I started out at home with Jillian Michaels 30 day shred and Killer Abs which are both great workouts and I still do them time to time but they just weren’t my “IT” workout. I didn’t see much of a weight difference. A lot of that was because of diet. I wanted to eat healthy but had no clue where to start.
Shortly after I came into my fitness journey I met the wonderful (let not forget gorgeous inside and out) Melissa McAllister on Facebook. I had stocked her instagram for months because she shares the most amazing workout videos that she does all on her own. I finally got brave enough to message her and ask her a few questions and when she told me about the 21 Day fix it just felt right! So there I was at the beginning of a whole new story.
The 21 day fix isn’t just amazing workouts. It also teaches you about what to eat and portion control. It was exactly what I needed. It got me on the right track of my fitness journey.
You all saw my awesome results with the first round of 21 day fix. Well I tried to start again but was wearing myself out. I had a lot going on plus I was running nearly everyday pushing my two kids in a jogging stroller so I just kind of stopped the 21 day fix and did my own workouts focusing on my core and ate really healthy.
The Monday after mothers day My sister in law started The 21 day fix with me again and we are going strong!! Once again I’m see AMAZING results and loving every bit of it.
Now some of you may be curious what my diet is like. Well I’ve been super strict the past two weeks and stuck to lean white protein meats, veggies, fruit and quinoa. Yup very simple but I keep it interesting by changing up my recipes. I really believe diet has played the biggest role in my weight loss and I will continue to keep it up. I’m not saying I won’t ever have a cheat meal but I will do it in moderation and not let it take over my body like I have in the past. I love my body that I have worked hard for… not just for the looks but for my health. It has been a very long time since I have felt like I’ve had so much extra energy.
If you are looking for some inspiring motivation find @melissamade on instagram and follow her. She has been such an inspiration to me and I’m so thankful I met her. Her encouragement changed my life!
Well it’s almost “WOMAN CRUSH WEDNESDAY” so I’ll wrap it up with a good night everybody!
P.S. I’m pretty proud of my arms and back muscles too so I’ll share some pictures with you. (:
