I completed round one of Shift Shop a week ago. I planned on doing a second round this past week but certain things, like life, got in the way. But Round 2 is on schedule starting tomorrow.
Round 1 was good, I absolutely love the workouts and Chris Downing’s motivation is amazing, this coming from a girl who loves her Shaun T! I followed the workouts to a T, my diet was not as clean as I would have liked, cause this girl loves her carbs and wine, lol.. I did lose 4 lbs. and 5 inches in just three weeks. But, what I got was more energy and confidence than I have had in a while! Getting back on track after my bout of depression has been hard. The mind is the hardest thing to get into shape!
I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in a while. Last week some stuff happened beyond my control and I had a stressful week, I was drained mentally and physically. My eating was ok, and I missed a few workouts. I took Saturday as a mental health day and gave my mind and body total rest, I did not leave my couch, which sometimes I think we all need days like this. I woke up this morning revived and ready to go!
Today I got my shopping done, just prepped some food, got my week planned out so I have nothing but success. Plan to succeed, make sure that you give yourself every chance to reach your goals.
Second round of the Shop is going down starting tomorrow. Going to keep the eating cleaner this round to lean out more, hoping that this week has a little less stress than last. Sometimes we can’g control life, we just have to learn to roll with the punches. I spent most of the week in a roller coaster of emotions. Some unforeseen things happened at work and just kind of threw life in a tail spin for a while. There is light at the end of the tunnel though and this week should be a little less stressful. I am planning on doing some yoga in the evenings to help stretch out some tension in my muscles to go along with the Shop this week. I have my color containers ready to keep my portions under control and goal is at least 100 oz. of water a day.
Here is to a successful round 2 of the shop!
Stay fit and healthy!
