Some of you know that I've been doing the 21 day fix over the last few weeks. One of my new year's resolutions was to be more aware of what I have been putting in my body, and this was a great way for me to kick that into high gear. I'm entering my last week of the program and let me tell you, it was an adjustment. I've never been an unhealthy eater, but re-thinking how I portion things out and trying to really focus on getting veggies in was a struggle.
Call me a child, but I HATE VEGETABLES. I HATE THEM. I have to literally force myself to eat them. If I could just eat cheese and bread for the rest of my life, I would. Buuuuuut that's probably not the smartest choice for myself. :)
The workouts have also been a good combination of fun and challenging. I love Autumn's style--she seems very approachable. I like to work up a sweat when I'm doing stuff like this or else I don't think it's worth it; you really sweat with these workouts.
I'll let you know my thoughts when I've finished the program in it's entirety, but so far, so good. I'm not a Beachbody coach, so I'm not coming from any other angle other than to share my experience. Until then, here's what I made for lunches and snacks this week!
Snack 1: Honeycrisp apple (good LORD the best apple there is)--1 purple
Lunch: Taco Salad
-ground beef (96% lean)--1 red
-tomato sauce--1/4 purple
-baby spinach--1/2 green
-homemade tortilla chip bits--1/4 yellow
Snack 2: Baby carrots--1 green
I make my tortilla chips by cutting corn tortillas into triangles and sticking them in the oven at 400 degrees with a bit of olive oil for 1 minutes. I'm all about making things as easy as possible on myself during the week or else I'll cave and go to Chipotle, Noodles or a coffee place near my work. We will see how this week goes!
