So cliche however ever so true, fail to plan and you will certainly plan to fail.  I work full time as a project manager in the Pharmaceutical industry and often work 45-55 hour work weeks, in addition I also work for for one of the most well respected traveling makeup company’s in the tri-state area  on the weekends and teach spin classes at 5am during the week.

No matter how “busy” I may seem there are three things I hold at ultimate importance, the first is my relationship with God, the second is my marriage,the last thing is how we treat our bodies.  I believe that our bodies are a temple and we should treat them as such, so i genuinely care about the food that goes into our mouths and living an active and healthy lifestyle. Some days this requires a bit more effort however I have never regretted a workout nor have I ever regretted taking 2 hours out of my week to food prep.

Here are a few keys I use to ensure I start the week on the right foot:

  • Find a system that works for you! I generally never take a job on Sundays so I use that day to enjoy time with my husband, make a run to whole foods and prep some food in the crock pot or oven for the week.
  • Don’t over complicate the process, bake your favorite proteins and veggies  in bulk, keep it simple.
  • Pack in your Tupperware and load into your fridge, you will be less likely to reach for something unhealthy when you have something delicious and nutritious in the fridge :)

Enjoy and don’t stress, sometimes I get to prep sometimes I don’t, either way I make an effort and at the end of the day that’s what matters.

 

Stay Fit, Stay Healthy,
