Good Sunday Afternoon! It is a beautiful Fall morning and I thought I’d write a quick blog post outlining my first week of following the 21 Day Fix plan while doing the T25 workouts. When I completed PiYO I thought it would be a good change to go back to some traditional cardio; however, short workouts are a MUST! For me, life is just too busy for long workouts! I’m sure you are with me on that, right?! Both of my girls have started preschool a few mornings a week, my oldest daughter started dance class and the crazy schedule has set in! So, I decided that I would go back to Focus T25 for several reasons.
1. 25 Minute workouts? Heck yeah!!
2. It is a 60 day program. I can do this for two months!
3. It mixes traditional cardio as well as resistance training. It even comes with a resistance band!
4. Did I mention ALL of the workouts are only 25 minutes?!
5. There are a variety of workouts so I won’t get bored.
6. There is a modifier in every workout and there are definitely times that I need her!
7. Who DOESN’T love working out with Shaun T?!
|Let’s Do This!|
The last time I did a round of T25 was last November/December. It was around the holidays (obviously) and while I did get great results, they could have been better. So, with nothing really in the way that would derail my progress, this is the PERFECT time for me to begin! I’m already one week down!
|21 Day Fix Containers|
As usual, I am sticking with my 21 Day Fix meal planning. I seriously can’t get enough of this! It is totally true that this program teaches you how to live a healthy life. It is not a quick fix diet. After doing a few strict rounds, I am to the point where I don’t have to actually use the containers too much. I do keep them out on my counter and I do pull them out to measure things here and there; but, for the most part, I can “eyeball” my portion sizes. This is a lifestyle change at its best!
For those of you who have done, are doing, or have read a lot about the 21 Day Fix, you may be wondering if I am strictly following the 21 Day fix Eating Plan. The answer is, yes, for the most part. Do I have an extra treat here and there? Yes. Do I sometimes make some recipes that involves ingredients that are not in the 21 Day fix book? Yes. Do I eat Quest bars every now and then? Yes. Do I make sure I get all (or most) of my containers in on a daily basis? Yes! You have to do what works for YOU. And for me, this is it!

|Cinnamon Banana Bread Cookies|
In addition to the strawberry watermelon Shakeology recipe, I tried out a couple of “treat” recipes. The first was Cinnamon Banana Bread Cookies. These were super good and were delicious when heated up a bit! If you like banana bread then you would definitely like these!
