All 5s today. Thank you for the group encouragement!! Also thank you to Margy and Christa for being great coaches. It has been hard but not impossible. Also I have had a really rough work week. Having this group and having something I could control really gave me something to feel good about. I have felt empowered that I was finally doing something for me. No matter what was happening in the world around me I did not quit!
“I couldn’t do a real push up before starting this journey in October (2015), and now I can do over 10! (March 2016) And I’ve lost about 11 lbs, and I have definition in the top of my abs for the first time in my life. The biggest change though, is the way I feel. More energy, stronger, and I know how to eat to make myself feel good. I know how to indulge and when not to. My nutrition is definitely still my weakest link, but it is far better than it’s ever been. I don’t think I’ll ever be someone who can eat clean 95% of the time, but I’m okay with that. I’m more of a 70/30 kind of girl, I think. But that is hugely different than what it used to be!
“I’m so thankful that you reached out to me a couple of months ago… that definitely put me on the path to reach out to you when I was ready. The group has been so helpful in holding myself accountable. I have so much energy, and I am down 8 lbs since I started this week. I know this is not sustainable [continuing to lose that much each week], but I think it is telling of how drinking enough water and eating cleaner has just totally cleansed my body of crap. I feel so good and inspired to keep it up! Thank you!!”
After finishing Total Body Fix, I could tell such a difference today from how I did the first time I did this workout [2 weeks ago]. I don’t have to use as many modifications and I just feel so much stronger. So awesome!
Week 3 started today with total cardio fix. My limit for sticking with workouts has been 2 weeks. So excited to break this milestone!
Upper Fix 1/2 done this morning. I was running too late to get it all in. Stay tuned for my evening selfie after I finish the second half Also, I found myself able to do so much more this week and I felt robbed that I didn’t get my full 30 minutes. I love this new mindset and consider it a big win!
Dirty 30 done. Ready for the weekend. I must be getting into a routine. My girls asked when they got up if I had done my exercise yet and if they could watch me. They also like showing me their exercise routines. My goal of being a good example for my girls is being achieved in just 6 days.
Went to one of my favorite restaurants tonight and instead of ordering my usual I got a salad full of veggies with dressing on the side, and just the right amount of meat. Christa [my co-host of the group] helped me so much! She even looked at the menu for me. I also put my portions on another small plate. As I was sitting there I said, “I never thought I’d be the type of person to ever order dressing on the side.” I’m that person now. Thanks for all the help and motivation!
Cardio Fix done! I also had my shake and am feeling good! Today was a challenge (most days have been), but it’s been so awesome to have my husband’s and this group’s support! Thank you all so much! You all motivate me to keep doing it!
Thank you all for your support. I’ve been feeling a little down these last few days which made some doubts creep into my head, but these results, compliments, and your support has given me another boost of motivation!!
Hubby coming home early from work didn’t happen, so neither did my afternoon yoga class (at the studio)… But what DID go down was an episode of Pilates Fix Extreme!! And that is reason # 4,367 why I love being able to work out from home!!
Lower fix and second half of upper fix done! Feeling great! Just ran around with my older son as we waited for the bus and I love the energy I have this morning!
