Happy Monday! So if you didn't know Philip and I are going to Hawaii in April. So I decided that I wanted to get beach ready. I figured the best way to do this was to make an investment and have a plan. My friend Paula is a Beachboy coach and she has had some amazing results with The Beachboy program so I talked to her and I decided to join a 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack.
So the 21 Day Challenge Pack came in the mail and this is what I got! Colored containers in various sizes that represent portion sizes.
Each color represents a different food group that we can eat. Green is veggies, Purple is fruit, Red is protein, Yellow is carbs, Blue is dairy & fats, Orange is dressings and seeds.
Philip and I did this little equation to figure out how many calories/ portions we can have each day. He gets more of all of them than I do. Because he's a boy.
I also got the Shakeology powder. Shakeology is an all natural meal replacement protein powder.
Along with following the meal plan participants have to work out everyday. The workouts are about 30 minutes each. From what I have heard they are pretty intense too.
So not only do I want to get more beach ready but I need to work on my eating habits. I eat super, super unhealthy! I mean, it's bad. So I am hoping I can do the full 21 days and then it will help me eat healthy long term. I have never kept to a diet or healthy eating plan more than 2 days. Ever. My self control is pretty much 0. I have the restraint of a toddler. Add that to the fact that I can't cook and it equals a lot of pizza.
Everything I have read about the 21 Day Fix is preparation. So Friday night Philip and I spent about 2 hours making a meal plan for the week. I found this awesome excel spreadsheet!! It is so awesome! I tweaked it slightly but it made it easy to track.
The hardest part was coming up with meal ideas. Once we got the ideas it was pretty easy. Then on Saturday I went grocery shopping and got lots of containers so I can cook meals ahead of time. Since we both don't work on Monday my plan is to cook as much as I can to set myself up to win.
