How was your Monday? Monday’s have not been good for me, lately. My motivation has been, well, MIA but that all changed today with some planning yesterday.
I planned our meals for the week, planned my workouts, joined a new challenge group and got myself all ready for…..21 Day Fix Extreme! Jump over to my new Coaching page for more information about Beachbody but I am also going to recap my meals and workouts for the next 21 Days. I had “sorta” started last Monday and was pretty good with my workouts but my diet was not great. I eat healthy but I have to kick my sweet tooth because I know that is what is holding me back on my toning up fitness goals.
I joined another challenge group (more on that in a few) so that I could be a better participant and find motivation to tone up before the holidays weigh me down. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a treat here or there especially with the holidays but I want to make better choices using Shakeology shakes to curb my sweet tooth. I plan to try lots of recipes for my shakes because let’s face it a basic shake can be a little boring, ’emm I right?!?!?
So how did I kick off Monday on the right foot? Well, I planned everything out on Sunday to be prepared for the day.
- Meal planning
- Workout planning
- 21 Day Fix Extreme planning
Okay here it goes!
Workout – Plyo Fix Extreme
Breakfast – Banana and Peanut Butter Oatmeal (1 purple, 1 yellow, 1 tsp)
Lunch – Apple Pie with Shakeology Vanilla (1 purple, 1 red)
Snack – Carrots (1 green)
Dinner – Salmon, green beans, mashed potatoes (1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow)
I had dinner at my friends house and see cooked a wonderful meal as mentioned above. Unfortunately I did not get a picture and we also had 2 pieces of chocolate afterwords which I will use as my blue container for “fats.”
At first the cups seem really small but it helped to plan my whole day ahead of time to make sure I was using them correctly and then portioned things out which is the first picture in each group. The second picture is of course after I prepared the meal and it makes for a filling meal but also helped me stay very aware of where little things can creep into my daily eating and how to avoid it.
So I mentioned joining a Challenge Group earlier and it’s a private facebook group where we post recipes, check-in after a workout, get motivation, ask questions and meet other people going through the same process. It has been fun meeting others “online” all over the country who work full-time, have kiddos, are motivation challenged or just people who will just help keep me accountable. I mean, posting that I got my workout done and getting ideas for 21 Day Fix approved recipes is awesome!
