The last few months I have been eating so bad and I am definitely feeling it in my mood and energy so David and I are giving meal prepping a go for the New Year! Here’s what we are doing for our first week of meal planning and we’d love to hear about any meal prepping meals you love! If you don’t know what meal prepping is, you basically start on Sunday and make big portions of everything at once and then divide it all out into tupperware or meal prep containers like what we are using in the post. This week for lunch we made chicken cauliflower fried rice, steamed carrots, squash, and an apple arugula salad. Breakfasts have been quick things like avocado toast or parfaits with Greek yogurt, granola, and berries. We haven’t started meal prepping dinners yet because I am trying to ease into this process so I don’t get crazy overwhelmed, haha. At the start of the week we also made a really big bowl of fruit salad, cucumber, turkey & hummus sandwiches, and celery and peanut butter sticks so we can have healthy snacks on hand. I like this because it’s not about calorie counting or anything like that, but I get to eat healthy and focus on portion control so I feel better and have more energy. If I am craving sugar, I have some chocolate covered peanuts or an Otter Pop or something, I haven’t cut out sugar and don’t want to make myself feel bad if I have it… but definitely trying hard to limit it as much as possible.
I will talk about my work out routine I have been doing to get back in shape in a later post but David committed to working out with me every day so I can stay motivated. He is really good about working out 5-to-6 days a week and I know if I work out with him I won’t try to cheat and end my work out early. 😉 However, in preparation of working out, I got these great new EXP CORE gear. I love having cute work out clothes that flatter my body to motivate me to want to get up and do it. I have found that if I put work out clothes on after A goes to bed then I know at some point I will work out because I can’t use the excuse of not wanting to go change. 😉
Let me know if any of you have meal prepping ideas for David and I to try! Will definitely blog about any we try and love.
