Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I hope your weekend was fabulous and you got to spend some time with family and friends on Sunday for Easter. I packed a lot into my weekend and had a great time. I tried to be productive here and there and I even made it to the gym on Sunday, which was a big win for me!
Friday I went out with a big group of friends and bar hopped downtown a bit. Saturday I got up and went to breakfast with my sister, Brian and David. Eventually we made our way to Target and I grabbed a few items I needed (productivity #1).
The boys were planning to go golfing and Ashley and I decided it’d be fun to ride along with them in the golf cart. In the end, we decided we’d enjoy it more on a 75 degree day – it was like 38 – no bueno!!
After golfing, we all just laid low and I called it a night early. I slept in a bit and then made my way to the gym (productivity #2). I did the elliptical for a bit and then the row machine – it felt good to sweat! Later in the day, we had plans at my parents’ house for a fish fry and Bloody Mary’s – yum!! My dad was the fry master, while Ashley, my mom and I made the side dishes. There was also an Easter egg hunt in there and golf on TV. It was a great day!
This week brings the start of the 21 Day Fix, round #3!! I’m such a big fan of this plan that when I need a kick in the butt, I always revert back. I now own the FIX and FIX Extreme, so I’ll be alternating meals to fit both, and of course, posting new meal plans and recipes on here. Be sure to follow my FIX board on Pinterest!!
Here’s an example of DAY 1:
Breakfast: Oatmeal made with water and 1/2 banana (1 Y, 1 P) + plain black iced coffee
Snack: Tuna packet (1 R)
Lunch: Shakeology with half water, half cashew milk (1 R, 1 Y)
Snack: Apple with pb (1 P, 1 O)
Dinner: Big salad with tons of veg, tempeh and homemade dijon dressing (3 G, 1 R, 1 O)
This program is HUGE right now! I’d highly recommend looking into it if you need a Summer body kick start. I can help hold you accountable. It’s easy to follow, the workouts are awesome and its affordable. Check out more about the FIX, here.
Workouts this week are similar to last week, that plan worked very well for me.

Other fun news, I was asked to blog for Blue Diamond Almonds Tastemakers Community! So, be looking for a post and review on two of the most recent almond flavors they’re trying out. Additionally, I’m getting back into writing for organicgirl and there’s a fun campaign coming up, so check back for that!!
I’ll be back later this week with more FIX fun and my meal plan. Woohoo!
Have a good day!!
