Today marks day one of the 21 Day Fix Extreme. I just finished the 21 Day Fix, though I was not consistent with the work outs everyday or with following the nutrition plan perfectly. I’ve decided to commit to the 21 day fix extreme workouts for the next 21 days and follow the nutrition as best as I can given that it is the holiday season. I’m going to blog daily my thoughts as I go through this program.
After day one, I feel great. I’m in the 1,500 – 1,700 calorie bracket given my activity during the day (teaching) and I am training for a half marathon so I need a few extra calories. It’s amazing how much food this is! I still have dinner (1 red, 1 1/2 greens, 1 carbs) as well as fruit and 2 teaspoons of almond butter for dessert and it is already 8 pm.
In terms of the work out, today was PLYO FIX and holy difficult! You are supposed to use both light and heavy weights but I only used my light weights. I’m hoping I’ll be able to use the heavy weights next week. I also went for a 30 minute run today. Given the doubling of workouts, I did use Beachbody Energize and Refuel and plan to use Recharge tonight. Day 2 work out has to be an AM workout so I need to make sure I’m ready for that 6 am work out.
This is a picture of my lunch/dinner (Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet) with a serving of steamed veggies! Way more delicious than I imagined.
