I was looking for a new way to mix up my workouts and eat healthier. Lately, I have been trying to make smart choices in the kitchen, but I felt I could be doing better. I still had candy/chocolate almost daily. And yes, the protein cookies are still cookies. I have heard about the 21 Day Fix meal plan before. I have pinned many things on it. I was thinking of finding a challenge from one of the fitness ladies I follow and was going to buy the food portion containers from Wal-Mart.
I went on BeachBody, looked at some videos and decided to buy the program. Why not. We all know I am not good at making goals, so this will be good to work towards. I started the videos on Sunday (because I couldn’t wait!). And I prepped my food so it was ready to go on Monday. I am following the program for the most part. It will take time to get used to eating the full servings of veggies. I prepped my breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the 5 days so I am ready to go. I did the dinners to keep me on track. The days I don’t feel like cooking I tend to go to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Not the healthiest of choices.
So far I like the workouts that I have done. I do not plan to see a huge difference, or plan to drop 15 pounds. I am looking at building a little muscle and learning to make better decisions when it comes to food. This weekend will be my first challenge. I have a Christmas brunch Saturday, followed by a Christmas dinner that night. Then Sunday evening we have Paul’s work Holiday party at a local restaurant. I will need to make sure I portion control and try to pick the healthiest choices available.
Here is what I have made for my breakfast for the week. Eggs with broccoli and strawberries. For the eggs, I scrambled eggs and mixed in cooked broccoli. Put in a baking dish and baked in the oven.
Have a great day and stay warm,
