Tomorrow is Week 3, Round 2 of my 21 Day Fix and I’ll be honest I haven’t been doing great! I started Round 1 super motivated and after I hurt my back and had to sit out on W3 R1, I just never got back into the groove. I fell back into bad eating habits and even when my back felt better I didn’t workout every day. Hey, it happens. The way I see it I have 2 options. 1. I can say screw it and continue on with eating healthy when I feel like it and working out when it’s convenient or 2. I can just DO IT! I choose the latter.

So to finish off R2 STRONG, today I did my meal prepping for the week! As you’ve seen in some of my previous posts, healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring and it doesn’t have to be hard but this week I want healthy eating to be the most simple thing I do all week so I’m going basic; it’s going to be repetitive and it is going to be boring! But that’s ok, that’s my choice and I’m allowed to eat boring if I want! Not only is it going to be basic but it’s going to be a lot more food than I’m used to eating. See, I don’t eat. Not because I have some crazy notion that starving myself is going to get me the body I want, I just forget to eat. But not this week, no this week I’m going to eat according to my 21 Day Fix Meal Plan and that means eating a lot! I’m following the 1,200-1,499 21 Day Fix calorie chart which means my daily intake should be: 3 Green, 2 Purple, 4 Red, 2 Yellow, 1 Blue, 1 Orange and 2 Tsp and for those of you unfamiliar with 21 Day Fix Containers:

Red = Protein

Green = Vegetables

Purple = Fruit

Blue = Healthy Fat

Yellow = Healthy Carbs

Orange = Dressings

 

So here’s my menu with container count:

MONDAY

  1. Protein Waffle w/1 tsp natural peanut butter :: 1 Yellow, 1 tsp
  2. Vanilla Shakeology with Fruit (frozen berries mix, pineapple or banana) :: 1 Red, 1 Purple
  3. Grilled Chicken, Brocolli & Carrots :: 1 Red, 1.5 Green
  4. 1 Slice Dave’s Killer Good Seed Bread w/1tsp coconut oil, Raw Almonds :: 1 Yellow, 1 tsp, 1 Blue

  6. Ground Turkey, Peas & Carrots :: 1 Red, 1.5 Green

21 Day Fix Sunday Meal Prep

You’ll notice I’m cutting my Yellow Container (Carbs!!) short Wednesday, Thursday and Friday…why would anyone do that?! Well that’s because with the 21 Day Fix program you can replace 1 Yellow Container with a 4 oz glass of WINE!!! If you know me, even if you don’t really know me and follow me on social media, you know I love my wine! Wine is definitely a vice, I have a glass every night after the kiddos go to bed and my hubby and I get to relax and talk about our day so cutting it out cold turkey just isn’t going to work for me. But limiting it to 3 times a week is totally doable.  Another thing that I’m having a hard time cutting out cold turkey is COFFEE…ugh I love coffee!!! I just love it so much, and my husband loves me more when I have coffee in my system. Bless him, he encourages me to quit but I know he secretly wants to pour it down my throat lol. The only reason coffee is so bad for me is because I NEED sugar, I switched to Organic sugar months ago but sugar is sugar! My plan of action for the week is to gradually reduce the amount of sugar I put into my coffee. So instead of 3 spoonfuls (yes, you read that right, I use 3 spoonfuls of sugar!) I’ve been using 2.5 for the past few days and this week I’m going down to 2. Baby steps people, don’t judge me!

 

Cooking isn’t hard, grocery shopping isn’t hard (in fact I didn’t even grocery shop this week all of this was made with food I already had in the fridge/freezer) the hard part is making the decision to be better to yourself and live a healthier life. This isn’t a diet, it’s a choice!

 

Have some tips for me or need some help with your own meal prep? Let’s continue the conversation! Comment here or connect with me on Facebook!
