The 21 Day Fix... so far

I'm almost at the halfway point of the 21 Day Fix (But not at the halfway point of my Challenge group, yet).  So I have some thoughts.  (No one gave me any promotional material.  I paid for this out of my tax return!)

1.) The eating plan:

I've been doing the Weight Watchers thing.... and this is more of the same.

Honestly I went into this thinking that I'd give this the whole college try.  While I know that I'm not following it perfectly (The need to doctor these Shakeology shakes so they are drinkable sometimes puts me over my count)

I do know that the Shakeology is VERY expensive, so it's not going to be a regular part of my diet after this.

But all of the portioning is something that I've DESPERATELY needed to get back to.

Figuring out your calories takes math.  I'm in the 1500 range.
2.) The Work outs
There is actually a method to the timing of the workouts.

(FYI: Dirty 30 is SO HARD!  And I'm finding that I'm not a fan of Yoga.)

I do enjoy the workouts.  I LOVE that there is modification.  And I tend to (for the moment) work somewhere between the modifications and the real moves.  The workouts are challenging, but not so hard that you want to give up.  Next week will be the big challenge, with the 2 workouts a day.  I need to find time to add running into this mix as well.  I'll do that after the 21 days are over.

All in all, I'm liking what I'm doing.  Would I recommend it?  Yes.  Is it expensive?  Absolutely.

Is it worth it?  For me it has been.
