21 day fix

So if you following me on Instagram or Facebook (which you should  ---> links over to the right) then you know that I have been doing the 21 day fix from Beachbody.

Have you heard of it?

Well let me start a few months back around March 1 of 2014 when I ran the Lake to Lake Relay. I saw pictures after and was like what? That's not me.

  Far Left if you aren't sure


Truth is it was. I had somehow (I really know how....still in denial lol.) gained 11 pounds back from last summer.
To say I was depressed was an understatement. That number still defines me in my head. I knew I wasn't feeling great. I was sluggish. I wasn't sleeping good. I figured it was a restless toddler and winter.

I needed to change some things. I started calorie counting. Which I hate. WITH A PASSION. It is just so hard and not for me. I lost 5 pounds doing that.
Then I heard about the 21 day fix. I can do anything for 21 days. So not only did I order it but I signed up  to become a Beachbody coach. I believe in them and in me.

So 3 weeks ago I started. By the 3rd day I knew I could do it.  Real food I love.Food I choose. I can even incorporate my food into what my family is eating and I do not have to make different meals.

So 3 weeks ago I started and today was the end of my FIRST 21 day fix. So how did I do....



7 pounds and 12 inches total overall. I consider it a success. WHY? I lost of course but more importantly I gained a new me back. I had a few slip ups. I enjoyed some dinneres with my family. I had Easter candy. Even with all those things I did not let it discourage me.I just started back to my new path the next day. I have more energy. I sleep so much better through the night.

The workouts are awesome. Even though I hurt my knee doing them just before Ragnar. No biggie, just modify and push through.

So are you ready to start your 21 days? Start here

Do you have great clean eating recipes?
