Today is Sunday with such a small, sad glimpse of sun. I think this day should be open to interpretation depending on the week and current conditions of earth. Therefore, today was Rainday in my book. Naming a day based on a condition is just setting it up for failure. It's like naming your kid Richie; there's a slight change he might be, there might even be days that he is, but there are just too many odds to beat in order to classify this as a good idea. Since I don't like the rain I have to find ways to cheer myself up. Today that cheer came in the form of weight lifting, meal prepping, green tea and dark chocolate covered pumpkin seeds (seriously, if you haven't had them, HAVE them) I also was lucky enough to be able to dedicate half of my day to homework; after taking a whole day off of work yesterday, I almost died this morning from stress which is what kicked me into gear. (Oh, the life of a D.S.) The main reason I wanted to write tonight is to remind everyone to meal prep this week! I'm telling you this is the secret to losing fat! If you have all of your individually packed meals ready to go for the week, you will succeed for multiple reasons.
1. You are going to eat them because you spent time,money, sweat and tears making them (I wrote tears because if you're like me, I burn myself at least 8 times before the job is done)
2. They make your life 15 times simpler, like if we were playing Super Mario, this is comparative to having the feather that makes you fly past the entire level. Yes it's that awesome
3. You will thank yourself so much when you come home exhausted from work/school and all you have to do is pop the top off of a cheap, more than likely bent, tupperware.
4. You are going to start feeling leaner and better within the first few days!
Sunday is not a day of rest, it is a day of prep!
Well, then you can rest I guess. Just felt the need for something inspirational there.
Here is the pic of my meals for the week. I also have some chicken and turkey left that is not pictured, but this will have me pretty set for the week. I am going on my third week of this and have already seen drastic changes! DOOOO ITTTT
All I have is ground turkey, chicken thighs, broccoli, steamed mixed veggies and sweet potato.
Just relax and KISS
Keep It Simple Sweetheart
