Back in March, I received the 21-Day Fix. I was super excited to get started and see how easy it really is to use. I was not disappointed! It really is super easy to use and the workouts are challenging, but effective!
This week, I decided to do another round. I have a vacation coming up in July and still feel I need to a little extra "oomph" to get back into shape. I'm not where I was last summer and that makes me sad -- but it's my own fault. Just sheer laziness on my part. But the good news is that I KNOW it can be done, because I DID IT BEFORE! I know I can do it again!
I did a lot of prep work this time around too. I went shopping at my local Sprouts Market, stocking up on good, healthy foods -- fruits, veggies, lean meats.
I took all my fruit, cut it up and made individual fruit baggies for my Shakeology. I used the purple container to make sure that I was getting the right portion size too.
With the leftover orange I had, I cut it up into a pitcher of water.....squeezing in some juice from the orange too. So YUMMY!
The one thing I love about the 21-Day Fix is the color-coded container system. It really makes it easy to portion control! And since I'm a visual person, this really help me a lot. To help me a little more, I color-code my meal plan too.....but then I added an extra layer. I have a magnet board hanging in my kitchen. So I took some magnets and colored them to match the container system. It makes it easy for me to see how many containers I have left after each meal.
