A couple weeks ago I wrote a post about Meal Planning that gave an overview of different ways to go about your meal prep. Eating healthy involves planning and preparation. You have to put in the work every week just like you do with everything else in life. Your training, your job, your family, etc. By taking the time to develop heathy eating habits and a routine into your daily life, you set yourself up for success. And the more you do it, the easier it gets. This week I'm going to talk about simple ways to set yourself up for a week of success.
The easiest way to stay on track with your diet is to plan ahead and meal prep. It's simple. If you have good healthy food cooked and ready to eat, you're much more likely to stay on track. Has lunch time ever rolled around and you forgot to pack food, so you wind up at a restaurant trying to make a healthy choice, only to get more food than you need, or food that's cooked in too much oil, or loaded with dressing? Sure you can eat out and still eat healthy, but in the long run, packing your lunches and meal prepping your dinners is going to help you achieve your goals a hell of a lot faster (and save you money). Whether your goal is to lead a healthy lifestyle, lose weight (or gain weight), improve your athletic performance, prep for a compeition, or look good for a big event, this is the not so secret, secret!
Spring is officially here and that means its barbecue season! At least in my book. If I can cook it on the barbecue I'm probably going to. Because things just taste better on a grill don't they? I'm also so excited for everything I have coming this spring and summer. Last week my mom, dad and grandma all came over to help work in my yard. It needed a lot of work and every time I went out there I was so overwhelmed. In one day we did what would have taken me weeks. It was fun and the sun was out and now my yard looks great.
