21 Day Fix {Week One Calendar}

I hopped on my scale the day after Christmas and it was BAD. To be fair, I knew I wasn’t going to like what I saw. My clothes had been getting ridiculously tight, selfies were mush less flattering, and I was pretty much eating 24/7. Even though I was tempted to wait until after the New Year, I knew it was time to get back on the healthy eating wagon that day. I signed up for a DietBet and brought out my 21 Day Fix containers. It has been a full week, and I’m happy to say that even after going out to eat on New Year’s Eve and attacking a Sicilian pizza last night, I am still down 5 pounds after the first 7 days.

I know from experience that prepping for the 21 Day Fix can be a massive undertaking. I was overwhelmed by the colors and making sure I could get all of my containers into my daily diet. At one point my husband asked me if I could prep for him. Ummmm. No. I can barely prep for myself.

After playing around with a few different organization methods, I decided that creating a meal prep calendar is what works best for me. Today, I’m going to share my Week One Calendar with all of you. There are definitely a few mistakes that I found along the way, but I think this is a great way to visualize your day on the program. ScreenHunter_83 Jan. 02 12.07 And just in case you can’t read that super tiny writing, click here to view the calendar in Google Drive.

Here are the recipes that I used during Week One:

Oven Fajitas from BudgetBytes
Chicken and Mushroom Marsala from 21 Day Fixins
Cheese and Chicken Quesadilla from 21 Day Fixins

Week One was a pretty good experience. I do get HANGRY if I don’t eat every couple of hours though, but hopefully that will get better as my stomach shrinks. Also, I started drinking 100 ounces of water a day. (I want to be really well hydrated for half marathon training.) Maybe it’s mental, but it seems to be helping with bloat and I feel like I look slimmer in my stomach.

Hopefully this will help you plan your 21 Day Fix. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions and good luck!
