Spring break is over. Allow me to sing you the song of my people...
But I am clinging, desperately, to the fact that there are only 6 weeks left until summer vacation. I think I can, I think I can...
With the return of school and my alarm clock (yack) also came the return of breakfast/lunch prep. Which I loathe. But it is essential to sticking to a diet and is one of the reasons I do much better when I am in school as opposed to off for vacations.
So last night I hunkered down in the kitchen and over about an hours time cranked out:
-4 servings of eggs whites, mushrooms and avocado
-5 days worth of salads with egg whites, tomato, tuna or chicken, sweet pepper and avocado
-5 days worth of snacks (sugar snap peas, carrots, hummus and cocoa covered almonds (my newest addiction-ah-mazing!))
-grilled chicken and mushrooms to pair with some Steam Fresh veggies tonight for dinner post boot camp
It is not an hour I enjoy but I do greatly enjoy not having to spend time each night packing and rather condensing it into one block of time. I also LOVE being able to open the fridge in the morning and have everything ready to go into the lunchbox. This is convenient and increases the chances I won't make bad food choices, since the good ones are already there for me. It's a win win.
And one of my best tips-wanna lose weight and make sure you're on target with eating clean? Plan & prep folks. Plan and prep.
