Here we go again…21 Day Fix Week 1

I decided to take it back to the basics…back to the program that changed my life, that got me hooked on a healthy, fit and balanced life!!! 2015-06-01 05.57.27

—–>That helped me learn that dedicating 30 minutes to exercise daily will improve more than just your waistline.  

—–>That helped me learn about portions and what types of food choices would FUEL my body and not only get me the results in terms of numbers but maximize the way I feel on the inside too!

I’ve been a bit lax and a bit too comfortable and slowly I’ve been getting away from my normal 80/20 maintenance rule and its been more like 70/30 or even 60/40 on the weekends I am feeling and seeing the side effects!

So…Today not only marks day 1 for my challengers but also for myself – to recommit – and together we will be COUNTING DOWN TO SUMMER with the 21-day fix.

I got too caught up in my role as a coach that I forgot to be a challenger too!

So here it goes:

Before pictures are taken, meal plan is set, and I’m heading to the grocery store today!

21 Day Fix Meal Plan Week of 6_1_15 imageYou’ll see I tend to eat the same types of foods throughout the week…it makes it easier to plan, easier to prepare and easier to adjust when I’m away from home! We are busy busy busy as I’m sure most of you are too…so what I’ve learned is to stay on track you have to be prepared! I will plan to make my Mancakes the night before so they’re ready to go as I head to the park etc with my kiddos.. I also  planned for an easy to pack apple and almond afternoon snack! No excuses…Summer is on the way!!!

New month – New week!!!

Anyone stuck in a food coma after the long holiday weekend? I’ll be honest….getting my workouts in was no problem-I even doubled up a few days but oh the struggle for me has been in the kitchen! I love sweets and have such a hard time just saying “no”- my 80/20 rule has been drifting more towards a 60/40 and I can feel it and see it! Its those darn COOKIES and I know that struggle will continue to tempt me all month long as December is here and the jingle bells start ringing and the Christmas cookies are baking! For me – its time to FOCUS!!!! We have just over 3 weeks before Christmas and Insanity Max 30 is being released TODAY!!! It’s time to focus on my nutrition-who’s with me???

This meal took all of 5 minutes start to finish and I topped it with some ground turkey mixed with all natural crushed tomatoes – and got myself a very healthy, fast, filling lunch!!! 
 
WHAT YOU NEED:
(per person/per serving)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/4 pound cooked pound of ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper
 
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
  1. Heat oil in pan over medium heat
  2. Spiral the zucchini and sauté for 3-4 minutes with desired sea salt and pepper
  3. Top with meat sauce
  4. ENJOY!
*For all my 21-day fixers – this meal would be 1-2 green containers (zucchini and tomatoes…assuming you use the tomatoes that have no added salt or sugar!!!) and 1 red and 1 teaspoon!

Turkey burgers

I still remember the first time I suggested using ground turkey over ground beef for burgers…I got the most disapproving look from my husband! He’s usually pretty willing to eat whatever I suggest and has been okay with my turkey spinach meatballs but just wasn’t fond of the idea of a burger being made out of turkey…until now!

These burgers turned out so juicy and when topped with a little mashed avocado needed nothing else! We passed on the bun, served with some grilled veggies and brown rice – yummy!

Turkey Spinach Burgers – yields 10 burgers

2.5 pounds ground lean turkey

3/4 cup salsa

1 TBS minced garlic

3 cups chopped spinach

1/2 cup chopped onion

Mix all ingredients and form into patties. I prefer to make mine 4oz or 1/4 pound each. With this you should get around 10 burgers. Grill 4-5 minutes per side (checking to make sure no pink inside!)

Serve with your favorite grilled veggies and sides!

Veggie kabobs

We are HUGE fans of making in bulk and freezing the leftovers for a future meal. We ended up with enough for our dinner and 2 more meals – SCORE!
