Trisha’s 21-Day Fix-Week 3 Complete!
21 Day Fix –Day 14
September 8, 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.
Week 3 is complete. This week was a little tough, because I sent my oldest boy off to college so, I found myself eating a little unhealthy at times. I still manged to lose 2 pounds, so overall after just 3 weeks, I'm down 10 pounds! 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, especially upper body exercises! But I am getting stronger everyday.
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 has been my 21 day journey. I’m down 10 pounds and I feel good! I’m feeling so good about it, I started Round 2 today!
