Day 7 of the 21 Day Fix

Still going strong with the 21 Day Fix!  The workouts are fun, challenging, but not scary hard…yoga was today and as I mentioned in the video, I’m picky with yoga!  But I really enjoyed it.  And another day of a great amount of food!  It really has been helping me to make good choices and fill up on the healthy stuff instead of grazing on poorer choices.  I had become so used to eating for convenience!  This is so much better.

Hope you are having a great day!

21 Day Fix – Day 6

Another video!

Yesterday, I was trying to figure out a good way to log my 21 Day Fix containers on my phone and came up with this…using my to-do app for my food!

 

21 Day Fix to do

The app Awesome Note has folders to organize your lists.  So I made one for the 21 Day Fix and put my containers in there, set to repeat each day so I don’t need to put them in every day.  Then I just check them off as I eat them!  Easy 🙂

Today’s workout was Dirty 30, a mix of cardio and strength, mostly together in each move.  Tough, and a great workout.  It recommends two sets of weights, but I used 3.  They use light and heavy, but I used medium on one exercise.  Light would have still been a challenge though!  I’m excited for Yoga Fix tomorrow…you know I love my yoga!

In other news, we had a busy morning with baby Zumba, Gymboree and introducing the baby to some reptiles.  It was the first time for baby Zumba and it was a lot of fun!  I think we’ll go more often.  Gymboree is okay, but I just don’t feel like there’s much playing together.  At baby Zumba, they danced together and were more in a group.  Fun stuff!

Play time at Gymboree

Who’s off tomorrow?  I’m definitely glad to have the long weekend this week!

Already missing a video day!

I chose a shower over making a video today.  Sorry 🙂 It was worth it!

I can still report on day 5 though.  I did the Total Body Cardio Fix workout because I did Cardio Fix Tuesday.  I really liked it, and was glad that Autumn mentioned that the first exercise was the hardest of the workout because it was tough!  I also did my first treats today…I’m about to have a glass of wine!  I am looking forward to it.

I made a great dinner also.  Cucumbers and tomatoes with hummus and salmon over spinach…delicious and filling!  I have been having my blue container earlier in the day, but this was really good for dinner.

I still haven’t had much of a hunger issue.  It is amazing how much food you can fit into a day when you make good choices!  Whether I continue on for another round of the 21 Day Fix or I decide to change up the nutrition after, I think I’m (re)learning good habits, which has been my goal all along.  Already, I am being a less lazy meal preparer and enjoying the results of my slightly extra effort.  I think it has seemed like a lot more work than it has been!

Going out to dinner on the 21 Day Fix

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Did you celebrate?  We decided to go out to dinner, but I still managed to stay within my 21 Day Fix container count!

Greenberry Shakeology Balls

When I found a bunch of Shakeology  the other day, some was Greenberry.  I take that back.  A good amount was greenberry!  So I went searching for some Greenberry recipes to try.  I really like the chocolate Shakeology balls because they’re quick to make and a good bite size snack.  So I made Greenberry ones!  I think I may tweak them a bit next time.  They were good, but a little sweeter than I’d love.    Here is what i did this time…

Greenberry Shakeology Balls

1 packet Greenberry Shakeology
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup ground flaxseeds
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup natural honey

Add all ingredients to bowl and mix well.  I made 15 balls that were a good size (similar to the size of my chocolate ones that make 12 in the recipe).  Freeze and enjoy!
