21 Day Fix Extreme Meal Plan

Hi everyone! In between our busy family Sunday I put together some quick and easy recipes for the week. Planning is more than half my struggles so hoping this works for us this week! I don’t always have time to do this, but plan to suck it up and get it done for the next two weeks. I hope you find this helpful for as “guide” as you journey through our challenge. As I go through this week i’ll be sure to share how this is working for us. You will noticed that this meal plan is for a 1200-1400 guide (be sure to check your chart in the guide provided), also there are some ‘yellow’ containers missing. I like to save those for the weekends, extras or just in case I add them in per day. So on this plan there are 2 yellows per day…. hope this is helpful. I’m ready to commit 100% to the nutrition plan and workouts this week for the 21 Day Fix Extreme. I’m a planner so creating a meal plan is key for me! Chuck and I are doing this together. 
Here is my meal plan for you to get a little sneak peak of how I plan to help you in your journey! If you have questions about it I would be happy to answer!!!!
Happy SUNDAY! Start your week of strong, don’t wait for the perfect conditions, just go for it!

Our Workout Schedule for the next 3 weeks. My plan is to complete two rounds before my 30th birthday and we go to Cancun Mexico in April this year for the Team Beachbody Success Club trip.

I received our plan on Friday and looked it over on Saturday. My advice to those who are getting it is, take some time to look it over before jumping right in. If you get it on a Wednesday then plan to start it on a Monday or after you have time to look it over, go to the grocery store and prep ahead. That is really half the battle.  Here is our guide for the next three weeks for the workouts…


Week 1  Workout Plan                 Week 2 & 3 Workout Plan
Monday- Plyo Fix                           Monday – Plyo Fix Extreme  
Tuesday- Upper Fix                      Tuesday- Upper Fix & 10 Min Abs 
Wednesday- Pilates Fix              Wednesday- Pilates Fix Extreme 
Thursday- Lower Fix                  Thursday – Lower Fix & Abs 
Friday- Cardio Fix                       Friday- Cardio Fix 
Saturday- Dirty 30                      Saturday- Dirty 30 or ABC Extreme 

For the workouts: You are going to need a set of light and heavy weights and a resistance band. Personally I was using 5 and 8 lbs but also up to 10 lbs for some of the lower body exercises because my legs are stronger.

Week 1 Meal Plan

Prep Time. Some Quick Ideas I like to do is first get a calendar for just my recipes and write out a guide for what we want for meals. Just general ideas! In this case I used the recipe guide that was sent to me. Really you can use any recipes you would like, but these are new and different so thought we would give them a shot!!!

Second, I make sure to make a list and bring that to the store. My hardest challenge is getting the list together, getting what we need and then Sundays I try and make a big dinner we can have for the next day…such as the chili. You will find most my dinners I make enough for the next day lunch…that way you aren’t overwhelming yourself with so many different recipes…the idea is whatever is quick, easy  and you can do while working full time, kids.. life…etc!! etc!! :)

As for as my game plan for the ‘nutrition guide’ I’m not like a crazy crazy cut all things outta my life person. If I do then I know I know I just miserably fail… so I am following the regular fix extreme plan because I want to get my nutrition in check, I want to get my body used to eating the correct portion sizes and I know that there are going to be a few days where my body just craves some of the things I was allowing myself to have before like chocolate, wine and an extra carb or two. If I don’t then I’m in trouble!

Make sure you are looking over the guide to check your correct Calorie chart for you. Choose the Approachyou want to have and go over how to use the containers.  21 day prep 3 21 day prep 1


Now this is NOT something I would maintain forever, but I really want to get back on track and feel like I can give this a shot for 21 days. Its not that long and heck this is also my job so I can do that and HELP support you along the way. Its not something you have to maintain forever but you have to get the results then go into maintenance. It can be done! That’s why Team Beachbody has coaches like me. My job is to provide you with support, accountability, guidance and tips to start and finish the program!!!

Day 1 and 2  

I have to say the first day was great. The reason for that is because on Sunday we were set up for success and what I mean about that we had out meals all planned out. The Turkey Chili was a hit and it latest for a lot of meals!! For Dinner, Lunch and Dinner again! Even my 3&5 year old John and Will loved it. The MAIN focus here honestly, is the nutrition and then the workouts will do their magic!

Here was my day of meals yesterday. I turned the Turkey Chili in to wraps, and found myself eating almost every 3 hours. I ate a lot!!! I definitely needed my Shakeology around 3PM which helped with cravings, boosting energy, keeping full and maintaining till dinner time.

What kind of people drink Shakeology? People who want to lose weight and be healthy…and get a daily dose of dense nutrition while reducing their craving for junk food. People who want more energy, better digestion, and a happier mood. People a lot like you.

Why Shakeology is worth it?

The WORKOUTS…. Week 1 

The last time my husband and I did a workout program together was back in 2010 and lets just say HE was the one dragging me out of bed. This seems to be a bit of the other way around. I have a mental clock that gets up at 5:30am….that is from over a year of doing this. Where he is ready to go more about 6:15…so for the most part we are still working out the glitches in the system here…that is pretty normal for the first part of the week…and the first week in general. Don’t give up, the first week is always the hardest!!!

Day 1 was definitely the hardest, especially since it was a huge snow storm….so according to my husband face he…well didnt like me that morning :) The second day was a bit different, this picture was taken AFTER the workout haha sooooo that is more smiles.

So all I have to say is WOW….these meals are awesome!! My husband told me I love these meals, but I love the fact there is dinner every night. HA! I tend to cook more when on a plan or have a set schedule, cause mostly I prep ahead. What a little wise 😉 ….but for real!

The third day was pretty tough to workout and I was laughing when my husband was wearing pajamas, he just said what this is what I wanna wear take the picture lol AND the rest….well we got it done! This is the real life struggle of two young parents going working on sleep deprivation. Its a miracle we are up 😉

WEEK 2 (Extreme Countdown to Competition Plan) 

So I have been getting lots of questions about the nutrition plan for the new 21 Day Fix Extreme. For your nutrition, you’ll not only be practicing portion control—you’ll be eating ONLY clean foods. No treats. No cheats. No excuses. Plus, you’ll get Autumn’s all-new 21 Day Fix EXTREME recipes to help you achieve your very best results. I was very good all week and cheated on Saturday night with a few cocktails, but for the most part I am sticking to the plan. A few mishaps but thats okay! We cant be perfect, I am just trying my best.

The first week we both lost 3.5lbs! We were amazed and we felt so much better. For the week we were very good, but do like to have fun and enjoyed dinner and a night out with friends! The salad was insanely good and insanely big, again all about portions!!
