Beachbody 21 Day Fix so far

beachbody 21 day fix so far

 

 

 

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.
