I completed my first 21 day fix and I really really liked it!  It wasn’t hard to follow and I did a pretty good job of sticking to the plan.  My only complaint was that I had a hard time getting in all of the fruit and veggie containers each day. 

I lost 3 lbs and 5.25 inches (if I measured right). I lost in all areas but gained inches in my calves. Lol. I haven't taken after pics yet and not sure that I will since it wasn’t that much weight loss. I plan on doing another round of 21 DF.

21 Day Fix

Well, I’m starting over AGAIN.  I got tired of BBM.  The accountability group I started fizzled and fizzled fast!  One gal was posting the workouts which was nice.  Then she stopped and I tried for a few days.  But then I gave up when everyone else did.

Yes, I am tired of starting over.  SO tired of it!  I just need to buck up and stop giving up!

Then one night I was talking to a friend and she mentioned my neighbor sells Beachbody and she was doing the 21 day fix.  She had told me about Christy’s weight loss.  I was intrigued. 

I met with Christy and she filled me in and let me look at the materials.  I loved the portion control part of it.  That is exactly what I need!  I loved that it wasn’t a lose weight fast program, even though it is only 21 days.  It teaches you how to eat and the right foods to eat.  It was similar to WW but more.

So I purchased the program and started today!  I wasn’t fully prepared but I did ok.  I still have some colors left over (you’re supposed to use them all up) but I thought it was a decent start.  The workout was intense but I loved it and can already tell I am going to be SORE!

Shit just got real...

I'm back! 

I can't believe it's been since Sept that I've blogged.  Well, yes I kind of can.  Life has been busy!!!!  I had full intentions of redoing BBM 2.0 but honestly, I didn't like it.  I decided to redo BBM 1.0 with some friends but then eventually threw in the towel on day 45 on Oct 20:

"Ladies, I suck! I am not fully committed to the challenge this time. I feel horrible for not posting but I keep letting life get in the way. I NEED to do the workouts but am having a hard time getting to them. So unless something changes then I won't be posting the workouts. If someone else wants to do it then please do!!! I hope you all are able to get the workouts in. I'm not making any excuses come the 3.0 challenge though and I will need you guys, my accountability partners!"

So I let life get in the way and didn't make time for it.  Then I decided to let life just get in the way, period.  I didn't watch what I was eating or drinking and stopped working out regularly.  I started snacking at night and not healthy choices.  I was drinking more beer and wine than normal.  Then the holidays came and that brought more food and sweets.  It was not pretty!

I knew the weight was creeping back.  The batteries in my scale had died so I had no idea what I weighed.  I could feel it though!  I was not happy and borderline depressed about it.  It affected my life more than I thought.  I noticed that my seat belt in my car didn't have as much slack, something I've never worried about.  I was exhausted more.  And honestly it was affecting sex, something I never mentioned to Jim but I'm sure he knew.  I hated the way I look.  My stomach felt like it was growing by the day!  I felt like I looked pregnant and I hate that!!!!

SOOOO, Monday came around and I saw that it was Jan 5.  The start of BBM 3.0!  I decided to switch the batteries in my scale and see if it made it come on.  It did!  I nervously stepped on and saw 251 lbs!  The HIGHEST I have ever been...ever!  Shit just got real!!!!  I knew it was bad but not that bad.  I had a melt down!  Tears, self pity, searching for motivational quotes and pictures.  I texted my BFF and Mom, my two main supporters.  They were great. 

I decided that TODAY was the day to start over, NO EXCUSES!  I can not go on like this.  I want to have energy for my boys.  I want to be able to keep up with them.  I want to be around for a long time! 

I took my measurements and again, cried!  After Ryan was out of school I went to Costco and stocked up on veggies.  I am doing this!  I texted Jim and told him that this entire week I'm eating chicken and veggies and that's exactly what I planned to do!  This is currently one of my favorite meals...Chicken, roasted brussel sprouts and this rice that I found at walmart.  Yummy!

Poor Jim!  He had no idea what he was in for when he got home from work on Monday night.  I again broke down into tears and told him I'm embarrassed.  I told him that I need his support and I need for him to help keep me accountable.  He was cool with chicken and veggies.  He too wants to lose weight (it's so easy for guys!).  He is always a great support and I really don't give him enough credit. 

We had our pictures taken at the end of November.  I really wanted a nice photo of the two of us.  We got a few nice picture but I hate them!  I hate the way I look.  All I see is the added weight and my double chin.  

So I started 3.0 on Monday and have done the workouts every day.  I've eaten really well all week and have drank at least a gallon of water each day.  I have been logging everything on MyFitnessPal.  I am feeling good about it!!  We did go for pizza last night but I just had salad and one slice of pizza. 

So here we go AGAIN!  I don't know how often I'll get to blog, it seems like I never get the time anymore.  But I will check in here and there for my accountability for myself.  I WILL do this this time!!!
