21 Day Fix *Freebie included*

Hello dudes and dudettes, major league butt kicking is back in town! Those of you following Lindsay and/or I on social media may already know, but for those of you who don't....we are back on 21 Day Fix! We are both so excited to get our health back on track and we are equally excited to share it with you! 

Now, we've done the 21 Day Fix before and were quite successful. Lindsay lost somewhere around 11-13 lbs. and I lost somewhere around 15-17 lbs. within the 21 days. Pretty good right? The thing is we both stopped after I was offered a position with an insurance company that required me to travel for 3 months straight. Living out of a hotel with no DVD player, constant stress of training for work, not having a gym, and not making healthy choices caused me to gain more weight than I lost. Lindsay fell for similar pitfalls but here we are ready to go at it again.

Being the foodie that I am made me worry the first time around. I was worried I would have to give up all the foods that I love but that wasn't the case. I didn't/don't have to give up anything I love, I just have to make smart choices and portion better. Once I figured that out it was easy, that is until I moved away for 3 months. But enough about the past, lets talk about the now! We have been on the Fix for 3 days now and I have already lost 6 lbs. and Lindsay has dropped 5 lbs.! I know you always experience quick losses at the beginning, but having gone through this before I know what waits at the end of the fix, a healthier me!

But enough about us, let's talk food!  

I didn't conjure up anything special here folks, no sirree. I did broil the patty which I wouldn't normally do but decided to since it was a cooking option on the box. I must say although it was good, I much prefer the grill and will stick to it from now on. The onions and mushroom were the only other thing that required cooking. Just slice both mushrooms and onions, throw in a pan and measure out 2 tsp of olive oil. Cook for about 5-10 minutes on Med-High or until desired state is reached. Then just top with your favorite veggies and you're done. Wallah! Your very own 21 Day Fix approved turkey burger.   
1 Jennie-O Lean Turkey Patty = 1 Red
1 Arnold (WG) Bun = 2 Yellows
1/4 of an Avocado = 1 Blue
Romaine Lettuce = 1 Green
2 Large tomato slices = 1/2 Green
Sauteed 1/4 Large Onion = 1/2 Green
Sauteed White Mushrooms = 1/2 Green
Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Sautee = 2 TSP
Mustard = 1 TSP (Mustard is a freebie)
