Sunday Well Spent – Food Prep

Food prep only has to be this huge production if you want it to be.

If you are like me and don’t like huge productions, or eating food that was prepared too many days ago, tackling just a few things will still set you up for success!

Since my husband usually handles dinner, which becomes lunches, I really only need to focus on the food I start my day with (because when I start it with the right foods, the rest of the day flows… when I don’t, my sugars are all over the place and as a result, my mood is too 😉)

This morning I focused on my fruits, steel cut oats with pomegranates or blueberries, and hard boiled eggs. When you pair that with bananas and other stuff that’s already good to go, you are golden.

And don’t tell me you don’t have an hour – you do 😉

Move It Monday – Be Willing To Adapt!

I’m a planner.

I learned long ago that if I leave my fitness/wellness up to chance, things are not gonna go as smoothly as they could.

This includes having an idea of what workouts I’ll be doing for the week, if I’m not in the middle of a program.

I had planned to focus on running more in the next couple of weeks while I wait for Sara to finish LIIFT 4, because the air is finally freakin’ running-friendly… and I’d like to {finally} finish the 175 mile challenge.

Buuuuuut oopsie, I forgot to take into account that it’s not light out until later now, and I personally don’t enjoy running when it’s pitch black out (lack of a major sense makes that a little unnerving, for me) and since by the time it’s light out I’m done and showering, we have to plan B it, so that’s what I did!

Gotta have some degree of flexibility and willingness to adapt, or life will be a lot more of a challenge for ya!

• ps, Sara and I are doing another round of LIIFT 4 starting September 24 if you’d like to join us! •

 

Meal Prep Monday!

I have known for a while how important meal prep is, but it is extra apparent how necessary it is while I am on the Reset – there is no way you can wing this kind of program and not run yourself ragged (effectively defeating the purpose of the Reset anyways!)

I have found doing it in batches works best, as I don’t like to eat food that was prepared a week prior. I do a big Sunday prep, and then a Wednesday night prep, and I do weekend meals as I go (unless I have plans) because weekends are a little easier to be able to cook fresh!

There is something very satisfying about knowing your food is all set, you have healthy stuff to reach for, and you don’t have to run around trying to figure it all out the day of.

One of the things I prepped this weekend was this delicious roasted root medley – carrots, sweet potatoes, onions, and beets. Seasoned to perfection and so tasty!

Do you prep your food?
