It’s been quite a while since I’ve done an official What I Ate Wednesday post so I figured what better time to do one than in the middle of my 21DayFix. You can read more on the Fix and join me in a challenge by purchasing the kit here.
Thanks so much to Jen for hosting What I Ate Wednesday and you can check out so many more posts from other blogs on her blog. Now onto my meals. This is what I ate during a typical day of the 21DayFix!
Sweet potatoes with unsweetened coconut flakes, and cinnamon. 1 Yellow and 1 Orange
Spaghetti squash with diced tomatoes, 1 chicken burger, and parmesan. 2 Greens, 1 Red, and 1 Blue
Shakeology mixed with water and ice. 1 Red
2 eggs and butternut squash with a gluten free tortilla. 1 Red, 1 Green, and 1 Yellow
Protein shake with whey protein and frozen strawberries. Apple slices on the side. 1 Red, 2 Purples
So far I am really loving the 21DayFix and am having great results. I feel satisfied all day long and it is just easy! I currently have a couple upcoming challenge groups that will be going through the 21DayFix together and if you’re interested I’d love to have you join me. Feel free to send me any questions, or let me know you want in by commenting below or sending me an email to [email protected]
I’m so excited to share this program with all of you! I found out about the 21DayFix way back in January and was instantly excited. Not only is the founder a former dancer (bonus points in my book) but she is also a personal trainer who discovered her clients were getting stuck on their weight loss journeys because they were eating all the right foods in way excess portions. She created the 21DayFix as a solution. It is a portion controlled nutrition system along with simple workouts that deliver huge results in 21 days!

Now, I’m so excited to take you on my journey while I go through the 21DayFix nutrition plan myself. First step is preparation so here is how I prepared for my first week on the Fix.
Reading through the information – This was key in understanding the program. I read through all the information provided a few times and have since gone back many times to review it. I made sure to calculate my calorie needs and figure out how many containers I would be having per day.
Planning my workouts for the week – The next step for me was setting up a workout schedule. While I will be doing the 21 Day Fix workouts on occasion, I am focusing more on the nutrition plan and still keeping up with my regular CrossFit workouts and skill work. This still means I spent time planning out when I would be attending CrossFit and what times, I would be adding in extra workouts including the 21DayFix and T25 for extra cardio. For me, if I don’t schedule it, it won’t happen.
Meal Plan – I started planning out my nutrition by figuring out how many containers I would get per day. Once I figured this out, I planned which meals I would use these containers at and then from there figured out what I would eat on each day.
Here is what one planned day looked like:
Sweet potatoes with 2 tsp. peanut butter
2 eggs with 1-cup broccoli, 1 apple, peanuts
Lean ground turkey with zucchini, bell pepper, and black beans, topped with ¼ avocado – seasoned with lime juice and spices
Protein shake with strawberries
Grocery Shop – The next step was to grocery shop on Saturday for everything I would need according to my plan. Here is my list for the week:
Meal Prep – Sunday meal prep happens next. For this week it meant cooking ahead…
Track Throughout the Week – To keep myself on track for the week, I made sure to print out plenty of sheets to track my containers throughout the week and assure, I don’t go over.
Measurements and Benchmarks – Lastly before starting I made sure to take my weight and also measurements and progress pictures. Why? Because the scale is not always the most accurate measure. So many factors can affect our weigh on a day to day basis so it is important to rely on other trackers like measurements, pictures, and how your clothes fit… before pictures to come, I promise 😉
