21 Day Fix - Round 2

I've reached what should have been the end of round 2 of the 21 day fix, and here are my thoughts.


Workouts
I got WAY too bored with the workouts, and started mixing it up by week 2.

Meal Plan
 It was really hard to actually measure with the containers this time around.  I think it had to do with my current season of life, in January the baby was on a more consistent eat, sleep, nap schedule. Right now, we are working on a bunch of teeth and other huge milestones (like walking) so her sleep has been really rough the last couple of weeks.

Additionally, my middle daughter is working on some molars.

So, planning the meals just was really rough.

Container Eating
Even though I didn't plan out my colors every day and track them very well, I did  make sure to portion control myself. I always tried to eat more veggies then anything else and watched my dairy intake.

Lessons Learned

  1. Portion Control is key to success! 
  2. 20-30 minute workouts are effective and go by faster than you think. 
Round 2 Results
  • 8 inches gone
  • better understanding of how to portion control in daily life 

Final Thoughts 
The 21 Day Fix is a great program for kick starting your healthy eating and weight loss. However, for someone like me who just struggles SO much with doing the same scheduled workouts it can be extremely hard to stick to the program. Having said that, it is one of the reasons I just can't commit to purchasing another BB program right now, perhaps the on demand would be a good option for me... but we will have to wait on that. 



Question of the day: What's your favorite mix-ins for a salad?
