If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on the move. It’s been a BUSY few weeks and I haven’t really been home to meal prep. There was a week that I prepped for two weeks but that only happened one. I’ve been traveling and missing the grocery store trips. Everything hasn’t been tip top shape. And I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t been eating the best food either.
A couple of weeks ago Willie and I slammed a whole pizza and enjoyed it…but I think my pizza need may have been met that day. The picture above is not the pizza we slammed the other day; it was much bigger than this. (I’m just trying to be honest.) I can’t hide the truth anymore because I haven’t really been open about my unhealthy choices lately. I know it’s all about living that 80/20 rule but maybe I should share more with you about that 20 and just keep it real. It is about moderation and that’s just something I need to remember and hopefully I’ll be able to remind you of that too.
My alcohol consumption has also increased. I guess it’s kind of a big deal to me because I completely cut out the alcohol so it just seems like I’m drinking more. I went from none to 1-2 drinks a week.
Yesterday I blogged about the great thing about Mondays and said I was going to start fresh and do some meal prep this week. Yes we were traveling but I made the time to go to grocery store and cook all the meals for the week.
We are having baked cod with a teryaki glaze with wild rice and green beans & carrots (peas & corn for Willie) for lunch. For dinner, we are having turkey burgers with the same teryaki glaze in salad. Breakfast is eggs and oatmeal, that will never change. I also got some grapes and strawberries for snacks along with our usual haul of greek yogurt and apples. It really didn’t take that long and it’s such a relief to have all the meals ready to go. It’s amazing how quickly you forget how amazing it feels to have everything together.
And I haven’t been posting much about my workouts but I want you to know I’m still on it. I’m still teaching my cycle classes and of course I’ve been running. I’m on a tiny break from running because I’ve been going hard lately and I think I have developed a little bit of ITBS. I’ve felt it coming on the past few weeks but I was trying to power through for my marathons. Now it’s time to take a tiny break and rehab and just work on some overall strength and stretching.
Did you meal prep this week? What did you cook up?
