I wanted to share a quick update on my 21 Day Fix journey. I am on my last week. I have not lost tons of weight, just 3 pounds, but I love, love, love the workouts and the eating plan! The workouts are just 30 min long and there is a workout schedule to follow, so you know what to do on what day. The workouts are varied enough, that I never feel bored. There is enough weight lifting in the workouts, to keep me happy (and toned) and I love being able to mix it up with Pilates Fix and Yoga Fix. And, an added bonus, is that I still have enough time (and energy) to run if I want.

But, what I am most impressed about is the eating plan. This is NOT a diet, it is a lifestyle change and a way of life. The eating plan teaches portion control. How it works is that you calculate the amount of calories you should be eating each day (taking into account that you are burning calories AND you want a calorie deficit to lose weight). Once that is calculated, there is a handy chart to look at to determine how many of each container you can have each day.
There is a list of quality food choices for each container AND great recipe ideas. At first, I thought I would be hungry, but I have not been hungry at all. The meals can be as simple as this . . .
and this . . .
Or, you can make them more complex, like this . . . .
As a woman who struggles with portion control, and a personal trainer who knows that portion control and healthy eating is really a struggle for so many women, I think this program can be the perfect answer for so many women (and men). It is simple and it lays nutrition and exercise out in an easy to follow way.
I am still running a challenge group for this and anyone can join! Although the basic workout is still on backorder, the Challenge pack (with Shakeology) is in stock and ready to ship. There is free shipping the rest of this month! If you are interested, you can order here. All money I make from the sales will go directly to our adoption fund!
