21 Day Fix Meal Plan – Week 3 of My Fitness Journey!

Week three is when I really kick it up a notch! I will be doing double workouts (see week 1 for the workout schedule) and for the last three days, I will be doing the 3 Day Quick Fix. In addition, my 21 Day Fix meal plan has to account for (work around?) my daughter’s 8th birthday party!

Unlike many other workout programs, you don’t get a rest day with 21 Day Fix.  This can sometimes be challenging if you struggle to weekend workouts in like I do. I am patting myself on the back right now when I say I only missed one day so far and I made it up the day after fitting two workouts in on a Saturday!

So here it is, my meal plan for the third and final week of the 21 Day Fix.

Meal Plan Week 3!

Sunday

Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, whole grain toast with coconut oil and cinnamon

Snack: tangerine and cashews

Lunch: Vanilla Shakeology, spinach, banana, almond milk

Snack: strawberries and other fruits and veggies at my kid’s party (doing my best to avoid the ice cream sundae bar!)

Dinner: Eating out for my daughters 8th birthday. I will most likely order a salad or something somewhat healthy!

3 Day Quick Fix

For the last three days, I will be doing the 3 Day Quick Fix. These last three days will be a little different. NO Shakeology, NO fruit, and NO carbs after noon. This plan allows for 6 meals about 2 to 2 ½ hours apart and looks a little something like this…

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (Days 19, 20, and 21)

       

The coconut oil should be microwaved so you can drink it with your meal. Tea and coffee are allowed but no cream or sugar. This will be the hardest for me since I am a big fan of cream in my coffee!

Drink LOTS of water! By lots, I mean a gallon a day.  To put this in perspective just how much water I am talking about, there are 128 ounces in a gallon.  On a regular day, you should be drinking about half your weight (in ounces) in water. For example, a person who weighs 150 pounds should drink 75 ounces of water a day.

Optional Food items include:

  • Lemons and limes
  • Spices (no salt!)
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Stevia
