How to plan your food for the week:
Meal planning requires a decision, a plan, and most importantly action.
Summer is almost over and so is my loose attitude toward nutrition and exercise.
Although I’m enjoying the summer, I don’t feel 100% and I want to get structure back with my nutrition and with my exercise.
So I DECIDED to make a change, made a PLAN and then took some ACTION.
I don’t yet have a specific goal I just want to get the ball rolling and get back into the swing of things.
I used sharpies on my fridge for my food diary so I know what I am eating each day.
Meal Prepping Chicken
Meal prepping is ridiculously easy:
chicken, herbs, garlic, oven – lunch meat for 3 days.
This took roughly 5 minutes
including chopping my garlic and herbs
now I have an hour while it cooks
to complete tasks for the day (watch road house).
You Can Even Prep To Drink Enough Water!
Drinking water is one of the easiest ways to lose
weight and stay alive, but it can be a ball ache to keep track off.
So in order to get those 8 glasses in try this:
chop 1 lemon into 8 slices,
put it in baggy,
take to work and then place in every glass of water you drink throughout the day.
That way you know how much water you drank or whether your not drinking enough.
Other Meal Planning Ideas:
One of my favorite lunches/ breakfasts:
- Grilled English/ Canadian Bacon X4
- 1 cup Cottage cheese
- 1 Avocado
If it’s good enough for them it’s good enough for you!
Another Excellent Lunch/ Breakfast Option:
Sliced salmon, poached egg, spinach, feta cheese, salsa, on two pieces of toast
10 minutes to make.
