21 Day Fix Day 6 - Weekend Challenges

Saturday was also a bit of a struggle - I definitely have an easier time with it when I have the routine of getting up early to work out and going to work after.  I could get up on weekends just the same and work out right away I guess, but I like to enjoy lazy mornings!

Unfortunately the weekend days also get away from me quickly since my husband and I normally do things together like running errands, doing chores, squeezing in a little fun here and there, etc.  So yesterday, I skipped the workout.  I could have made the time, and I didn't - I hope I do better next week.  My goal is to double up today, although there is already talk of heading off to the beach to find a snorkel spot...but I will at least do the yoga workout.  And swimming and playing at the beach has got to count for something, right?

Breakfast - 9 AM

.5 Green, .5 Red, 1 Yellow, 1 Blue

Weekends are for cooked breakfasts, so we saved Shakeology for later.  Sunny side up egg on avocado toast with chopped tomatoes and a sprinkling of cheese.  Delicious and filling.  That I was clearly hungry for as I started eating before snapping a picture!

Morning Snack - 11 AM

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

Hubs and I both whipped up our Shakeology snacks (mine included peanut butter, banana, spinach and coffee) on a quick stop home during our marathon errands - we ran all over town shopping for various local seafood and produce items.  Always nice to eat local, but also a great way to make the 21 Day Fix more affordable - we got a huge sack of produce at our local farm stand for less than $10, and we have a local aquaculture farm that sells their shrimp for just $10 a pound.  Between that and not buying snacks and sodas, we can afford Shakeology :)

Lunch - 3 PM

1 Red, .5 Green, .5 Purple, 1 Orange

A little on the late side because of the errands, but instead of our usual quick lunch out we came home and put together a healthy mixed grill meal.  I made skewers of chicken, peppers, onions, and fresh local pineapple, Hubs threw them on the grill, and we finished them off with the 21 Day Fix Asian vinaigrette.  Tip - we like to make separate skewers of the different ingredients so they each can get the proper cook time, then we just mix them all up on the plate.  My purple is a little light on the plate, I snacked on a couple pieces while cutting it up so I was keeping myself honest!

Afternoon Snack - 5:30 PM

.5 Green, .5 Red

We bought a couple turkey tenderloins and roasted them up to try to save a little on the deli meat budget - came out nicely!  I enjoyed some turkey, tomatoes and carrots sprinkled with sriracha seasoning.  

Dinner - 8 PM

1 Red, 1 Green, .5 Purple, 1 teaspoon, 1 Yellow (not pictured)

As pretty as this dinner might appear, it was actually not all that good.  We picked out a sea bass at the seafood store and I did not enjoy it at all, need to stick to my tried and true grouper and hog snapper I guess.  And the mashed cauliflower was terrible, I followed a recipe I found that involved steaming it in chicken broth and it was just wet and lumpy, even after we drained out a ton of liquid.  So I'm going to try a dry-roasting method next time.  I ate the green beans and fruit, and ended up rounding out my meal with some more turkey and carrots.  Also enjoyed a glass of wine, although caved and poured a couple more ounces than the recommended.  But I resisted all snacking, so it could have been worse!  Baby steps, right?
