21 Day Fix Round 1 Results

I am so thrilled by how this program works! In just 20 days I lost over five total inches and 10 pounds. I worked out daily according to the 21 Day Fix plan for 30 minutes and followed the food program. At first the program was somewhat difficult because I have never really been into measuring my food, however, it’s super simple. I can eat most everything that I want and I have now changed (somewhat, still working on this) my way of thinking about food – eating to fuel my body rather than dreaming about the amazing dinner I am going to eat while eating lunch, LOLZ. That alone has helped me lose weight.

Inches lost in 20 days:
Chest: 1/2 in
Waist: 3.5 in
Arms: 1.25 in
Thighs: 1 in
Calf: .1/2 in
Hips: 1 in
Weight: lost 10 pounds
If you are on the fence about starting this program, then make the leap and just do it because these results don’t lie. I already feel stronger and happier in just my fourth week! Finding balance is HUGE and definitely the key to success. With my crazy busy schedule with work, home-life, writing, exercising, my dog, and social life, I have had to find foods that I don’t get sick of, that are still compliant with the program and do not take forever to make or measure. Here is what I go-to:
Breakfast:
  • egg muffins (11 eggs makes a dozen “muffins” and you can add whatever greens, veggies, or protein to it you want!)
  • shakeo drink – chocolate vegan with PB2 (that’s a peanut butter powder with very little calories)
Lunch: 
  • Veggie stir fry with sugar snap peas, carrots, mushrooms, and bell peppers
  • Spinach salad with apple, cucumber, red onion, cilantro and a champagne vinaigrette with a little olive oil
  • Chicken salad with homemade aioli on romaine

Dinner: 

  • TACOS!! I eat veggie tacos almost every night if I have not eaten my blue yet (that’s healthy fat) which I usually save it for this. I use gluten free corn tortillas, tons of fresh tomatoes, and a ton of fresh cilantro with a squeeze of lime. Add lettuce, chicken, beef, beans, whatever you’d like, just measure your containers before you build! Two corn tortillas is 1 yellow container, I use about 2 greens then 1 blue for my tacos nightly
  • Spinach salad with roasted sweet potatoes, grilled beef and a fried egg on top
  • Seared ahi tuna, leafy lettuce, cucumber, radish, tomatoes and quinoa
  • Zucchini noodles with shrimp and a garlic olive oil drizzle
  • Taco salad with grilled chicken, corn, romaine, olive, cilantro, tomato, and lime

Snacks: 

  • Non-fat plain yogurt with peaches
  • Hummus and apple
  • Veggies with a creamy non-fat yogurt dressing/dip
  • Cucumbers and roasted beet salad
  • Sauteed Brussels sprouts with coconut nectar ( a maple syrup substitute)

I try to stay away from things that won’t satisfy me like the avocado, even though I LOVE avocados, I can only ave 1/4 in a day, so why bother? Fresh veggies, loads of fresh herbs, eggs, and roasted meats and vegetables are the way to go!
