Food Prep and Meal Planning

Meal planning is not best done by walking around Kroger and seeing what’s good. Yet, that’s what I find myself doing more often than not.

Even worse is giving up and picking up a pizza or worse, fried chicken. And my family loves some fried chicken!

I have not been able to lose any weight for the past year. I have been working out 5 to 6 days a week since May when Orangetheory Fitness opened in Germantown. I have lost inches, and believe me, I’m happy about that but there are 30 pounds hanging around that need to go. So…

Meal planning and food preparation have become my new best friend. No longer will I stand in front of the fridge and wonder what I can eat. I have prepped snacks for the week as well as green smoothies or refrigerator oatmeal for breakfast.

Ready to go bags full of one serving each of fruits, veggies and nuts. No excuses.

Tomorrow, I will post my weekly weigh-in which will serve as my starting point (eek). I have to be honest, I’m not thrilled with where my weight stands and even less thrilled to be sharing it with you but I am counting on the accountability of this blog to inspire me to lose.
