Phase 1 - ✓ COMPLETE!

Well, I did it! I held fast and stayed on my path to reach my goal before my birthday! 

I completed my first program on Beachbody! I started with 21 Day Fix and aside from missing one day after a friend's insane wedding I have gotten up at 5:30 AM (minus weekends) and pushed that play button.

This past week was a struggle, waking up was harder, finding the urge to push play was harder, I struggled through the workouts but I got it done. I also checked the scale and much to my disappointment noticed I had gone up in weight but like my husband reminded me, muscle weighs more than fat.

Luckily I did make sure to capture before pictures cause seeing the changes my body has gone through following along with the workouts and the diet paired with the program (as close as I could, I mean Momma is gonna splurge now and then!) made me feel a lot better. I have also been adding in their 10-minute ab workout on my yoga day just to make sure I still got in some of that "burn". (That's one of the areas I'm focusing on in my journey. Who doesn't want a six pack?!)

I'm loving all the positives that are coming with starting on this journey! Getting to have some "Me" time in the morning while knocking my workout out helps me start my day off on the right foot, adding a shower in every morning has also helped with clearing my skin up (I was washing my face in the morning but taking a hot shower helps open the pores up so I know I'm getting all the dirt and grime out - plus I'm rinsing all that sweat off.), I have more energy, more patience for my boys (and their crazy antics) and seeing the changes my body is making to be leaner & fit. This journey has even sparked my husband's interest to get back on a healthier lifestyle (and the boys mimicking some of the moves lol). It really has been a win-win for our whole family.

Now that I completed the 21 Day Fix program my plan is to do the Beachbody Yoga Studio 5-Day Yoga Challenge with Caley Alyssa, take a small break for my birthday (maybe do more yoga if I feel like it - like I said, I'm really enjoying my morning workout!) then jump into the 21 Day Fix Real Time. Minus splurging on some yummy birthday meals I plan to keep following my diet with using my containers and the staying at the calorie intake I'm set at. Here's to a healthier, fitter & happier me!

Now on to the results from Phase One!

I'm so happy with the results I'm seeing and proud that I've only taken 2 days off this month! To be honest it's far more than I even thought I'd initially do!
