Week One is Done

Week One is in the books!!! I am using this little space the next three weeks to talk about this program, the things that went well, and the things I really struggled with!!

What I love about this program is that it is exactly what the name says, its a shift! Its all about shifting your body. mind. to reach goals! You see, when you workout, its a mental game! You tell yourself one of two things: "I can't do this" or "5 more!" Its all in your head! 



This program really shifts your mind to MAKE you believe in yourself! Chris, the trainer, pushes you mentally to give it all you have! I love that the focus isn't just on your body! If you get your mindset right then you can accomplish ANYTHING! 



I also love that he goes through and explains each move in detail and ALWAYS gives you a modifier! Ill be honest, I used it every now and then! When I couldn't push myself any further I would do the modifier move and I still was a sweaty mess! 



One thing that is very unique in this program is that your meal plan changes week to week! There is a formula in your jump start guide that helps you figure out exactly what you can eat! It has you put in your gender, weight, etc and then gives you which of the 4 options you fit in. Based on that, each plan uses the color coded portion size containers and it will tell you exactly how many of each color you can eat! THE KEY is that it changes every week! 



Which sounds super complicated! But Chris makes it easy! He came up with his own recipe book for EACH week with about 20 different breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options! He even tells you how many servings each recipe makes and what containers are being used! 



AND IT GETS EASIER!! He actually gives you a grocery list!! So all you have to do is figure out the following:
1. What plan are you?
2. Go to that plans recipe guide
3. Print off the meal plan calendar
4. Print off the grocery list
BAM easyyyyyyy



After ONE week I am seeing some MAJOR changes in my body!! I have lost 2.5 inches around my stomach, 1 inch around my leg, 1 inch around my hips, and am down about 3lbs! Thats just in ONE week! 



I FEEL so much more energized! I feel full all the time and I never really have hunger pains or over eat! 

CELEBRATIONS: I have not cheated ONCE! I have passed up donuts, out to eat, bread, and we even went wine tasting with friends and I didn't have a sip!! 



Now before everyone has a cow I am TOTALLY about balance! In fact I encourage it! I think its silly to deprive yourself forever of foods and drinks! But, I want to show everyone that this can happen! You can do anything for 21 days! So I am following this to the T! And when its done you know I am going for a glazed coconut donut! 

But until then! I am going to keep at! Keep following the plan! Keep getting results :)

  6. Great job this week and great results! And CONGRATS on the no cheating! You're right, we can do anything for 21 days. It's good you get modifiers for the moves because I'm pretty sure that's what I'd be doing!
