So I decided to do this post because I really want to tell you all about this great new program called the 21 day fix by beachbody! I just started it myself and so far I am amazed with the results, so far I have lost 5 pounds in 10 days. Yes I am serious! What’s crazy is…the amount of food I am eating, I mean..I am never hungry and I was shocked when I got on the scale and saw I was 5 pounds down already, um..score!! My favorite weight loss system I have ever done! I am loving the container system and the half hour amazing workouts are fabulous, super quick and easy to follow. The results are amazing and I will post a couple results of real girls who have lost weight and got in amazing shape using this program at the end of the post! I recently decided to become a beachbody coach after seeing friends have amazing results with the program. One friend lost 11.5 pounds in the 21 days and another friend lost 10 pounds. Yayy! I mean, how cool is that? Another passion of mine is Shakeology by beach body and the reason I decided to become a coach with the company. So, I lost my baby weight (my daughter is 1 and 1/2 now) of about 55 pounds in about 15 months drinking their yummy chocolate shakes, see below for my shakeology weight loss, I replaced one meal a day of their chocolate shakes and then watched what I ate and did cardio and yoga 3/4 times a week! I still drink them today and this is what brought me to the company and now I am also excited about the 21 day fix. I am drinking my Shakeology on the program and most days I will replace a meal with a shake, or have a shake as my snack. Yum! Anyhow, on to the 21 day fix and why you have to do it with me and join my challenge group for your wedding (insert huge smiley face here!!)!!! See below for Challenge groups I am always hosting for free and again I am not a beachbody coach, but I do still offer a great private (as in none of your friends can see posts on Facebook timeline) free support page!

Ok, so What is this 21 Day Fix thing?
21 Day Fix is a nutrition and fitness program that makes losing weight so simple, anyone can do it. Easy-to-follow portion control and 30-minute workouts take the guesswork out of losing weight to help you see results fast—up to 15 pounds in just 21 days! Whether you want to lose a few pounds before your next vacation or jump-start a bigger weight-loss goal, 21 Day Fix is the program for you. It’s simple, it’s fast, and it works. If you’re ready to get serious, 21 Day Fix can help you lose the weight. A wedding day is the perfect start to this program because you are more motivated than ever to look fabulous for your upcoming special day! Not to mention your honeymoon…if you plan to be going somewhere bikini friendly! eek!
Ok, so why is the 21 Day Fix so effective?
Because it’s so simple! You don’t have to count calories, points, or log your food into diet software. With 21 Day Fix, everything is laid out for you. All you have to do is use the specially designed portion-control containers (they are so darn cute!!), pick your choice of food from a very long list of the different categories of approved foods (carbs, veggies, etc.) and then do one 30-minute workout per day. that’s it! Commit to it for 21 days, and you’re going to love your results. I am in my first week and will for sure be posting my results as well..keep watching this page or check out my website here! I will be starting a fitness blog as well so I will make an announcement when this is launched and be sure to give you that info once I have it for you!
What makes the 21 Day Fix unique?
It’s the only fitness and nutrition program that combines portion-control containers and world-class workouts. By placing equal emphasis on fitness and healthy portion control, 21 Day Fix can help anyone lose weight—and keep it off—in a way that’s simple and sustainable. Whether you want to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds, you can do it with this program. The amount of food is crazy, one day I was in “food coma” after a salad I kid you not! I then decided I was still full from lunch and so I ended up having one the yummy huge shakes I told you about called Shakeology for dinner with fruit and some almonds on the side It is like a creamy shake and feels like desert (only much healthier!) and very filling!
How does the 21 Day Fix work?
With the 21 Day Fix container system, you’ll learn how to create healthy portions simply and intuitively. It shows you how
to eat whatever you want, in the right amounts, so you can reach your goals fast. No guesswork, and no calorie counting! I love how it is teaching me how to eat. I am a mom of two and I run all over the place constantly and have completely lost touch with how to actually sit down for breakfast or lunch. I am either eating in a rush, having a meal replacement bar in the car…or when I do get to prepare myself something…I am eating standing up in my kitchen while I take care of my kid’s needs! Ugh. It gets crazy! So, this is really a great learning experience for me and I feel like I have the assistance of a real dietician who is helping me, plus I have the benefit of weight loss, win-win situation. Oh and the exercise program is fabulous and Autumn Calabrese is so easy to follow and she really makes it easy for you to get through it. I have never been an “at-home” dvd exercise person at all, I have always preferred the gym or outdoor activities like power-walks etc. Now that I have these DVDs I will be doing them for years! I love how there is a different dvd and exercise for each day (cardio, upper arms, lower, abs, Pilates (did that yesterday, ouch!) and even yoga! Lots of Variety with the 21 day fix I am telling you!
