21 Day Fix Meal Plan – Week 2 of My Fitness Journey!

I have to say it has been a pretty awesome week! The Pats won the Super Bowl, and lots of snow in New Hampshire means snow days for the kids and work from home for mom and dad so that is a bonus.  I usually workout in the morning but I had this crazy idea about starting a new program the day after the Super Bowl.  Let’s just say I was not up at 5:00 am working out like I typically am. I am actually finding that I like doing this program in the evenings after the kids go to bed.

As I am sharing this I am 4 days into week 1 of my journey through the 21 Day Fix exercise program and meal plan and it is going great! Each time I start a new routine or introduce new foods to the family I learn something new; like my husband… apparently not a big fan of asparagus.

So, I am not quite through week 1 yet but I wanted to share my meal plan and shopping list for week 2 before going into the weekend. My son’s 6th birthday party is this weekend so I need to do my meal planning early and figure out when I am going to meal prep all while cleaning my house for a bunch of crazy five and six-year-olds.  I haven’t figured out how yet but I will make it all happen.

Upcoming challenge for this week – Besides the birthday party for my 6-year-old this Sunday we have a family birthday party for both my kids next Saturday. I need to avoid the cake…and the ice cream!!! Wish me luck!

As you can see I alternate many of my meals with dinner really being the only unique meal of the day. It just keeps things simple.

I have many things left over from last week’s shopping list but I will include here if I used in this week’s meal plan.
