I love the 21 Day Fix. It’s easy to follow, ensures I eat good food and the workouts are challenging but not too demanding. When I first started the workouts I gave up 9 minutes into the first workout. Now I’m finishing all of the workouts and I’m able to modify less and less with each day. I don’t have to look at the scale to know that I’m getting stronger, I’m simply able to do more in my workouts and have more energy throughout the day.
The last few days I’ve been cheating on the nutrition plan and I’m hoping I can stop that soon. I’m still following the plan but then I indulge in something that I shouldn’t. Hey, we’re all human, it’s normal to cheat. It’s not okay to cheat though, and this is just part of what I have to learn on my journey. I’ve thrown out most of the bad foods or given them to others, but we still have a few things that my husband likes. My husband can afford to eat all the junk food in the world with his metabolism. And that’s another battle I find myself fighting. I see that so many more people succeed when they workout and eat healthy as a couple or even as a family. So, while I don’t have a significant other interested in my journey he is supportive and I’m thankful for that.
So if you’re thinking of losing weight or struggling to shed some unwanted pounds, don’t beat yourself up over it. We’re not perfect and sometimes we fall off the wagon. But it’s up to you to pick yourself up and get back on it again. One bowl of ice cream isn’t going to kill your whole diet because tomorrow is another day. Don’t throw away all of your hard work over something so insignificant. If you need some encouragement or advice please contact me! I’d love to be your personal coach- for free!! 🙂
