Week 3 is a wrap and goodness these results are really starting to show. I can feel myself getting stronger, and where once I would get discouraged if the scale wasn't moving, I am now realizing my muscles are popping... and the numbers just don't mean as much!
With a program like this, I realize that the results show first by the fit of clothing. You begin to see definition, but pounds don't necessarily melt off. It doesn't work like that.
So breaking up with the scale has been so important! I am not measuring my progress by pounds. Instead I am focusing on my strength, muscle tone, and fit of clothing! I can't believe how different I feel in the first 3 weeks!

I want to talk about soreness for a minute! After all I'm lifting pretty heavy!
Before I head to bed I can feel my muscles start to tighten and start thinking that I am going to wake up and have to crawl down the stairs, but I've gotta tell you, I use the Beachbody Performance Pre Workout Energize 15 minutes before workout, then during my workout is the Hydrate, Post workout I drink the Recovery followed by my Shakeology for breakfast, then the Refresh is the night time Recharge formula and that is what helps me not feel nearly as sore the next day.
This week, I actually ran out of ALL of my supplements! I am definitely pretty sore, and I noticed that my morning workout didn't have that extra umph! When I workout at 5 am, I really need that extra go juice!
Estimated date of arrival? Tomorrow!
