Failure to plan is a plan to fail! I agree with this statement whole-heartedly. I often have people asking me for support in reaching a health or fitness goal. When we talk about their goals I like to ask what else they have going on in their life. Do they work full time? Have a family? What are their other commitments. I am looking for an idea of where they will be able to fit this new health and fitness regimen into their routine. Will it be better for them to workout in the morning or at night? Maybe they can fit 30 minutes in while their kids nap? We come up with a tentative plan for their workout times and it is up to them to put that into their calendar.
It really supports your 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME meal plan and workouts preparation if you put your workouts in the calendar. Also start by COMMITTING 100% to getting them done. Be flexible with this plan. If you plan to workout at night and realize that you are too tired to get them in at night you may want to do them in the morning. Maybe the opposite will be true for you. You are too tired in the morning but can totally get them done at night. Play with your schedule and see what works for YOU!
As far as the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME meal plan goes it is best to read over the entire meal plan BEFORE you start. Familarize yourself which food group is associated with which color coded container. Look up your favorite foods and create your own lists. Group the foods you love based on what color container they will fill. Go grocery shopping the weekend before you accountability group starts. Fill your cart with lots of whole foods, fruits, veggies, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats. Over the weekend or even Sunday night plan out your meals for the week. Make a calendar of what you plan to eat for each meal each day like the one below.
Once you have all your meals planned out for the week, begin PREPARING your 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix EXTREME meals. You can cook your veggies, lean protein, and whole wheat grains for the week. Chop up the fruit you plan to eat all week. Measure everything out in the color coded containers and put each MEAL in individual tupperware containers. This way you can just grab your meal and go. You don’t need to cook everyday. Just heat it up when you are ready to eat it. You can even freeze them for the end of the week and take them out of the freeze a day or two before. This way they can thaw out and are ready to go. Don’t forget to plan in your Shakeology and drink it DAILY. It is packed full or 70 plus whole food ingredients and will keep you feeling fuller longer, reduce your cravings, and increase your energy. Here is a simple, healthy 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix EXTREME meal that can be made in less than 15 minutes in a bind. It is a mixed green salad topped with green beans, tomatoes, 1 yellow of cooked black rice and a salmon burger. The dressing is the balsamic vinaigrette from the Beachbody Ultimate Reset. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy and you can eat healthy on a tight budget!
