We are almost finished with our second week of the second 30-day fitness challenge that I joined. I am still doing it with my sister-in-law, but a few other different ladies. Mom even joined this one! Wahoo! Nothing like a family effort, eh?
You may remember the first 30-day fitness challenge that I was a part of. It was a group challenge through Beachbody, and online with others. It was mid-October through mid-November. I was pretty happy with the results during that challenge. I did P90X as my workout, and subtituted one Shakeology drink for a meal each day. I used the Vanilla flavored Shakeology so that I could try all different things mixed in. My shakes were typically for breakfast, I never was good at making sure I ate breakfast in the morning, and I sometimes had one after my workout at night so I wasn’t snacking on other items. I had a few go-to shakes that I made, and boy were they delicious!
One of my absolute favorite mixes has been 1 scoop of Shakeology, mandarin oranges, pineapple, peanut butter, a little skim milk, and ice. It was such a fresh and light shake! Yum!
Lately, another favorite has been 1 scoop of Shakeology, skim milk, a bit of Coffee-mate’s Peppermint Mocha, and ice. It makes a delicious holiday drink, and is almost as substitute for my Caribou Coffee drinks that I am trying so hard to give up! The definitely do help to curb the cravings though!
As far as the workouts and fitness portion of the challenge, I worked out about 4-5 days a week, and lost a total of 11 inches! Needless to say, clothes are fitting better, I’m getting a bit more toned, and just all around feeling better! It has even been nice to have family say they are able to notice that I’ve toned up. My family is a hugging family, and Dad even said one weekend, “Hey, there’s less for me to hug!” That may sound weird to others, but I was happy to hear it!
Stay tuned for the next few weeks and I will update how this second challenge has been!
