Have you ever noticed how slowly time seems to go when you're counting days? Whether you are counting down to something exciting or you are keeping track of how many days you have done something, either way time seems to drag. Doesn't it?
I was thinking of this last night because I was getting down on myself for not being able to see results in the mirror from doing the 21 Day Fix. Then I realized...I've only been doing this for 11 days! Of course I don't see results yet!!
Realistically, anything having to do with weight loss is going to take some time before you can tell a difference in the mirror, no matter how extreme it is. Here's a quote I found on Pinterest that helps me keep things in perspective:
That seems about right, doesn't it? So although it feels like I've been eating healthy and working out for a long time, I still haven't hit that 4 week mark where I see it. I do, however, already feel some changes in my body. I can tell that my muscles are starting to come back and my flexibility is also getting better every day.
Speaking of results, what I wanted to talk to you about today is something I don't think I've mentioned yet, and that is the part about me drinking Shakeology every day. I started the same day I began using the containers and have definitely noticed a big difference in my appetite and my cravings. In case you haven't heard of it, Shakeology is basically a super food meal replacement shake that provides you all of the nutrients you're probably missing from your diet.
I will admit, I was a little skeptical about the taste of Shakeology before I got my package, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tastes. I especially love the chocolate flavor. It might sound crazy, but I actually look forward to drinking it every day because it tastes so good. The other nice part is that there are so many different ways to prepare it. Here are some of my favorites:
And there are so many more options...it's crazy! You can also order the Shakeology to come in packets, which makes it nice and easy to take with you either to work or when you're traveling. The 21 Day Fix comes with a shaker bottle (in the picture above), so you can take that with you and add water to any of the flavors for a quick and healthy meal.
So that's my update for halfway through my second week on the 21 Day Fix. I'll post another update at the 14 day week mark so you can see how I've done after a full two weeks. As always, if you have any questions please leave them in the comments below and I'll do my best to answer them!
