I'm officially more than halfway through my first week on the 21 Day Fix. If you read my post on Tuesday, then you're already familiar with the basic idea of the program. If you haven't had a chance to read it yet, go check it out so you know what I'm talking about in this post.
When I weighed myself this morning I had already lost a little over 4 pounds since Tuesday. I knew the program gave good results, but that's even better than I expected! I won't plan on losing a pound every day, but at this rate I'm already well into the 10-15 pounds they say you can typically lose during the 21 days. Needless to say, I'm definitely happy with my results so far!
Today I actually took a rest day from the workouts, even though the schedule said to do the cardio workout today. I felt like I needed a break and decided that I would let myself off the hook without beating myself up about it. I'll just get right back into it tomorrow and be back on track.
Also, I went to lunch today with some co-workers. I think I did really well by ordering the tofu & vegetables with brown rice. All I needed to do was choose items that were plan approved and deduct those items from the corresponding containers I had allotted for today. Even with a big lunch, I still have plenty of food I am allowed for the rest of the day, which is one of the main reasons I really like the 21 Day Fix.
One of the other great parts of this program is that I'm signed up for Shakeology, which is a superfood shake that can be used as a meal replacement. The box says it's the "healthiest meal of the day". Regardless of how healthy it is for you, I'm a huge fan of the taste. I've had other shakes that taste chalky and gross, so I was a little worried about how these would taste.
For my first month I signed up for the multi-pack with chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. The strawberry was just okay but I absolutely love the chocolate one. I already switched my auto-shipment for next month to a be a 30-serving bag of the chocolate flavor. It tastes amazing blended with half a frozen banana and a tablespoon of peanut butter! I haven't noticed any health benefits from Shakeology yet, but I'll keep you posted on my results as I continue to drink them.
So, that's how I've been doing so far on the 21 Day Fix. In my next update I'll be sharing what I eat in a typical day, so stay tuned for more if you're curious to see what the eating plan looks like.
