Good morning & Happy Thursday!
Time to review my week 2 progress for the 21 day fix. Can I just say how I am loving how this new change has affected myself, my personality, and my body?! I never thought it would be possible for eating healthy can affect my total self. It’s eye opening and refreshing. And for once, I don’t crave bad foods or soda. I think I found the one…
My main concern was staying at my fiance’s house all weekend. He isn’t exactly the healthiest eater (all though he is getting better) and his lack of food would throw me off track. So I meal planned & prepped. I packed all my food Friday after work and headed over to his place. Saturday morning I made 2 eggs + basil + feta cheese with a vanilla shakeology w/ almond milk and peanut butter. This has been my main breakfasts through the week and on weekends. Very simple and very filling!
I even packed my 21 Day Fix dvds so I could still get my workouts in at his place. I only rested on Sunday because I was super sore after all the hard workouts I did for last week. The rest of my meals were simple: rice, quinoa, egg wraps, lots of veggies, etc… it’s hard getting fancy with foods when I’m not at my own home.
Sunday was my grocery shopping day. I stocked up on more veggies, proteins, and fruits. It’s a lot easier for me to shop every Sunday to ensure that my veggies and fruits are fresh and that they don’t go bad by stocking up on more than I can eat. Plus I feel it’s a lot cheaper. My method of thinking can be sometimes weird.
After I was finished shopping, I headed home to start my meal prepping for the week. Here is what I basically ate all week:
- Breakfast: 2 eggs + hot sauce + spinach, Shakeology + peanut butter + almond milk or water
- Mid-Morning: Fruit + pistachios
- Lunch: Lettuce + whole wheat wrap + dijon mustard + onions + chicken
- Afternoon: Greek yogurt + banana + veggies
- Dinner: quinoa + mushrooms + protein + veggies
I’ve been mixing up my workouts a lot so that my body doesn’t get used to doing the same routines. I’ve been walking/jogging every other day while mixing in the Tone It Up workouts. When I’m not walking, I do the 21 Day Fix DVDs along with the Tone It Up workouts. I always try to do cardio + toning exercise for best results. After all, summer is 6 weeks away!
I gotta say, the new TIU bikini booty workout is a killer. I was drenched in sweat and burnt over 100 calories in a mere 12 minutes. Head over to their page to try it for yourself! I’m currently on day 11 of the 21 day fix and I never would have made it without my friend Lauren. We are still texting each other every day with our meals, workouts, and motivation. I found it to be a lot better when you have someone with you because you don’t want to let your team down. I highly suggest finding someone to do this plan with you if you struggle sticking to things (like myself). I haven’t weighed or measured myself yet. I’m waiting until after my 21 days to see what I’ve accomplished.
I can feel a difference in myself. That’s all that really matters at this point. I feel more confident about myself (which I never, ever feel) and I look forward to my meals and workouts. My body feels tighter and slimmer. I’ll take it! I am looking forward to doing round 2 after this as well. Stay tuned for my final review next week!
