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.

A Fitgirls challenge

Happy Monday to you!

 with all of the changes in my life recently and the knowledge that potentially some of my weight gain, and really my weight loss problems might be because of my sleep apnea I have decided to jump back on the fitgirl wagon and see if I can find my way back to a healthy lifestyle. For the next few months I will go through the current fitgirl e-books and document my journey. Starting with the Fitgirl Dextox, then the 28 day Jumpstart challenge, The fitkini challenge, then rounding off with the boot camp. Feel free to join me on the challenge and comment below if you do! Day 1 will be tomorrow 7/12!

I am going to start with the Fit Girl Detox! This is a quick one week detox plan to get you hyped up for the challenge ahead.  The week starts with a few smoothie recipes, for me even when I’ve been off plan I’ve enjoyed a quick smoothie in the morning to up my fruit and veggie intake and start the day off right.  Here is my favorite smoothie recipe so far, it’s packed full of greens but still masked by a nice smooth flavor.
