WIAW: 21 Day fix style


On Monday I started another Challenge Group for the 21 day fix. The start date for this challenge was perfect because it finishes up right before Thanksgiving and is a great way to get ahead before the holidays officially begin!!

I am a huge fan of the meal plan, it’s balanced, allows for any foods, and it makes me feel satisfied and healthy!!

I am linking up with the WIAW crew to share my food journal from Monday. It’s a day of eats using the 21 day fix meal plan!


I started my morning off with a glass of water and 1/2 cup of coffee! I woke up feeling energized from the extra hour of sleep this weekend, so to be honest I barely touched my coffee!!

I did tons of meal prep on Sunday so I already had my breakfast potato hash browns ready to go. I made 2 eggs over easy, had my usual sauteed spinach w/olive oil and lots of those delicious potatoes. I could eat this every day (and I do on most days)

I taught Group Power and after lifting a little heavier I left feeling a little jell-o-e all over. I refueled with a banana, a protein shake and oatmeal with peanut butter and a random bag of carrots

After a quick trip home we headed back to the YMCA for my 2nd class.

Thanks again to meal prep, I had lunch prepared: Turkey Meatballs over Spaghetti Squash.


Also a Granny Smith Apple and avocado! The avocado was random, but that’s because I cut some for Ava and she didn’t want it


(1 red, 1 1/2 green, 1 purple, 1 blue)

I did a couple hours worth of work on the computer, I probably should’ve showered at this point but I didn’t because I was afraid to wake Ava up from her nap! I’m glad I used her nap time to get work done.

Once she woke up I made a quick Chocolate Shakeology with Peanut Butter Powder. This snack fueled me for our long walk with Cooper. It was 65 degrees out so we took advantage of the weather. I also snacked on some sunflower seeds


(1 red, 1 orange) I didn’t count the PB2, I guess it would be an extra teaspoon but it’s only 20 calories for a tbsp

Marc wanted Steak for dinner so that’s what we had :) We both love steak. It’s such an easy meal to cook up so I’m never against it. With our steak we had sweet potatoes & roasted brussel sprouts!


(1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 tsp)

For some reason on Mondays, my appetite is ravenous. I had some Good Bean Sea Salt Chickpeas and Marc and I also shared a bowl of grapes & strawberries


(1 yellow, 1 purple)

It was a yummy day of eating for me. The 21 day fix has helped me stay on top of my food prep and when I prep I make smarter choices. It’s an overall win in my books.

What is something yummy you ate yesterday?

For those of you who have done the 21 day fix, what is your biggest challenge with the meal plan?

  1. My biggest challenge was not eating enough during the 21 day fix. I just couldn’t think of meals to prep and was eating the same things over and over. I became bored and hungry!

    • Hi Kaila!
      I can see how trying to come up with meals is challenging. I find the people in my challenge groups do best when they meal plan and food prep on the weekends. If I don’t have healthy food readily available in my fridge I’m most likely to grab foods that are convenient and usually on the less healthy side.

      If you ever want to join one of my groups let me know :)

  2. I’ve only done a few of the 21 day fix workouts since a friend let me borrow them and it’s something my 2 year old has fun “doing” too, but haven’t seen the meal plans. That said, I’m not really looking to get started there as I’m a stay-at-home dad and part of my “job” is lots and lots of healthy food prep….with a toddler at my feet every minute!

    Your meals look tasty to me, and I’ve just become hooked on those chickpea snacks!

    • Hi R.C.

      That’s great that you do a lot of healthy food prep. I would love to check out some of your ideas. I’m always looking for new stuff to make. I think its awesome that your 2 yr old gets involved with your workouts, I try to get my little one involved too and she loves it.

      The Chickpea snacks are DELICIOUS!! :)
