21 Day Fix Day 1





A few weeks ago I felt like I was having a quarter-life crisis. Lately I have felt stuck. Like I was living Groundhog Day everyday. It seemed like all I did was work and come home. Don't get me wrong I do have things in my life that I am so grateful for. But, sometimes the routine of everyday life can make you feel stuck. I knew I needed a change because I don't want to stay where I currently am. One of the things I knew I needed to do was work on my health.

These last few months I've really been slacking with a workout routine and was basically grabbing TV dinners. I had been wanting to do the 21 day fix for awhile now. I finally decided if not now then when? 

It arrived in the mail today. I was expecting it eagerly all weekend long. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning opening up a present. 


The kit comes with the color portion control containers. For me I love this idea. I've done calorie counting and points counting before and although those might work for some it did not work for me. I am a visual person so I enjoy actually being able to see the portions. It was actually fun using the colored containers. 

I get to eat around 1800 calories a day. I still haven't used up all my containers today. But, I like having the option to eat more food if needed. 

I also did the full body cardio workout. It was a lot of work even using the modified version but I still pushed through it. 


Breakfast: A plain omelet (not pictured)
Oatmeal with strawberries, blueberries, and cinnamon

Lunch: 2 hard boiled eggs( it was awhile since I made those. And they are so delicious.) 
Turkey bacon
(Mostly protein which I tend to eat more of on a diet. Although I could have added a carb and some fruit or vegetables. It was also a late breakfast so I was not that hungry.) 

Dinner: vegan Italian sausage and cabbage

Snack: hummus with pita 

Dessert: if needed I will have some fruit or some yogurt 


This Shakeology bottle also came in handy today. I made strawberry infused water. It was delicious and I drank 3 of these today. For someone who is not really a water drinker I am so proud of myself.


*I am not a Beachbody coach or selling Beachbody products or the 21 day fix.  This is NOT a sponsored post I paid for the program myself. This is my honest opinion about using The 21 day fix to reach my health and fitness goals.

  1. Good for you! I like the idea of color coding but I am confused where you fit in the shake? Or is this something different from a shake? I guess I automatically relate shakes to Shakeology. LOL
