HOW PORTIONING GOT ME BACK ON TRACK


I follow the 21 Day Fix Extreme meal plan because it’s what has worked best for me.  I like REAL food and I like to eat A LOT of food.  I tried this meal plan back in March of this year and for the most part, I have stuck with it.  I was hesitant about the meal plan when I heard the word “portioning”  because to me, that meant “a lot of work.”  I can MAKE myself exercise but eating right or healthy is a struggle for me especially with 2 little boys who eat everything.  I needed some structure, I needed to be TOLD what to eat and how much.  I had so many friends who tried it, loved it and were actually seeing results.  They weren’t miserable or HANGRY so it couldn’t be THAT hard.  I bought the package and even after it arrived I thought about just doing the exercises and NOT doing the portioning thing again..lol.  I thought – I am REALLY not into doing extra work to portion food before I eat it and how can this really make a difference in my results. I left everything on the counter and took my “before” pics….totally disgusted, I went back to the kitchen and decided to give it my all.  I gave into trying this whole portioning thing.  Surprisingly, it was really easy and even after the 2nd week I had my portions down to a science.  I was seeing GREAT results so that kept me motivated and even did a 2nd round.  My pics are down below.  21 days of work and it totally paid off for me. I enjoyed it so much I stuck with the food list.
