It’s day 7 of the 21 Day Fix! I made it through the first week!
Weigh in day is tomorrow. I know I’ve lost weight, but I’m curious to see how much. And, actually, the most important thing is that I feel good, and I’m getting stronger.
Meal 1: 1 Red 1 Purple .5 Yellow 2 Tsp
1 Cup Berries
1 Cup Almond Milk
2 tsp Almond Butter
Still out of spinach. I might should go to the store.
Meal 4: 1 Purple 1 Red
I’ve decided this may be one of my go-tos when I’m going to be out and about. Very easy to transport if you’ve got access to a fridge or cooler. Today, I enjoyed it at church!
CHEAT ALERT: So, I didn’t have enough snacks with me. We went from church to running errands, and by the time we got to Sprouts I was starving. I haven’t been starving much during this whole thing, and it made me very grumpy. So, I had a few slices of salami that we had purchased at the deli. Then, we rushed home so I could eat.
Meal 3: 1 Red 2 Yellow 1 Tsp
2 Pieces Toast
Meal 4: 1 Green 1 Red 1 Yellow 2 Tsp
Totals for the day:
1 Green (short 4 – ya, that’s not very good)
2 Purple (short 1)
4 Red (short 1)
3.5 Yellow (short .5)
3 Tsp (short 2)
Workout: Gym Time with Maggie and Yoga Fix (30 min vide0)
It was great to be back in the gym sweating it out, even if I was watching Germany totally destroy their opponent on the soccer field. I realized that I missed the hard sweat I could get from the elliptical. In addition, I didn’t have to watch my knees the whole time I was working out. So much of the 21 Day Fix routines are high impact, and I just can’t do those fully yet (or maybe ever) because I’ve got such weak knees. So, Mags and I had a good workout at the gym. Then, since my muscles were nice and warmed up, we came home and I did the yoga video (Maggie declined). It felt awesome to stretch everything out.
- Sundays are going to be the hardest day for me. I’ve got to prepare better.
- I’ve been avoiding the gym because I didn’t want to overwork my body, but the five months of hitting the cardio machines almost every day has made my body stronger than I realized. I can do both the gym and the videos, just a in a combination that won’t tax me.
