As you may have already read here I have started doing the Beach Body 21 day fix with Shakeology. I must say that I LOVE this program!! I have been lax a few times but for the most part I have kept to an 80-20% ratio. Which is pretty good I think.
Now that I am more familiar with the program and when and what I should be eating it has gotten much easier. Planning meals and prepping a lot of stuff ahead of time really does help me to stay on track, even on those days when I feel like I am doomed for failure.
I definitely have less pain overall and have more energy and that is a big plus in my book. My family is so supportive and they are eating just as I am eating since it is just too much work and frankly costs way too much to make separate meals.
Some things I have discovered is I am not usually hungry in the morning. I tried to drink a shake in the morning and some mornings I wasn’t hungry at all so I would get busy doing something else as I drank my coffee and then before I realize, it is noon! This is not good…because I discovered by then I am famished and I could overeat at that time. So I have started getting up and making my shake right away and I have it with my coffee and it holds me over for a few hours so I can get things done.
Another thing I discovered is I definitely have more energy, I find myself moving around quite a bit more. Soon I hope to get a desk that can convert to a standing desk so I can get my work done on my computer without sitting the whole time. They say that sitting is the new smoking so I need to not be sitting so much.
Lastly I have found that my family is liking the cleaner eats I am making. So far so good anyway. I haven’t made anything they have really hated.
I think I will pop in weekly and update how things went that week and share the recipes I put together for that week as well. I honestly feel like I am creating a lifestyle that I can live with forever, I am not deprived, I feel better, have less pain and I have more energy to do the things I want to do. What more could someone ask for?!
As always, thanks for reading and following my crazy life!!
