Congratulations to our Summer 8 Week #1uptransformationchallenge female 5th place $2,000 cash prize winner Jackie Atoigue @jackster.atoigue
This is her story
“ My husband found and joined the 1Up Transformation Challenge in the spring of this year and I LOVED the total mind-body transformation I saw in him so much that I decided I too wanted to join.
Six weeks prior to the start of the challenge I had my second child via c section, so I was really nervous to join. Not only because I had just given birth, but also because I would be a nursing mom. After consulting with my doctor and getting the all clear to workout, and what supplements would be okay to take, I jumped right in. I loved going to the gym daily and really focusing on lifting for the first time in my life.
By the 2nd and 3rd week I began to struggle with postpartum depression, but got the help I needed so I could continue on my fitness journey. Pushing through on days that I didn't want to get out of the house really changed me as a person. I've learned to properly lift, push myself to new heights, and not hold myself back. I feel like the best version of myself and I know this is just the beginning! I want to be a strong mom that my kiddos can look to and admire. I want to empower them and others to reach for their dreams and break glass ceilings.
Although it may feel dreary at times, we are never truly consigned to live a life others choose. We choose our stories, so doubt you’re doubts before you doubt yourself!”
