Monday, tomorrow, is the day when I start a new program….21 Day Fix Extreme! I’m not going to lie, I am a little nervous but also really excited. I’m mostly just excited for the results lol, but I am excited for a new workout challenge and eating plan. Some of you may be wondering why I want to start a different program than Insanity Max 30, or PiYo, or any of the programs I have done in the past and here’s why….
I’m the type of person who always has to be doing something different than before. Once I complete a program, I’m on to the next and ready for a new challenge. If I complete something and am successful with it I know then that I can do it and there’s no longer a challenge for me. So picking a new program brings a new challenge to the table and I feel more motivated than if I just do a second round of the same thing.
I have fallen off the working out/eating right wagon this past week or so and I feel horrible. I hate when i fall a little behind and I know doing this program is exactly what I need to jumpstart myself again! It happens though…falling off the wagon, it happens to everyone! Even the most successful, hard-working people fall off the wagon. So if you find yourself slipping or falling of the wagon find something that you really enjoy doing, whether it’s exercising, or cooking just take that first step to getting back into it and just add one new thing every day. So if you like walking start with going for a walk every day. It does’t need to be a long walk every day, just go for a walk and walk as long or as far as you want to and feel good about. Then maybe the next day walk and drink more water than you did the day before. After that add in another healthy food choice. Maybe substitute your white bread sandwich for a whole wheat tortilla wrap. It’s those little choices that will make a big difference. And if you’re the type of person that can’t do all or nothing, this is the way to go. I am someone who has to go all in and give up everything and workout hardcore all at once. But that’s just me.
I’m excited for this new program and to share my day by day experience with you all, and of course my results! I will not really be counting days, I plan to just do this program for as many days as I can with no breaks, cheats or slip ups. I have a wedding I am going to in June so that will probably be my stopping point lol 😉
Ok here we go…who’s ready for this?!
