As I mentioned yesterday, I went ahead and started the 21 day fix today! I would have to say today has been, okay. Not great, but not bad.
My calorie range is in the 1200-1499 range. I am allowed
I started this before a trip to the store, but I had everything here to fill my containers. After getting through today, I realized I need to move my meals around a bit, because I was REALLY hungry between 3-6. So here is what my day looked like.
No creamer, 1 stevia. I WILL adjust LOL.
1 red, 1 purple
2 hard boiled eggs, and strawberries
I am not very hungry in the morning, and plan on taking out a red this early. I feel like I could of used it later in the day.
Snack after workout
1 red, 1 purple
No picture for this (sorry!) but I had one scoop of vanilla Shakeology, 10oz of water, and half a banana.
1 red, 2 greens, 1 blue and 1 orange
No more cheese to fill up my blue, I really didn't need it. And I had to cheat a little and use some of my yogurt ranch dressing...I know, I know. But in my defense, I didn't have anything to make the 21 day fix dressings, and I was hungry, and didn't want a dry salad. I used about half of my orange container just to give it a little more flavor.
The girls get home, and normally we are digging for a snack. Apples, string cheese, things like that...well, I couldn't have those today, and again, I was hungry! This is the normal time I'm snacking, so was it my mind triggering my body to be hungry, but I could of been okay? Maybe. Regardless, I had 1 yellow, which was a sweet potato, while we relaxed after school and played Mario Cart.
1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow
That's rice, lettuce, and a turkey burger cut up.
SO. I did my best. I definitely have room to improve. There are lots of options when it comes to these meals, but I worked with what I had at home.
Right now, again, I'm a little hungry. But like I told my husband, I'm doing this to change my habits. Normally on a day like today when I felt hungry, I would of stuck my head in the fridge and got something to eat. Not knowing where I was for the day in calories, or in carbs/proein/fats.
Since I am in the lowest calorie bracket, I am going to give this a few days, and then see if I'm still this hungry at the end of the day. I don't know if I adjust...or stick it out the whole 21 days.
Oh, and the first workout...was AWESOME. I am already sore. I was breathing heavy the entire time. She has a Jillian type style of workouts, but isn't as hardcore. I'll try and get a video up tomorrow. :)
