Oh how true that is!!!! It is really all in the mind! the decision to say I am doing this! When I saw that Carl ( the CEO of Beachbody) was challenging people to take the 21 day fix extreme challenge and enter to be in the infomercial, I was like no not me. Then as I got to thinking I thought why not me? Who knows if I will end up in that commercial or not, but if I don't try I'll never know. So, with the acceptance of that challenge each time I feel temptation run though me I think no, I am part of the test group and I need to be all in! I want to show people what can happen if you actually follow the meal plan the way it is designed.
And that is what I have done. Some very hard moments for me on day 2 and 3 centered around not eating those mommy bites. I have a 6 and 4 year old so while they can get away with eating PB&J I can not! I literally had to throw the crust away and not finish their plate. Because I am having to talk myself though these kinds of things makes me realize how much I was doing it before and holding myself back because those bites add up to sometimes hundreds.
When I look at this before and after picture I remember where I was in my life and how I felt. I sometimes have a hard time believing that was me. even though I hardly recognize that Lisa what I do remember and will always remember is how I FELT when that was me. THAT will never go away. I know what I am fighting for, I am fighting to be the best me that I can be. The happiest me for myself, my family and for those I hope to inspire. This fitness journey had become so much more than just about me and how I look it is about changing lives! Lives that my not have been changed had I not shared my story.
I am ready for my next transformation and am so happy that I have been 4 days with not a single bite of something that I am not supposed to have and you know what it feels amazing to set a goal and actually do it! I used to be the queen at starting and stopping and giving up. Not this time! I am on a mission and I am excited for the outcome.
now......lets get day 4 under my belt! I know this 21 days will not be easy. even just making sure I get my workout in each Saturday and Sunday will be different I have been working out M-F. I just keep telling myself it is only 21 days!
