Never Miss a Monday

Day 8/80

STRONGER today!  I slept terribly due to a sick babycakes and it took some coffee to get my day going this morning, but I pushed through!  I felt more comfortable eating every 2-3 hours and I drank half my body weight in ounces of water.  GOAL!  Also, I was brave and increased my weights and resistance bands today for 2 of 3 rounds of the 60 minute workout.  Can I be real with you?  60 minutes is sooooo long.  I am a 30 minute workout girl and that’s why I was successful with 21 Day Fix!  It was just short enough that I didn’t quit and was encouraged to keep going!  You can get access to this program on Beachbody on Demand.  If an 80 day commitment seems overwhelming, you could always start with 21.  What I am learning by doing 80 Day Obsession and these longer workouts is to focus on 1 day at a time.  I am not going to worry about Day 80 right now…it will get here soon enough.  Today I worked on Day 8 and finished it!  My sister and my friends are also committing to this program and having their support and encouragement has been extremely helpful and made this more fun! 🙂

I did not have results like some of the challengers in our group.  Many lost between 5-10 LBS.  I GAINED.  Here’s the thing, all of our bodies are different.  It’s not uncommon when starting to work out with an intense workout regiment to have inflammation which will cause the scale to go in the wrong direction.  I know I have to trust the process no matter how frustrating that first weigh in was for me.  AND back to that Whole 30 mentality of NOT stepping on the scale and obsessing about that number…there are other ways to measure success and I’m sharing some this week.  Thanks for visiting!
