Last Thursday I started the Beachbody 21Day Fix. For 21 days I will follow a meal plan of my own, drink Shakeology and complete the 30 minute workouts. I have always been one to try something new, sometimes sticking to it and love it or try something and hate it. I’ve tried the Beachbody 10 minute trainer videos last year and loved them; summer came and went, work started and I gained 25 extra pounds in 3 months and fell off the wagon. Not healthy at all. Especially when you have two doctors telling you, you need to do something!
So fast forward through the new year, and bring on February. I knew with my trip coming up this Month, I needed and wanted to do something immediately. I didn’t like the way I was feeling emotionally, mentally and physically; I was/am a stress eater and I was not going to get better by sulking in my house.
I had read all over my social media that Beachbody was coming out with a new product. The more I read about it, I said to myself, I can totally do this. I had already changed my eating habits by following Michi’s Ladder since last year (saw a huge difference until last fall) and knew I needed to do more. I wasn’t really exercising and I had no motivation to do so.
After talking with my Beachbody coach and friend, I decided I was going to commit to this new product. It’s only 21 days right?! Anyone can do this. Well, let me tell you I was never more excited to see a box outside my door. There, that very box, I knew held the key to my new healthy lifestyle. And in just 21 days I will feel better about myself. Which we all know is like a circle. Feeling good about ourselves by looking in the mirror literally affects every aspect of our life.
It’s only been 6 days and let me be honest with you. In just 3 days I had already noticed a difference. My bloating belly had gone down, I was eating throughout the day and I didn’t have that 3:00pm nap that I’ve grown accustomed to. I was finally eating foods that fueled my body.
Now that I’m 6 days in I’ve already lost 4 pounds and an inch around my waist. All from my meals being portioned out according to the containers, following the 30 minute workouts, and drinking Shakeology. And my meals are foods that I eat. Anyone who knows me knows I have an appetite of an 8-year-old. I was beyond elated to know this is something I can not only do and complete in 21 days, but continue even after.
I am so excited to see where I’ll be one week from now. I am also started the 30 day Shakeology Challenge with some people, so I will be held even more accountable.
If you would like to join my challenge or have any questions about the Fix, please don’t hesitate to comment. I am so excited that I have found something I can actually do and enjoy.
Happy 21 Day Fix!
