Week One Done {Follow My Progress: 21 Day Fix}

Today marks the second day of Week 2 in my 21 Day Fix Challenge.  I followed everything pretty strictly last week.  I didn't miss one workout (I can't remember the last time I worked out for 7 days in a row), and ate by the book 90% of the time.  I also continued with my Shakeology every day for breakfast. 

Shakeology's tagline is "The Healthiest Meal of the Day" but I also say it's my favorite meal of the day because it is so easy, delicious and fills by chocolate cravings that I have daily!


I am happy to report that in Week 1 I've lost 3.6 pounds and 2.7 inches (total body).  I know that doesn't sound like much, but remember I lost over 5 pounds the week prior to starting this program.  The number that I'm seeing on the scale is one I haven't seen in a long time so I feel like I've pushed through a plateau this week!

The Good:  Although I'm sure most won't see a difference in me yet (my coworkers did say I looked skinnier on Friday), I can see a difference.  My pants are looser in the waist, my abs are tighter, and my muffin top is decreasing.  I actually love the workouts and look forward to them.  Each day is something totally different so you don't get bored and it's amazing how fast 30 minutes goes by!




Victories this Week:  I wore a top to work last week that's been too tight to wear since having Jack.  I also purchased my first romper on Saturday and wore it on Sunday!



The Bad:  Meal prepping has been taking up my time in the evenings that I would normally blog so sorry about that!  My health thanks you for being understanding.  My "meal prep" just consists of packaging everything for the next day, making meals in advance for lunch at the office, washing fruit, etc.  I never have time to do these things in the morning so I do as much as I can the night before!  It really doesn't take that much time, but that plus my workouts don't leave me much for anything else in my limited evening free time. 



Hopefully I can get some progress pics up by the end of the week.  Looking forward to a successful Week 2!

  1. So happy for you! I've heard nothing but great things about the 21 day fix and I'm pretty sure I'll be ordering it soon. Meal plan and prep has always been hard for me so I hope to overcome that with this program. I'm excited to see your progress photos!
