Fixate Cookbook has Arrived

Got the Fixate cookbook yesterday, so tonight I made the turkey chili… Fantastic! If this meal is an indication of how the rest of the recipes will be, it will be gourmet cuisine all the way at our house. The portions are HUGE for this too! Even my daughter loved it and she is picky!

2 weeks of the 21 day fix down, and I’m still loving it. My husband and I even managed to go out for dinner and not get carried away on portions – but dining at a restaurant after eating clean for 2 weeks is a real eye opener. We went to Mongolian Village where you pick out your own ingredients and they cook it for you because we figured that was the best option. You have a selection of noodles, meat, veggies and sauces to choose from and that part was fine – you can make up a really healthful dish – but when they cooked it, they added so much oil, it made it really greasy. I guess I should have been specific to ask to use a lot less oil, or just forgo it altogether as is seems they soak some of the meats in oil, but I wouldn’t have expected them to use so much. The dish would have been so much better with minimal amounts. Date nights are always fun nights to go out for supper, but I’ll have to just watch out for the extra ingredients… Or, we can turn our kitchen in to the gourmet restaurant, we love to cook anyway.

I almost missed a workout on Saturday, but I felt I needed it, so in the evening still managed to get it in. Today I did the yoga, then a little extra treadmill running to try and burn off some of that extra grease, haha I feel like if I don’t do the workouts, I’m cheating. I’ve got one more week until the first round of 21 day fix is over, why start flaking out now? I feel like bad habits are being broken. I feel awesome.

2 weeks down, 1 to go! Looking forward to finding out and sharing the final results of the first 21 days.
