Week 1 DONE! {21 Day Fix}

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.
