21 Day Fix invitation
• by emilie
Spring is coming (any day now, right?!) and after spring is wedding season! Whether you're getting married, in a wedding, attending a wedding, photographing a wedding, working a wedding or not at all affiliated with weddings (ha!), the warmer weather inspires us all to take a little better care of ourselves.
I admit, I've had a terrible time fitting in fitness after having children. Between my two little humans, a husband, a dog, a house, a business and team, there's very little left for me. I used to work out several times a week with a personal trainer pre-kids (shout out to Cindy of Body of Work in South Portland!) and was fortunate to carve out the time to see her again this winter. But my days of going to the gym every day, taking classes, and walks around Back Cove or to Bug Light are no longer feasible. Maybe they will be one day?
Fortunately, working out at home is a more realistic option. I first learned about the BeachBody DVD (and now on-demand) fitness program when P90x came screaming onto the scene (90 minute workouts every day for 90 days– intense!) when J and I were preparing for our own wedding. In more recent years, I have tried T25, PiYo and their 21 Day Fix. In conjunction with a workout regimen at home (that consists of a yoga mat, some weights and a resistance band), I have a subscription to Shakeology, their nutrient-dense protein shake (vegan chocolate is my favorite! I mix it with banana, sunbutter and almond milk). The biggest perk to the program is access to a personal coach.
Jackie Garnett is one of our 2011 brides and a BeachBody coach. She has offered to host a round of 21 Day Fix for us! You, me, your friends, your colleagues, your parents, anyone is welcome! 21 Day Fix is a 30-minute workout for three weeks. Each day is a different DVD- cardio, upper body, lower body, even yoga. Totally doable. There is also a nutrition component with a meal plan. Once enrolled, Jackie will invite you to join a private Facebook group. Having these groups– and being held accountable– has been a huge aspect of my success in the programs in the past.
We're set to launch on Monday, April 20th.
Interested (oh, I hope you are!)? Email Jackie to purchase your set of DVDs asap so that they will arrive in time. And we'll see you on the private Facebook group!
