21 Day Fix Extreme

21 Day Fix Extreme - Week 2

Monday, July 13, 2015

Do you know what today is?  It's our anniversary!  I have officially been married to the most amazing man for 13 years today.  Yes, there were a couple hard years there (I had a bit of growing up to do in my very early 20s), but I wouldn't trade his arms and his smile for ANYTHING in this world!  I mean, seriously, look at my family:

Is that not the most adorable picture you've ever seen??  That is my world, summed up in a single moment of time.   

Ok, ok, but you're probably wondering what this has to do with my second week of 21 Day Fix Extreme, right?  Well, it has 2 things to do with it.
  1. This man of very few words - and even fewer compliments - told me he thought I was getting smaller.  *swoon*  Finally!  He noticed something!  Woohoo!
  2. Getting back to nutrition, this weekend was awful!  The fitness component?  It definitely happened with some extra thrown in, but my nutrition was absolutely atrocious.  We went away for a little getaway, and we didn't eat well at ANY restaurant.  And our restaurant choices were not so stellar to begin with.  So, yeah, there's that...
As far as the workouts, good news!  The soreness did NOT last all week!  Now, don't get me wrong, I was still sore after almost every workout.  But the soreness only lasted a day (or two after lower fix extreme).  Now THAT is proof that I'm getting stronger!  And I lasted longer on almost every interval!  Yes, there were still some I could not complete, and, yes, I was still talking back to Autumn almost every day, but there was VAST improvement!  And if you couldn't tell from all the exclamation points, I'm pretty excited about that!  I'm also starting to get excited about next Monday when I see my final results!

Since I am having such a hard time with nutrition this time around, I think it's time to bite the bullet and tackle the 3 Day Refresh again.  I really need something to "shock" my system into craving healthy foods again, you know?  Let's just hope it's a better experience than last time!
