Thank you, Autum Calabrese! The 21-Day Fix is legit!
I’m proof that just about anyone can do the workouts and I had a good first week even with the modified moves and schedule! You know by now that I have to modify any program I’m on thanks to the crumbling spine. I cannot (but can) belive I still had a successful week as far as weight and inch loss.
I made sure I ate my reds, greens,and blues every day without fail. Greens went into my smoothies along with fruit – even cabbage and broccoli. I ate Soy Curls, tofu, beans, hemp seeds, and Gardein. I counted oranges and teaspoons with nuts, nut butter, flax seeds and touches of oil in salads, oatmeal, and on bread. (Note: Sherrie needs garlic bread with pasta!) Starchy yellows included bread, rice, and oats. When I ate Gardein as protein, I ate half to three-quarter sized yellows. When I used beans as protein, I measured them in yellow containers and added more green to my meal. My blues included homemade hemp and coconut milks. I didn’t cheat last week. I also didn’t eat on schedule thanks to a couple of crazy days.
For training, I alternated Upper, Lower, Total Body, and Cardio Fix with PIlates Fix and Yoga Fix to aid in my recovery. I had a bad day on Thursday, so I did two short sessions with Tony Horton and a short walk. Ten Minute Trainer is a great one for people short on time.
My results? 1 pound down and lost inches in my waist and hips. Yes, inches plural. I lost two inches off my waist and one off my hips. I’ll take it! I don’t usually care that much about the scale, but weighed in to prove that modification still yields results.
I cannot wait to see what the next two weeks brings! I’m checking out Team Beachbody Club and Beachbody on Demand and will substitute a workout from 21-Day Fix Extreme, Focus T-25, P90X, P90X2, P90X3, Insanity, Asylum, RevAbs, Turbo Fire, or any of the other streaming workouts available on BOD. If you like mixing it up or want to try a program before you buy, BOD rocks!
Here’s to another week of eating clean and training. It doesn’t matter how you train – be consistent and go as hard as you can. If you want to join me, just give me a shout. I’ve got your back.
