Well, hello girl friends <3 and maybe the random guy who stumbles upon my blog. So I started the 21 Day Fix Extreme workouts as soon as I got it... I'll admit, I got the 2 Day Shipping because I was so excited.
BUT I totally dropped the ball on my diet...Here's my excuse (I told you we all have them)... I knew what I was doing, but it was also somewhat on purpose. I knew I had a few events and things coming up that I wanted to indulge in and had planned. You gals know how that is! Who can say no to beers at Disneyland California Adventure... I mean why not. How often do you get to Disney and pay that much for a beer? ;-)
I truly believe in life balance... and creating a shift in mindset with out guilt tripping yourself, while still embracing the things you want to do. I can't imagine being so strict that I forget how much I love pop tarts once in a while... (or once a month). I've done the crazy strict thing, and it just led me down a dark path of secret food binges.
That is a path I don't really want to go down again, so for me personally it's learning self control and knowing when to have fun. It was not an easy balance to find and it takes work everyday to maintain it.
This was last years results... and I know I can do this again. And DAMN I felt GREAT after the 21 days.. it made this whole meal prep so much easier. Surprisingly, I wasn't as committed before the Fix came out, I just kind of winged it. This absolutely filled in the 'gaps' - you know those questions we all ask 'what do I eat? How much do I eat? When Do I eat it? How much fruit should I be getting? How much protein should I eat? Do I need a multivitamin?"

Our success lies in our daily choices and habits... you are in control of what you do.
All within reason right? For me, its not ALWAYS 'all or nothing' 'black and white' ALL the time.
However, I want to do the 21 Days as best I can. I checked my calendar to make sure that there's really nothing to disrupt or at least find ways I can remedy social outings. The good thing is I have Shakeology and I can volunteer to DD (which I NEVER DO...)
So I'm doing this. 21 Days. 3 Weeks. Meal Plan. Portioned Containers and color coded per food groups. 30 min workouts via DVD. My Dvd Player. and ME.
So here we are... Day 1. I'm excited. I have a good idea of the workouts and now its time to stick that meal plan. As accountability, here's my food prepared for lunch. Tomorrow I have to grab a few things -- produce and veggies. Otherwise I'm good, I just want to make sure I'm 100% stocked on healthy options.
I'm doing it right this time ladies, no short cuts. Not skipping the before photos. No excuses!
Day 1 was successful! Stuck to my portions, got my workout in and honestly, Plyo Fix Extreme is an amazing lower body workout... I would love to see the person who doubts at home workouts sweat this one out... Alright 20 more days to go!
