It's day 3 and it's actually going really well. I had legs today and I'm getting more used to the workouts. The warm-up is quick and efficient and the workouts are very straightforward. There aren't any weird dance moves or footwork so if you are just starting it out, this is A GREAT PROGRAM. Now, I've started switching up the meals so I thought it'd be good to post my new meal plan for the 21 Day Fix. Also, we've added in the treat meals as well so you can see that as well.
Now, the treat meals is THE BIGGEST struggle I've personally had to deal with. I usually try to treat myself after a hard day at work with a beer, a box of cookies, etc. And no matter how hard I try to limit those, or say "I'll just have 2", if it's a Friday night I'm downing the whole box!
However, with 21 Day Fix, it's very easy to incorporate some "treat" meals regularly without going overboard. For example, this week, I have a glass of wine up to 3 nights per week, and then an orange container of chocolate covered acai berries the other 3 nights. So there's really only one night where I don't have a "treat" meal. And that's pretty awesome!
1 tsp almond butter
2 corn tortillas
1 red of ground turkey
1 green of salad, with balsalmic vinegar, olives and sunflower seeds for the Orange
Portabello Mushroom for the Bun
Cheese and avocado
2 greens of veggies
Glass of Wine
Now this day I also taught an Insanity class so I was trying to still limit my Yellow Containers but added in an extra 2 greens to help compensate for the extra calorie burn during that intense workout.
Remember, the only workout factored into the 21 Day fix workouts only take into account those workouts. If you are adding in additional workouts (and you don't need to---the 30 mins of the 21 Day Fix is enough), and unless you are doing doubles the last week, make sure you talk with your Coach about adding in some additional containers to make up the difference.
