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)
(1 Green, 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 tsp)
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
(1 purple, 1 yellow, 1 red, 2 tsp, 1 green)
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?
