Plan, Measure, Prep, Record....

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Monday to Friday last week I preplanned all my meals and recorded everything in Spark. I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner with 3 snacks. I kept my calories within range (mostly in the lower range everyday!) and I loved having my days flow so easily! It took a lot of time in the kitchen prepping every night but my awesome husband has been helping me so it goes quicker.

Monday this week went great. I had all my meals ready to go for today on Sunday night. I didn't have to track anything during the day because it was all done ahead of time. Tonight I prepped and recorded the next two days and hopefully soon I'll be able to do most of the week ahead of time to cut down on the time I spend in the kitchen every night.

I've been stuck at my current weight for over 3 months. I've done so many different things to try to get past this plautea and nothing has been working. Then I got anger with my results and stopped tracking like I should. I was annoyed with how hard it was to make a salad with a toddler clinging to me when I'd rather be giving her attention. With this new planning ahead I can spend all day with her and not have to hurry to make food that's probably not healthy. I don't have to think about my calories or if I'm over. It's hard work but I'm hoping to see results again since I'm back to the basics.

Now I just need to add more workout time!!

I did hammer curls with a 15# weight for the first time last night. I had been using my 10s. Well I was able to do 1 set of 10 and then 2 sets of 6. Way better than I thought I could do! My goal over the next few weeks is to increase my reps until the 15s feel comfortable. Then I'll have to go shopping for some 20#s!

Never give up. Keep trying new things until you find what works. That's what I'm living by!
