21 Day Fix: Round 2 Results

So I made it 2 rounds of the 21 Day Fix, back to back!  There were some cheats, particularly since during round one we celebrated the 4th of July, and during round two we took a brief vacation up to St. Augustine.  But I still made healthier choices on both those occasions, and while I had some other cheats on the diet, I definitely stuck to the workout plan and kept pushing myself.

And guess what?  I really saw results this time!  Last time I saw good ones but I felt like I did not look very different.  After round two, I could really tell a difference in my before and after photos.  I actually lost the same number of pounds/inches each round.  Keep on going for a peek at my results!

I really think that round one was my key to getting my mindset and habits back on track - as they say, it takes 21 days to make a habit, and that was something I could definitely tell.  It was easier to get out of bed in the mornings to work out (partly because I was less sore, but also because I was used to it).  I found it easier to do the workouts and keep up, and even keep pushing, so that part got fun.  And this time I really saw a difference in my body as well as my strength.  In this final week, I upped my light/heavy weights from 5 lbs and 8 lbs to 8 lbs and 10 lbs!  I surprised myself, actually, and can't wait to see what I can keep doing.

I kept up with the Shakeology - I'm not sure I'm ever going to give that up.  I enjoy it, it's really good for me, it helps with cravings, makes me feel great, and it's chocolate.  'Nuff said.  #shakeologyforlife

I am looking forward to my journey as a Beachbody coach, and the community of amazing people that I have found to motivate, inspire, and share with.  I really, really hope that my experience, results and desire to help you achieve your goals will inspire you to join up with me as your coach and join the 21 Day Fix challenge!!  I'm going to be participating in my coach's challenge group starting up Monday, and will start recruiting for my own groups after that.  Would love to have you - I promise it will change your game completely if you are up for it!

So as promised...results!  

I never thought I'd be one of those people who is all, I lost so many inches in so few weeks!  Or post before and after pictures of myself publicly.  Eep.  But here I am, proof positive and proud enough to do it.  Overall I lost 12 inches and 8 lbs - a full 2.5 inches from my waist and 3.5 from hips!  These photos don't even show how nicely this program has started to shape my legs too.  Autumn Calabrese totally knows what she's doing.

I would still like to keep moving forward and trim down more, but it's really exciting to see such a difference.  I know a lot of people would probably like to see miracle results in just 21 days, takes time.  I still think 6 weeks is a ridiculously short amount of time to see this much progress, I've never had these kinds of results before.  You never know until you try!
