It’s been awhile! I’m happy to say I have been chugging along on my fitness journey, making slow and steady progress. I continue to work out with my personal trainer twice a week and do my own workouts 3 (or so) times a week.
I’m not sure if you can tell from progress picture, but my upper body has leaned out substantially and my shape is also changing (I’ve gone from 29% body fat to 23%!).
Why I’m frustrated:
– My lower body continues to be the bane of my existence…I’m not seeing much changes there
– My weight has virtually not budged (I know the scale messes with your head, but frustrating nevertheless)
– I’m not seeing enough progress for effort being put in, which in turn results in me self sabotaging with food/alcohol
As such, I’ve decided that a) I need to find a dummy-proof nutritional plan that I can follow and not starve on; and b) I need to be even more consistent with my workouts and bring them up to the next level!
Solution: The 21-Day Fix Extreme. It’s essentially a nutritional program which uses coloured portion-control containers and a day-by-day workout program.
I know myself. When I have too many choices I choose to do nothing. I like that this program seems to follow a very regimented schedule with little room for improvisation.
The “bad news” (I use this term very lightly) is I leave for Bali in exactly ten days. But I figure, I can give it my best shot for ten days and leave for my trip knowing that I did everything to feel my best. I’ve had a great start to 2016 and really devoted the time to taking care of myself, but am now ready to take it to the next level! And when I get back, I can give it my 100% and do the full 21 days!
I’m starting up my instagram and blog again to help keep accountable and tap into the wonderful community of like-minded people on similar journeys I’ve missed so much!
Has anyone tried the 21-Day Fix before? If so, what were your results?
