21 Day Fix Challenge

When it comes to exercise and trying to lose weight, I’ve always been the type of person to just try to do things my way. Last year, I ran a lot, made healthy meals and that was really working for me. I was running up to 3x a week at lunch time, and that was enough – but this year I have totally fallen off the bandwagon.

Last year I worked in an office with only 1 other co-worker who sat across the room. We have no showers at work, but I would run at lunch and sponge bath and that was fine. This year, the production team is much larger and I can’t sit around in my sweat all afternoon if I run at lunch – so that’s when the lunch run ended, and I’m sad to report that I didn’t pick up the exercise anywhere else up until a month ago.

I’ve gained weight. I’m not happy about it, but it happens and I just need to get back in to a routine that is going to work to get the weight back off. Something a little more than what running alone was doing for me.

I joined a fitness club, and that has been working out okay, but I’m at a point where I need to do MORE than the 3x a week exercise that I’m doing – and it’s not just more exercise that I need, it’s also a new eating routine.

After much thought about how I was going to get this all going, I decided to stop being stubborn about trying to control how my dieting happens (as in, not my own way, but actually seek help), and try a clean eating and exercise program. I settled on beachbody’s 21 day fix challenge.

I received the package today and read through the material. It’s pretty straightforward, and it’s definitely a diet that I believe I can follow (despite the lack of sugary foods, salty foods and all the other crap I like to eat *LOL*). I figure I can at least do it for 21 days. Realistically I probably need to do it a couple of times, but let’s see how this first round turns out.

I start TOMORROW.

I am taking before and after pictures, and I’m hoping I will see results and that will motivate me to keep going. I really want to be in shape!

  1. I came across this post and I have to say, you are making the right decision by going with the 21 day Fix program. I’m sure you have started already, and I hope it is going well. I am just over two months into the program – I just keep doing it. 🙂 I have also combined other workouts with it now too – Cize and PiYo. I am steadily losing pounds and inches. Keep at it.. if you are looking for support and encouragement, reach out to me. My journey continues and it is my pleasure to help others begin (and continue) theirs. You can do this!
