Fit Girl’s Challenge – why meal prep is important

Do you have those weeks, where you’re gun ho to get something done?  You’re excited, you’re  motivated, and you have no real-time or plan in place to get accomplished what you want to? Yep that was me last week, thankfully most of the food will keep over to use again, but it leaves me frustrated and with another sour taste in my mouth for my own inability to follow through with what I’ve started.  My failure was not taking the time to properly prep my meals for the challenge last week and when faced with the choice of healthy eating or throwing caution to the wind, guess what I chose?

With that, I got on the scale yesterday and ate a huge portion of humble pie, beat myself up for a few minutes, then got to my fridge and tried to salvage what I could from last weeks debacle. I personally think that meal prep is the most important part of your weight loss plan, I’ve read a few articles recently that say that 70%-90% of losing weight comes from what you eat, and I think it all starts with making sure you’re food is prepared and easy to make!

First up, smoothie prep, how much easier can things get than, putting fruit in a bag and freezing it for smoothies/juice for the week. I don’t always go by the plans when smoothies are involved,  mostly because I like to utilize all my fruit from my farm fresh box and I like to freeze what may go bad before I eat it.

Same concept with the watermelon, it was getting really ripe so I balled it up, threw it in a bowl and strategically placed it somewhere both the husband and I would go back to it over the course of the afternoon/evening.  Needless to say the bowl was empty before we went to bed.

lastly, lunch bowls, the first few days, are “Sushi Undressed” it’s very tasty with a chicken substitute, instead of shrimp (not shown).  And now I’ve got a decent start to my week and a better idea of what my schedule looks like to keep me going throughout the week as well.
