21 Day Fix versus 21 Day Fix Extreme + A Day in the Life (Because who doesn't want pictures!?)

This month Robin and I started 21 Day Fix Extreme after two very successful cycles with 21 Day Fix.  The food plan is the exact same except you aren't "allowed" any treats.  We didn't use any of the treats during the regular 21 Day Fix except for special occasions, so that meant basically meant the same food plan for us.

With a meal plan in place, we started the workouts.  This is definitely where the difference comes in to play. The workouts are HARD! Like, burning out your muscles so much that you can't pump the shampoo bottle in your post-workout shower.  The schedule looks like this:

Monday: PLYO Fix Extreme
Tuesday: Upper Fix Extreme
Wednesday: Pilates Extreme (which we substitute for soccer)
Thursday: Lower Fix Extreme
Friday: Cardio Fix Extreme
Saturday: Dirty 30 Extreme
Sunday: Yoga Fix Extreme

It follows a similar setup to the standard 21 Day Fix, but the biggest difference is that there is very little rest in between each workout as you go through the 30 minutes.  I've been doing lots of modifications and doing the best I can.  It is hard, but good.  I don't want it to seem like I don't  like the program.  I definitely do!  I was getting slightly bored with the sameness of 21 Day Fix after two cycles, so it is nice to jolt myself with these intense workouts.

We're in week 2, and it has been more manageable than last week.  More to come on the success with this program!

Ok, and on to the food pictures!

 Breakfast: 2 eggs with salsa + avocado

 Lunch: Leftover steak fajitas (from Fixate) over couscous with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top

Dinner: Clean and simple.  Grilled chicken with southwest seasoning (from the 21 Day Fix booklet) with steamed broccoli and A1 sauce.
