I mentioned last week that I have started the 21 Day Fix. At the time of writing the post I had only done one day. I have a little more knowledge today! I absolutely LOVE this program. It is the first nutrition and exercise program I can stick with. The workouts are killers! But I am happy to report I did every workout! This is a first for me. I worked through the sore muscles and continued. That in and of itself makes me very proud! I feel so much better in only a week. I can only imagine how I will feel after the complete 21 days!
With that all said....I am happy to report that I have lost 6 pounds and at least an inch in each area of measurement on my body. My wedding bands are loose on my finger already. Just simply amazing what a little...no a lot...of hard work will get you. I have not felt hungry one bit after starting this journey!
I ate things like....
Scrambled eggs, 1 slice of bacon and a piece of whole wheat toast. (2 red containers, and a yellow container)
Blueberries, greek yogurt and honey (1 Purple container, 1 red container, teaspoon)
Raspberries, grilled chicken, celery, carrots and mixed greens with honey mustard dressing. (1 purple container, 1 red container, 2 green containers, 1 orange container)
Sloppy Spaghetti (recipe coming soon). 1 Red container, 1 yellow container, 1 green container
Pulled Pork (Recipe coming soon) with mixed veggies and a small baked potato. 1 Red Container, 1 Green Container and 1 Yellow Container.
Sausage and Kale tortilla pizza (recipe coming soon). 1 Yellow container, 1 red container, 1 green container, and 1 blue container.
Most of my lunches consisted of salads and some leftovers from the previous nights supper. This is not a diet. When I went on a diet it usually only lasted for a short period of time. This is a lifestyle change. We have completely changed the way we eat. I now eat to live not live to eat. Oh don't get me wrong...I still LOVE to eat. But now I eat to fuel my body. I'm sure at some point in this journey I will slip up. But I will pick myself up and continue on! I do not ever want to go back to feeling horrible again.
