Today is our day!! It’s Monday! The sun is shining and my hubby and I decided yesterday to take the next 21 days and key in on our workouts and nutrition with the 21 Day Fix program and meal plan! We want to take you on it with us! We have a lot of summer traveling planned and want to feel and look our best this summer!! I have a speaking engagement at the end of July as well as a few other events in between now and then! We will be traveling to visit family and we are also taking our kids on a couple of weekend beach getaways too! I am going to be kicking off my newest support & accountability group on summer survival with fitness and nutrition which will really help many of these ladies lose the last 10 lbs using the 21 Day Fix/ Fix Extreme Program & Countdown To Competition Eating Plan!! I am excited to lead them on the path to success! My mission is to always lead by example! So here we go!! We can never be ‘too dialed in’ on our nutrition! That’s for sure!
When it comes to losing the last 10 pounds it takes a little bit of dedication, commitment and sacrifice. It is like those last 10 stick to you like GLUE!!! You have to get a little strict to get the results but once you get there it is pretty easy to maintain as long as you don’t go all haywire and back to your old habits. So while I will say that I do not have 10 lbs to lose I do want to get rid of the bloating that I get when I eat dairy, processed flour and cheeses. I just want to feel my best and be confident on our vacations this summer and just to be my best self!!! So I am doing the 21 Day Fix meal plan with a little countdown to competition added in to get the best results I can in 21 days!
So you can follow me on this journey with my hubby over the next 21 days as we deliver the good, the bad and the ugly! Be sure that you are following me over at Val B Fitness on FB too! Daily motivation and inspiration as well as the goofy stuff we do!
Yesterday I sat down and made up my meal plan following the 21 Day Fix Extreme, Countdown To Competition plan. I fall in the first bracket of calories, 1,200-1,499 calories per day.
This means that I have 2 days of countdown to competition days and 1 day of regular extreme eating and you rotate that for the entire 21 days.
On my countdown to competition days I get:
Green = 3
Purple = 0
So basically veggies, proteins, & good fats with lots of water!!!
On my Fix Extreme Days I get to eat:
Green = 3
Purple = 2
Red = 4
Yellow = 2
Blue = 1
Orange = 1
Spoon = 2
It’s really not that bad at all and the best part is really the fact that it’s only 21 days- I will cut the cravings, I will lose a few pounds, tighten, tone and be ready to move forward on a better note than I am now! Because I have been having way too many sweet treats and extra helpings of food!
I will be hungry sometimes- of course because I am always hungry! Like seriously guys- I just love to eat and it can get bad if I’m not checking myself!! But when I set my mind to it I can do anything!
A few things!! 1. GREEN TEA!! It honestly does work- it staves off the hunger until my next meal. 2. Drink lots of water. At least 1/2 of your body weight in ounces. Most of the time- we are thirsty over being hungry!! And 3. I deal with the hunger because I KNOW that I am getting enough calories that my body needs! It’s just not what my mind wants me to eat because there is discipline involved! Anything worth having takes work! This is a prime example! Work for the body you’ve always wanted!
