Food Prep and Meal Plan for the week of April 13

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey everyone,  It is with a bit of stress that I write this.  This week I am really changing up my meal plan to be in accordance with the recommended 21 Day Fix.   As a creature of habit I really struggle with changing my meal plan.  Not only that as a person who has lost a considerable amount of weight, I am so afraid that changing things may reverse my progress. None the less I am stepping out on a ledge and hoping to give it a try.  So here is what I prepped today

  • ground chicken burgers on the grill
  • oatmeal, egg bake (ingredients included oatmeal, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and cottage cheese)
  • grilled asparagus
  • steamed broccoli

Here is my meal plan

Meal 1- Shakeology with a banana, oatmeal with peanut butter

Meal 2 Oatmeal, egg bake.  I had planned on sharing the recipe but it still needs some tweaking.  As soon as I get it to where I want it I will share a recipe

Meal 3- Ground Chicken patty and asparagus or broccoli

Meal 4- Sunflower seeds and 2 tangerines

Meal 5- Ground chicken patty with cheese, and asparagus

Meal 6- Oatmeal with Peanut butter

Food prep and meal plan for week of April 6th

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey Everyone!!! This week I will be starting the 21 Day Fix.  While I will be loosely following the plan provided by the program this first week, what I will be eating this week is more like the 3 day jump start menu that is provided.  It is going to be a busy week, so I had to step up my food prep organization game.

Today I am prepping

  • grilled chicken
  • eggs with salsa
  • Baked asparagus
  • Extra lean ground turkey prepared as patties

In order to make meal prep as painless as possible I try to have all of my meats cooking at once.  This saves time.  I also fix my eggs in batches and divide it to save time.

I usually eat 6 meals a day and I prep for 4 of those meals.  This week here is a general snapshot of what I will be eating.  Keep in mind, this is set for my body to help reach my goals.

I am now doing a Hip Hop Abs challenge group in addition to the 21Day Fix and my meal plan is based on what I need to be successful with this challenge group.

Here is what I will be eating:

Meal 1- (after fasted cardio) Shakeology with 1/2 a banana, and 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Meal 2- Eggs with salsa and oatmeal

Meal 3, Meal 4, and 5 One  of my prepared meats with baked asparagus

Meal 6- Eggs, or greek yogurt with pbs, or a low carb protein pancake (for recipe click HERE)

Post workout- shake

Give yourself 21 days!!!- Take the challenge

th (1)

Hey Everyone,  Today I want to talk about the importance of making time for yourself and trusting yourself enough to actually let change happen.  I remember before I was actually successful at weight loss, i didn’t even let myself start.  Before I would actually get started I already had myself convinced that I shouldn’t try because I wouldn’t be able to be successful. It was only until I found the right support system that I was able to get it together and actually make steps toward being truly happy with myself and my body.  So I am challenging all of you, Give yourself 21 days to …​

  • Learn healthy habits​
  • Start to exercise​
  • Learn portion control​
  • Make a complete change​
  • Finally take control ​
  • Transform your life​

I will be there with you every step of the way.

  • The Group starts April 6th​
  • You will get to be a part of a free online support group​ to help with motivation accountability
  • You will be able to work with your own online health and fitness coach​
  • You will get a easy to follow meal plan and exercise program for beginners all the way to advanced​

You can do this, and now can be your time to make it happen.  What have you go to lose?  GIVE YOURSELF 21 DAYS!!

Food prep and meal plan for the week of March 23

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey Everyone!!! This week my meal prep is going to be a bit different. I will only work 2 days this week so I will only be preparing some things for 2 days.  Nonetheless, I will be preparing meat for the whole week.

Today I am prepping

In order to make meal prep as painless as possible I try to have all of my meats cooking at once.  This saves time.  I also fix my eggs in batches and divide it to save time.  When it comes to steaming my veggies I always  have microwave steam bags like these on hand because they make steaming veggies SO easy.

I usually eat 6 meals a day and I prep for 4 of those meals.  This week here is a general snapshot of what I will be eating.  Keep in mind, this is set for my body to help reach my goals.

I am now doing a Hip Hop Abs challenge group and my meal plan is based on what I need to be successful with this challenge group.

Here is what I will be eating:

Meal 1- (after fasted cardio) Shakeology with a tbsp of peanut butter, and 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Meal 2- Eggs with salsa

Meal 3, Meal 4 – one of my prepared meats with veggies

Meal 5- High Protein. peanut butter apple parfait (Click HERE for recipe)

Meal 6- Low Carb Brownie with 1 tbsp of Peanut butter (Click HERE for recipe)

Post workout- shake

Why Shakeology works for me

I have always been very skeptical when it comes to Shakeology.  Maybe it is the cheapskate in side of me saying NO!, but I never really wanted to take a chance and try it.  Finally after much thought, and reading a very inspiring blog I decided to give it a try.  After just 4 days of using it, I was a believer

While many people do use Shakeology to lose weight, I can’t say whether or not it has helped me or not in that aspect. Primary reason being I don’t weigh myself. I did not start using Shakeology to lose weight. I don’t share much about this because, well its king of gross but my whole life (practically) I have suffered from chronic constipation. It has gotten so bad sometimes that I have even had to go to the hospital. I have tried countless remedies (both prescription and over the counter), visited countless specialists (both in the US and in Mexico), and tried countless diet changes but I have never found anything that helps enough to continue using it. Since the day after starting Shakeology, I have officially had a BM every day. YAY!!! While this will not seem like a big thing for some people, this is a huge improvement from my once or twice a week, many times laxative induced, struggles.

To do a little experiment, I skipped my Shakeology for a couple of days.  For the days following this I had no BM’s, and my normal gas and bloating returned. This is why after just a week, I am completely sold on Shakeology and really can’t (or at least don’t want to) imagine my life without it.  Shakeology has been completely life changing for me!!
