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. 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:
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!
