The 21 Day Fix journey continues here at the House of Hills. It’s just me doing it so far, but that may change. We’ll see. Let me tell you about Day 5.
Meal 1: 1 Red
2 Hard Boiled Eggs
I got up early again today to get some work done so went ahead and fueled my body and got a couple of cups of water in. Previous to the 21 Day Fix, I would have just waited until after I worked out to eat. But, I can’t get all my food in that way.
Meal 2: 1 Red 1 Purple .5 Yellow 1 Green 2 Tsp
1 Cup Berries
1 Cup Almond Milk
1 Cup spinach
2 tsp Almond Butter
Putting all this in with the Shakeology got in A LOT of my containers. And, it tasted REALLY GOOD!
Meal 3: 1 Red 1 Purple 2 Yellow 1 Tsp
2 Pieces of wheat toast
I’d been craving dippy eggs and toast and then remembered that there was some wheat bread in the freezer. Oh. Happy. Day! Pretty sure I cheated when I put a little bit of Maggie’s margarine spread on there. Just being honest.
Meal 4: 1 Orange 1 Blue
I’m pretty sure I messed up the system by putting whole almonds in the Orange. I think it’s only supposed to be chopped, but I was hungry and had to go pick up Maggie so I needed something portable.
Meal 5: 3 Green 1 Red 1 Yellow .5 Orange 1 Tsp
Meal 6: 1 Purple 1 Red
Light Ricotta Cheese
Yes. Again. I love it!
Totals for the day:
4 Green (short 1)
3.5 Yellow (short .5)
1.5 Orange (over .5)
4 Tsp (short 1) However, I’m sure that extra 1 was probably in there somewhere.
Workout: Cardio Fix (3o min DVD)
So…. this one kicked my tail. Dripping sweat. It’s going to be a good one. I had to do quite a few modifications to help my knees. And, there are burpees. Ya, those.
- Getting as much as possible in the Shakeaology is the key I think. I’m pretty sure I might even be able to get some kale in there and not taste it. Gonna pick some up.
- Speaking of kale, I’m thinking of making some of my green smoothies for next week. They are so refreshing in the summer and will get in a fruit and a veggie for the day.
- I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but I kinda miss the gym. SHOCKER! I won’t say I’m enjoying the workouts, but I don’t hate them. I’ll probably like them better the second time around because I’ll know what to expect. However, I miss the adrenaline rush that comes with finishing several miles on the elliptical and being drenched in sweat. I haven’t been able to work that hard on these videos because they are so high impact. My knees won’t take too much bouncing around. I’d developed a routine at the gym that was pretty low impact. I’m going to see if I can get a trip to the elliptical in soon.
