Official Week 1 Results From Our Test Group!
So we officially wrapped up week 1 of the 21 Day Fix and here are the numbers so far!
Week one of 21 Day Fix was an exciting and interesting one. To begin, I had to figure out what foods from the list I liked well enough to eat the right portions of. That part wasn’t too bad. The worst part was getting on schedule to eat all the food. The containers seem small, but it is a lot of food. I managed to stick with the right foods, but a couple of days I did not eat it all. I guess I ran out the time and didn’t want to eat too late.
As far as the workouts, I can say they were not easy. None of them. Right now I can’t say that I have a favorite because they all are good. But my least favorite and the one I struggled with the most was Yoga Fix. I’m really not a Yoga person.
After week 1, I lost 6lbs and 2 3/4 ins. I am a little disappointed in the inches category because I wanted to lose more, but hopefully it will show after week 2 because I will work even harder. What I like most and what would be my selling point is being able to control your food portions. That has always been a struggle for me. I really enjoy this program and I am already looking forward to my second round.
AFTER 1 WEEK: weight: 155.4 lns; 27.2%fat, 54.4%water; Arms R&L: 12″ Thighs: 25.5″ Hips: 40″ waist: 32″
Regardless, I feel soooo much better, even noticing my pant fitting better! I am happier though today, since I can still feel some of the soreness from the workouts as well as I can breath better! My sides are still a little sore from the Dirty 30 side weight lifts.
RESULTS: weight change: lost 6.2 lbs, Arms: lost 1″ each, Thighs: lost .5″ each, Hips & waist -I need to re-measure to make sure I’m doing it right.
LOVE the FB group!! Keeps me motivated and accountable! Plus great to see what others come up with for creating meals and how they handle to day to day social settings for going out to eat!!
One week down, and I’ve already lost 6 lbs! I can’t believe the results that I’m seeing after only one week. The workouts are not too difficult but boy do they make you sweat in only 30 minutes a day! I feel young. I feel fresh. I feel like a new person. I’ve struggled a little with the portion control though, especially over the weekend. It’s hard when you’re going out with friends, but I came through! I’m glad this program color-codes your meals for you, it makes it much easier to follow. Who knew a slight change to my eating habits would make such a difference? Looking forward to week 2!
After week one of the 21 Day Fix I am shocked at the results I am getting. I have currently lost 2 lbs. but I noticed by day 2 my stomach was less bloated than it normally is. My stomach felt really flat by Saturday and I decided to measure around my waist and hips and I was amazed just in 6 days that I had already lost 3 inches off my waist and 2 inches off my hips. Before that, I was starting to get a little discouraged because the scales stayed the same for 4 days. I realized that you don’t have to always go by the scales and that even though the scales may not be moving you are still making progress in inches.
As far as the food goes by, day 3 it was pretty easy to keep up with how many containers I had for the day. I start my day off with Shakeology mixed with ice water and an orange container of ground flax seed. I eat my purple container with fruit at breakfast also. I’m allowed 1 orange container so I get that out of the way in the morning. Shakeology is considered a protein which is the red container. I usually eat the purple container filled with blackberries, strawberries or cut up apples. That normally holds me until about 10:30 am and then I will have a snack which consist of fresh carrots or cucumbers which is the green container for vegetables. I fill the blue container with hummus and eat the veggies with the hummus. At lunch time I do 2 more proteins (red) a green if I did not do it for a snack and my carbs which are 2 yellow containers for me. As an afternoon snack I will have my last serving of fruit. All that is left for the evening is 1 more protein (red) and 2 more veggies (green). I will have the teaspoons thoughout the day when I get a little hungry which consist of natural peanut butter.
I have had fun with the water because I fill up 2 bottles (33oz each) of filtered water in the morning and I use the same cup and refill it from the bigger bottles. I have enjoyed my water with mint, lemons and limes and tangerine and mint. It has made drinking that much water more enjoyable.
I realized before doing the 21 Day Fix that I ate decent but I don’t think I ate ENOUGH of the food that was good for me. I have always had a sweet tooth and my excuse was “oh, I can eat that because I just worked out for an hour”. So I was spinning my wheels and was not seeing any progress. As far as my sweet tooth goes while doing the Fix a couple of times this past week I have had a quarter size amount of semi-sweet chocolate chips, that’s it. It is enough to hit the spot. I’m so committed to this program and I really don’t want to cheat.
As far as the workouts go they are great. I feel it in my abs after every workout. It is hard enough for someone who is used to working out but with the modifier in the workouts it makes it easier if this is a beginner program for you. So far so good. Excited what the end of week 2 will bring.
