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.
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!

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.
