Weekly Meal and Fitness Plan

Another week means it is time for another weekly meal and fitness plan.  My personality is a planner by nature… so I thrive on routine, schedule and structure.  Knowing what I am eating and what is on my fitness plan for the day helps me not only stay on track with my plan… but is less stressful.

Last week’s meal and fitness plan, was a yummy success.  Although with my unexpected traveling back to the Midwest for my grandmother’s funeral… I had more meal (and ingredients) left over to carry through to this week.  I plan on carrying those meals over to this week.

healthy eating, skip the diet

This past weekend, when traveling and being on the go with the funeral and family gatherings… my eating was NOT on par.  It was southern comfort food at its finest.  Lots of friend, saucy, processed, and fast food.  My stomach is still upset with me for eating (and drinking lots of pop).  It happens.  The good thing about each new day is that I can start fresh… again!

Restarting this week with a fresh goal in mind, I will be trying to focus on eating clean… and drinking LOTS of water.  I know that there is no diet that will do what eating healthy does.  Skip the diet.  Just eat healthy!

"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going." -Jim Rohn #WWloves

I have the motivation and drive.  I am trying to make planning my meals and fitness for the week a habit.  I find that when my day is somewhat planned for me, I am less stressed and disorganized.  I like knowing what I am preparing for dinner.  I like knowing what workout I am doing that day… rather than walking aimlessly around the gym or putting off my workout because I don’t feel like doing anything.  Having a plan is a good thing.

Do you plan your meals and fitness plan ahead for the week?

    JUST EAT HEALTHY – MY motto!!! Sadly, there are a lot of people in this world who just don’t know what that means. My friend just text messaged me asking if onions are healthy. I told her I love cooked onions and she replied, isn’t cooking them bad for you? —- Just one example!

    You’ve got a great plan for the week! I know what you mean about needing to get back to healthy eating after indulging while being back home. I’m just finishing up a trip to my hometown, and my food choices were yummy, but not the healthiest. I’m looking forward to getting back on track!

    Ohh lots of goodness in your meal plan! Yum. I was planning out our meals for a while but hubby likes to fly by the seat of his pants. I’m going to try to get back to planning though. Would really like to do meal prep too but he’s not too keen on that.

    I usually do plan out my fitness although I keep it wide open to choose what I feel like doing any given day.
