Working out on The Fix as a fat kid

Good. Lord. Y'all.

As you all know, the Bearded Wonder and I have been doing the 21 Day Fix (henceforth known as "The Fix").

It' a program that combines portion control, healthy eating habits, and working out. The working out part is no joke. It's only 30 minutes a day, but it's still 7 days of working out. They mix it up though, so you're not just doing pushups every.single.day. I'd probably stab my eyes out if that were the case.


We do ours Monday-Sunday in this order:

Total Body Cardio Fix
Upper Fix
Lower Fix
Pilates Fix (HOLY CRAP DID YOU GUYS KNOW PILATES IS FREAKING HARD?!)
Cardio Fix
Dirty 30
Yoga Fix (HOLY CRAP DID YOU GUYS KNOW YOGA IS ALSO FREAKING HARD?!)

There's also a 10 minute Abs Fix workout we can do to add on, or in lieu of one of the 30 minute workouts.

The workouts are all hard, but they're... doable. This whole program is making me re-evaluate the way I do things. So for working out, generally they do a workout for a minute…

1 week down, 2 to go

We've officially completed 1 week of the 21 day fix!! For those of you just tuning in, the Bearded Wonder and I started the 21 day fix program last week. It's gone pretty well so far! We've decided to weigh ourselves each Monday to keep ourselves motivated.

Drumroll please...

I've lost 8.3 lbs and Beardy's lost 10 lbs!! Woooo!!!




Suffice it to say, we're pretty freaking excited. He said he's feeling pretty good and his stomach is feeling good (TMI, but we both have intermittent tummy issues). I'm feeling faboo! I don't feel uncomfortable in my skin, my stomach feels much more settled (amazing what happens when you stop eating crap, amiright?). Also, I've noticed that I don't feel sluggish or exhausted all the time. So good. 
That's all for now! I'll update soon on the workouts- pinky promise. =)
