"Man oh man! The 21 day fix extreme...where do I even begin??
To say that one small box delivered to my door changed my life would be the biggest understatement of the century.
I began the program about 2.5 months after the birth of my first child. I was an overweight new mom with a demanding newborn that consumed all my time. I ate junk all day long and lived like a hermit, getting little to no exercise.
After a harsh reality check, I found myself in desperate need of a health and fitness routine that would fit into my lifestyle. Basically, I needed a fast, convenient, effective workout that I could do while keeping my newborn within eyesight. A friend of mine recommended I try the 21 day fix extreme. 30 minute workouts that I could do from home, paired with a kick ass nutrition plan that took the guess work out of meal planning. Sounded easy enough right?
Almost too perfect if you ask me. So I decided to give it a go. I started the program March 1st of this year and have never looked back. In just the first 21 days I had lost a little over 7.5 pounds and 3% body fat.
My confidence was slowly beginning to surface again and my energy levels were higher than ever! I was eating better than I ever had before, and the happiness that came with it noticeably filled my everyday life. I was beginning to notice myself not only becoming a better mom, but a better wife and friend because of it.
To some this may sound dramatic, but that's because it is. The dramatic changes that came about from this one decision ultimately have shaped me into the person I am today: A confident person that lives everyday with passion and purpose instead of excuse and regret.
After completing the first 21 days I went on to do round 2, and am now currently doing 22 minute hard corps. My fitness journey is just getting started and I can't wait to see all the places it takes me. My experience has been the farthest thing from easy, but it is by far the best thing I've ever done for myself."
