I am starting the 21 Day Fix this week. This is forcing me to really plan my meals for the day and week. I usually plan dinner for the week, but rarely anything I (or the boys) eat during the day.
Preparing and planning for the 21 Day Fix has given me a huge appreciation and understanding for those who count calories. Although this program does not count calories, it does measure your food using the color coded containers. I have found this nutrition program to be pretty simple and straight forward… with some planning.
I am starting this program today, and four meals into my day, I am loving it. I am not hungry and I feel that my mood/energy is stabilized. No HANGRY mama running around.
If you are curious what I will be eating this week, you can check out my meal plan below. This is subject to change as I grow comfortable with the program and colored containers. Also, life does happen so who knows what will be thrown in the dinner mix for tonight’s small group dinner gathering.

21 Day Fix Fitness Program Review: Cardio Fix
The fitness program is totally doable for all fitness levels. If you are wanting to get up off the couch and start your fitness journey… to those who are wanting to challenge themselves with something new. This program is for you.
I did the Cardio Fix this morning and was super impressed that the people in the video look like real people! They do not look like those super buff and intimidating already super strong and skinny people you see on most fitness videos. Autumn even looks real with her strong legs. I was very happy to see this unique touch to the fitness program.
I also want to touch that this has what I would call a perfect modifier to follow if you are just starting out! Most fitness videos give you the option to modify, while it still being a challenge. This workout program has a modifier that is truly a modifier. Do what you can… how you can… when you can! Do your best!
I was a sweaty mess when I completed my workout. You work hard for 1 minute and rest for 20 seconds. You continue this pattern throughout the 30 minute workout. I am impressed.
