21 Day Fix | Minus Shakeology

As you all know by now, last week I started another round of the 21 day fix, this time without Shakeology. It’s truly amazing how much energy one shake a day can give you… the 21 day fix is a killer without it. The only reason I stopped drinking Shakeology is because I thought I was having an allergic reaction to it. Turns out… I have no clue what I’m allergic to and I had a reaction to Blistex over the weekend, so I know it’s not shakeology.

The other day I ordered more and I truly can’t wait for it to get here. Without it I’ve struggled with breakfast in the morning, as I have to eat on the go and there’s nothing healthy that I can find to grab and go with. I’ve gotten into my old habit of going to the coffee shop to grab an Ice Maple Oat Scone and a large iced coffee. That habit is defiently not good for the wallet or the waist line. I’ll be back to saving money with shakeology and getting the most nutriuents I can out of one meal, while avoiding the extra carbs.

I can’t wait for my shipment to arrive so I can start making the shakes in the morning and get back to eating healthy and feeling better. 🙂shakeology_logo_low_res

Shakeology, I Just Want You

This past week has been very difficult in terms of eating healthy and staying on track. I’ve had a major reaction to something and I really don’t know what caused it. I don’t know if it was something I ate, something I put on my skin, or just the dry California air.

I really don’t want to go into details, as it was completely embarrassing, but I have stopped drinking Shakeology for a full week so far, and I’m really struggling. That Shake was my breakfast and I’ve had nothing to replace it with for a week. I don’t have time to eat at home in the morning and I always just mixed the shake and ran out the door, while enjoying it on my drive into work.

I really hope this isn’t the end for me and Shakeology, as that is the best shake I’ve ever had and it really helps me feel great everyday. I’m really hoping it was something else that caused the reaction.

Anyone else ever experience side effects from Shakeology?

Hammer and Chisel | The Master’s Cardio

Okay, so it’s my third Saturday on the Hammer and Chisel program. I decided to switch up the workout and instead of doing another round of Hammer Plyometrics, I did the optional The Master’s Cardio workout.

My first thought when putting the DVD in was… “Wow, only a 16 minute workout. Not to bad.” Well… that 16 minutes was a total killer. Especially since I just got done with an hour spin class at the gym.

I made it through the entire 16 minutes and I’d have to say I’m pretty darn happy where I’m at physically. I was able to finish the time with the 30 burpee’s, without stopping and I added the jump during the last 10. I have NEVER in my life been able to do that many burpee’s in a row! It’s only the third week and I’m so happy I decided to do this program. My life will be forever changed because of this. 🙂

 

Hammer and Chisel | “Damn”

I’m ending my third week of Hammer and Chisel and I have to say… I am so happy I started this program! 💕

I’m not just saying this… I’m honestly happy I’ve started this 60 day program. I have not weighed myself since I like to measure my fitness on how I feel and how my clothes fit, but for the first time today I looked at my stomach and went “Damn.” haha. It has never been this flat and tone in my entire life!

The program looked very overwhelming in the beginning, but it’s really just pretty awesome. I just purchased heavier weights because my 8 lb dumbells were becoming too easy.

I’m so excited to see what the next few weeks has in store and where I’ll be at the end of the 60 days!

 

Meal Prep Sunday – Blue Apron

I was not in the mood for meal prep today, but a few weeks ago I ran into an ad for Blue Apron. After reading about it and looking into prices I decided to give it a try.

This service gives you a few recipes to choose from for a week and will deliver the correct amount of ingredients to your doorstep on a day of your choice. I chose a saturday delivery and the ingredients arrived at my doorstep in a refridgerated box. I wasn’t home at the time of the delivery, but the items in the box were indeed cold by the time I opened it.

Even though everything was sent to me, I still wasn’t in the mood to cook but I did it anyway. I am completely blown away at how easy the recipes were to follow and it was SO awesome to have all the ingredients already measured out for you. I’ve learned that’s the part of cooking that I dread, gathering the ingrediants, measuring it and preping it.

I’ve made two of the three recipies. Seared Chicken with sauteed purple patatoes, kale and apple and Crispy Cod and Yuzu-Shoyu Soba with Cabbage and Togarashi. I’ve never cooked cod before and I think it’s turned out well.


I’ll be eating the recipies throughout the week. I sure hope they all turned out great! From what I’ve tasted so far they have, but this week will be the real test.

Now, I just have to find time to cook the steak.

The package alone is pretty scary and the calendar looks even scarier….

I’m so ready to take on this new challenge and I can’t wait to be able to post the before and after photo’s!
