About 3 weeks ago I wrote about starting the 21 Day Fix. Sunday, I finished it. I didn't miss a single workout. The workouts definitely got better as I progressed through and I have my favorites and ones I dislike for sure!
I don't have a great estimation of what it did for my weight. After part way through the first week, I checked in at 170, which is 2 lbs. higher than where I started. Then my scale died. And I don't mean needed new batteries died, I mean was dead. So I bought a new one. This one is mechanical, so no batteries needed! It may not be as exact, but it's close, and weight isn't something I want to obsess over, so that is a good fit for me. So finishing the program on that scale I'm coming in about 164-165, which means I probably did loose a few pounds during the program. The scale doesn't really bother me too much, it's more my pants fitting again, and we're not there yet.
I do feel like the workouts are helping though, I didn't measure inches, and probably won't, but I think there would be some results there is some places. I hope anyway!
I've always felt better when I've been working out, and this was no exception there. I like the short 30 minute session and I love the clock countdown on the screen! The Dirty 30 and Upper Fix are probably my two favorite workouts. Although I do like the Pilates too. Cardio stinks, and Mondays, or Total Body Cardio, is rough. Mondays are tough though I think more from a mental standpoint for me. I struggle mentally through this one every time.
Well, to avoid having to buy new pants before I go back to work again, or an attempt anyway, yesterday I started the program again. This will take me up until the week I go back to work. At that point I'll decide what to do next.
I'm still not following the eating plan, and I certainly have room for improvement there. The first week and a half I did well at improving my eating at least, but it slumped again the last half. I'll keep trying here. I'm so hungry though with breastfeeding, so if I have baked goods in the house, I'm doomed. Currently there is a cake Caden made, cookie brownie's he made, cookies my mom made, and a couple donuts left from the trip to the bakery after the ER for Elinore yesterday. So there is certainly a will power challenge here. So far today, I'm failing it. I can turn that around any moment though!
