My 21 Day Fix Challenge Week 2


I am pumped to start Week 2 of 21 Day Fix tomorrow. I will measure myself tomorrow morning to see where I’m at, but on day 4 I lost 1 lb. That may not seem significant, but when I got to week 9 of Mutu, I hit a plateau so it was nice to be able to break that.
For my Diastasis Recti friends- 21 Day Fix does have at least 10 minutes of traditional ab exercises in most of the videos. The exercises are awesome and simple and effective, but a strong core is very necessary in order to do it effectively (not just going through the motion). I definitely recommend the program! Just wait until your core is nice and strong.
I planned out my meals for Week 1 in advance, but I didn’t anticipate running out of some of it for Sunday. Living in Mexico has a couple of quirks- one of them being that the spinach & lettuce isn’t fresh and may not last long. So I’m starting a new week beginning on Sunday. If you want to see my meal plan for week 1 click here. For week 2, I decided to leave my comfort zone and change it up a little bit. I used the meal plan from the Beachbody website. I honestly hadn’t used it that much before, but I love that it tells me that I’ve met all my nutrition needs for the day (or it will tell me I have too much cholestorol, etc- so at that point I adjusted my meal plan).

The containers used in 21 Day Fix seem small at first- but when I then pour it into a bowl or a plate- it’s so much bigger. It’s been a good way for me to learn to get an idea of how much of what I should be eating. Here is an example: I’m allowed 3 green containers a day and this would be 2 containers.
