One choice....21 Day Fix!

Welcome to my re-invented blog!  Here I want to journal my progress as a Beachbody Coach, but more importantly, a Beachbody customer!  On October 1st, 2014 I started my journey to a healthier lifestyle. It was the day after my 40th birthday, and I had been unhealthy and overweight long enough! The week prior, I joined a 'clean eating challenge', with my Beachbody coach and it helped me get my nutrition back on track. I took my birthday 'off' and enjoyed one last hoorah!  On Oct. 1st, I dove in, head first!!! 21 Day Fix was my tool of choice. It comes with a food plan, containers to use portion control, a variety of workouts, and a month supply of Shakeology. 

When I first started (mind you, I was a good 70-75 lbs overweight), I had to follow Kat, the modifier, quite a bit. The movements were tough on my body and I sweated like a pig!  The first three days, I experienced soreness like I never have before. Lactic acid is a very real thing!  I had to use the hand railings to get up and down my stairs. I opted for the downstairs bathroom because I could hold on to the counter to lower myself down to pee...and pee-ing I was! Drinking the gallon of water a day made me feel like I was living in the bathroom. After day 4, the soreness subsided and I just got to enjoy the benefits of the workouts. I had tons of energy, yet I slept great! My bowels were regulating (after years of irritablility issues). After day 4, I even started to like the taste of Shakeology. Yes, I didn't love it at first. I'll post about that later. ;)

Fast forward to the beginning of week 3. I decided to do the 2-a-days!  What!?!  I pushed myself so hard and I made it happen!  By the end, I had to modify only a couple things. Jumping jacks are a bladder issue for me, so that was modified. That and burpies!  :) 

Ready to see my results:

12 pounds and 9 1/2 inches burned off...FOREVER!!!  Guys, 21 Day Fix and Shakeology work!!! Like I said before, I still have a long way to go!  I have another 50 lbs to go. Want to know how I'm doing it? Currently I am doing P90 as I wait to start 21 Day Fix over again on December 1st. I am a huge P90 fan now, too. It's like the old P90X, but more realistic. It's only 30 minutes and all levels can do it. 
I've maintained the 'clean eating' regimend and I always watch my portion sizes closely. I still splurge now and then. We still have to be human. :)
Here's the deal. I have a small group I'm going to host on Facebook I'm calling a 21 Day Fix Accountability Group. Let me know if you want one of the few spaces remaining. Hurry and order so it arrives in time. It starts December 1st. We will have you looking 'Hott for the Holidays'!!! Go here to order 21 Day Fix:

I'd love to be your coach!  Let's do this...together!!!
