I wanted to check in again now that I've officially completed one full week of the 21 Day Fix. It might seem like that's all I'm posting about lately because it's honestly a big focus in my life right now. I have spent way too much of my life being unhappy and unhealthy, so now is the time that I'm dedicating to making a better life for myself.
Hopefully my posts are helpful to you if you're thinking of starting a new fitness program, whether or not it's the 21 Day Fix. My goal is to show you what someone can accomplish when they set their mind to it so that this can be an inspiration to anyone who doubts their abilities to change their life.
Today I'd like to focus on the workouts for the program. They are all 30 minutes long and you do a different one each day of the week. The materials that come with the program explain that the exercises have been scheduled in a specific way so that they are the most effective in changing your body, so they urge you to follow the schedule instead of choosing randomly based on what you feel like doing each day.
Here is the schedule of workouts and their description:
You also get 10 Minute Fix for Abs that you can add on at any time. This can also be used in the third week when you have the option to do double workouts in order to get even greater results.
All together the workouts are challenging, but not to the point where you can't get through them. Most of them focus on 60 second intervals and as Autumn, the trainer, says, "you can do anything for 60 seconds!" Personally, I'm so out of shape at the moment that I have to use the modifier on almost all the moves. I like that they give this option so that the workouts truly are for all fitness levels.
I made the mistake of not doing the workout on Friday because I had a busy day and didn't think I had time for it. I also wanted a little break, but ultimately it backfired because then I had a rough weekend and didn't workout on Saturday or Sunday either. For me, I always re-start on Mondays, so I knew I would be back at it today. I wish I hadn't missed those three days, but I'm trying not to be too hard on myself and just remember in the future that a one day break could snowball into much more.
I hope this was a helpful glimpse of what workouts you can expect if you do start the 21 Day Fix. If you're on the program, let me know in the comments which workout is your favorite one!
