Well, I am on Day 16:) I could not be more please with how this is working out. I took my measurements, but I didn’t take pictures :/ So far I have lost 10 lbs and 9 1/2″ 🙂
Ok, I will say I was not in the worst shape of my life, but I was definitely not in the best. I love the eating plan because it doesn’t feel like a diet. It is more about making conscious food choices and portion control. I have an app on my phone to help me keep track, but it’s not really necessary.
Down to the hard part — the workouts. There is a modified version of each move if you aren’t ready to do the full move. There are still moves that I end up doing the modified ones, but I always start out trying the regular move first. You just need to listen to your body and only push as far as you can, and then a little more.
Day 1 is Total Body Cardio, which I have an intense dislike of. Kicks my behind every week. Since this is week 3, technically you would think I was done, but no, not this chick. This week I am doing the optional Doubles week so I will have to see it one more time on Thursday.
Day 2 is Upper, just prepare for the burn, in a good way.
Day 3 is Lower, BTW I hate leg day
Day 4 is Pilates, which thankfully requires no weights since it is an “active recovery” day. This focuses on your core, so be ready for some sore abs.
Day 5 is Cardio, 30 minutes of heart-pumping exercise.
Day 6 is Dirty 30 – 4 rounds, 8 exercises
Day 7 is Yoga, my favorite of all since it is an “active rest” day and I just totally and completely <3 yoga.
Then repeat. It does get easier each week, but not “easy”. It just meant I wasn’t on the ground dying.
I am not doing the whole shake thing at this time but am contemplating it for my next round. And yes, I am going to do it again. I really do love it, even if I grump about it the whole time I am doing it. I have so much faith in the system that I am actually considering becoming a Beachbody Coach.
