21 Day Fix: What I Ate- Week 2

finished week 2 of the 21 Day Fix and I'm really feeling great. I've decided to wait until the end of this round to weigh myself and I'm actually excited to step on the scale at the end of next week. I feel like I'm establishing good habits. I look forward to my workouts. I struggled a bit mentally with my nutrition, but I stayed strong and stuck with it. When I was having a hard time as a mom, I really wanted to self-medicate with a handful of chocolate chips. I know that's a habit I need to break if I want to reach my goals. It was also more challenging this week because I went to two restaurants and spent time at my parent's house. My parent's house is usually a place where I act like I'm a kid again and eat tons of snacks and treats. There will be a time in the future where I can indulge in the occasional treat but I know the more I stick to the nutrition plan now, the better results I will see.

  1. I'm on week three of a diet regime as well. It's encouraging to read that you're sticking with it. (I'm right there with you! Although my diet doesn't have any fancy color coding.) Also, my personal chef, Racquel, provides me a whole lot of support. Plus I feel bad if I cheat once she has gone through all that work to help me make healthy choices. Maybe for week three you should have a personal chef to help you along the way!?! What do you say Samwise Gamgee, do you want to do all the cooking for a week?
