Now to a lot of you, that might not seem like very much. Yes, there are definitely people who lose 5 lbs each week with this program - and it's amazing! (My husband lost 4 lbs in his first week. Men.) My body is a little more stubborn, and I have to work really hard and be super consistent to break through my plateaus. Plus I have been eating in this calorie range for awhile now, so it wasn't a huge change for me.
Here is what a typical day of eating looks like for me:
Breakfast: Protein shake w/frozen mixed berries, oatmeal
Snack: Cottage cheese, apple
Lunch: Tuna w/avocado & lettuce on whole wheat pita, veggies
Snack: Shakeology w/2 tsp peanut butter, 20 pistachios
Dinner: Grilled chicken, lettuce and veggies, vinaigrette dressing
I have gotten really creative with my meals, and I have actually tried some new things that I might not have before. (I'm a big chicken when it comes to new foods.) You might think those little containers don't hold a lot of food, but they really do! I am NEVER hungry! Yes, I might crave things every once in awhile, but I'm not hungry. :)

Okay, now that we've discussed the food part....let's talk about the WORKOUTS!! :)
Can I just say how much I love, love, LOVE these workouts?!
I really like Autumn Calabrese's style, too. She's peppy and motivating without being annoying. I love how she just tells it like it is & makes you feel guilty if you want to rest a minute. (Some of those moves are TOUGH! Like serious, muscles-on-fire tough!)
The workouts are 30 minutes, but it feels waaaay shorter than that - seriously. I don't know why, but the workouts seem to FLY by. They are not easy, either - I am always sore the next day. It's a good thing. Trust me. :)
I would definitely recommend getting the upgraded package just for the 2 extra workouts. They are amazing! Barre Legs has a lot of ballet-style moves in it, but it is a serious leg-killer. And the Flat Abs Fix is a 30-minute ab workout that I intend to incorporate a few times a week. I love them both! I still haven't tried the bonus Plyo workout, but I think I will switch out one of the cardios next week for that one.
Overall, I am LOVING this program! (If you can't tell. haha) It is great for all fitness levels and ages. There is a modifier in all the workouts, it's short and seriously... anyone can do this!
I have a 21 day fix group that will be ongoing for anyone to join at any time. It will only be for my team, though - so if you have another coach you are working with, please check with them for a group. If you would like to join my team, sign up for your free Beachbody account & add me as your coach. It's that easy!! If you have a coach, but have no idea who it is because they have never contacted you - message me & I can help you. :)
