21 Day Fix: Week 1 Recap

21 Day Fix: Week 1 Recap

Overall Thoughts

I started this week off strong. My eating was on point plus I was knocking out the workouts easy enough. However as the weekend approach I started to cheat by missing a workout here and having an extra carb there. Despite my cheats I still managed to loose 6 pounds and 4.5 inches this week, which to me is a HUGE win for me. Especially considering I have been gaining 2 pounds a week over the past year. What I really learned this week was to have grace for myself. I had to remind myself that my end goal is to make lifestyle changes that will help me live a long healthy life. Plus, I went into this week with the intention to make a lot of changes all at once. These lifestyle changes are not going to be easy and are not going to happen over night. So for now if I am doing well most of the time and only cheating a small percent then I am really doing great and need to keep going. Finally, by cutting out dairy, corn, barley, chocolate, and gluten and eating very clean this week I can tell a huge difference in how I feel. Saturday I felt like a whole new person. My energy level is significantly up plus I feel happier. Week 1 has been a really good week for me and I look forward to see how the next 2 weeks go!!!
