21 Day Fix : Day 4

I’m blogging my 21 Day Fix journey. And, we’re on day four!! It’s been quite the journey already.

First, let me say that I noticed today that I feel good. Like really good. I’m not hungry. I’m not tired. I’m not cranky. I just feel good. Now, the Beachbody people would say that’s the Shakeology working its magic. And, they may be right. That stuff is PACKED with nutrients. I’m know it has something to do with the fact that I’m now getting enough food. I think my coach, Julie, was right yesterday when she said that I may not have been eating enough, well at least enough of the right things.

The other thing that I find interesting is that I have not craved chocolate in like two days. Now, people, this is MAJOR. I LOVE chocolate. I do get a chocolate taste with the Shakeology because I of course ordered the chocolate flavor. But, let’s be real. It doesn’t take like actual say Godiva chocolate. Or even Hershey’s for that matter.

Just a few observations.

Here’s what I ate on Day 4!

Meal 1: 1 Red
2 Hard Boiled Eggs

I got up and ate these BEFORE I did my workout having learned that I need to get some fuel in there and get the eating started earlier.

This is one of my FAVORITE recipes. I make it for my team meetings every once in awhile. I knew right away it was a recipe I wanted to do during the 21 Day Fix. There were plenty of leftovers so I’ll be enjoying it for the next week.

Workout: Pilates Fix (3o min DVD)
This one really helped stretch out everything. I was still REALLY sore today. However, not as bad as yesterday. I’m going to have to watch my back on this one and make sure that I do the movements the exact way she does. It gets a little tricky.

Takeaways:

  • Still didn’t finish my containers, but I’m getting the hang of it better. I got some great advice tonight to add more things to my Shakeology. So, I’m going to try that tomorrow. The goal being to get lots of green stuff in there without tasting it.
  • I’m feeling good and don’t want to quit. THAT my friends IS A WIN!
