21 Day Fix Extreme Day 1

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 ┬ádecided 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.
