I’m blogging my 21 Day Fix journey! Here’s Day 3.
I went into this day already learning a lot from Days 1 and 2. One thing I determined was that I liked drinking my Shakeology after I worked out. So, I needed to get my workout in early if I was going to have that first thing. I also knew the day had to be planned well, especially since I was going into the office for the whole day. So, I lined up my containers in order of the meals I planned to have while I was away from home. They didn’t all get used, but I had plenty of food with me!
I also was sorer than I have been in years today. I mean let’s just say that I was thankful that the bathroom at work is handicap accessible because that means there is a bar by the toilet. Seriously, every time I would sit down in my chair at work I would count to three to prepare myself for the pain. My co-worker was laughing at me. Well, not really laughing out loud, but I’m sure it was funny. I know it will get better as I get stronger and keep stretching my thigh muscles, but my goodness are the ticked at me right now.
Meal 1: 1 Red
Meal 2: 1 Purple 1 Yellow
Mixed berries – some frozen, some fresh
Steel Cut Oats
Meal 3: 1 Green 1 Red 1 Yellow 2 Tsp
Roasted Zucchini, Squash, Onion
FYI – This was REALLY GOOD. I picked up the zucchini, squash and onion mixture already cut at Publix over the weekend. Then, yesterday I roasted it while I was cooking the oatmeal since I had to be near the kitchen then anyway. I just tossed it with olive oil and then sprinkled with salt and a little pepper. So yummy when paired with the chicken David grilled me over the weekend.
Meal 4: 1 Purple
Meal 5: 2 Green 1 Red 2 Tsp
Fresh, chopped vegetables with 2 eggs
Meal 6: 1 Purple 1 Red
Light Ricotta Cheese
Y’all! This is SO GOOD. Like I couldn’t wait to eat it again good. It almost tasted like cheesecake. Well, I mean, a light cheesecake. But, it was so delicious I totally consider it my go-to for dessert now. You’ll be seeing this picture a lot.
Totals for the day:
4 Green (short 1)
4 Red (short 1)
2 Yellow (short 2)
No Blue (short 1)
4 Tsp (short 1)
I was short a green and blue because I didn’t eat the veggies and hummus I had planned to. I just ran out of time.
Workout: Lower Fix (3o min DVD)
I was SERIOUSLY dreading this workout because my legs were so sore. However, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It felt good to stretch everything out. I had to do some of the modifications as these knees have been through A LOT in their 43 years, and squats are not something they do with ease. However, I didn’t fall out and die. So, there is that. I was, however, dripping sweat into my towel.
- I still haven’t been able to get in ALL the food. I found this very interesting and briefly talked with my coach about it. She thinks that the reason I hit the weight loss plateau is because I haven’t been eating enough. It’s a thought. I have been eating decently, but nothing like the structured eating I’m doing now. I’ve for sure been eating better since I was before January and #HOHGetsFit began, but I knew I could improve on the nutrition, which is one of the reasons I wanted to do the 21 Day Fix.
- You need a lot of little containers to do this thing. Like lots of them. That might be its own blog post – the number of containers in my fridge right now is staggering.
