Ok it has been 14 days sense I started this journey. I am so happy I did! I cannot tell you how surreal it is to hear me say that none the less actually put it in to writing. I genuinely hate working out. It is the last thing I ever want to do. I am the type of person that is a true convenience whore. I will pay for VIP seating and valet parking. It drives my husband absolutely insane, but it truly is who I am at heart. I am all about the fast and easy as long as in my mind it is still efficient. VIP Seating means I can still wear my killer cute heels and be comfortable and valet means I will stay dry and safe while leaving an event. Anyway...I digress. Working out is the one place where there is not a more convenient way to do it. You just have to do the work, period.
However, I did find convenience in the #21DayFix. Although the workouts are intense, I like to know I can work really hard for a short time and get a big impact.
As you know week was had it's challenges for me. If you don't know check out the details. However, I can say overall week two was much less stressful for me. Mentally I was better prepared for what to expect. However, I had to fight the urge to become complacent. I had to tell myself, just because you've worked out today doesn't mean you can have the cookie or that beer. It is like me seeing the results gave me an excuse to backslide. I struggled with food cravings and really had to gather up willpower. Week 1 was more about the challenge to just get started and push through the urge to quit, where as Week 2 for me was about fighting the urge to compromise.
Week 2: Food Epic Fail
I am so glad that I was able to fight the urge for the most part. I will not lie to you. I totally had a moment of weakness where I let my excuses get the better of me. This weekend my daughter danced in the local parade for our town festival. You know what festivals bring, deep fried this or that, but my all time favorite is the Philly Steak & Cheese Fries. I rationalized it like this, "it is a family tradition, it only comes once a year"... bluh, bluh, bluh! I ate it and felt sick to my stomach. However, to mentally redeem myself I did an extra workout and told myself all the walking I did around the fair would help.
Week 2: 21dayfix Results
On Sunday I weighed in and I was astonished by the results. I lost 4.6 lbs the second week. That means I've lost a total of 7.2 lbs in 2 weeks and a grand total of 17.5 inches. I use the 21 Day Fix app to track my progress. Let me know if you have any questions about how & wear I measure myself for consistency.
