I cannot believe I only have 8 days left in this program. It has gone by so darn fast, and it’s hard to believe. You can definitely stick with a 30 day program fairly easily without getting bored because it just goes by really fast and I’m not sure I’ve ever gotten used to it since its constantly changing.
I did the MMA Plyo workout for the first time on Thursday which has the most complex movements and is about 50 minutes long. I honestly didn’t think I was going to ever make it to the end and was incredibly sore the next stay so I was dreading doing it again this morning (with the addition of Core Kinetics), but it honestly wasn’t as bad as the first time and I even felt a little more confident with the movements. So, I’ll say that is definitely progress. I’ve also gotten so much stronger and can tell by my push ups. There are a ton of push ups in the dynamic strength workout and I can do them all now without having to break down to my knees, which was not the case when I started 3 short weeks ago.
On another note I didn’t really think I had much more to lose scale wise but when I got on the scale at the end of this past week I looked down to see that I now (at 30 years old) weigh the same as I did when I was a senior in high school. Can you believe that? I got on and off the scale about six times just to be sure I wasn’t just off center or it was a fluke, but the number remained. I am mostly surprised by this because
1. it’s the middle of the holiday season
2. my diet has been decent but not as good as it could have been (hello wine and I think there was some cheesecake……and maybe some cookies) being that we’ve had like 8 different holiday parties
3. I ate out twice last week and not like a healthy eat out I mean like Mexican and Asian food.
So I was definitely not thinking I would have lost weight during this time period but I did. Honestly I think the reason is have become much more aware of portion sizes and what my body needs to be satisfied and not stuffed. I believe this is the mindset and awareness that has helped me the most throughout this whole process. I am very thankful for the portioning containers I got with my very first program (21 day fix) because it showed me how much I was over eating, and not even realizing it. Anyways I think that has been my biggest realization over the past week. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and enjoy some time off to spend with the ones you love.
