My sweet friend Amber messaged me the other day and told me that she is getting ready to start a challenge group for the 21 Day Fix. I had heard of it before but I didn’t know much about it. She told me some about it and had me watch a couple of YouTube videos. I was very interested. I have been needing to do something to get healthy and this program seems easy enough for me to stick to it.
I ordered the challenged pack and it should be here on Tuesday! I’m excited. I even got my mom to join! I also ordered some dumbbells to use during the workouts and some containers so I can prep my meals in advance. That way I can just grab it from the fridge when I need to eat. Much easier for me to cook a bunch of food at one time and portion it out for the week.
Pinterest has piqued my interest as well. I have created a new board just for the 21 Day Fix and have pinned lots of recipe ideas. Some of them look really good too!
For those of you that don’t know what the 21 Day Fix is, it is a meal portion plan with 2 DVDs with 7 workouts. You get the color coded containers to portion your food based on your weight/goal. You can also get the challenge pack that comes with a 30 day supply of Shakeology shakes. I’ve heard they taste really good. Here is what the containers look like.
I’m going to be doing the 2100-2300 calories per day plan. That means I get 6 containers of veggies, 4 containers of fruits, 6 containers of proteins, 4 containers of carbs, 1 container of healthy fats and cheese, 1 container of seeds/dressings and 6 teaspoons of oils/nut butters. PER DAY! That’s a lot of food! It will definitely take some time to get used to it. But I am bound and determined to stick to this program. I need to get healthy so I can either get pregnant or be ready for and adopted baby!
