5 inches from each arm! I am stronger and my stamina lasts longer during workouts! I am honestly thrilled with the results!

I love the food! Each new dish I tried during the summer was fantastic. There has honestly not been a dish that I have made that I didn't like. Some were more hits with the family than others but overall the meals have been well received and eaten by my 5 picky children! I am proud to be serving them good wholesome food that will fuel their bodies for better! I am proud to step out on the soccer field and play with them or run along side them knowing I can keep up and won't embarrass them (or myself)!

This is not the end. I plan to continue to incorporate Clean Simple Eats meal plans and workouts as a part of my daily lifestyle. I have not reached my fitness goals yet but know that they are attainable and that I can reach them by sticking with JJ and Ericka's program. I can't thank you enough for creating these fantastic meal plans, sharing your exercise expertise with me and helping me become a stronger and healthier person! Clean Simple Eats for the WIN!!
