Week 1 of 21 Day Fix is done and I am pretty happy with how I did. I wasn't perfect, but I worked out 5 days of the week only strayed from my meal plan on the weekend. Like I said - NOT PERFECT - but not horrible! Plus I feel so much better! I had a cough for about 3 weeks after finishing Reach the Beach and within a few days of eating right, working out and drinking Shakeology is was almost gone. Finally!
So I have done this program before, but always stray away before the 3 weeks is up. I suspect this usually happens after the weekend, where my schedule isn't as tight as during the work week, I go out to eat and my weekly meal plan and prep is running out. It's definitely easy to quit after your weekend is a few days in a row of less than perfect.
I committed to finishing this program so I am not about to quit now! Instead I am accepting my days where I wasn't 100% going according to the plan and am moving forward. That's the way you will be successful in making fitness and eating well part of your LIFESTYLE. Don't guilt yourself for the times when you aren't perfect. Start each day fresh with the intention of fueling your body right and getting moving or resting if you need it. Listen to your body! If you need a rest day and you have a scheduled workout, take the rest day. You don't need to injure yourself if you really know that you need that recovery time.
Everyone in my accountability group is doing awesome! This is my favorite NSV (non-scale victory) from this week:
She has been working hard and has done 21 Day Fix a handful of times in a row and is seeing MAJOR changes! I'm so proud!

Hi, I'm Jessie!
I live in NH with my husband and our pups. My favorite things are coaching Girls on the Run, eating good food that I didn't have to cook, helping other people work on their health, volunteering for and running races, watching tv, doing yoga, and spending too much time on social media. #Balance
