3 Day Quick Fix- Day 1

If you’ve been around blogland or pinterest for any amount of time, no doubt you have come across Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix from Autumn Calabrese. Last summer I did several rounds and was very pleased with my results. Unfortunately, I let bad habits creep back in and I went off my medication for the tumor so my hard work was washed away. Unfortunate circumstance number 2 was that I was sidelined from workouts from December to March due to a torn ligament in my ankle!

I’ve done several halfhearted attempts in the last two months. Halfhearted does not see results. Due to my hormone levels being all messed up, I NEED to do the workouts. Thankfully, I am cleared to workout again, but it’s been hard to get back into the program.

I had a few wakeup calls the past few weeks though. One is that while my prolactin levels are within (almost) normal, the tumor is not shrinking. I don’t see the endocrinologist until June, so I won’t know my next step until then. The other was that my fasting glucose level has been going up slightly the past few years. Three weeks ago it was in the prediabetes range. It convinced me that I need to make changes in my lifestyle and it needed to happen for lifetime. In order to make that happen, I need to make nutrition and physical activity a priority. I’m almost done with a round of 21 Day Fix, but I had a bad weekend full of lots of fast food. I feel pretty rotten this morning so I am going to do a quick cleansing with the 3 Day Quick Fix. I’ve done this once before and while I don’t LOVE it, I liked it a whole lot better than the 2 Day Refresh I tried (I only made it through ½ a day on that…).

So the next three days I’ll be eating the following. I decided to have the same thing all three days to make preparation and shopping easier and not give me a chance to over think things. You will notice that there is no dairy, no fruit and very little carbs. I do get to flavor anything with spices, herbs, vinegar, lemon/lime juice. NO salt though.

Meal 1- oatmeal and eggs

Meal 2- extra lean ground turkey and steamed sweet potato

Meal 3- fish and asparagus

Meal 4- chicken and zucchini

Meal 5- fish and green beans

Meal 6- chicken and broccoli.

 

I’m excited about getting my health back on track! I’ve finished my oatmeal and eggs, so I am going to wrap this up and get on with my day. Workout this evening will be Total Body Cardio Fix.
