I'm finished with my second 21 day fix challenge. It was actually a 30 Day Challenge called, 30 Days to a Happier You. It includes a group Facebook meet-up and a week prep. Then you do the 21 Day Fix as a group with daily check-ins. Then you have 2 days of follow-up with end results pictures. Here is more about that HERE.
I honestly felt like this Challenge was harder, not because of the challenge itself, just because of me and stuff I struggle with. You can see in this round of before and after photos, the difference is not huge.
My legs are a lot stronger and my endurance when I work out is getting better. I'm still doing really well on working out and daily hydration. I easily burn 1800+ calories every week between the treadmill and Zumba. I have to work on my abs a bit more.
I also am still battling anxiety and depression. It's not an excuse so much as it's an additional challenge when it comes to motivation. It just means I have to work harder. It's kind of like going for a hike with a backpack full of rocks. You still need to do it, it just takes more time and energy. You can read more about my struggle with depression HERE.
There are a few things that get me through:
- Remembering why I signed up for Beachboy in the first place.
- Revisiting and reading about my Motivations and Goals that I had when I first started.
- Focusing on getting out of my own head and just doing it!
- Looking at my before pictures from the beginning of September until now. There is a difference in just 2 months! I can see and feel it! (and yes…I do know that I'm not photogenic!)
So where to next? Well next week these is a 5 Day Sugar Purge that is perfect for after halloween. I'll post more on that tomorrow.
My next 30 Day Challenge starts the week after that. I will post more about that as well in case anyone wants to join me.
