21 Day Fix –Day 14
September 1, 2014
As many of you know, I was very successful on the Ideal Protein Diet.  I lost over 65 pounds! I’m not proud to admit it, but slowly that weight has been creeping back on. I promised myself that I would not buy bigger clothes, so it’s time to do something about it now! So, I have decided to do the 21 day fix. I am going to share my experience with you from day to day during the entire duration of this adventure!

Week 2 is complete.  After a very trying and long weekend(We took our oldest boy down to UW to get him settled into College), I lost my way a bit, but I still managed to lose 3 pounds this week.    :D   I'm definitely losing inches, too, but unfortunately, I forget to get starting measurements until it was too late, but I can tell you that my jeans that were too tight, are on the verge of being too big.

The main focus of the 21 Day Fix is portion control of healthy foods.
The plan also comes with the workout videos…. I will workout every day for 21 days.  Some of those days are lighter than others, but trust me, you’ll be thankful for that!

You are encouraged to use Shakeology on this program, and after only 3 days, I found it difficult to swallow, literally.  I couldn’t get past it’s bitter taste(but like I said, it is recommended, not required) so, i have opted not to use it and I am just doing an additional protein container.

What I love about the program is that it gives you specific guidelines on what food you can eat and how much.  There are no additional products to buy, unless you choose to use Shakeology.  It’s all just clean eating and no guess work.

The workouts are tough,  you're going to love to hate Autumn if you decide to try it!  I’m still finding myself doing the modified version for some of it!    But I am getting stronger everyday.  I’m feeling a lot less sore too.  Stretching is very important, and so is drinking lots of water before, during and after your workouts!  Don’t forget to drink at least 64 oz. of water daily and if you drink caffeine, you should drink and additional 16 oz. for every 8 oz. of caffeine you drink.

Some of you are probably great at meal planning…. you workout with passion… you are awesome at eating healthy foods in healthy portions. But I am not, I get off track easily! But with a little help from the 21 Day Fix and some encouragement from my friends and family, I know I’ll be back on track in no time!
So, this is my 21 day journey. I’m on to week #3,  I feel  good!  And I'm down 8 pounds!  I can't wait for the results after week 3.  I'm feeling so good about it, I am already thinking I will do another round after this 21-Day fix is complete!
