“Fixin” it!

Today was Day 1 of the 21 Day Fix.  In case you haven’t yet read my previous blog posts on the 21 Day Fix (which you totally should by the way), the 21 Day Fix is a fitness and nutrition program geared to run for 21 days. It teaches clean, portion controlled eating, and throws in total body workouts too. People have been experiencing tremendous results on the Fix and in just 21 days, SO, I thought I’d finally give it a go – it’s my turn!

So, let me backtrack for a minute.  After having Monroe, I quickly lost most of my baby weight (within about 5 lbs of my pre-pregnancy weight). Once my body readjusted to all the changes post birth, I did however gain a few lbs back. (typical for me to do after I have a baby – lose a lot, gain some back, then plateau there during the duration of me nursing my kids) Also, I must mention that I’ve just completed the Brazil Butt Lift program so I’m sure some of that weight is due to fat converting to muscle.  In any case, I’m “ok” with my current weight, but wanted to learn how to better fuel my body and choose wiser, more portion appropriate food choices.

Que the 21 Day Fix program!  In preparation of the start of the Fix, I spent last week reading/studying the Eating Guide and trying to best plan out my menu for this first week.  (Trying to utilize what we already had in the fridge, my variety wasn’t very interesting, but simple can still be yummy not to mention easy to prepare too 😉 )

So, here is a run down of what you can expect a typical day on the 21 Day Fix to look like (1200-1499 calorie plan – the book goes over how to calculate your ideal calorie range). Keep in mind there is a TON of variety for you to choose from- this is just what “I” prepared for myself today:

Breakfast:  greek yogurt with a sprinkle of cinnamon and 2 hard boiled eggs (I ate one for breakfast and 1 for a mid morning snack)
unnamed

Lunch: Chocolate, PB, Banana shake – chocolate Shakeology with almond milk, ice, an apple banana, and a tsp of PB. I jazzed it up a bit and drank it from one of the German “steins” Marv brought back from his deployment 🙂

Afternoon snack: 10 baby carrots and about 1/2 a pear (1 purple container)

Dinner: 10 asparagus spears, japanese eggplant, roast chicken (gotta love those Costco $4.99 chickens!), and brown rice.  This turned out to be a TON of food! Those containers may look tiny at 1st glance, but they’re surprisingly deceiving and fit a nice portion of food! And YES, yes I finished all of this.  🙂 Felt full and satisfied but not uncomfortably full afterwards.  By the way, the brown rice is in a ‘container tower’ in the pic…the actual portion was more than it looks, and I had already eaten about 3 asparagus spears and 1/3 of the eggplant before I took the pic…..so LOTS of food! 🙂

After dinner, I dutifully completed my 1st 21 Day Fix workout. What I LOVE about these workouts is that they’re only 30 mins long. Autumn takes the time to really walk you through each move, and there’s a modifier for everything so you can go at your own pace. I broke a sweat with this workout and felt great afterwards!

Followed it up with my evening snack: an orange container of peanuts, and 12 almonds. Again, looks are deceiving! That tiny container turned out to be an adequate amount for me = enough to leave me satisfied instead of uncomfortably full.

My takeaway from today is that I typically eat a TON of carbs! I think that’s why sometimes I get so sleepy after eating. My energy levels were great today, I felt ZERO bloating or yuckiness, and I’m excited to move onto Day 2.  I feel like it’s a game – figuring out what to plan for the next day, using the cute color coded containers, and trying to get creative with meals.  So far I’m feeling great! I KNOW that everything I’m putting into my body is clean, unprocessed, fresh….FUEL for my body vs empty calories!

Beachbody’s newest fitness and nutrition program – the 21DayFix has had such an AMAZING reception so far….results have been phenomenal with participants losing up to 15 lbs in just 21 days!  It combines total body fitness (via 30 min workouts) with CLEAN, portion controlled eating. In wanting to keep the amazing momentum going and HELP others experience their own success with this program, I’ve decided to host a 21DayFix Challenge Group.

What is a Challenge Group?
A Challenge Group is a FREE small, private Facebook group where people come together to complete a workout program TOGETHER.  The purpose of it is to provide support, and encouragement and to keep people motivated as they embark on their fitness/nutrition journey.  I will be posting daily within the group – recipes, words of encouragement, food for thought, assignments, and check ins.

Why should I join?
Joining this Challenge Group will provide you motivation, support, and encouragement as we ALL go through 21 days of this 21DayFix fitness and nutrition program together.  We will all be in the same boat, encouraging one another to stick with it. It won’t be “easy”, but we’ll all be in this TOGETHER!  It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you have to be accountable to not only yourself, but others as well.

What is expected of me in order to participate?
What you need to participate in this Facebook Challenge Group is the 21DayFix program. If you already have it, GREAT! If you still need to order it, click HERE  You will also be required to check into the FB group daily.  It’s only 21 days!

I’m SO READY! When will this start?
This 21DayFix Challenge Group will begin on Monday, March 31st.  If you still need to purchase the program, click the link as mentioned above as soon as possible to order.  Due to its amazingly popular demand, it’s currently backordered 2-4 weeks, so get your order in ASAP! If you still want to join this Challenge but don’t think your order will arrive in time, don’t worry – there will be other 21DayFix Challenge Groups. Make sure to order your FIX program to save yourself a spot in the next Challenge!
