I can’t tell you how excited I am to get started with the 21 Day Fix. This isn’t my first time, but it’s been a while. This is the program that made me fall in love with Beachbody programs. I love everything about it… the nutrition plan and the workouts.
For the next 21 days I am committed to doing all the scheduled workouts without missing a day and I’m committed to following the meal plan 100%.
So are you wondering what this is all about? Well…. there are 7 different workouts to do each week for 3 weeks. The workouts consist of cardio, weights, yoga and pilates and the best part is they are only about 30 minutes long! Time is not an excuse with this workout plan! I challenge you to tell me that you honestly can’t find 30 minutes each day to get your fitness on.
Not only do you have the fitness plan, there is also a super easy to follow nutrition plan that keeps you full, satisfied and happy. Over the last couple years I have followed mostly low carb meal plans, and this plan has carbs, so it scares me a little bit. But I’m going to give it a chance and follow it as written and see what kind of amazing results I get.
So the nutrition plan is based on containers and portion control. I’m currently following meal plan B, which is 1500-1799 calories a day, which equals the following containers:
Red (protein) = 4
Green (veggies) = 4
Purple (fruit) = 3
Yellow (carbs) = 3
Blue (healthy fat) = 1
Orange (seeds, dressings) = 1
Tsp (oils & nut butters) = 4
I’m also allowed 3 treats a week and wine! Yep you read that right…. wine! So instead of thinking of a cheat day or a cheat meal, you aren’t cheating if you have a treat. I think that is pretty cool. I struggle a lot with the mental part of “dieting”, so I’m not “dieting”, I’m eating healthy and following a healthy meal plan and I’m not having cheat meals or cheat days.
Over the next 21 days I will be an open book, I will be honest and share my struggles and my successes. I have two goals with being an open book, one is to hold myself accountable and the other is to hopefully help others on their health journey.
