Hey Guys! Well, I’m one week into the 21 Day Fix program and I am LOVING it! I can’t believe I’m even saying this, but I’ve already lost 5 pounds! I haven’t taken all of my body measurements but I did measure my thighs and stomach and I’ve lost 1 inch around each. OMG. Heck yeah! Never have I seen such quick results from anything. I had some pretty drastic results from running but that was over a long period of time… this is ONE WEEK. I can visibly tell a difference in my stomach.
Keep in mind… I have never tried a DVD workout program in my life. And I have never used a Beachbody product either.
So far I’ve been good and stuck to the plan. The hardest thing for me I think is the VERY limited amount of wine! Haha. After a long day in the office and then coming home to being a mommy until 9:30pm… I so desperately need that glass of wine some nights! On the plan, you can sub out one of your yellow containers for a 4-ounce glass of wine three days per week.
This is what 4 ounces of wine looks like. LOL, I know! So needless to say, I used all three opportunities! 🙂 Ha. I bought the little mini bottles of merlot, which has 6oz… so I even splurged a little and enjoyed 2 extra ounces. Oh well! I figure if that’s the worst thing I do during these 21 days, I’ll still be doing pretty good!
I’m getting the hang of the meal plan and figuring out how to add a little interest to my plate. I am not the type that can live on bland chicken breasts for lunch and dinner every single day. I made spaghetti squash with marinara sauce the other night. Yum! Added some fresh green beans and (sigh) some chicken… because I needed SOME type of protein and that’s what I had on hand. TIP: Don’t undercook the spaghetti squash. It had a crunchy texture to it. Yuck! For lunch the next day, I added some water to the dish and microwaved it for about 10 minutes to finish cooking it and soften it up a bit. Much better!
So anywho, just wanted to give you a little update of my super exciting progress so far! Can’t wait to post my final results in two weeks!!
