So I haven’t done a What I Ate Wednesday post in a looooong time, but today I wanted to give you an idea of what it was like to follow the 21 Day Fix workout and meal plan. When I first heard about the plan I was completely put off: those tiny containers!? Are they kidding me!? When I’m told exactly what I can and can’t do, I fall into a spiral of anxiety; I don’t like being boxed in. But then I did a Challenge Group where several other women, as well as friends were doing the Fix and loved it. So I did my research, I read as much as I could about it, I did some prep and tried to follow the guidelines on my own for a couple weeks and then I bit the bullet and bought the 21 Day Fix Challenge pack.
So for today’s WIAW, I’m going to share one day of eating from the Fix! It’s important to note that during this fix I was avoiding grains because my doctor told me to do so. All food groups are allowed on the Fix, just in moderation: portion size is the key!

Well hello there! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I’ve been in Kansas City for almost a week now, and I’m heading back to Chicago this afternoon!

On Thursday I did the Turkey Trot 5K with my Dad (more to come later):
And that evening we headed to my cousins’ for Thanksgiving dinner. My mom and I realized we were almost outfit twins!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was pretty… low key. Haha. Most everyone was out of town or busy so I spent a lot of time relaxing, aka listening to Harry Potter Audiobooks and reading this month’s book club choice, Orange Is the New Black.

I also had a fun experience at GoldPlaited (more on that tomorrow), got my apartment pretty much put together, and tried out my sister-in-law’s church in Lincoln Park.

Hey everyone, Happy Friday!
First of all, THANK YOU so much for all your congratulatory messages yesterday! Knowing I passed has been such a relief; definitely a huge weight lifted off my shoulders!
I’ve mentioned many times the benefits of high intensity interval training, but here’s a quick refresher:
What is HIIT? High Intensity Interval Training is using intervals in your workout, alternating between low/medium intensity and high intensity bursts. For example,..

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a restful weekend and are ready for a new week.I had a pretty good weekend: Girls on the Run 5K, trip to Whole Foods with my sister-in-law, a couple movies, a walk with my brother and Molly, food-prep for the week and some solid procrastination…
And guess what? Only TEN DAYS until Thanksgiving!!! How crazy is that?! Haha kind of scaring me now that I know how much work I have to get done. Oh, did I mention I forgot that I have a test tomorrow? Awesome.
So it’s time to re-cap last week’s workouts and take a look at this week. We are on Week 4 of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp, which has the…
