21 Day Fix Day 2 - Hello Leg Muscles

I certainly hope I am not this sore after Total Body Cardio Fix next week!  I was feeling the soreness in my leg muscles before I went to bed so I knew it would be bad, and it is.  Should have eased in a bit more!  But I was up early again and did the Upper Body Fix and was able to get through it.  I'm a little nervous about Lower Body Fix tomorrow, as the second day is always the worst...but I won't know until I try, right?

On to the food!  I think today went well, and I only experienced some minor hunger pangs because we ate late.  

Breakfast 8 AM 

1 Red, 1.5 Purple, 1 Orange

Shakeology again, still just the half scoop.  I used my medium-size Ninja cup with more coffee and ice today, and enjoyed it a whole lot more - the powdery texture was much less noticeable, it was a lot more like a milkshake.  Today I whirred it up with plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 banana, frozen strawberries, shredded unsweetened coconut, coffee, and ice.   Delicious!

Morning Snack - 11 AM

1 teaspoon

No picture - it was just teaspoon of crunchy peanut butter.  I had intended for it to also include 1/2 of an apple, but I was on autopilot this morning and threw the banana in there and didn't realize it until I was ticking off the boxes on my app.  So, no apple.  I didn't miss it.

Lunch - 1:30 PM

1 Red, .5 Purple, 1 Green, 1 Yellow, 1 teaspoon

I had leftover stir fry from last night with the addition of some chopped fresh mango - we visited my MIL this weekend and came home with a few jumbo Florida mangoes from her friend's tree, so delicious!  If I'd had extra purple I would have put it on last night too.

Afternoon Snack - 4:30 PM

.5 Red, .5 Green

Also not pictured, but it wasn't great to look at - I had some low-sodium Boars Head turkey breast and baby carrots.  I picked up the turkey to help fill in some of my red on snacks, and it definitely helped give me staying power until our late dinner.

Dinner - 8 PM

1.5 Green, 1.5 Red, 1 Yellow, 1 Blue

Highlight of the night!  I adapted an idea I found online to create these Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Zucchini and served them up with a side of sweet potatoes.  Recipe going up on the blog tomorrow!

My big surprise from today was my total lack of desire for carbs - in fact, I left a little of the rice behind at lunch and about half of the sweet potato at dinner, I was full and just wasn't interested in eating them.  Coming from a self-proclaimed carboholic, I thought I'd be hurting, but it's the exact opposite.  Maybe it's the Shakeology, which is supposed to curb cravings, or maybe it's just the balance of the diet, who knows.  But I'll take it!

Now it's time for a little hot tub session in hopes of easing a little soreness before lower body in the morning.  Except that means I have to get up first....
