Ok, so it's no secret that I've been struggling lately. I have lacked consistency. I have not been eating well and I didn't seem to be able to dig myself out of the spiral that was leading to slow and terrifying weight gain.
Last week I recommitted. I want to live a consistent healthy lifestyle. I want to lose the last of my weight. I want to be fit and healthy, and feel good.
I started it off with a Shakeology Cleanse. I did it over the weekend, and I'm so glad I did. I've never done a cleanse of any kind before, so it was all very new to me. If you've never heard of this cleanse, it's basically 3 Shakeology servings, plus 2 servings of fruit at various times thorough the day, plus one healthy meal like a salad with lean protein.
I modified a bit. I was working all night Friday night, so I cheated a tiny bit and had coffee. Instead of having a salad, I had squash, broccoli and chicken.
Overall I felt really good. I wasn't starving and I seemed to have plenty to eat. I did my a couple of PiYo workouts and went to hockey as well. I seemed to have lots of energy and felt fine.
The result of my 3 days of discipline was a 4.8 pound loss. I'm really happy with that, now I'm just trying to stay on the 21 Day Fix meal plan and keep losing.
I started the cleanse out at 168.8 and I was down to 164 on Monday morning. My normal weigh in is Tuesday morning, and I was 164.4.
At the same time I recommitted to my eating plan, I committed to finishing PiYo. I'm currently on day 6, and going strong. I know I'll mess up and it won't be perfect but I'm going to get it done!
So why am I so excited? If you don't follow my Facebook, you won't know, but I got my invite off of the waitlist for the 2015 Beachbody Success Club Cruise! I found a friend to go with and I've put down the deposit, and booked flights! It's happening!! THAT'S why I'm excited!
I don't think there could be a much bigger motivator to get the last bit of weight off than the chance of meeting the people who create the videos I work out to. I really hope I can meet Chalene Johnson! She's my soulmate trainer. I LOVE her!
So! Don't forget to link up! Can't wait to read about everyone's progress!
