I sunk into a depression and felt so lost in life. I felt like I was failing myself and all of the people that come to me for help as well. Starting over was something I had to do and I had to take it seriously this time.
I realized I couldn't look at fitness and eat healthy for just appearance/vain reasons. I had to do it because it was good for my body and I owed it to myself to love my body.
I've been going through a crazy journey and the process has been overwhelming, in a good way. Here is my week 1 update for my 21 Day Fix Extreme.
Week 1 Update
Week 1 was a little difficult at first, but I wanted to change my life so bad that it made the cravings not even worth to go through. I followed the plan and ate strictly clean foods. I felt absolutely amazing and my energy levels were quickly increasing. My confidence was coming back and I slowly started to care more about just eating healthy because it was good for my body.
I stopped checking the weight scale and I plan on never checking the weight scale again. I've decided that I don't want a scale to determine whether or not I am succeeding in life. I'm never happy with the number even when I should be, so why check? I've decided to track my measurements instead, and I might check it when the 21 days are over with. I'm not sure if I want to or not because as with the scale, I don't want the inches to determine how well I've done.

I'm currently on Week 2, and this has become second nature. It's so easy to eat healthy now and I look forward to my smoothies and green juices every day. I look forward to my grilled chicken meal with vegetables. I make sure to make meals that are delicious and filling. My energy levels are so high that I no longer need a nap throughout the day and I'm rarely dozing off.
This program has changed my life. I've done Beachbody programs before, a ton of them actually, but this one has really stuck with me. I look forward to waking up everyday and challenging myself once again. My strength inside and out is amazing and I've never been so motivated.
I plan on posting my results on Day 22 after my program has ended. I plan on starting my second round a day after. I want to give myself 1-day break. You might be thinking I should give myself more of a break, but I'm so addicted to the workouts and 30 minutes a day is such a short time.
Have you ever done any of Beachbody programs? Which ones have you done and what was your experience like?
