21 Day Fix Report Card

castle

This week concludes my 21 Day Fix * 2 !  I reported on my first 3 weeks on the 21 Day Fix in my Honest Review on August 8th.

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!

1.  Shakeology
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!

3.  Water
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!

5.  Stats
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!
Total Score:

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!

Fan Girl List for London - Part 3!

Tomorrow I head to London!  I am so excited!  So, it's time for Part 3 of the Fan Girl List for London!

Travel London Fangirl


This stop will include an all time favorite - Doctor Who!
And how could I not celebrate Doctor Who?  I was introduced to The Doctor as a little girl watching with my Dad.  And I recently was able to see the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, in New Orleans!  So, off we go on our Time Traveling adventures...

8. The Tardis
We will head straight for Earl's Court Station:  a blue police phone box is parked there waiting for us!
Do you think anything will happen when we step inside?? 

9. London Eye
A Must see for Doctor Who fans, the CocaCola London Eye, will be on the agenda!  The London Eye doubled as a transmitter for the Nestene Consciousness.  And if we want to get there just as Rose and The Doctor, we will have to run across the Westminster Bridge! (we may walk )

10. Stonehenge
I can hear River Song summoning us now... we will have to travel to Roman Britain, just as the Doctor and Amy did, to visit Stonehenge!  I'm not planning on finding Pandorica, but I promise to be careful!

It will be a fan-packed few days!  If you missed Parts 1 and 2, check out my 
Sherlock Holmes  Adventures!

10 amazing FanGirl experiences!  I am so excited to experience them all!  If you had one more thing to add, what would it be?
