Let’s get right to it, shall we? Below are the FINAL two days for the “It Takes Grit Summer Series Challenge.” We made it! There were days when I struggled to get up and move, but I managed to push myself and do the workout. (Also, having a blog currently posting about a challenge serves as great motivation) After Day 29 and 30 are complete, scroll down to view the results I got from following this program.
The Results are in…
After 4.2 weeks of working out with Rebecca Louise, here we are- at the end. We all come into these 30-Day challenges with goals we’d like to achieve. Mine was to feel better about myself and to tone up a bit. Judging from how I’m feeling mentally and physically, and seeing the progress in the photos below, I’d say mission accomplished. My mentality has gotten back to a more positive state, and my overall confidence has improved. Truth-be-told, I was feeling a little down about myself last month, which is why I chose to participate in this challenge.
If you have been doing these workouts along with me, you may have heard Rebecca mention the nutrition plan that went in conjunction with the videos. I did not follow that. I like to think I eat pretty well. During this month, however, I did make it another goal of mine to enhance the quality of food I eat. I focused on getting more nutritional density from food and relying less on supplements.
Now, on to the before and after photos! *drumroll, please* 🥁
From what I’ve observed, the changes (aside from getting a haircut), though subtle, are slimmer arms, thighs, and love handles, a more defined butt, and reduced back fat. I’ll take that as a win.
After spending so much time with Rebecca- albeit a one-sided, virtual experience- it’ll be strange not hearing her voice every morning. Given the slowly lifting lockdown policies, I’ve seen her more than any other person I know in the past three months. All-in-all, it’s been a great 30 days- we’ve danced together, laughed together, and maybe even cried a bit.
In regards to the ITG challenge, I enjoyed Rebecca’s innovative ways to compile moves we have all done a thousand times and keep the workouts engaging. I believe my success was attributed to the more rigorous workouts six days a week as opposed to my usual three. One thing for sure is: I will be revisiting these workouts when I go back to my regular schedule- I miss yoga. So much. I will, however, be adding in an extra day or two of body weight/strength training workouts on top of what I typically do. I want to keep my body toned and my mind happy- who doesn’t?
