Here’s a pic of the church wrap…
I have been thinking a bunch about what’s on for Monday, when these 21 days are over. I plan to do Body Beast again, but the Huge Beast program instead of the Lean Beast I did last time. I really enjoyed the heavy lifting, and I want to get back to it. I felt super strong! The difference in the two plans is that the Lean Beast has a metabolic component to also shed fat. Both end with a cutting phase, so it’s really in the earlier phases where you’re building up. I do have fat to lose, but right now, I think I want to focus on building muscle.
Now, this is a huge mindshift from the 21 Day Fix Extreme, which is focused on getting smaller. I’m having a little trouble getting my mind around the additional calories, but I know that the process is that way for a reason! I still plan to follow the 21 Day Fix eating plan for the most part.
Why am I telling you this today? I noticed something this morning. Though I haven’t had chocolate/wine/other treats in now 17 days, I don’t feel like I want to go get crazy Monday. I may have some treats (I got a small box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day and I will have some eventually), but I’m really good with sticking to plan. It hasn’t felt like deprivation at all. That is a big change for me. I usually am thinking of the next big eating day or next cheat meal and what I’ll have! I’m not thinking about that at all. I’m focused on the adding of more fruits, protein and healthy fats more than having chocolate! Feeling good is an amazing motivator…along with seeing results! I’m excited to keep up these habits.
What are you excited about today?
