21 Day Fix: What I Ate-Week 3

I love to cook and try new recipes all the time. I would go crazy if I had to eat the same thing everyday. That has been part of the adventure with the 21-Day Fix. I've had some delicious surprises and some disappointments. It's been cool being more conscious of the foods I eat and realizing all of the things I was mindlessly eating before I started the Fix. I am on Day 21 and am getting ready to take my measurements to see what I've accomplished during these 21 days.

Breakfast: 1/2 Piece of Toast (1/2 Yellow) with Peanut Butter (1 t) and Turkey Bacon (Red) The rest of my family had doughnuts for a First Day of School Treat. I cried a little on the inside.
