Well, it is officially the first of July and if you’re not sweating yet, you will be soon! (and that’s before you even start working out!) The heat has arrived and the last four months of working out has paid off for me but I still have a lot to go before I’m in the best shape of my life. I’ve discovered that in order to stay on track, you need to be diligent in keeping record of what exactly it is you are eating each day and also how many calories you are burning on a daily basis.
After following various workouts with the 21 day fix program, I noticed that my diet wasn’t quite tight enough. And the only way to make sure I was being good was to write down most of the things I was eating. I realized I needed to invest in some good quality worksheets I found on Jeanie and Joan’s worksheets shop on etsy. There I was able to get tally sheets for the 21 day fix program that have helped me tremendously in keeping on track. I also found various printables too so I could print out the workouts I needed to do each day.
If you don’t log and track your results and your daily caloric intake, you’re bound to mess up and not realize how you are messing up. You need to be consistent in your efforts to lose weight and then you will reap the rewards. By working out every day, I was able to lose 25 pounds in under two months using this program. My tally sheets helped me tremendously and also by drinking lots of water, it helped me stay within the amount of calories I was supposed to eat each day.
I was consuming around 1800 calories a day and working out between 30 minutes to an hour each day. This got me great results and I couldn’t be happier than I am now with my body. Well, I could be and that is what the next month is for before my vacation! I’m set to be fitter than ever and hope that I can meet my goals by being consistent and dedicated.
I recommend using the 21 day fix workout schedule to truly stay on track and to help you log how many calories you burn per workout. On average, I burn between 200-400 calories per workout but that is pushing myself really hard. If you put forth the same amount of effort I do, you won’t have a problem getting the same results.
