Well, I listened to my own advice from yesterday about really doing what you love when working out. I’m training for another half marathon so today it was my long run day (5 miles). Rather than also doing 21 Day Fix, I allowed myself to just run. I knew I wouldn’t enjoy doing 21 Day Fix Cardio Extreme today with the run so it was important for me on my fitness journey to do what makes me happy for long term fitness gains.
That being said, its Sunday and I know the importance of the meal planning and meal prep on Sundays. This is something I am not consistent with but knowing what I’m eating for each meal, not only saves me time each day, but it also holds me accountable. I am not going to go for an extra snack for example if it is not on my meal plan or I’m not going to add cheese to dinner since I already have my blue container for another meal for instance.
Below is my meal plan for the week. On the 21 Day Fix I stay within the 1,500 – 1,700 calorie bracket because I’m active throughout the day and I run 3 times a week. With this, I’m allowed 4 veggies, 3 fruits, 4 proteins, 3 carbs, 1 healthy fat, 1 seed, and 4 teaspoons of oils.
