On Sunday, January 22nd, I completed the 21 Day Fix!
It was ridiculously hard for me to stay focused, and at the beginning of week 3, I had no interest in pushing play for another workout. However, I did push play each day and complete the program.
Thoughts on Container Eating:
I liked having the containers to measure out an appropriate serving size, and really felt that I learned a lot about what my body needs. Since I shop primarily at a bulk grocery store, I found that I got bored with the options I had in my fridge. I think next time I would shop at a regular store and buy smaller quantities.
Will I continue container eating?
I’d like to continue container portioning my meals for the next few months so that I can really understand visually what my plate should look like.
Thoughts on the workouts.
The workouts were fine until week three, by week three I just was so bored. I also got stronger than my weights so I had to switch the the bands and really struggled to use them – that is probably because i’ve never used them before and need more practice.
Will I do another round of the 21 day fix?
Not right away.
I have the #miamifamous half marathon on Sunday, and after that I am going to start up a round of PIYO.
Thoughts on Results.
I was not surprised that I only lost a couple of pounds, we had something like 6 birthday parties and a wedding on our schedule during the month of January and I would be lying if I said I didn’t have a treat.
I was proud that I did the daily workouts, and when I was in my own home I ate fully on the plan.
If you had so many birthdays and a wedding, why wouldn’t you wait and start in February?
Life is always going to have celebrations so why keep waiting for the “perfect” month?
Would you recommend this program?
Yes. I think it’s a great program for someone who wants to learn the basics of nutrition and portion sizes.
