|21 Day Fix|
Happy Monday! I don’t know about your area, but, today is a cold and dreary day here in Central PA! I wanted to take some time to do a little progress update as well as write about some decisions that I made in terms of my health and fitness. So, if you follow me at all, you know that I have been doing Tony Horton’s newest program, P90. While I was enjoying the program, I was really getting the 21 Day Fix itch! I’ve been following the 21 Day Fix nutritional plan for months; however, I took a break from the workouts and started doing other programs. Anyways, I began a November 21 Day Fix accountability group last week and everyone kicked off Day 1 with their workouts and following the nutrition plan today. After giving it some thought, I decided that I wanted to do a another complete round myself, right along with my group! I really feel like this program will be FANTASTIC for getting through the holiday season.
Since I’ve been following the plan for quite some time now, I’ve gotten to the point where I can just “eye ball” my portions; however, this is a crucial time of year! It’s that time where temptations are EVERYWHERE! So, I pulled out and washed my containers, did my meal plan, got my workouts back out, and am committing to it 100%! I am really excited because I always seem to get great results and feel GREAT when I fully commit to a round. I am going in to this round fully prepared too, which is what led me to this blog post! I wanted to share some tips that I have put in place to ensure that not only this round of the 21 Day Fix goes smoothly, but to also ensure that those holiday temptations don’t get the best of me!
Tip #1 Schedule your workouts!
Something that REALLY helps me stay on track is having a schedule that I can cross off as I progress. Call me crazy, but I get satisfaction in being able to cross something off of a written list/schedule, so, I created this calendar of workouts when the program came out. Within the accountability groups that I run I ask my challengers to rate their day each evening. Everyone checks in on how their workout went, if they drank their Shakeology, and how they did with staying on track with their meal plan. This would help you better understand the layout of my workout calendar. In addition to know what workouts I am doing each day, I also have a plan on the time of day as well. I know that on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday’s my mornings are a bit busier due to my girls going to preschool, so, I plan to be up and ready to go for a 6:30am/7:00am workout, On Tuesday and Thursdays I usually use my morning time to do a little work and then do my workout while my girls are having a mid-morning snack and watching some TV. I like for them to see me exercising not only because they like to join in, but also because I want to show the importance of daily exercise!
