Thoughts on preplanning


Sunday, December 02, 2012

There need to be steps taken by me in order to prepare for planning my meals a week at a time. I need to start by planning each meal. This will require time each week to fill in a chart by hand. There are so many resources I created for myself when I did the Herbal Magic program back in 2001 and reached my lowest healthy adult weight of 142 pounds. I was taking time every week to write down the individual items in each meal for the entire week. I would create snack bags with the appropriate portion of items that coincided with my "menu". This was a big success for me! My steps to take in December: Make a list of 7 breakfasts, 7 lunches, 7 dinners and 21 snacks to have on hand each week. I am not going to break those meals down just yet, just list them out for each of the weeks this month. It will be difficult during the holidays as I will be eating at family gatherings. Ahead of time making an estimate of what to eat will make tracking easier, and eating the preplanned amounts only easier too! In addition, I will continue to track no matter what, 5/7 days a week whether I am able to maintain the planning or not. Stay tuned for updates on my progress!

  Menu planning is a must for me, but I often let what I have planned slip by the wayside. I sometimes overestimate my energy for cooking during the week. One thing I am trying is planning a no cooking night, eating leftovers or things I already have on hand like frozen soups. emoticon

    That is great! It sounds like you've got a great plan.
