So I gave in and signed up to try Shakeology and Beachbody Fitness! I had a little extra money, there's a 30 days money back guarantee, and I can cancel at any time....I figured why not!?
The beginning was rough. I signed up for it a little over a week ago and just got the shake yesterday. But during this past week I went thru all kinds of emotions....
Is this going to be another failed attempt?
What is going to be different this time?
Will this money I just spent be worth it?
How is this drink going to be different from any other protein drink?/
I felt the whole range of emotions from happiness
It just may work this time!
I can't believe I have let myself gain back all this weight again. to fearful
I don't want to fail AGAIN.
But yesterday....I started!
As much as I didn't want to, I got up and moved. It started with a walk around the neighborhood.
I've always liked walking. It is my quiet time in which I can turn inward and reflect on any emotions I'm feeling. I like to connect with nature as I walk as well. After this walk, I was in a more open frame of mind and decided to sign onto Beachbody Fitness to find a workout for the day. Lately I have been a bit anxious about the change at work coming up in August (I'm a teacher and am moving from teaching Math/Science to ELA. I do not have experience in teaching ELA so it is all new to me.) and have been looking for ways to calm my mind. I found a program on Beachbody called 3 Weeks Yoga Retreat and I thought I'd give it a try.
The first workout was amazing! It took me thru each yoga move/pose with lots of cuing so I was confident that I was performing it correctly. After the workout, I was sweaty and weak which made me feel good knowing that I worked out my body so hard. Later that evening, my fiancee and I tried the Shakeology and it was yummy! I got the cafe latte flavor and it tastes just like an iced coffee!
Today I got up and did the second workout in the series and it was wonderful! Today's workout focused on stretching and I was so grateful it did! I am so sore from yesterday's workout that I needed a slower pace today.
With all this said, I am super stoked for the future! I'm really loving this yoga workout which keeps me excited for the next day's workout and I'm curious to see if this health supplement shake will help curve my sweet cravings while also giving my body vitamins and nutrients that I don't get through my meals.
I'm posting a Day 1 photo below to record the progress I will be making!
