Learning to Relearn

First off, thanks to those that had encouraging comments!  Posting before pictures is really hard to begin with...let alone on a public forum.  But real is real....and the afters will be worth the journey!

I made excuses like everyone...

I have 6 kids I don't have time
I have to feed everyone else I don't want to make 2 meals
I like my food
I'm too tired to work out with all I do
The excuses kept coming

Having to take a good look at how I have been eating the past 5 years is a huge eye opener.  I really just ate what I liked when I wanted it.  But with having 3 additional kids in a 4 year period and aging....(shock)  my body doesn't respond like it used to

The past 6 weeks I cut out horrible nasty processed foods and ate great

These next 3 weeks on the 21 Day Fix I am eating smaller portions but more often.  Which is huge for me.  I'm a 3 big meals 1 snack a day girl and NEVER after dinner.  So I'm having to learn how to eat to fuel my body!

Monday I had my little containers all mapped out with what I would eat

Each day I get 

3 green containers (your veggies)
2 purple (your fruits)
4 red (protein)
2 yellow (starches)
1 blue (cheeses or nuts)
1 orange (seeds or dressings)
1 tsp (nut butters or chocolate chips)

Here is what I ate on Monday

Here is Tuesday 

(yes had a shake and same lunch again....)

I'm trying really hard to not cheat on this meal plan.  But

There is always a but

I still want my coffee I have cut my cup in half and my creamer (which is a no no) in half too...which basically is enough to wet my whistle and that is enough

The work outs are intense.  Well for me since I'm so out of shape.  All I can say is THANK GOODNESS THESE ARE ONLY ONCE A WEEK. 

There are enough workouts for the entire week and then repeat for 21 days.

I have to modify a bunch and a few times stop...I'm hoping by the end of this I have few modifications and zero stops!!!

Want more info ...shoot me an email or click the link 21 Day Fix

This is great! I like the color coordinating Tupperware for your meals! Meal planning is hard and I couldn't imagine it with all the kiddies but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

I don't know how I missed your post yesterday. You are one brave woman, and I especially can't believe the difference in the side view. Wow, girl! You keep going! I feel like I'm having to reteach myself how to eat lately as well. It sucks! Keep strong!
