Balance goes a long way. I like clean eats with some traditional treats!
I’m a Health and Physical Education teacher, I teach others all the time how to have a balanced meal, what’s nutritious, how to read food labels, etc. ****BUT**** I wasn’t practicing what I preached -all the time- I was aware of what I and my family were eating, but I didn’t put it all into practice. Time to shape up and make sure I’m fueling our bodies as we needed! My husband is an amazing cook, he grew up on a dairy farm and everything he cooks contains butter, cream (milk, cream cheese, sour cream), butter and more butter. YES, it’s amazing but we just can’t eat like that all the time!
Honestly, It was easy making lunches and snacks that are healthy for the kids, but for me, it was grab and go! I would eat school lunches and paid for it in the middle of the night waking up with horrible heart burn. I needed something! My friend, Andrea, posted a picture of her on Facebook, she looked GREAT, so I wanted to know EVERYTHING she was doing. I told her I didn’t want the “I’m eating healthy and working out response” I wanted to know the details!!! So she told me, she started doing P90X3 and eating clean. She soon became my coach and I learned how I can help others too! Then my co-workers started to come to me for guidance with nutrition and exercise. I was able to help them find a program that works for them, help them find a balance with their families, work and well, life.
I saw some awesome physical results from P90X3, but I needed to up my game with nutrition. Then the 21 Day Fix came out and woohoo, it was about meal planing, portion control and clean eating!!! I can do this right!?!?!? It was a little over whelming at first, learning how to make meals with the containers and not just eating salads all the time. Now I have the hang of it. Here are some pictures of me getting accustomed to all of this!
As you can see it’s do-able. My next plan is to make some recipes from the Fixate Cookbook! I’d love to share recipes and meal plans! I have some great ones posted here!
