A couple of weeks ago I was chatting with someone who messaged me about my food prep post, saying “I wish I had time to meal prep!” and so since I was curious, I asked how she spends her time, because not to be a jerk, but this person is very active on social media – mine and her own, which eats up a lot of our free time, but people don’t seem to realize that…
So she said she works (I do, too), and she has to clean her house (I do, too), run errands (yep) and stuff like that, which are totally valid…
But it’s worth noting that my food prep takes me an hour. Yes, I realize I’m lucky not to have to prep for dinner and such, but to act like you don’t have an hour to set yourself up for success is just not realistic – you DO have an hour, you are just dedicating it to something you find more important.
Sorry, but I’m not sugarcoating stuff anymore – you MAKE TIME for what’s important, so if keeping up to date with Sally’s dating life is more important than prepping your food, BE HONEST with yourself about that.
Because, we all GET the same 24 hours in a day, we just don’t all UTILIZE them the same way.
STOP making excuses and START making effort, and you’ll find you DO have time.
(I say all of this with love, of course)
And what do you know – today the same person sent me a text with a pic of food and said she was getting ready to prep it all! I’m a proud mama bear right now 💕
My prep is done – how about you?
