If you guys follow me on Instagram (shameless promotion @laraajouzz), you may have seen that I decided to start the 21 Day Challenge with Healthy Happy Us. I read so much about this challenge back when they were still in round 1, so it got me super excited to try it myself during the second round.
To begin with, what is the 21 Day Challenge?
Just as the name says, it’s a 3 week challenge that will help you get rid of the stubborn kgs of fat.
The 3 week challenge includes:
- A total of 5 juicing days spread out through the 21 days. They include a special recipe of protein energy balls and crunchy salad (delivered to your house) – I decided not to go with this option, but you can definitely try it.
- Weekly meal plans
- Weekly 30-45 minute workout videos
- Delicious recipes that take no more than 30 minutes, even if it’s your first time in the kitchen!
After I did my body composition test, I realized that I gained 2 kilos and my fat levels need some adjustment. I want to challenge my body to become stronger and healthier and that is not only a 21 day goal, I want to make it a life-long goal.
What am I feeling so far?
Now I am at week 1 in this challenge, and I am already starting to feel the difference. I obviously didn’t lose weight not gained muscles yet, but I changed some bad habits! The challenge definitely helps you discipline yourself since it’s slightly strict in terms of what food you should be consuming and the quantities. I also found myself really interested in the meal planning concept; it made me excited to cook my meals and try them the second day. I am aware that I don’t have a huge target in terms of weight loss, but it’s important to detox every now and then, and give your body a break from all the useless processed and junk food that we consume regularly.
If you’re interested in taking the challenge yourself, make sure you reach out to Healthy Happy Us to start your program. You can meet the dietitians Baraa El Sabbagh or Rola Ghaddar at Healthy Happy Us in Beirut, Lebanon or you can book an online appointment.
Stay tuned for the second post during week 2 where I will be revealing more about my food and workouts!
