Living a Healthy Lifestyle

IMG_0098

I have been doing The 21 Day Fix since April 12th.  Round three just completed.

16 inches lost, 14.5 pounds lost!

Overall, I have lost 42 pounds of 55 pounds.

When I had my kids close together, I gained 55 pounds.  I was slowly losing the weight (very slowly).

Then I was hit with very bad vertigo (4 months postpartum), and was unable to walk for almost 2 months, out of work for almost 4 months.  Eventually, I was back on the treadmill and running 4 times per week.

Then we finally received the diagnosis of Autism for our son, which allowed us to receive specialized therapy everyday (ABA Therapy 6 hours/day).  Our lives have become therapy, appointments and stress.

I continued to run, but our meals consisted of take out and frozen meals from Trader Joe’s (and lots of wine).

I was tired, sluggish and just feeling so unhealthy.  You can’t out exercise a very bad diet.

Along came The 21 Day Fix and Autumn.

Thank you Autumn.

I started cooking all my food, measuring all food and doing my daily workout. I cut out all alcohol, detoxed sugar and processed foods.

Yesterday, I wore a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans!

Even though I have a few more pounds to go, I feel 100% better and that is the motivation I need to keep going!
