Today I start the 21 day fix .

When I received the containers in the mail, the conversation went like this:

Me: Wow, those containers are really a lot smaller than I imagined.

Manatee: Yeah, I think that’s kind of the point.


And that is why I am doing the 21 day fix, I need to get a better handle on portions. I consider myself a healthy eater. We don’t eat processed foods and eat lots of veggies. Yet, I know I can do better and I know I don’t have a good handle on portions. And oh yeah, I had a baby 6 weeks ago and I am ready to get out of this post partum phase where nothing fits. 

Meal planning was harder than I thought as well. It stressed me out too much planning every single thing I would put in my mouth for the next 7 days, instead I brainstormed options and I will then eat what I want within those options.

And yes, I needed to drink wine while I planned my options.

So my meal plan is a little all over the place, but I’d like to share this with you. I know a lot of people are interested in the 21 day fix, so I will share my journey. This will either make you want to try it or say ‘Heck no!’. And it should be good for a few laughs, right?

I know other people use this type of method for meal planning. I would love to hear from you. Do you meal plan? Do you plan each meal individually or create a selection of options? I am curious as to what people find the most helpful.

I will do my best to record and share what I end up eating each day. You can follow me on Instagram (@bdgergrl).

Have a great week everyone!
