21 Day Fix: Week 3 Recap & Results

Whew!! Doubles week is always a doozy! But, it feels great to be making progress and getting stronger!

My food has been on point this week and I’ve felt super satisfied with my meals! I ate A LOT of zucchini noodles and spaghetti squash. Those two veggies have quickly become my favorites! Funny because before the 21 Day Fix, I wouldn’t even entertain the idea of putting them in my mouth! But now I actually CRAVE them!! Look at this yumminess!

 

This round I lost 5 pounds!! 2 inches off my hips and 1 inch on each thigh! It feels good to have a bit of that holiday weight off of me! I’m super excited to continue making progress and advance!

Join me in my February Fit & Fab challenge group! No purchase or special equipment necessary. This is just a fun and free group because we love you!!!

February Fit & Fab Challenge Group

Hey guys! February is here!!! This month is all about LOVE! Let’s dedicate 29 whole days to loving our bodies and enjoying the skin we’re in. This challenge will be for all fitness levels. We will be posting 10 minute workout videos that can be done alone or in addition to your regular workout routine!

Most workouts do not require any equipment, but dumbells are a plus. If you don’t have dumbells just grab some soup cans or water bottles and get moving!

This is still a CHALLENGE, so we are holding a drawing at the end for everyone who completes their daily workouts and submits their completed calendar. Email me at coachcristieashe@gmail.com if you would like to be added to our group!

Here are some easy tips to get you started!

– Avoid refined sugars… use honey, agave, or stevia instead.

– Eat healthy fats like avocado, nuts, or olive oil.

– Avoid excess salt. There are tons of low sodium seasonings that are super tasty!

– Don’t drink your calories! Drink plenty of water! It’s recommended that you drink half your weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 120 lbs, drink 60 oz of water.

– Choose complex carbs like sweet potatoes, quinoa, brown rice and whole wheat pasta.

– Portion control! Even with healthy foods! Eat until you’re satisfied, not stuffed.

– Avoid processed and fried foods. It’s best to eat foods that are closest to their natural state.

– Eat your veggies!! Not only are they super nutritious, they are full of fiber and will help keep you full!

21 Day Fix: Week 2 Recap

The second week of this round has been great. It has actually flown by! I got all my workouts in except for Wednesday, but I doubled on Thursday to make up for it. My food has been about 80/20 again and I allowed myself to have a cheat night on Saturday. But, I got right back on the wagon Sunday morning!

This week is my doubles week and I’m kind of dreading it. My knee has started to ache a little, so I know I need to dial it down. But, I’m committed to my doubles schedule. I’ll just modify the exercises when necessary.

I have some really great meals planned this week. While I was at the grocery store I got some spaghetti squash, tilapia, and lots of zucchini. I’m going to shoot for 90% clean with my food this week.

Here’s what my week looks like:

New Year, New Me!

So far, I’ve started this year off with a bang! I’m hitting my stride with my fitness plan, I’m saying “yes” to more life experiences, and I’m taking more time for ME!

This is week 2 of 2016’s first round of 21 Day Fix! I crushed all of my workouts last week and even added 10 Minute Abs twice. I was about 80/20 with my eating plan. I had a couple days where I went over on my carbs and didn’t eat all my veggies.  But, I consider that a pretty decent start since I had really fallen off the wagon.

My goal for this week is to continue to push myself in my workouts and dial in my nutrition to 90/10. I’m not perfect, so this is good enough for me! Next week is doubles so I really need to prepare my body for the extra workouts. I may allow myself some extra protein next week, but we’ll see how it goes.

My meal plan for today is below.

Breakfast: Greek yogurt w/ raspberries & honey. redpurpletsp
Lunch: Spinach salad w/ chicken. redgreengreenorange
Snack: Navel orange. purple
Dinner: Salsa chicken nachos! redhalf redyellowyellowgreenbluetsp

Water: 80 ounces

Workout: Total Body Cardio
