21 Day Fix Meal Planning


I was so excited to get my 21 Day Fix in the mail yesterday! I read everything first and then I been sitting and trying to figure out a meal plan with the calories I'm allowed (1,500 - 1,799). I think that part is going to be harder than exercising lol It's hard to spread the containers through the day, using only the foods that you are allowed to use and how many containers of each. My hardest meal of the day is going to be breakfast. I hate eating a sweet breakfast ... So there goes oatmeal with fruit or yogurt with fruit. I do like those, but not for breakfast. I decided to do whey protein shakes after my workout for as long as I can afford to. My daughter is doing the program with me and I KNOW she is gonna want a shake too lol So we will see!

Here are two plans I came up with so far, I didn't really fill in the dinner parts, I just know there will be some sort of meat and a veggie.

21 Day Fix

I did it, I ordered the 21 Day Fix!!! It shipped out this morning, and I should get it no later than next Monday. I can't wait! I been wanting it for a long time, a few years. Money has been stopping me. I'm worried that I won't be able to afford to eat clean all day long, every day and no skipping meals/snacks etc. But I am certainly going to try hard! If I can afford to I will be making it a lifetime change to do so. I don't see 21 Day Fix as a diet, but as a life change. This is something I need. It also teaches you portion control, which is another struggle for me. I know I eat all wrong, and it teaches you how to eat right. The right foods and the right amounts of them. I'm so ready for the change ... I been ready. And it also comes with exercise DVDs, all different ones for each day for 30 mins a day. I read all good reviews. I can lose up to 15lbs in 21 days. I can't remember how many inches, but I think it was 15 as well.

With this, I am also gonna try meal prep for the week. Maybe this will work out great for my family. I plan to prep it all (and cook it), but I might leave a few days out to cook it fresh ... like fish. I will never ever eat it reheated ... yuk lol But I think anything else I can eat reheated. Doing this I will have no excuse to eat the wrong stuff.

I am happy to learn that I can still have my popcorn while doing the 21 Day Fix lol I love my popcorn :) :P

I paid a lot for the 21 Day Fix ... So I won't waste my money and give up on it. I plan to keep doing it till I hit my goal weight of 120-115lbs .. then follow the plan to maintain my weight.

I will be keeping you all updated via this blog. I'm sure I will be sharing it all with you and some.
