This month I decided to change things up a little in my everyday routines, so I decided to start meal prepping to stay on track with my eating and start my week off with a healthy, fresh mind set. Having all my meals planned out and my fridge deliciously stocked also makes me look really forward to my workouts for that week! Remember if you “fail to plan, plan to fail!”
What I learned from meal prepping
Less cheating! When I decided to meal prep last week, I made it a point to only purchase those items that are on my grocery list so this helps keep those little moments of weakness under control because guess what, if it’s not in my house, then I can’t eat it!
Saves you money. At least this is true for us! I don’t know about you, but before meal planning we tended to just wing it each night, either by running out to the store after work to make whatever we were in the mood for that night, ordering in or spending even more money on going out.
Helps meet your fitness goals. When you plan out your meals ahead of time not only are you learning portion control, but fueling your body with wholesome nutritional food just makes you want to work out that much more!
