21 Day Fix Days 1-3


So I thought that the 21 Day Fix was going to be a huge challenge for me but I have to say that eating this way actually comes pretty natural.  I have learned a few things throughout my time on the fix and know now how to combat areas that I have trouble with.

21 Day Fix Logo

For my weight and size I am supposed to have 5 green containers, 3 purple containers, 5 red containers, 4 yellow containers, 1 orange container, 1 blue container, and 5 tsp.

Day 1 Breakfast

Day 1 —

Breakfast —

Raspberry Cheesecake Smoothie


1 red container of cottage cheese

1 purple container of frozen raspberries

1 purple container of water

stevia or agave nectar to taste

Blend the ingredients in a blender and I promise it does not taste like what you would think.  It is delicious and a great treat that tastes a lot like a raspberry cheesecake.

1 whole grain waffle with 1 tsp of peanut butter (1 yellow and 1 tsp)

Snack 1 —

Day 1 Snack 3

Apple with 2 tsp of peanut butter (2 tsp and 1 purple)

Lunch —

Day 1 Lunch

Grilled chicken salad


1 green container of spinach

1 green container of mushrooms (I mix 1/2 baby bella and 1/2 white)

1 green container of mushrooms and radishes (1/2 of each)

1 blue container of feta cheese

1 red container of prepared chicken (cooked in 1 tsp of EVOO)

Sprinkle the top with red wine vinegar and use a little shake of salad seasoning (I like McCormicks but I realize that this does have a little salt in it so you might want to choose something sodium free.).

Snack 2

Day 1 Snack 2 Day 1 Snack

8 whole grain crackers (1 yellow)

1 red container of cottage cheese (I did sprinkle mine with a tad bit of cajun seasoning)

1 orange container of olives

Shrimp Stir Fry


1 red container of precooked shrimp (thaw them if they are frozen)

1 green container of green beans

1 green container of mushrooms and green onions

Saute your veggies in 1 tsp of EVOO and whatever seasonings you like.  Then throw your shrimp in until heated through.  Put on top of 1 yellow container of brown rice.

Raspberry Greek Yogurt

1 purple container of raspberries (I like to use frozen and let them thaw so that you get that yummy raspberry juice too!)

1 red container of plain greek yogurt

If you need a little bit of stevia or agave nectar I stir it into the yogurt first.

I finished out my day with 1 whole grain waffle plain as an evening snack as I had planned on enjoying a glass of wine with my friends but I did not.

Dinner out!!

I had 1 green container of sauteed mushrooms (prepared without any added oil), (1 red container) turkey strips (prepared without any added oil), and 1 green container of salad (no dressing).   (I had three fried mushrooms too!)

I did come home and have a slight snack attack as I had nothing left to eat so I managed to eat some pre-portioned healthier options but still should have held out.

Day 3 —

Both day 1 and day 2 I got up early and prepared all of my food.  I wasn’t sure where I was eating at for lunch as I had a girl scout event for my daughter.  So I decided to not prepare and this was a HUGE mistake.

Breakfast —

Day 3 Breakfast

Healthy Chicken and waffles

1 red container of chicken (cooked with 1 tsp EVOO) and 1 whole grain waffle (1 yellow)

Lunch —

Day 3 Lunch

We ate out at a local Italian place and I managed to have a salad with just 1 tsp of dressing (1 green and 1 tsp), steamed broccoli (1 green), and a chicken breast (prepared without oil–1 red).  I did also have 2 slices of bread with less than 1 tsp of butter on them (I counted them as 2 yellows and 2 tsp)

Snack —

Apple (1 purple)

Dinner —

Day 3 Dinner 3

Raspberry Smoothie

Day 3 Dinner 2

Fresh mushroom and radish salad with feta (3 green and 1 blue but I could only eat half of it so I did not get all of my food in)

Day 3 Dinner 1

Tilapia (1 red)

Snack —

protein shake (similar to Shakeology which is suggested for the program)

I also had a few ropes of licorice.  I like candy and a diet where I do not eat a few pieces here and there is not one that I will stick with so I decided to really focus on what I could do for the rest of my life.


I feel great and got up first thing this morning (day 4) to prepare all of my foods for today.  I know that this was a huge downfall for me yesterday and I did not want to fall into that same trap where I did not get all of my food in.  I also find it easier not to cheat when I have prepared food ready for me to just grab and eat.


If you are curious as to what prep looks like, here is the prep for day 1.

Day 1 Lunch Prep Day 1 Snack Prep Day 1 Dinner Prep

My biggest challenge on this program is getting in the workouts.  I did well on day 1 but was very busy on day 2 and 3 and did not get them in.  My goal for the next 7 days is to actually get each and every one of the workouts in!
