This last week I only exercised a couple times and ate terribly…I earned it right after running a half marathon? I went to pho Monday, sushi Tuesday, Chipotle Wednesday…we won’t even continue.
But, it’s time to take control of my eating again and start this week out right!
On Sundays I typically sit and plan my dinners for the whole week (last week was an exception), write down exactly what I need to buy for ingredients then go to the store and ONLY buy what I need for the week. Doing this has seriously saved me SO MUCH money. I can usually do a full week of meals for about $60 and that includes breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and dinner. STICK TO A LIST AND HAVE A PLAN!
There’s a saying “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail” which is so true with eating healthy and on a budget through a busy work week.
I’m going to start sharing my weekly dinner plan with you all every Sunday and highly encourage you to plan your meals as well. I write my meal plan on a magnetic white board that I stick on my refrigerator, mostly so if Bryce wants to know what’s for dinner he can just look HA! More of my personal recipes are coming very soon, so stay tuned 😊
