Exactly 26 days ago, I sat in my living room feeling really blah about myself. I was sulking. I was feeling down about my body as I sat there comparing myself to some pictures that I saw of some friends on Facebook and it totally made me feel icky. I was so happy for them and comparison just sucks the joy right out of life. Comparison is from the devil. It is certainly not from God. It is the enemy trying to make you feel less and take you to a dark place so that He can attack your mind and your heart. He was winning. I felt like less in so many ways…as a mother, as a wife, as a coach, as a friend, as a woman in general. I was picking myself apart. It was not good.
I was unhappy with my body, my habits had gotten to be terrible. I rationalized with myself about why it was okay to eat certain things and to not workout. There are soon many things. If you want the FULL break down of how I felt and why you can read my blog post about it that I will link in the comments section. I decided I wanted more self control. I wanted to get back on track. I was excited to start the 21 Day Fix Extreme. I ordered the Full program and started the 9th with my group of awesome ladies. I binged on everything in sight until I started. lol. We all did.
Everything went great for the 1st week and a half. I was even starting to see results on day 9. Then the bloating and the negativity starting creeping back in. I turned to my support group and reached out for help when I needed it for motivation. I refocused and dialed it in. I pre-prepped food and was prepared for the last week. I was determined to push through the icky feelings again and prove to myself that I could do it. I made changes to my foods that I was eating as well and upped the amount of food that I was eating.
So here I am 21 Days later and I feel AMAZING!!! I am so happy!! I made it through the sick kids, the traveling, the excuses I put on myself, and the crazy days. I worked really hard and was really regimented. I learned so much about myself and my body. I explain more about what I learned and the changes that came from me completing round one of this program in my bog post as well.
Here are my results. I took a better picture this morning BUT…Since my husband said I was not being realistic with my results since The Day 0 picture was taken at night, after I ate dinner and my after picture from today was in the am, before I ate. So I said FINE! I will retake them at the same time I took the before pictures after I eat dinner. Just to prove a point. I don’t want to lead anyone on and give false results so…Sorry it is so late but…Here they are!!! BAM!!! So proud of Myself for sticking to it.
I am going to start a 2nd round of this program again on March 9th. I feel really confident in helping other people do it with me. So if you are ready to step it up a notch and do this with me then shoot me a message right after you hit like and leave a comment. LOL. Make sure you check out my blog as well!!

Everyone responds differently and I will help you decide if this program is the right one for you to start with and what your best plan of accomplishment is for YOU!!! So lets Chat!
