So, here was my first meal plan that I followed for Week 1 of Focus T25 and the 21 Day Fix:
I didn't actually try any new snack/dinners this week; however, I did try out some different "treat" recipes! Oh, and a new Shakeology
recipe! I realized that since chocolate Shakeology is the main flavor that I drink every single day, I don't really offer a variety of recipes for the different flavors. So, I had some extra strawberry Shakeology from the other month and had some watermelon cut up in the fridge so I thought....why not?! I remember passing along this recipe to a challenger of mine and her saying how much she loved it, so, I gave it a try and it was hit with not only me, but my 2 year old as well! It is called Strawberry-Watermelon Shakeology
and is simple to make.
|Cinnamon Banana Bread Cookies|
In addition to the strawberry watermelon Shakeology recipe, I tried out a couple of "treat" recipes. The first was Cinnamon Banana Bread Cookies
. These were super good and were delicious when heated up a bit! If you like banana bread then you would definitely like these!
|Baked Apple Crisp|
The other recipe I tried was just last night and boy was it a hit! After dinner I threw together some homemade Baked Apple Crisp
. It seriously took about 5-10 minutes to prep and it baked for about 25-30 minutes. We all tried it right out of the over and it was mouth watering delicious! I have to admit, although it was fantastic by itself, my husband and I did add a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top to make it in to a dessert cheat treat :) This is seriously a MUST TRY!
Ok let's talk T25!
|T25 Week 1|
The workouts that I did for Week 1 are as follows:
Tuesday: Speed 1.0
Wednesday: Total Body Circuit
Thursday: Ab Intervals
Friday: Lower Focus
I was a bit nervous about going from low impact / high intensity PiYO
to high impact / high intensity Focus T25. I spent the summer doing such a different type of cardio that I got out of the habit of traditional cardio. I have to admit, Week 1 was a bit tough, but, by the end of the week I was feeling great! I could actually tell a difference in my strength and flexibility with several of the moves, which I am crediting PiYO for.
|No More Excuses|
Overall, I am feeling strong going in to Week 2 of T25. I am committed to completing this program and can't wait to see my results!
So, I have to ask, how often do you think to yourself, I wish I had the time to devote to myself? How often do you think that you just don't have the time to plan out your meals and truly live "healthy?"
That's where I come in to the picture! I felt the SAME way. With two toddlers and working full time when I first started, I never thought I would be able to commit to having "me" time every single day. I mean, I'm lucky to be able to take a shower without being interrupted by my little ones! I can proudly say that I have figured it out, for now at least! I have been able to prioritize my day so that I am not only available to my kids, but I also have time to myself. I'm telling you, it CAN be done if YOU WANT it to be done.
