My plan for the next few days

Friday, January 25, 2013

This is just a general outline of my goal for meals and workouts for the next couple of days. I figure on Tuesday I will reassess what the food in the house looks like and come up with another few days worth of meals. I have not really planned meals in the past year because I find it to be time consuming. I have to say its one of my least favorite things to do but it also helps me a lot so I need to reintroduce it.

I am also planning my workouts for the next few days. I am going to try to be specific in not only what I am going to do but also when I am going to do it on that day. That way maybe I can avoid getting all the way to bedtime and saying "oh crap, I never worked out"... I am keeping my workouts light because I have yet to go to my post pregnancy doctors appt. Even though I feel pretty good I want to get the green light from my doctor at my appt. on Tuesday before I bump up the intensity.

    This sounds pretty similar to my plans! I am gluten free, and I have an elliptical too!

Great goals! I'm a list maker and I just love it when I can see everything laid out like that!

    Planning has never been my strong suit in this myself. but I love what you have done and I like the planned two snacks daily. You just may have something there and I may just need to follow suit.

    It's a time investment, but you'll definitely recoup the investment in multiple ways. When I do a chore the night before or the day before I consider it as a "gift" to my Future Self.

Future Self usually sighs and says "Thanks" to responsible old Past Self!

My downfall..always has working out. I can't get motivated! Soon though, I know it will hit me!

Great job girl...

    That all sounds like a great plan to me Jess! You can do this!
I just decided today to give up on tracking my food just yet. I have a big appetite with nursing, and everything going into my mouth is healthy, so it's all good for right now. I don't need to stress about that - heck, Carly isn't even a week old yet anyway!

I look forward to goal setting with you real soon! Keep up the great work!
