Today i dare you to start planning for next week. This was the dare i threw out to 4 teams today...and here is my plan for the week.
Packing my breakfast, snack and lunch.
To pack for each meal-the checklist:
Breakfast-protein (soy butter, egg, etc)
grains (cereal, toast, etc)
milk (low fat milk, yogart, cheese, etc)
fruit (banana, grapes, strawberries)
Snack-anything i did not eat at breakfast (and there is always something)
Lunch-protein (tuna, chicken, beans, etc)
grains (rice, bread, etc)
Vegetable (broccoli, carrots, salad, etc)
fruit-(applesauce, peach, pear, etc)
milk-(cottage cheese, cheese, etc)
Snack-i did not eat at lunch (and there is usually something) or a 100 calorie snack pack
Dinner-same as lunch
Snack-if i really need one at this point, i will view where i am lacking, like needing 1 more milk product. If i am not lacking, i will eat a fruit or vegetable type snack, a 100 calorie snack pack, depending what i am "craving" at the time.
I also bought some healthier snacks. I will be dividing them up into serving sizes and in baggies for not only me, but the kids. This saves money from buying the snack packs, but makes it easier to keep to the portions.
I am also putting together a daily To Do list that will include my schedule-including exercise, what time and what kind.
