21 Day Fix, here I come...

I saw an infomercial on the 21 Day Fix early one morning.  It looked interesting. Since my gym membership was getting ready to expire, and I wasn't going to renew it, I thought the exercise DVD's would be a nice alternative.  There are 7 DVD's and you do a different one every day of the week and at the end of the week you start over.  I thought that alternating them would keep me from getting bored of doing the same one over and over again.

But I am vegetarian.  Would this program work for me?  After doing a TON of research, joining Facebook groups, and asking LOTS of questions, it turns out that  - yes, it would most definitely work for me.  Some things have to be tweaked and changed a bit, but I am use to that.

So, after more thinking and debating I finally ordered it.  I waited for three days and it finally came.  It is set up to start on a Monday, so I was going to start today. 

But, of course, the *universe* had other plans.  A cold went through our house like wild fire, so of course by Thursday I had it too.  I spent most of the weekend in bed, I wasn't able to meal plan or shop.  I also knew that I could not do the workouts starting today because my body has been weakened.  So now next Monday is my start day.

 I do not plan on becoming a Beach Body coach, a life style coach or anything like that.  I also will not be drinking Shakeology since I can not afford it.  When I joined the groups on FB I got a lot of people wanting to be my coach, but I had to buy the Shakeology from them.  When I would tell them that I truly could not afford $140 a month for the Shakelogy I was told that sure I could.  Or how could I not afford good health, wasn't I worth it etc.  Push, push, push.  It was so annoying!  I do not want to turn into someone like that.  So I will just work the program and experiment with other protein drinks.  I already have one ready to go, that I researched to death.  I will share more about that later.
