Hubs and I have made 2018 the year of the ROCKIN’ BODS (we have a ways to go, but everyone should have goals, right?). We were tired of the mom and dad bods and decided it was time to do something about it.
In January we jumped on the New Year’s Resolution bandwagon and started working out. I had joined Beachbody On Demand in November and really enjoyed being able to work out in my basement when I wanted to. I found out first-thing-in-the morning worked best for me. I got up, worked out and knew I was set for the rest of the day.
After Christmas, I talked Corey into joining me. We started with 21 Day Fix and loved the 30-minute workouts. We started doing them faithfully every morning. After we’d gone through a couple rounds of 21 Day Fix, we moved up to 21 Day Fix Extreme. It pushed us a bit more, and we loved it. We were feeling stronger, eating better and seeing a difference in how our clothes fit.
In January, Beachbody released 80 Day Obsession and just like the name implies, it’s an 80-day program. Each workout is 45 to 60 minutes long so I knew it would take awhile before I could talk Corey into jumping in.
By March I had convinced him we should give it a try. He wasn’t as excited as me, but I told him if we didn’t like it, we could go back to 21 Day Fix.
Today we’re at day 45 which is the last week of phase 2 and we’re still going strong! Next week we’ll head into the final phase.
We’ve had to miss a few days because of my travel, but they’ve been few and far between. A handful of the workouts only require loops and sliders which means I can throw them in my bag when I’m on the road.
We are losing inches and pounds, but we’ve decided to hold off on any measurements until the end. We can tell we’re stronger and our clothes are fitting better which keeps us motivated and moving forward.
I’m going to share some of our favorite recipes we’ve found that fit the 21 Day Fix plan. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
