Food + Fitness {21 Day Fix, Turbo, Meal Plan}

Hi there!

Need some motivation??

blog5I ordered this beauty last week when Victoria’s Secret was having free shipping on swim suit orders. I love it, although I’m kind of wishing I ordered this top instead. Which do you prefer? I will see what I think once it arrives, but I may be exchanging them.

Since I’ll be wearing that in Florida in just 19 days, I’ve been keeping tabs on food and really going hard with workouts – even getting 7/7 days in last week!

Here’s the plan for the week ahead:

mainFOOD 

Being the creature of habit that I am – this week is going to look pretty similar to the last few weeks – sticking with the FIX meal plan, lot’s of Shakeology, sandwiches at lunch, and salads at dinner.

blog4Grocery shopping on Sunday and prepping for the week is so helpful, especially when following a particular plan. While the FIX isn’t anything complicated, I still like having an idea of what’s on the menu each day.

When I get home from my workout at night, it’s about 7:00 p.m., so it’s nice having a salad already made to grab and I just have to top it with the rest of the goodies.

blog2Last night’s mix included:

  • spring mix
  • romaine
  • broccoli slaw
  • red pepper
  • cherry tomatoes
  • avocado
  • chicken
  • goat cheese
  • homemade dijon dressing

Perfection!

For lunches, I’ve really been enjoying pita sandwiches or wraps – both of which I use Ezekiel brand.

FITNESS

In sticking to the calendar that I created earlier this month, this week is another mix of 21 Day FIX DVDs, Turbo, lifting (upper and lower body), elliptical intervals and abs.

blog1Monday – Turbo 55 + Abs
Tuesday – Upper Body
Wednesday – Dirty 30 + Elliptical Intervals
Thursday – Lower Body + Abs
Friday – FIX Cardio (I have to get up at 5:30 a.m. to do it – EEK)

_______ Heading to Cleveland at 3:00 on Friday until Monday evening, so workouts will be different______

Saturday – T25 Lower + HIIT Circuit
Sunday – Rest, glorious rest
Monday – FIX Cardio

I’m headed into the fitness room shortly to do the the Ultra Upper Body workout – I’m loving this routine and can really tell I’m getting stronger.

Talk later…

Which bikini top do you prefer? Do you have a piece of clothing that you use as motivation? Any vacations planned? Have you tried the Ezekiel Pita Pockets? 

Also, just wanted to make mention that my FAVORITE workout program, TurboFire, is on sale this month. You get the program plus Shakeology and save a shit ton of money. Check it out, here!

    Victoria Secret = hands down the cutest bathing suits on the market. I remember I was in LOVE with this one bikini they had and then I couldn’t find it for years, but finally found it on eBay….. And ordered it of course. This was 3 years ago. And how many times have a I worn it? Uh, 2 times. LMFAO!

      I agree – love VS – still just wish I looked like they do in the bikini! You better break that bathing suit out asap!

    I LOVE that swimsuit girl, I prefer the thicker triangle tops like you got :) Nothing better than the beach and bikinis for motivation. My motivation is our upcoming move to FL, once our house sells we are off, so I keep telling myself I need to be ready haha!

      I’m so jealous you’re moving to Florida. I’m convinced I’m supposed to live by the ocean. That’ll for sure keep you motivated! :)

      Oh, always good to know of new places to check out suits, they’re so hard to shop for! Cape Cod sounds wonderful!

    • Lauren says

      Oh my gosh, yes. We’re basically walking around in bra and underwear – eek! Enough motivation for me!
