Good Morning my friends! How was your weekend? I don’t know about you, but it just flew by to me and then it was over. I mean, I can’t believe that it’s Monday again. I am off this coming weekend and guess what my friends…..it’s a long one! I will also be getting my braces on in exactly one week and a day.
Three rounds of the following:
1/2 mile run
25-50 air squats
So I have about another 10 pounds to go to be where I want to be. Hear me out, I don’t want to lose the 10 pounds for vain reasons, I want to lose them so that I can better function in my body and feel good. I feel TONS better these days! I mean, I can’t even tell you. After many months of trying to figure out what works for me, I think I have found a balance. That’s the most important thing to remember. What works for me, may not work for someone else.
Some of the tips that I have picked up the last few months are:
- if it tempts you, don’t keep it in the house. I love sweets! But I know that they do tempt me, so I can’t keep them in the house. Some can just go with one, but I can’t do that.
- Go easy on yourself……emotionally.
- water, water, water.
- get fresh new ideas. I follow a lot of great blogs and I always love finding new ways to do things. Trying new healthy foods.
- Follow your own heart. I find that when I am at peace with myself, things really do work together.
I think that I have lived off of this for two months now! Oatmeal and almond butter!
So I want to be better at meal planning. Breakfast is never hard and I get my lunches/snacks together the night before, but it’s dinners that I have an issue with. I only have to cook for myself and you think that this would be easy, but it’s actually not. I have turkey burgers, chicken, fish as the main course, but I usually don’t know which one I will have until I get home from work. I want to fix this. How do you meal plan?? If you are cooking for yourself, how do you meal plan? What nights do you get your meals together and how long does it usually take you to pick them out?
Since I get home so late (after 6:00) it’s really hard to want to cook anything. That’s why I really love just throwing the said above on the George Foreman or in the oven.
Any suggestions or ideas are very welcome!!
I am off to get ready for work! Have a super day!
