I finally worked up enough courage to share some of my before and after pictures of my first round of the 21 Day Fix. Pictures that aren’t flattering, taken in the worst lighting, or not filtered through Instagram are a scary thing these days.
I’ll be honest, the first few days of 21 Day Fix are pretty difficult. My first workout was Lower Body. I’m not kidding when I say I couldn’t get up off the couch without using my Great Dane as a crutch. I had a headache from cutting out sugar and changing my eating habits. I was constantly hungry. My mood swings weren’t great (sorry friends & family!). I kept repeating the saying “it will get worse before it gets better” and read just about every motivational quote I could find online. Guess what… those ridiculous posts were 100% true. I started on a Monday and by Friday I felt like super woman. My body started to adjust to eating better, which led to stronger workouts and energy. It feels so incredibly good to know that I am taking care of my body, eating healthy, and I can actually feel myself getting stronger every day. I just finished bench pressing my car. ; )
The top row of pictures were taken two weeks before I started the 21 day fix. I just received my bridesmaid dress in the mail, so naturally I had to model it and take pictures to send to my mom. No alterations were needed. The bottom row of pictures were taken at the SEAMSTRESS just two weeks after I started the 21 day fix. That’s right… I needed to have the dress taken in at least 3 inches. Isn’t that crazy?! If you ever doubt your progress, simply post side by side pictures to compare. It’s a huge slap in the face (plus a pat on the back for having a slammin’ body now!).
During my first round of the fix, I lost 5 inches total and 9 lbs. I gained an appreciation for my body, a positive mindset and self confidence. Not. Too. Shabby.
High five to all you party people out there that aren’t afraid to post your #nofilter pictures. You, my friend, rock.
