Well is it just me or did it feel like January ticked over just yesterday and it’s almost MAY! Eeek! How are those New Years Resolutions going? We here at Salt Lake Prenatal Massage have something to pump you up and re-motivate you all over again. We’ve been waiting to release this post to help inspire you all to re-evaluate where you are, where you would like to be, and update you with some good news to help support you.
Starting October 15, 2011 we launched a 12-Week Fitness Challenge to help keep participants motivated through some of the TOUGHEST times of the year (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years Eve/Day). Participants had the option to weigh in weekly, for accountability, and workout on their own; or they could work out with Jen Larsen, Maternity Fitness & Wellness Expert, 2 times per week and do the weekly check-ins as well. Before we get into the details TOO much we need to give some shout outs to our top three winners AND our magnificent prize donors!

Our third place winner was Alicia Trujillo from South Jordan, UT. Here are her stats:

- Lost 4.94% body fat!
- 14.75 INCHES overall
Below are Alicia’s before & afters. She says she got more than what she came for, “I saw results, felt results, I’ve changed the way I eat and the way I exercise.”
Alica says, “I loved that being in the challenge held me accountable for my actions (or lack thereof) every week. Knowing that I would have to step on that scale every week and get those measurements done every 4 weeks helped me to make wise food/portion choices and motivated me to exercise whenever I had the chance. I liked going to the classes because it was nice to talk to and see other women dealing with the same weight loss struggles that I am. The classes were challenging for me which was very good, I really like the way Jen formatted the class.”
