Hope you’re having a great day! I can’t even believe we are almost through July. I’m actually pretty excited because that means we’re a little closer to my favorite season, Fall! I know we’re still a ways away but with these 100+ degree temps it’s hard not to daydream about cooler temps 🙂
Anyway. I just wanted to pop in to tell you about my nutrition lately. The past few weeks I’ve been following the 21 Day Fix nutrition plan and it’s been so helpful. I was eating way too many lactation treats or just treats in general… So I decided to start following the plan to make sure I was getting enough proteins and veggies. I definitely wasn’t and have noticed since I’ve been following this plan I feel SO much better.

It’s crazy how little veggies I was eating even though I thought I was doing good. However, since I currently weigh more, I need to eat a few more servings of vegetables, proteins and fruits than I normally would.
2 protein, 1 Veggie, 1 carb, 1/2 healthy fats and 1 dressing
It took me about a week to get used to it but I definitely notice a difference now that I’m getting in the correct amount of each food group.

Eating real foods has helped me to feel so much better. I have more energy, less bloated and the inches are decreasing weekly. Which is needed after gaining all the pregnancy weight…

The program is has been so beneficial for my milk production too. I’ve noticed that I have a good supply when I’m eating a good amount of proteins, veggies and healthy carbs. The 21 Day Fix definitly helps to ensure I do this.

What I love most about following the 21 Day Fix meal plan, is all the delicious food! My family and I have been enjoying the meals I’ve been making following recipes from the Fixate Cookbook.
This particular recipe for Grandma’s Spaghetti Sauce is SO good! I actually made a HUGE batch and canned it for future use. The other night I mixed it with some ground turkey and served it over spaghetti squash which is our favorite!
Want to try it? Right now I’m running a huge promotion for new clients. Anyone who purchase a the 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack (on sale for $140 from $160) will receive a free Fixate cookbook! A $20 value and filled with so many delicious recipes.
I’ll also be running an accountability group next month starting on August 8th which will help you to get back on track just as I did. It includes daily tips, motivation, encouragement, recipes, weekly meal plans, fun challenges, prizes and TONS of support. It’s a great way to get back on track after any summer indulgences you may have had 🙂
