June’s #21DayFix Weight Loss Challenge

by Erika Torres

Alright people, swimsuit season is right around the corner and I know I can’t be the only vain one, right?

<Insert something here about being healthy, getting fit yadda yadda yadda>

I figured I’d actually put it on blast on my blog and be public about it so maybe that will give me some actual motivation?

I’ve been doing well with working out consistently, and have even been mindful of my eating (well, it comes and goes).

BUT– I could always use an extra push to remind myself that health (and looking good in a bikini) should always be a priority.

I did really well last fall and had some great results. I need to get back there!

I really need a jump start to get back on track and I’ve had success with challenges before so I figured I’d actually follow it this time and be public about it.

Enter Tatlock’s Truth June Challenge to help get us back on the “Being Healthy” track.

June Challenge

I’ve been following Shannon’s blog for a while now and have found her so inspirational. In the past year, she’s worked on eating healthy, getting fit, and has lost more than 40 pounds! You can check out her before and after photos here.

You can read the Challenge details on her blog, but essentially it’s 1) Drink More Water 2) Portion Control 3) Exercise More.

We stay accountable by either posting on our own blog or commenting on her blog posts.

I’m adding my own mix to the June Challenge by trying out the #21DayFix –I’m sure you’ve heard about it–all the cool bloggers are doing it. Haha.

Basically you use these funky looking containers that help you learn portion control. You follow the 30-minute exercise DVD (a different routine for every day of the week). And you take before and after photos to truly see the results.

If you’ve been on the fence about doing this program, the June challenge will be sure to kick your butt! And I’ll be part of it, so we can keep each other motivated.

Thanks for sharing my challenge! Hope it’s been going well for you so far!!! 🙂

It seems interesting, but I lack the willpower and consistancy to color coordinate my food. I would have to do the challenge in weeks instead of a month.

I’ve always found my biggest struggle is learning portion control. Every time I think I’ve got it down, it turns out I was miscalculating, and then I stop trying for a while. It sounds like this container method might help me pin it down. I’ll be looking into this more!

Awesome stuff! I want those containers! I like challenges, I’m currently in a 12 week program. What has been helping me is Instagram surprisingly. I follow a lot of fitness people and they’re always posting exercises, healthy food, and motivational stuff. I’ll look into this challenge after I finish my 12 weeks, I’m in week 4!

I really want to cut down on sugar but it’s hard for me, so I’ve been trying to cut down slowly.

you got this friend, you know what works for you! accountability is HUGE though, isn’t it?!

Usually once a year I reach a point that I need some sort of a cleanse and/or bootcamp to get me back on track and shed some extra weight. I’ve found success when I cut out sugar, white flour, and alcohol. It’s not easy, but it gets results. Best of luck on your challenge!

Good luck with the challenge! I do well with exercise, but eating has always been somewhat challenging. I eat good foods, but sometimes too much of that, like olive oil, avocado, and hummus. Good stuff, but lots of calories. I’ve also cut back on alcohol (even though really I never drank much to begin with), and that’s been a little un-fun. lol!

I love that color coded food containers, I need to lose some weight too. Last month I jogged every morning, but I stopped, hopefully next week I’ll be back on the track again with good diets.

Cece @Pink Sunshine May 29, 2014 - 3:13 pm

I’ll be in Cancun end of next month so I definitely need to get on my exercise wagon too. I’m really interested in those color coded portion control bowls!!! Did she ever provide a link to where she gets them or what sizes? Is that pic eats for the day?

haha, I guess I didn’t explain it well enough.

No, the bowls are completely separate from her challenge. That is just MY version of the June Challenge. IT’s a completely separate program called #21DayFix and it’s the bowls and the DVD workouts. You actually get a certain number of bowls each day based on how many calories you’re supposed to eat. SO for example, I could have like 4 blue bowls (protein), 3 Yellows (carbs) etc. It’s through the Beachbody program. You can order the program through my friend Dawn if you’re interested: dawnmuldowney at gmail

However, that’s more of a financial committment. YOu can do the June Challenge by simply following some sort of eating and work out plan.
