We’ve reached week 3, the final week of the 21 Day Fix! Woohoo! I’d love to tell you that I’ve been sticking with the meal plans exactly as I laid them out but that would be a total lie. Continue reading “Weekly Menu 1/22/17”
Fitness is always on the top of many New Year’s Resolution lists. In order to keep my fitness goals I started planning out my fitness programs for the year (See my 2016 Plan). Staying healthy requires having a plan. I don’t really enjoy working out so having a plan and a program to follow helps me stay on track and stay motivated.

Life before Beachbody
For many years I was a member of a gym, like ever since high school. And while I’ve always known the importance of exercising and staying fit, going to the gym wasn’t something I particularly enjoyed doing.
As a wife and now mom there are just so many other things (laundry, meal planning, grocery shopping, etc.) that need to get done. My husband on the other hand could spend hours at the gym. He loves to workout. Our approaches to the gym were very different. I wanted to get in and out as quickly as possible.

I’ve mentioned before that working out isn’t my favorite thing, but I know it’s important to maintain my health. I used to go to the gym to workout but after B was born I started doing Beachbody programs (check out my reviews for 21 Day Fix, T25, Brazil Butt Lift, 10-Minute Trainer, Cize, and BodyBeast). They work great for me because I like to have a plan to follow instead of wandering around the gym trying to decide which machine I want to do or which muscle group I should workout. I also like being able to wake up, push play and get my workout done first thing in the morning without even thinking.
I recently completed the 21 Day Fix and LOVED it! I’ve done other Beachbody workouts (P90X, Insanity, Brazil Butt Lift, 10-minute Trainer, and T-25) and this is one that I’d been wanting to try for awhile and finally just got it done.
