My 21 Day Fix Adventure – Day 8 & Grocery Haul!

21 Day Fix, Day 8 | February 3, 2017 | By

I know I skipped my workout yesterday (the yoga remember?) but today I am killing it! I did the yoga workout while the kids napped and I did total body cardio once the kids were in bed. The first workout of this program was the total body cardio, so it was awesome doing it again a week later and seeing what I had improved on. There are a few things I noticed. Well, for one, I am ALOT stronger. It’s crazy what only one week of these workouts has done to my body. For example the “surrenders”, I could hardly do any on day one because my left knee hurt me so badly and that wasn’t even with any weights. Day 8, I did surrenders for the full minute (both times) with two 3 pound weights at my shoulders! Progress! There were a bunch of other moves I saw huge progress in as well. For the jogging in place moves, I was able to do the full minute with a 5 pound weight. Last week I couldn’t finish and had 3 pound or no weights. Cardio still isn’t my strongest workout but I am getting there! I can’t wait to see how the other workouts compare to last weeks!

Let’s check out what I ate!

I had to take today’s breakfast on the go, so Shakeology was my best option. I did chocolate and peanut butter and drank it in the car while heading to the grocery store. 1 red / 1 teaspoon

By the time I got home, I was super hungry so I threw together some leftovers and created this. Quinoa with green beans and salmon. 1 green / 1 yellow / 1 red

I want to share my grocery haul with you so you can see what I got and how much it all cost. I went to Aldi first because I needed some things I knew they had great prices on and then I went to Wegmans to get the rest of the things on my list.  

My Aldi Haul:

3 Fit & Active Yogurts for $1.89 each

Natural Creamy Peanut Butter $1.49

8 Chunk Tuna in Water 65cents each

3 Fit & Active Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth $1.39 each

Corn Tortillas $1.39

Almond Butter $4.99

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts $7.91

Fit & Active Cracked Pepper Turkey Breast Tenderloins $5.99

I also picked up some more of the Fit & Active Original Flatbread that we have been loving so much. It’s $2.29 for 6 of them. I got two packages.

Now for the produce. I am a bit of a produce snob because I worked at my Dad’s produce store for 6 years and he sells the most amazing produce ever! I’m not sure if it’s just the Aldi I go to or Aldi in general but I never have good luck in the produce department. Nothing ever looks fresh. But today I was able to find more than usual.

2 Strawberries $2.99 each

2 Blueberries $2.99 each 

3 Cucumbers 29cents each (great price!)

5lb Bag of Red Potatoes $2.99

2 Limes 25cents each

Bananas 44cents per pound = 94 cents

I grabbed a few things at Wegmans.

Ground Chicken $4.49

Coconut Milk $2.79 (I bought the wrong kind)

Raspberries $4.99

Ginger Root 39cents

Kale $2.69

I was hungry yet again so I ate a banana with peanut butter and cinnamon. 2 purple / 2 teaspoons

Remember how I told you I had some recipes coming up that I was really excited about? Well, I gave one a try tonight and it was a failure. I was going to make Thai Curry Chicken Meatballs that I found on a blog and the girl raved about them. The sauce was super watery and way to spicy. So I ended up throwing the sauce away and we just ate plain chicken meatballs for dinner. My husband was NOT thrilled (neither was I). I served mine alongside a romaine salad with goat cheese, avocado, and creamy herb dressing. 2 red / 1 green / 1 orange / 1 blue

After that dinner fail, I wanted to go in the kitchen and whip up a batch of my Ultimate Fudge Brownies with Peanut Butter Chips but somehow I just did the dishes, got the kids in bed, worked out, and went right to bed before I ate something I regretted…..this blog is keeping me going.
