3 Day Refresh coming up
Since we are at the end of week one in this round of the 21 Day Fix today, I am planning on the next two weeks and then the three days that follow.
End of Week One
Ending week one today- yes Day 7, after today’s workout we will have gotten through Day 7 of this round of 21 Day Fix.
Having switched meal plans from plan C to plan A of the vegan meal plans Autumn has set up for us I have had no real problems with the amount of food allocated to us. Dividing it up can be better next week a bit though. Goal for meals has been set.
Workouts have been great. I feel I have been transforming my midsection- Bonus! Oh, I have been wearing a belt to avoid losing my pants!
This morning I had a weight check in……..I started at 169 pounds…..and today I was at 167.5 pounds.
Plan for week two
Since I had the last week, and kinda had extra pistachios (i.e. healthy fats). I will be taking the “extras” back down again for starters. And having a little more self control, no more “cheating”!
Sticking with and not letting the kitchen ruin my hard work is of utmost success to following the plan. Autumn actually tells you that in the Dirty 30 workout video. “Don’t let the work in the kitchen ruin things for you!”, she states.
Having to really work on my writing and my blog for the two weeks that follow. Will definitely take time away from going into the kitchen and stuffing my face and ruining my chances of a healthier life!
My sodium levels. I will be adding sodium to my meals. That is table salt or sea salt to speak of, as this can be a reason why I may have had my strokes before. In my research I found something called Cerebral Wasting Syndrome. I will have my drs order a blood test to test my sodium levels as well.
As far as my daily vitamins go, I will continue to take an aspirin a day, my Vitamin B12, vitamin C, and vitamin D3 supplements as told to do so by my nurse practioner.
During Week Two I will be getting my next shipment of my Vegan Shakeology and my order of three day refresh. My three day refresh will be in the planning stages during weeks 2 and 3 of this round of my 21 Day Fix.
My hopes for this round of 21 Day Fix are to lose several more pounds, I hope to be down to a good healthy weight with less belly fat by the end of this or the next round of my 21 Day Fix. Goals are important but one should be flexible as far as losing weight. WHY? Losing weight takes time and so it should- fast weight loss is not healthy, but losing weight slow and surely by balancing your “diet” or in my terms my “lifestyle” and your workouts- sometimes a nice daily walk with your dogs is movement enough for some people. If I can lose 2-3 pounds per week I would be happy. Following the meal plan, and doing the 21 Day workout of the day, doing a daily run, and daily doga!
My beachbody request. Yesterday I emailed beachbody to try to request working with the powers that be to come up with a workout and eating plan with them. This plan will be for people and their DOGS. Can you see people and their dogs hanging out on the beach together? Or before that working out with their dogs- whether a walk, run, doga session, pilates or pupilates session, mix in some agility. Oh I can just see the workout program coming together already. Something new for you and your canine workout partner to participate in everyday. And you know your workout partner will be ready and willing everyday. You will have options to workout inside or outside everyday too!
Ok, there are some of my weekly updates for my 21 Day Fix round.
