Wow! I am sore. Clearly I have been working muscles that haven’t been worked in quite some time. I am now wondering why we have stairs in our house…..it hurts to walk up them. I am also cringing every time I step over a baby gate…..ow!
I am happy to say day 3 was a success. My cravings are still here but I am trying so hard to ignore them and let me tell you it isn’t easy! I just love chocolate so much. And I miss my friend coca cola. I am going to do this though!
Breakfast was oatmeal with some crunchy natural peanut butter mixed in and bananas. I LOVE carbs, so when I get carbs for breakfast, I am happy! 1 yellow / 1 purple / 1 teaspoon
Look at this lunch! I am so excited about this flatbread pizza concept and I can’t wait to try a bunch of different variations. I found this flatbread at Aldi and it’s the Fit & Active Original Flatbread. It has only 90 calories per serving and is made with 100% whole wheat. They are really tasty and only count as one yellow container. On top of the flatbread I put spinach, red onion, minced garlic, olive oil, and goat cheese. I baked it at 375 for about 10-12 minutes until the spinach was wilted and the goat cheese was melted. Then I topped it with chopped spring onions. I also heated up some of my leftover salmon from the night before for some protein. 1 yellow / 1 green / 1 blue / 1 teaspoon / 1/2 red
Snack time. I made some tuna with a little bit of plain yogurt, pepper, and dill mixed in. I love the combination of tuna and dill. I served it alongside some sliced Fuji apples. 1 red / 1 purple
For dinner I made some ground turkey and diced tomatoes, sautéed peppers and onions, and topped it with a yogurt and dill “sauce”. I wasn’t thrilled with this dinner. My food snob ways came out and I didn’t eat all of it. I just wanted something tastier. Something with more carbs. But no Emily you can’t have anymore carbs for today……fine. 2 red / 2 green
Today’s workout was Lower Fix. This is probably going to be the workout I struggle with the most. Lunges are really hard for me. My legs are going to be screaming at me tomorrow!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bites
I cannot be happier that I found this amazing and 21 Day Fix friendly recipe that has CHOCOLATE in it. I know I said I would try and stay away from chocolate but….I….just….can’t. So these little protein bites are just what I need to get me through the next 17 days while staying on track.
- 2 cups quick oats
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I used crunchy)
- 6 tbls. honey
- 4 tbls. semi sweet chocolate chips
- Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl.
- Form into tablespoon size balls. Using your hands works best.
- Store them in the refrigerator until serving.
21 Day Fix Container Equivalent 3 balls = 1 yellow container
NOTE: I did the best I could to measure out all ingredients and come up with the container equivalent. This is what I think they are.
