Kim our “28 Days of Chirstmas Winner!!”

28 Day Christmas Challenge Contest WINNER!!
HI!! You are the WINNER!!
Congrats and thanks so much for your SUPER participation via my BuffMotherPage on facebook!! You were a stand out during the entire contest and I love your willingness to share your passion for fitness with the world!!
Thanks and Congrats~
Love,
Michelle Berger
Kimberly Of NY
I am 41 years old
I have 2 children (13 and 11)
  1. How do I feel the 28 days of Christmas Challenge helped me during the crazy holiday season?
    The contest helped through a lot of stress this time of year. Gave me something to focus on instead of worrying about things I wasn’t in control of right now. I am someone who loves     to give gifts. Deciding, finding, and giving a gift is one of my favorite things to do. We had to cut back a lot this year, so I was unable to ‘give’ as much as I would have liked. The     contest helped me deal with the situation and focus on things that matter more than monetary things. The kids stepped up and helped as well. A great holiday!
  1. Summarize my performance in this contest…
    I realized early on during this contest that even though I was working out most days I wasn’t pushing myself as hard as I could. Reading other Buffmother posts helped me see that.     So I began looking for and planning tougher workouts. Now I am trying new gadgets and heavier weights. Trying hard to think outside the box and give it all I got. Thanks,     Buffmothers!
  1. Are you happy with your results?
     I was very consistent and on track with my workouts throughout the challenge. Had a strong start with my eats, but had trouble Christmas week. Getting back on     track as type this. This is my 2nd contest and I always feel that my results could have been better. I put a ton of effort into the contest, but there is always something I could have     done differently or better. Always a work in progress. So overall I am happy with the things I have learned along the way, but I can do better each day.
  1. Encouraged by? Denyse W. and Suzi V.. I love our dynamics as a group. We work well together for accountability and encouragement. Inspired by? Robin W.. I love her enthusiasm, dedication and sense of humor. She has been a great addition to the group. I look forward to seeing how far she can go.
  1. I shared my pics most days on the Team Buffmother and the Buffmother sites. Lots of fun!
  1. In closing: As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed the contest. It is an amazing thing to have so many wonderful women to discuss common interests with and help those women when they need a word of encouragement. I enjoyed the workout proof pics. A great add on to this contest. Gave us a chance to show a different side to ourselves, open up and be creative. The occasional questions you passed along to us was helpful to me as well. They made me pause and think. I started a separate journal to keep those answers to look over when I need to regroup or refocus. I’ve made so many great friends these past 6 months. Can’t thank you enough, Michelle Berger, for changing my life. I have my goals set for the new year and a renewed focus on what I want from my life. Thank you!

Here are several of Kim’s “workoutproof” pictures from the contest~

Shine in 49 Runner Up – Sarah Pacia

Name: Sarah Pacia of RI
Number of children and ages (it’s okay if you have 0): 2 boys ages 6 and 2
Age: 41

Why did you enter the “Shine in 49” contest by BuffMother? I entered because I want to win!   I am excited to be in a contest.  I also joined the contest because I know how great Michelle is at motivating me and how knowledgeable she is.  This contest also fell at the perfect time to get in shape for bikini weather.

What tactics did you use to stay focused and engaged for the entire 49 days? The mirror is a great tool!  The group on facebook also kept me going.  Every time I would hear about someone else’s great results it pushed me to try harder.  I felt so good working out and seeing results. I care about myself and want to feel good about me and my body.

How do you feel about your success? I feel good about my results.  My clothes fit better and I am confident in my workouts and in wearing shorts!

What obstacles did you have to overcome in order to attain your goals? I had to be flexible when finding a time to work out.  My husband is a firefighter and is gone at off hours and I have 2 young boys with no family nearby to help with childcare.  The gym I belong to does not provide childcare.  Another obstacle is I live in a house of white carb lovers but overtime the temptation of eating foods that go against my goals went away!  I also work in Boston part time and when I’m gone it’s for 12 hours a day.  Really, none of the obstacles slowed me down much, I had a goal in sight to get in the best shape I can over the 7 weeks.

What would you like to tell the world about BuffMother ? I’ve been telling anyone who I speak with about working out that I’m in the contest and how Michelle had 4 children in 4 years and won several competitions the following year.  I also tell them how she helps other moms and women get in shape online and offers so much help and support.

Can I have your permission to post your entry online? Yes

6-9-12  Hi Michelle,

Thank you so much for holding this contest and providing such great and helpful information that I am going to continue to use towards my goal of being fit and in the best shape of my life!

I’m having a really hard time choosing 1 after photo so am attaching 1 before and 2 after…I’m sorry if that’s a bother!  I want to show you my back and my abs.  I love to do core exercise 🙂  I feel like it keeps me strong in my workouts and in every day life.  My true before and after picture if I had to choose would be the 2 pictures from behind.

You have done wonderful things for me including helping me feel good about myself and I can’t thank you enough!  Thanks again for giving me so much. I will continue to spread the word about buffmother!

Your friend,
Sarah
