My 21-Day Fix Journey
Yes, I’m feeling extremely vulnerable here but I’m not only holding myself accountable but I also made a promise to myself and committed to this health and fitness journey. Who knows maybe there are others who feel the same or are in the same situation as I was.
First, when I decide to do something, anything, I give it my all. It becomes something I’m committed to. I give nothing less than 200%. This is what makes me a great valuable teammate, an incredible hardworking employee and your best ally anyone could have. It is with this same commitment that I approached the 21 Day Fix as a customer, a coach and most importantly, an everyday woman/busy mom with weight to lose. 40 pounds to be exact.
Ever since the box of colored containers and the plan showed up I was ready to get fit again. I knew that if I just dedicated myself to the program nothing bad could come of it. I was right. I lost 10 pounds in 21 days. That’s 3 weeks! In less than one month I went from having a 38 inch waist to a 37 inch waist, which is still a work in progress but In 21 days I changed bad habits and learned new, healthy ways to eat.
The meal planning wa trulys easy because I read the entire booklet and planned ahead at the beginning of each week. I created a calendar spreadsheet system to help me through the first few days and afterwards duplicated those meals. I was able to combine foods from different containers to create yummy and satisfying recipes. I used a similar Shakeology cup to track my water intake, and I stayed on top of healthy eating by keeping the fridge stocked with fresh produce, fruits and by drinking Shakeology everyday. The workouts were fun and challenging. Every workout had a modifier, and women and men of different fitness levels and body types were featured on the DVDs. I love that! During the double workout week (the last week of the program), I’d complete 1 workout when I got up at 5am and then later in the evening added the second workout just before the family went to bed Yes, it was truly a time crunch for, but it was oh so worth it! The additional workouts during this final week of the 21 Day Fix amped up my endurance and I felt like I accomplished something.
My goal is to lose a total of 40 pounds before my birthday. But that’s not all. I want to increase my muscle mass and lose fat. I want washboard abs, a lean body and a clean bill of health. That’s where the lifestyle changes come into play. I couldn’t come home and have a snack on those salty junk foods every night when my goals are to be lean and fit. I thought it would be really hard for me to break those bad habits, but by Day 3 of the 21 Day Fix, I was over the hard part. I sweat out the sugar, salt and fat cravings every day and emerged victorious. I am stronger, fitter, happier and a much better walker! Oh My God and my sleep is sooo much better. No more sleepless nights for this momma.
What I gained from my 21 Day Fix Journey:
- Portion control knowledge
- Better Meal Planning skills
- Love of new healthy foods
- Love of Shakeology
- Less appetite
- Better Sleep
I have been, and still am, extremely hesitant to post my before and after photos. I was literally in tears when I posted to my personal page on Facebook. The before photo is horrifying to me, I wasn’t happy taking the photo at all and the after photo, although amazing for 21 days of work, is still not the real me. It’s still this other, bigger person that I do not like and am not comfortable living with. Regardless, this is the commitment I made to myself and to anyone who joins along on this journey with me. So without further ado, I present to you the Before and After photos:
