I’m planning and plotting… hoping and wishing… that things will be different this time…
What am I talking about? Fitness and weight loss! I know that they will be because I am ready to take on the challenge with the help of my friend Jo over at Mummy’sKnee (who will already be a week ahead by the time I receive my plan). We have discussed and supported one another a lot this week, positivity seeping from our pores and building a camaraderie that even Spider-Man could not penetrate!
In the picture above, you’ll see my “Fit Book”, which my husband bought for me last year and I have yet to use. I plan on using this to plan my weekly meals and chart my exercise that I will do over and above the HIT given by my BodyCoach Plan.
I did a practice run of meal prepping last wk, using some vegan recipes from one of my favourite cook books, made by “The Happy Pear“. I LOVE this cook book and I love how they started their business and healthier lifestyle. I would highly recommend it and watching their YouTube videos because some recipes are so quick and easy, not to mention nutritious!
Here are some of the meals that I made;
They helped me to balance my macros and make sure that I was getting everything that I needed nutrition wise. I didn’t find myself dipping in sugar levels and therefore I no longer needed to have the cup of coffee or chocolate biscuit in the afternoon which has been my norm for longer than I care to admit.
I am also finding that food prep makes me less inclined to crave other foods, like take aways as a treat and I don’t feel the need to say “ach, I’ll just have 1 treat night “. I don’t need to because no take away is going to measure up to homemade “fakeaways”. I don’t have that bloated feeling and I know exactly what’s going into my body, plus saving money at the same time.
So I go to bed now and eagerly await my emails coming through tomorrow… I shall dream of weights, vegetables and all things healthy! Actually, no.. I’m not that bad… yet! I just can’t wait to get the plan through!
