It’s Monday, which means I have officially completed my first week of The 21 Day Fix. Here are my thoughts, feelings and (more importantly) what I ate.
So if you are not sure what the 21 Day Fix is, feel free to read my 21 Day Fix introductory post. In a nutshell it’s a 30 minute daily workout program BUT what’s different is it teaches you PROPER portion control. You will be given containers and you simply fill the food up, dump it on the plate and go from there.
No counting calories, counting macros, NO STARVATION!
21 Day Fix The Food:
I definitely didn’t starve. I was satisfied and full the whole week. When you fill up on nutrient dense food, that’s going to happen. Plus I feel awesome! The best part of this program is that there is no DEPRIVATION. I had a glass of wine with my steak dinner on Wednesday and last night I had some dark chocolate with my fruit.
The whole point is it takes 21 Days to make or break a habit, and this teaches you LIFE skills. That’s why I love it so much. There is information on the “containers to use” when you go out for pizza or just out to a restaurant. Again, it’s teaching you portion size that you can use in everyday life.
There are still foods that you cannot eat, basically if it’s not in the book – it’s a no. There are recipes for cookies and treats that you can have, but no store but junk. If there is a chemical in it, it’s a no. Or better yet – if it’s in the middle shelves of the grocery stores (and it’s not peanut butter or whatever) – back away.
Here are some collages of what I ate from Instagram. I stopped posting on the weekend, because it’s pretty repetitive considering my husband is away this week and I’m just cooking for myself and my toddler.
A lot of repetition for the last few days, but it’s so good and I switch it up with seasoning’s and hot sauce. This is what I chose to use my containers for, but the possibilities are endless. This week I have a few different choices on my meal plan, including Cream of Broccoli Soup and Turkey Chili.
Every Sunday, I pre wash and cut up all my veggies and fruit. I put my stir fry ingredients together so that way I can quickly make it when the time comes. Doing this has saved me. On nights where I’m too lazy to cook, I don’t really have to, it’s done for me – I just have to saute and it’s done. I pre-cooked and cut up some chicken as well. This is a great option for busy parents and for those who work! Your lunches and snacks are ready for you to bring to the office. A little preparation goes a long way.
