21 Reasons I love 21 Day Fix!

Today I figured that I would break down my results and the reasons why I absolutely love the 21 day fix!! So I figured I would list the 21 reasons why I love the 21 day fix!

I also envisioned them being too hardcore for me similar to insanity and those intense programs. So I always thought the only way for me as a mom to get fit again would be running (which I hate) or going to the gym....more

I'm feeling good today after my 10 mile pre-dawn run with the lab and that makes me nervous. In my OCD world, I understand all the way down to my itsy-bitsy, microscopic cells that I have absolutely no right to feel good, as crappy slow-with-snotty-nose as I run lately. It's not logical.And I am all about logical. (Yes, I could hardly type that with a straight face.)...more
