Meal Plan Monday- 21 Day Fix

I haven't been good at focusing on my blog lately. On the other hand, I have been very focused on organizing and getting my house up to snuff. It's all about routine. Now that I've done 2 deep cleans and have a cleaning schedule that I have been good at sticking too, my home feels much more relaxed.

The next part to get back into focus is our eating plan. I have started the 21 Day fix by beachbody and, as always, find the food plan to be the most difficult thing to tackle. This week's menu plan is colour coded for me and took a little time to put together because I was desperately trying to achieve the right balance of food for my calorie intake. I also had to come up with meals that worked for me, that my kids would eat AND that are Whole 9 (Whole 30) compliant.

Here is what I've come up with:

I know, I don't have Saturday figured out for supper but I'll figure that out later. One thing I don't like is that there is a lot of repetition. I will try to mix it up a little better next week but for now it will do. I have been dabbling in the 21 Day fix for about 3 weeks now and it's time to really focus. 

I have found a number of meal plans online that were really helpful in getting this plan finished. It's a lot of information and when you've been making okay choices, but the serving size may be off  you aren't going to get any where. I've got the Bluenose in May (I say that like I'm running a marathon- I'm doing the 5k or 10k, feels like a marathon for me) and while I've dropped some weight with the Whole 30, I'll be able to get through it a lot easier with more weight gone. 

8 down...72 to go!
