Well . . . Today was the day I took my measurements. It was time to see if this 21-Day Fix is having any effect on me. The answer is yes. I’m down 3.8 pounds but gained 1.75 inches. I’m hoping the gain in inches is because I maybe measured in a different spot – even though I try to measure in the same spots all the time. So, even though the results were meh in my opinion, I still lost. It means I have to push that much harder and follow the meal plan that much closer.
I have my MRI tomorrow for my back. When I get home, I think I shall go through my cabinets. I need to take inventory to see just what I have. Then, I will scour the interwebs to find healthy, quick-fix, tasty meals I can use with the 21-Day Fix meal plan. I am such a picky eater. The meals that come with the various programs I have (both The Firm, Tamilee Webb, and Team BeachBody) call for so many things I refuse to eat.
I’m not a fish eater. I will eat tuna – chunk white, packed in water, on occasion. Other than that, not so much. I can’t stand sweet potatoes, any kind of melon, pears, asparagus, zucchini, any kind of squash really, and I’m not that big of a meat eater.
I HATE to cook. It’s not that I can’t. It’s that I choose not to. So, this means I’m on the hunt for EASY to prepare meals. The less time I spend in the kitchen, the happier I am. 🙂 I don’t mind microwaving. I’m pretty good at that. What I find amusing is that I don’t mind the clean up. I am ever so grateful my husband does not mind doing it when he’s home!
The bottom line for my Week 1 Results from the 21-Day Fix is that it’s working! I know I need to buckle down, push harder, and eat cleaner. I should end up with even better results for Week 2, if I do! My goal for the month of August is to be down at least 10 pounds and 4 inches overall. The ultimate goal is to be down 100 pounds and 40 inches within one year.
It is absolutely doable. I will achieve my goals this time. Baby steps . . . Baby steps!
