The results are in!

How did I do on a three week program of increasingly intense workouts πŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈand decreasing starchy carbs πŸž ?

I really do feel accomplished from completing this program. No, it wasn't my favorite but it definitely was effective! πŸŽ‰

Here's what I learned over these last few weeks:

βœ… I am capable of pushing myself harder than I have in a while.

These workouts stretched me. The cardio days were focused on agility moves which are never my favorites. There was a lot of jumping and I modified that a ton but I was still able to do more than I thought I could.It was a lot less painful on day 19 than it was on day one.

On strength days we were challenged to progress in our weights and I was able to move from using 5 and 8lb weights on day 1 to 12 and 15lb weights on day 20. If you'd ever told me I'd be lifting 12 pounds weights above my head, I would have told you that you were crazy.

βœ… 45 minute workouts at that level of intensity were tough both mentally and physically. Good thing they were only for a week!

βœ… It is possible to feel completely full and fed by eating lots of veggies and proteins and very little to no carbs.

βœ… Dialing in your nutrition is what gives you muscle definition.

βœ… While I already know this, it was reinforce over and over that it starts in our minds. Our bodies will do what our minds believe possible. Even on days I didn't start out thinking it was possible, I got into the groove eventually and started to push myself every day.

βœ… Knowing I only had to get through 3 weeks is what got me through. You can push yourself through anything if it's temporary. While I'm not stopping the workouts, I'm switching to a slightly less intense program next.

βœ… Support and encouragement are key. I had a group of ladies who were showing up every day as well, encouraging and motivating me to keep going. They shared in my pain when I was sore and celebrated my success when I proved I was stronger than I thought.

βœ… This program really did what it promised. It took me to the next level in my fitness in just 3 weeks. I really didn't believe that would happen. So, I say again....not my favorite but effective!

What did I think of the meal plan? It wasn't easy but, again, it was effective.
I wasn't perfect but I was a TON better than I would have been without committing to following the plan. I made a meal plan each week and did my best to stick to it. The first two weeks, I had a few built in "treats" just knowing what I had going on. Week 3, I tried to go 100%. I ended up about 95% which is a HUGE step for me. My only cheats were that I put honey in my greek yogurt for an extra protein "dessert" and then last night, the final night, I accidentally ate some carbs in the form of corn, peas and edamame in a salad and vegetable soup. Didn't realize they were carbs on my plan until it was too late. Then I had an intentional cheat with 4 chocolate covered strawberry's. I still had a fruit left for the day but the chocolate was a little treat. 

So, how do I know it worked?

Well, there are the non-scale victories I mentioned above. I'm stronger, faster and more confident.

On the scale I lost 1.5 lbs. Remember, I really wasn't trying to lose weight. I also lost 4 inches (from my waist, butt, thighs and chest) and gained a quarter of an inch on each arm.

I gained muscle definition. Eliminating those carbs and sugars eliminates the bloat and lets you see those muscles you're working so hard on underneath. πŸ’ͺ

I'd say that's pretty good for JUST 3 WEEKS. What do you think?
