In my previous post, 2012: Here We Come, I wrote about how I was participating in Fuel 21 and looking forward to the class but also focused on not cheating and following through with the program. I’ve since completed the course back in January and I’ve decided to go at it again. Although not officially enrolled in the program this time around, I saw such amazing results that I had to do it again.
During my first round with the class, I ended up dropping 15 pounds and 2in around the waist. I didn’t do so great and the maintaining portion of the class afterwards and it’s one of the reasons that I’ve decided to give this ago again, this time on my own. One of the things that really worked for me last time was that I told so many people about it at work that it helped hold me accountable. I also wear the wristband that we got while in the program as a reminder to not cheat. Every time I think to go grab something not on the meal plan, looking down on my wrist is a reminder that I’m doing this. The wristband was worth every penny alone as it’s been one of the biggest reminder pieces for me while wresting though this.
Crystal Nelson founded the Fuel 21 class and was a valuable resource during the program and even after it ended. I still run into her at CrossFit and she is always willing to throw down some advice when I have questions about food and diet. It says a lot about an instructor when they will take the time out to give you advice, even after the class is completed.
Here is to another round of looking and feeling great!
