Thoughts for Thursday: 21 Day Fix Update

I am currently on Day 18 of the 21 Day Fix (first cycle).  I haven't followed it perfectly the whole time, but that's life.  I am proud of myself that when I have "fallen off the wagon" I jump right back on.

Yesterday was a long day.  I worked all day, got home at 6pm, played with Jack and made dinner.  After dinner did the whole bedtime routine only to have to do it a second time because he threw up all over himself  and his bed (and me) when I put him down to sleep.  After cleaning the kitchen and doing some laundry I had a conference call for Houston Moms Blog until 10:30, followed by some food prep for the next day.  By 11pm I hadn't done either one of my 30 minute workouts (it's only 30 minutes per day, but I missed the day before).  I powered through and worked out from 11pm-12am and was asleep by 1am after winding down. 

Obviously this can't be done every single day, but my whole point is to say that it can be done if you make it a priority.  The old Chelsea would have curled up in bed with a book and some chocolate after that conference call at 10:30 and "rewarded" myself for a long day. 

My reward came today when I woke up feeling sore, but good and down a pound with some extra room in my previously tight pants. 

One of the biggest factors in my success has been my Beachbody Coach Emily and online 21 Day Fix Group she created (and by group, it's just me and one other person - ha)! This is just a private Facebook group that we are in where we check-in daily with our progress, struggles, or funny moments.  We started on the exact same day so we are always on the same DVD together.  When I feel like I can skip a day or take the week off since things are crazy, I think about these 2 gals and keep going. 

I know everyone has different motivators, but mine has been being accountable and not letting my coach or challenge buddy down...I am a people pleaser to the core!

I am now signed up to be a "coach" (aka seller) of all Beachbody products including 21 Day Fix, T25, Insanity, Shakeology and the upcoming and much anticipated PiYo Workout (I'm leaning towards starting this one next...it looks like it will be very similar to Pure Barre/Define type, low-impact workouts!

I would love to start a group online and start one of these programs together to cheer each other on.  I won't know what to do with myself when these 21 days come to an end on Monday!
