I thought I’d share a little anecdotal evidence for why it’s important to be prepared! I’ve had a busy week with (who hasn’t) and am leaving at 8am and getting home around 8pm. I’m usually well prepped with plenty of food to keep me going throughout the day because 12 hours is a long time to go-go-go without enough food.
But yesterday, I didn’t bring enough with me. I ended up getting a huge sandwich on campus around 3pm (pretty healthy-turkey, cheese, tons of veggies on sourdough with mustard. NO mayo). Not bad at all, but I couldn’t track the macros. I wasn’t too worried, and figured I’d be able to stay full til 8. But I got home and did a few things around the house and all of a sudden I was ravenously hungry. It’s been a looong time since I’ve gotten to that point. I made a quick flat out pizza, and while it was in the oven I was shoving my face full of skinny pop popcorn (my new weakness) again, not a bad snack, but I felt out of control. Even after my dinner I still kept snacking. Ugh.
Anyway, today is a new day- but it was a great reminder why I do what I do. It works!
Annd here are some progress pics 🙂 working on getting lean and STRONG. Finishing up my 6 week program this week, and trying to figure out my plan for staying on track during the holidays. I’ll keep you posted on that. [i’m kind of embarrassed to post these on here, but hey it’s my blog haha.]
and this was from September. Even though they don’t look that different, I’ve noticed a HUGE difference in my strength and energy, so I’ll call that a win.
Happy almost Friday! I’m so excited for the weekend 🙂
Do you have any tips for staying prepared during long days? Any go-to meals?
