8:00 am Breakfast
So, I made do with 2 eggs, an apple and 3/4 of a yellow container of sweet potatoes that were leftover in my fridge from the day before we left.
Why the 3/4 yellow container, you ask? Later today I plan on using 4 oz of almond milk to make shakeology. You can substitute 16 oz of almond milk for one yellow container and since I don't really need 16 oz, I'm using 1/4 of a yellow container for my shakeology and 3/4 this morning. #MathIsFun

|I couldn't resist - looks like a face. :)|
Yam - 3/4 container
Looking at the apple whole I wasn't sure if it would fit into a purple container once cut up, but it did! I was pretty excited about that because I would have been less than thrilled if I had to eat just part of an apple this
I stopped at Wegmans after Zumba to do a quick shopping trip to make sure we had some veggies and fruits to choose from. I had some leftovers to eat up though in the fridge that I could make work for today so I decided to do that. I didn't take a picture of my lunch because, well, it wasn't pretty, haha. I made a chicken salad with avocado and tahini and the avocado was all brown and icky and though it still tasted great, it was ugly leftover so I spared you the picture of that. Instead I took a picture of what containers I used for lunch. :)
leftover chicken salad:
tahini (ground sesame seeds) 1/2 container
lettuce and tomato cut up and combined
dressing (21 day fix approved) 1/2 container
Coffee with 1 tbsp coconut milk - I really wanted something sweet and this took the edge off.
So today was kind of weird for me. Normally I need a morning snack before a noon workout, but today I felt ok. But after lunch, I was still hungry. So even though I would normally eat a later dinner after having lunch at 2:00, I really was hungry at 5 and since I was heading back to Bounce for another class at 6:30, I decided to have an early dinner and then have a snack later on.

|Now it does!|
chicken (leftover baked)
spaghetti squash with lemon
leftover roasted broccoli
carrot sticks (not pictured)
I would normally add a little butter and Parmesan cheese to the spaghetti squash, but it was really good with just some fresh lemon juice!
6:30 Workout = 60 minutes Red Warrior Class at Bounce
Ok listen. I've never ever been a "shake" person. Like, ever. I just have never seen the appeal to drinking your food as opposed to eating your food. I'm giving shakeology a try while doing this challenge for a couple of reasons. 1. It will help me bump up my 4th red container without having to eat 4 meals of chicken. 2. It tastes good - it's like a natural healthy dessert! 3. It's SUPER easy.
So we'll see how it goes!
1 package of chocolate shakeology
1/2 frozen banana
1 tsp almond butter
4 oz almond milk - 1/4 container
4 oz water
Some additional notes:
- I plan on incorporating the 21 day fix workouts every day no matter if I get to Bounce that day or not, but since today was going to be the cardio workout and I went to Bounce twice, I decided to not do the fix workout in addition for today.
- I only did 1 tsp of oil/almond butter today because the leftover yams and broccoli had olive oil on them when I roasted them. Since I really can't be sure how much there was in my serving, I decided to play it safe and only use 1 tsp of the almond butter instead of the normal 2 that I plan on having. :)
Are you doing the fix right now? How are you doing? Please feel free to share any tips or comments below!
