This week has probably been one of the best as far as nutrition and fitness goes. I finally found a caloric range to stick with, one number for days that I work out, and another (smaller) number to stick with for days that I rest. I have been sticking with those numbers for about a week now and I feel good. I think my next goal will be to tackle the skill of meal preparation. You have to plan for success if you want it! Over the weekend a friend and I spent about four hours making all sorts of meals and chopping vegetables. The problem with so much meal prep is then finding room in the fridge and freezer for all the containers. But if storage is my biggest problem, I think I have it pretty good. I also have to say that meal prep is so much more fun with good music and good company.
This week is my spring break but in the wonderful land of Carrie-ville there is never such thing as a break. I am always going, going, going. I am trying to get in 40 hours at my job while school isn’t in the way and then getting in my 30 hours at my internship here at Shane weight loss camp for adults. But like I said, you have to plan for success, so earlier this week I wrote down everything that I had scheduled in my planner and I scheduled my workouts around that. I read a quote that said “Workouts are important meetings that you make with yourself, and bosses don’t cancel.” I will not cancel a workout on myself even if it means getting up at 5 am. So now, my question for you is…..How much are you willing to deal with for success?
