Back on The Fix and More Reasons I Love It!

MY husband and I started the #21dayfix, again!  Round two, here we come!  I did take measurements AND pictures this time, so I can better show results.  

Today, my husband and I hit the gym, to boot!  It was my first time in nearly FIVE YEARS!  It was a little strange at first, but ok.  I didn’t do nearly the amount of complaining I used to.  😉  While I LOVE the way exercise  makes me feel, I HATE to process…lol…  

My husband is SO encouraging… No really, he’s great. And it’s annoying.  He counts and roots me on to the next one, when all want him to do is hush!  

But this isn’t about that!  It’s reason 38732984 I love the 21 Day Fix.  It’s a good filler.  I believe if I were a hard core gym hitter who went daily, this would be the program I would want for days I didn’t feel like hitting the gym.

It has a cardio day, upper fix, lower fix, Yoga, and Pilates.  Feeling a little under the weather, or simply don’t have gym time today?!?  Get a 30 minute fix out and WAM! You didn’t miss the day! You still got your exercise in!  🙂

Any questions?!?!  Feel free to ask!

Week Two of The Fix

We have begun week two, and I have to say that the diet and workout plan is getting surprisingly comfy.  We have looked up new recipes and tried new foods.  My husband is down SEVEN POUNDS!  I did not take measurements that way I should have, and you should, but I can tell things are definitely less jiggly!  I feel better day to day, and have less aches and pains.

I believe the #21dayfix is a great starting point for anyone who A) Just had a baby and is looking to get going again, B) is trying to eat better and isn’t sure where to start, or C) is trying to get into the workout scene.

It’s enough exercise to get results, but not too much to be intimidating.  If there’s an exercise you can’t complete, modify!  Like Autumn says…Just keep moving for the entire 30 minutes!!

The diet is VERY easy.  The plan comes with a booklet to explain everything in a LOT of detail.  There are tons of food ideas in the booklet, and PINTEREST!  You have to love PINTEREST!!  That is where a good bit of this weeks meals have come from.  I love that they are not full of junk…they just look more yummy, and taste delicious!

sqash

Spaghetti Squash and home made, out of the garden, sauce!  HUGE HIT!!!

breakfast

Pre-made Veggie Egg Bakes.  I made enough for my husband and I to have two each morning for three days.  This allows for variety, and it makes for out the door breakfast when needed!

spaghetti

 

Whole wheat pasta and leftover sauce! 😉  Delicious!!  Turkey sausages and veggies!!

Not only does this diet make me and my husband healthier, but it makes the whole family healthier.  The boys have been, surprisingly, compliant with the new meals.  It, also, makes for a great family meal time!  We make it together=we eat it together. #fitx5

Thus far my favorite workout is the Dirty 30.  It was rough, but I got through it and I felt better for it!  Autumn says to give her 21 days and she’ll give you the body you’ve always wanted…I believe her!!  If you stick with it and follow the instructions, I have not doubt it would work.  It may take a few cycles, depending on each persons starting point, but it will eventually happen.

I can tell the exercises have gotten easier already and look forward to the end result.

For more information, shoot me a message!!  The next group starts August 4th and I would love to have you in it!!

Coach Prospecting

I almost had my first coach!  The best part was that she would have been(/will be) awesome!!  I put (/will be), because she said “for now”.  😉

“Today has been such a busy day! I am normally full of energy, but today I am drained! Salmon is in the oven and veggies are cooking. Going to do my PIYO workout. thank goodness I have motivation and an awesome beach body coach, if not I would be skipping it today! I chose to not do the coaching for now due to a very busy schedule, but I know one and she is amazing if anyone ever needs one. Have a great night everyone!”

I was sad that she didn’t join me, but I was also flattered that she recognized me in this way!  I don’t feel like I do a whole lot, yet this is how I was described!  ❤  AND, as I said, it says “for now”.  She is a wonderful, motivated lady with a great passion for being healthy, and she will be a great coach some day.  🙂

You can be too!!  Ask me how! 

Day Four: Pilates Fix

Pilates was not AS BAD as the other days, but it still intense.  It was a nice change from the other stuff we had been doing.  It was mt first time doing Pilates and I do believe I enjoyed it!  I can’t wait to get PiYo! 😉

My legs are finally getting back to being useful…  Shew, the first couple of days were rough.

I think #21dayfix is a good starting point for my journey to being fit post baby.  It is a good workout, but can be modified if you (I) can’t do the full workout right away.  I will admit I do modify some things, and that’s ok.  By week three, hopefully, I will be able to do it fully!!

Post workout meal included strawberry Shakeology (yum), two boiled eggs, and water.  

I continue to feel better every day.  I have no idea how much my starting weight was, but I do have starting pictures.  As long as stuff looks tighter, and I feel less jiggle, I am satisfied.  It’s really not about the numbers, it’s about how you feel!!  And I feel better already!!  That, along with changing my eating habits (less cake ;), are my main goals before moving on to Brazil Butt Lift! 😉

I have a ways to go, but I am still super excited about my journey!  I am also excited about sharing it with you!  Let me know if you would like to join me!!

Back in Gear: Post Baby

Eight weeks post baby, and I have finally, all out, started my fitness journey!  WOOHOOO!!  I am stoked, and ready to get it done!!  Sharing it with you all the way!

But amazingly enough, next thing I knew, IT WAS OVER!!!  

YAY! ME!!

I have now completed day three. 🙂  My body is yelling NO!!! My mind is saying MORE!!!  The pain is only temporary when striving to reach your goals!  

The diet is definitely the worse part, for me.  I LOVE TO EAT!!!  However, since starting, I have realized it isn’t that bad!!

(BEFORE)

I Fell Off the Wagon!

I flew off the wagon and it drove away!!  

With all this snow, I became more and more lazy.  Eating yummy, bad for you snacks, was GREAT!  Yoga/BBL??!  Nah…maybe tomorrow.

Yesterday, I got yelled at and informed doughnut holes are not breakfast.  Though I still believe they definitely are, they may not be the BEST choice.  :-/

The baby just LOVES cake!!!  :-/  

So, here we are…climbing back on.  I have had my shakes, and I am starting my videos again!  🙂  I even ordered the new one!!  21 Day FIX!!  Can’t wait until I can actually do it…lol  AFTER baby!  It’s a great new program that lays it all out for you!  Portion control and exercise.  Loss 10/15 pounds in three weeks!  Who could ask for more!

Oh! And the limited time challenge pack price is only $13 more than a month of Shakeology…  You get the videos AND an month of shakes for $140!!  That’s a great deal!  No better time to try it out!

Let me know when YOU are ready to get started!  

Until next time!
