So today was day 3. Can I just say I am already feeling a difference. Last week I bought 2 pair of pants and both were a little snug. I bought them anyway, keeping the receipts but knowing I was going to follow the 21 Day Fix. I figured I wouldn't need to return them and I had a few weeks to be able to fit into them. Ha! Just 2 days into the Fix and I wore a pair to work today!
Anyway, I was really hoping to run this morning but it was raining and my running buddy doesn’t want to go out when it rains so I headed down to the basement. I started off with a mile run on the treadmill and popped Lower Fix into the DVD player.
The Lower Fix workout has 4 rounds with 2 moves per round and a short break in between each move. I thought it had a good variety of moves targeting all areas of the lower body. I can't say I find anything wrong with this workout. It is tough when you push yourself but it can be easily modified when needed.
My favorite weekday breakfast - Chocolate Vegan Shakeology, coffee with coconut oil and milk. I had about 8 ounces of water during my workout.
1 red, 1 tsp
Half serving of grapes, a serving of strawberries and filled my water bottle (21 ounces).
1 ½ purples
Moroccan beef over rice with Swiss Chard. This was very satisfying and held me over until dinner. Good thing since I had meetings all afternoon and couldn’t grab my snack in the fridge in the afternoon. I want to point out that this was also made up of left-overs so it was easy to pack, nothing really to prepare in the morning, it was quick to heat up and cheaper than buying lunch. Perfect.
1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green
I had meetings all afternoon and wasn't able to make it to the kitchen to get my snack. Surprisingly I was not ravishing when I got home. I looked for something I needed for the day -- an orange container so I grabbled some kalamata olives. Healthy fats are an important component of the meal plan -- don't skip them.
Tonight my youngest had gymnastics and my husband had to do our work share at our CSA pick up site so I had both boys. Quick dinner of eggs, mozzarella cheese, broccoli and tomatoes.
1 red, 1 blue, 1 1/2 green
Yogurt! Tonight I added a little muesli. I needed another yellow. I also needed a half a green but I couldn't figure out how to get it in so I was short today.
Overall another good day with my workout and nutrition. As much as I wanted a glass of wine when I got home since it was just one of those day, I reached for my water. I drank 68 ounces of water...2 ounces short of my goal but really a good day!
