Ever feel like you need a “Tune Up” or a change? For me it seems like when the Seasons Change I need a little extra “something” because honestly I just don’t feel my best. That’s a sure sign I need to buckle down and dial in my eating.
Also, in the Fourth Quarter I’m on a plane probably 2-3 weekends per month and traveling isn’t always kind to your health/fitness. It’s one thing to be able to stay at home, eat all your meals at home and have a predictable schedule you follow. But…who lives a life like that?
I’m breaking out my 21 Day Fix Program and will be tackling that again. Why did I choose Fix Original over Extreme? Well…to be honest, I knew there would be times that I might want to use a container for a glass of wine and I thought I would set myself up for success. I don’t expect perfection out of myself, but I want to put my best foot forward.
I completed the FIX original back in February 2014 when it was released and these were my results.
The first time I attempted the program I truly struggled. The first 3 days were every difficult and I ended up restarting the program. What I gained from that failure was pretty priceless though as it relates to Coaching others through the program. I realized that you have to be “mentally ready” and committed to the process. I wasn’t ready initially.
What do I think you need to do to succeed with 21 Day Fix? Here’s my Top 10 List:
1)Read the information in the book. (Everything you need to know is right there)
2) Figure out the Tier you will eat from and your water intake
3) Load a phone app for tracking containers or print tracking sheets
4)Create a Pinterest 21 Day Fix Board. Search “21 Day Fix Recipes” and Pin
5) Print Meal Planning sheets and choose 2-3 new meals for the week
6) Shopping for food
7) Prepping some food and common items like eggs, brown rice, chicken, turkey/beef hamburger
8)Create a written workout schedule with specific FIX workouts or a combo of “other” workouts you will be doing and the schedule time for your workout
9)Check in for Daily Accountability with your Online Support Group
10) Daily/Weekly Check-in with your Coach
And…don’t forget to take your scale weight, measurements and most importantly front/side/back photos in your sports bra and workout pants/shorts. You can use the self-timer function on your phone. The most important thing is the pictures, to be honest. You cannot weigh or measure loss of cellulite, physically “looking” better or that leanness in the core/ab area you get from this program.
If you aren’t a part of an Online FIX Accountability and don’t have a Coach, message me. I’d be happy to take you through the process. My Group is pretty awesome and I’m not bragging, but…I have 3 other Coaches that Host this with me each month. All of them have successfully done the program and we post fab recipes, healthy tips/ideas/suggestions, daily burst of motivation and we have a “daily mission.” Everything you need to succeed and stay inspired.

Cheers to Day 1!
