I finally started another round of the 21 day fix on Sunday. As you can see my shameful week of horrible eating caused a weight gain since the last weigh-in. I’m not sure why I continue to torture myself like that. I think part of it is me trying to figure out what works and how far I can push the boundaries. Yes I realize that’s a little crazy but that’s me. Needless to say I decided to attempt to finally do both the videos and walking each morning. I have to wake up super early but that doesn’t really bother me. I would rather rise early and go to bed early. Maybe it’s just me getting older. Sunday’s video was the full body cardio fix. I would never say the workout was easy but on week 3 of my first round I could feel myself improving. Because I haven’t done the videos in so long it was like I was back at the first day again. It was super tough for me. Suck it up buttercup. This is the bed I made for myself so I might as well deal with it. After the painful workout I went for a long walk. I won’t say that my body felt great but I felt great. I had accomplished something that I wasn’t sure I could. Today was the upper body fix. My lower body was aching from the previous day. I wasn’t sure how today would turn out but I was determined to stick with the plan. My upper body was like jello and my lower body was stiff. I was a complete hot mess. That didn’t stop me from pushing thru and going on another walk today. Please understand when I say walk I mean really slow motion walk. I’m by no means a power walker. I’m more of an ADD walker. I can be easily distracted by anything. Oh those leaves are so pretty and big. Wow look at that reflection in the lake. Where are clouds? Why am I walking so slow? It just keeps going. My mind and eyes are constantly entertained by my surroundings and thoughts. Once I get to the beach or a peaceful place I just stand there and take it all in. My body may ache but I’m in heaven. I’m not sure if I will be able to stay consistent with the walking and workouts but I would like to for at least a week to see if there are any differences with the scale. Fingers crossed a miracle happens. Wish me luck!
