#10aDayWithKat FREE Daily Workout Challenge: June 2018
I talked about my experience starting the 21 Day Fix HERE. After our awesome time experiencing the YUMMY side of Austin, I decided to take turn this into a 28 Day Fix – and get back on track another week after our trip to regroup! We DID make some smart choices in Austin and made sure to share a lot to watch portions.
Then there were moments we had wayyyyy to many “yellows” (a.k.a. Carbs) in the form of Austin goodies and sweets.
BUT once home, I made a quick trip to the store and immediately food prepped so we had healthier goods in the fridge ready to get back into the week at work on a positive note.
Zucchini boats for the win!
Workouts haven’t ever been the issue with me. I LOVE IT. I LOVE the feeling I get when I get home from work and can let endorphins take over, making me stronger and sweaty and SUPER STELLAR!
FOOD is the main thing I can trip up over – le sigh – so the focus continues on with that – NO doubt!
How’d I do though?
By the way, posting any results or before/after photos is nervewrecking! It’s always scary to be judged or looked at BUT if I could motivate one person to try something new – to focus on THEM to be better in any way possible – it’s ALL worth it in the end.
I didn’t lose any POUNDS – which no biggie at ALL! I’m already semi-petite and wasn’t shooting for pounds lost, always inches and muscle tone – and that’s just what I got! I always stress for people to focus on changing their BODY COMPOSITION – more lean mass means more muscle burning fat down the road for the long haul! I LOST 10 INCHES ALL OVER! My waist, arms, hips, legs, all lost inches over the 28 day time span! I surprised myself! I even measured twice then three times with another measuring tape just to be sure! I mostly noticed a difference in how my jeans fit – perfectly without anything hanging over YAY. Also, my posture and back has gotten better with a renewed focus on yoga through ‘The Fix’ and in general with stretching.
I am SO much stronger and for that I am GRATEFUL!
* Easier focus on portions even for veggies and proteins so I ate less but more throughout the day
* Easy color-coded measuring/carrying containers
* Fun varied workouts easily incorporated into the week
*Shakeology has helped me get in an easy but EFFECTIVE breakfast daily and I owe a lot of my inches lost to it!
* Freebies like mustard and balsamic vinegar add TONS of flavor to food
* Creativity was encouraged for meal prep each week to keep it all fresh
* I love sweets. It’s a problem. I know it. I am retraining myself to rarely eat them, see them as a treat, work them off, substitute them.
* Alcohol on vacation and weekends needs to be reeled in. It’s a treat like sweets, but not in excess.
All-in-All I LOVE recommending this program to people especially those wanting to focus on a multitude of workouts that are easy and under 30 minutes while also targeting their nutrition! SUCCESS is measured through victories NOT related to a scale, but related to how you feel and how you measure up in regards to muscle versus fat! I have had TONS of energy since I started Shakeology and now have that much more from drinking a ton of water and eating proper amounts of veggies and clean foods daily.
What now? I keep what I’ve learned in my back pocket, focusing on food portions and being aware of what I eat and when to FUEL my BODY! I maintain workouts and focus on strength through body resistance as well as remain MOTIVATED as I COACH OTHERS through this program! If you want MORE INFO ON the 21 DAY FIX – go HERE
I also wanted to share another motivating SUCCESS STORY from a Beachbody family member of mine, Heather H.! Heather started out feeling overweight, unhealthy, having some chronic health issues she struggled with before she decided to TURN THE PAGE and make a change! She focused and FOUGHT hard from start to finish multiple Beachbody programs (Including Insanity Asylum and 21 Day fix most recently – she’s got workout A.D.D. like me!) along with taking Shakeology and has shown incredible results! She was part of a Challenge group early on as well (accountability group of peers like the ones I do monthly) and focused on fulfilling her DESTINY to lead a healthier and happier life! It was never instantaneous, but over the course of a year she lost over 70 lbs & 72 inches !
Heather’s story is so similar to mine so definitely hits home!
She also won $1000 from Beachbody in their Beachbody Challenge contest held monthly – she’s now up for the Quarterly prize and I want to virtually cheer her on to winning!
