Making a better ME Monday, 01/04/2016
Wow! Did I really just type that?? Seriously, time has just flown by for me in 2015 and already this year. I won't lie and say that I wish 2015 was longer or anything like that. I had two friends lose parents and a FB friend that passed just between Christmas day and New Year's Day, not to mention the friends that were diagnosed with cancer and things like that. I wish it were easy to make things better, but as we know, there are no easy fixes. This goes for weight loss and exercise, as well as getting organized or meal planning. To that end, I've really been trying to make sure I meal prep. I wasn't feeling 100% on Saturday (the day I have been trying to meal prep) so I decided to wait until Sunday to meal prep, which didn't turn out quite the way I planned. My DS25 had a blowout and needed my car. I had enough time to go to the store and start eggs in the oven when he called to ask. I don't feel totally prepared, but having the eggs and having stuff to make lunch out of, I feel much better than if I were not at all prepared. I am determined to make some changes to allow me to meet goal. Things I have realized:
- I need to have a back up plan;
- I need to get into the habit of checking my FitBit Surge and get into a routine to charge it.
I have to admit that I do like that I do not have to push any buttons or anything when I get ready to go to sleep. It's quite nice and convenient.
I will have to prepare some things tonight to be better prepared for later in the week. I like being prepared and, at least, having the ingredients to put meals together without too much stress. Are you a "meal by meal", "day by day", "plan but not specify time/day of eating" or "preplan all the way" kind of person?
Have a blessed Monday!
