I continued with portion control for the next 4 weeks, but concentrated on my running. For the last 3 weeks, before I left for Disneyland Paris, I jumped back on the 21 Day Fix routines.
Was the Second time around easier? Harder? Better? Here is what I thought!
I continued to drink Shakeology every day! I love it. I took the blender bottle and Vegan Chocolate powder to work. I am on a very busy schedule right now, and I knew I wouldn't have the extra minutes in the morning to mix it up in the blender. The blender bottle worked great! And I will continue to keep it at work!
2. Daily Exercise
Doing the routines every day seemed to be harder because I was so busy at work. My first time around, I got up early every morning. This time, the majority of the workouts were done after work and before bed. Morning workouts make me feel so much better!
Drinking my 8 glasses or more of water has become routine. I really hate the taste of tap water or water fountain water, so I stocked up on Evian or Fiji. The liter bottles helped me get the ounces in!
4. Portion Control
Portion Control has become routine. My stomach/head know how much is just right or too much! I feel really good, too. If you know me, you know I struggle with low blood sugar, and the focus on my protein has really helped!
This is the best part!
At my Review on August 8th, I had lost 3 pounds and a total of 4 1/2 inches.
Between August 8th and September 15th, I have lost 5 more pounds, and a total of 4 1/2 more inches!
Weight: 8 pounds
Waist: 2 1/2 inches
Hips: 2 inches
Butt: 2.5 inches
Thighs: 2 inches
Body Fat: 3%
I went into this not expecting "instant" results. Even though Beachbody promotes 3 weeks to success, we are not all wired that way and persistence is the key! Do I have rock solid abs? No... but I'm getting there! And I will keep on working!
Thanks to everyone for being so encouraging! I'm looking forward to the next workout!
