LeanGreenMama Bootcamp Review and Giveaway

I think most moms will agree that they would like to take better care of themselves. I know that I wish I had more time to exercise. But with three kids under four and a husband that works crazy long hours going to the gym just isn’t in the cards for me. I have a treadmill in my living room, but its dust is growing dust. I don’t know why I bought the stupid thing, I hate to run. So my normal exercise routine is to try to squeeze in a dance workout from Fit TV. And now that the channel is gone, I’m left with nothing.
So when I was approached to try out an exercise program, I jumped at the chance. The company is LeanGreenMama International and they provide free online videos. The videos talk about the success to lifelong weight loss. The owner of the company, Jennifer McCay talks about her keys to successful weight loss and maintaining the loss.
I know that online videos may seem like an impersonal way to lose weight. But in reality, it’s a great tool for busy moms. You don’t have to drive to the gym or arrange for babysitting. And you can do it anytime.  Plus, Jennifer is there to answer any questions you may have. I got the opportunity to try her six week bootcamp for free. Since the program hasn't started yet, I will write about my experience as I go. Edit - I got to start the program today and week one's focus was on diet and adding in healthy lifestyle choices.

Here is some more information from LeanGreenMama
If you go to LeanGreenMama subscribe, you will be able to access the videos in my promotional video series called “Get Back Your Mama Mojo and Lose the Weight for Life.” What I share is really exciting because in addition to sharing basic “traditional” tactics like how to lose weight healthfully and naturally in terms of food/fitness, I put a great deal of focus on how to actually make weight loss “stick,” which most programs don’t help with at all, and it’s what I’ve found is the make or break in whether someone succeeds or not. I am passionate about helping other moms because I too once struggled with my weight and had to do everything differently from typical “dieting” to lose my weight. I share my story in the first video in the training series.

The Giveaway

The program consists of six videos that you can watch at your own convenience. The first video will be available on June 8th. Training will be a combination of 1 training video per week that you can watch at your convenience from your computer (designed for moms with difficult schedules), as well as live Q&A calls and call-in times when you can get Jennifer’s  personal attention to help you. There will also be plenty of resources at participants' disposal -- a guide to healthy eating, recipes, a guide to ease-in approach to healthy lifestyle changes, and other materials to help you later on down the line, such as handling plateaus, staying motivated and focused and that sort of thing.
