I have never been one to post pictures of myself where I am anything but fully-clothed. It’s really out of character for me to post these before and after shots of myself but I feel it’s important for others to see what is possible when you truly commit to your health and your body.
Below is my before picture. While I never felt that I was “fat”, I wasn’t happy where I was at physically or mentally at this point in time. This was taken the day before I began my 30-day challenge.
Now here’s what I did to get the results below:
- Completed one complete round of 21-Day Fix. This included doing a 30-minute workout every day for 3 weeks, as well as following the program’s nutrition.
- I ate a lot of lean protein, vegetables, fruits and healthy grains.
- I ate popcorn and ice cream (on occasion).
- I drank wine.
So, while I call my challenge “30 days” to account for the time it takes to prep, I really achieved the results below in 21 days.
Do I have a flawless body after just 21 days? No, definitely not. True transformation takes longer than a month, but I think I’ve come pretty far in a short amount of time (enough to actually post these pictures online!) In total, I lost 10 pounds from completing the 21-Day Fix.
For now, I’m taking a break from committing to a strict program. I loved 21-day fix; I think it’s a great way to jump start a healthy lifestyle for anyone – whether you’ve never exercised before in your life or if you just fell off the wagon temporarily (like me.) While I do think I’ll pick up another Beachbody program in the future, I’m focusing on mixing up my workout for the time being.
I’m using a combination of my own workouts, group fitness classes, kickboxing and Beachbody On Demand programs to continue my fitness journey. And, yes, I’m still drinking Shakeology.
