I am so excited to be starting the 21 Day Fix program and meal plan on Monday! I completed this program about a year ago and had great results so I have decided to go all in once again.
As most of you know I had a complete hysterectomy in April and at the time I heard from so many people that everyone gains 10 lbs after this type of surgery. Of course, all along I kept thinking to myself yea, but not me! Boy, was I ever wrong! I not only gained 10 lbs, but I am now 15 lbs away from my goal weight!
After several months of absolutely no activity and bad eating habits I am ready for a change! The 21 Day Fix Program is just want I need. The workouts are only 30 minutes a day and each day is different so there is a variety of types including: cardio, upper & lower body, Pilates and yoga. This is perfect for me because I tend to get board with the same type of workout very easily and I have to admit cardio is not favorite. I only like cardio in small doses!
A big part of this program and what really helps generate the biggest results is the nutrition guide. There is an entire guide that helps you determine what types of food and how much of each type you should be eating each day. Also, included are portion control containers so you will never overeat.
Each day I get the following: 3 green (vegetables), 2 purple (fruit), 4 red (protein), 2 yellow (carbs), 1 blue (fats and cheeses), 1 orange (seeds and oils), and 2 teaspoons (cooking oils and nut butters).
All spices (except salt), fresh herbs, vinegars, mustards, garlic, ginger, lemon and lime juices, tabasco and flavor extras are all considered “free foods” so use these as much as you want.
I will be following the nutrition completely and drinking Shakeology daily!
I just spent quite a bit of time researching the guide, my past recipes, and on Pinterest to come up with 2 weeks worth of family friendly, 21 Day Fix approved recipes and meal plan! Since I am the cook in the family whenever I decide to eat according to a certain plan the entire family “gets” to jump on board and join me. 😉 I hope you check out these recipes and enjoy them as much as we do!
If you would like more info on the 21 Day Fix or want to join me take on the 21 Day challenge please contact me. I will have a private FB group set up with a group of several other ladies and we will all be taking on this challenge together.
