21 Day Fix Journal | Days 4-10

This post is my days 4-10 on my 21 day fix extreme journey. It's not pretty, it's not perfect, but at least it's honest. Check out my post for Days 1-3 and my pre 21 day fix post.

Day 4 11/4

Breakfast- 2 eggs, 1 slice wg toast (1 red, 1 yellow)
Lunch-Casserole from previous post (1 red, 1 blue, 1 yellow, 1 green)
Dinner- Turkey "meatloaf" balls and baby carrots (1 red, 2 green)
Snack- Protein shake w/ peanut butter powder (1 red)
Snack-Grapes (1 purple)
Snack-Apple & peanut butter (1 purple, 1 tablespoon)

I think I'm really getting the hang of this! I've did really good today, I'm memorizing the colors and sizes of the containers so I don't have to keep going to look. I did have an emergency this morning- I ran out of turkey bacon!! It is one of my favorites so I had to go to Wal Mart and get more.  My only complaint is that I had to go to the grocery store again and I feel like this is running into a lot of money. It shouldn't be more expensive to eat healthy, am I right??

Today's workout was upper fix extreme. I have never had my shoulder muscles feel so sore! When you hear someone say, "I feel sore in places I didn't know was possible.." haha that's totally me right now. Under my shoulder blades hurt, is that a thing?? I have lower fix tomorrow, BUT I am going to be gone all day at my daughter's play off games and when I get home I have to work 6-12pm and I'm hoping I won't be late for that! The game starts at 2pm and it's 2 hrs away...ughhh. We'll see how that goes with what I'm going to eat too. Pray for me, y'all!

Day 8 11/8

It's election day, y'all and I'm voting for carbs! So, it's been a few days since I've posted.. 1, 2 skip a few I know :) Day 5 turned into a cheat day. There is no cheating allowed on this diet and I don't recommend it, but it just happened. I won't go into details but I regret nothing! I have NOT skipped a workout day so yay for that. Yesterday I had my 7 day weigh in and measurements. I had only lost 1lb so that was pretty discouraging (right after I said I had a cheat day, I know). BUT, I had lost inches or half inches in a few place, so that was great. I made some turkey chili last night to last a couple of days and I made some turkey taco meat to but in my wraps. My booty has been and still is so sore, I hope that sucker is getting lifted. I did super good yesterday, I feel like I wasn't hungry much or craving anything. This morning I even separated out the Halloween candy and I didn't eat any of it. Yayyy me! I was thinking I started on a Monday, but it was actually Tuesday so I'm doing cardio extreme today. Just a bit of info- I'm using a medium tension band when I workout. 5lbs for my light weights and 10lbs for my heavy. On some of the workouts when heavy is suggested and I just can't do it, I use the light.


Day 10 11/10

When I write these posts I feel like I'm being really whiny but inside I am trying to complete this and I don't know why it's SO hard for me. The diet is expensive and time consuming, even when you do meal prep. Is it possible? Of course it is, I think anything is if you really want it. But, I am trying to be honest and that's how I feel about it. My, friend has been doing it for 3 months and just loves it to death-so I guess it's just not for everyone. The workouts on the other hand, I really like. They are challenging and leave me sore every time. They only last 30min, and I think everyone has 30min. I was out running around all day today because my hubby & I both had the day off, then my daughter had a thing at school. When I got home I had 1hr before work and I was able to get my workout in, I was pretty proud!
