Yesterday was my turn to cook, Big Boy has an after school activity that the DW coaches, so the system is that typically, I prepare the little dudes favorite meal, which is a tofu dish.
Start up the rice cooker, look for the tofu...well, that's not going to help matters much. We don't have any. Excellent.
It reminded me of HEALTHYGRAMMY49's blog regarding her trip to the Farmer's Market. Load up on the produce.
Luckily, DW had loaded up on the produce. Threw together something, quarter pound local grass fed ground beef; carrots, green beans, sauteed onions & garlic, purple kale, brown button mushrooms, couple of teaspoons of red miso. Bed of brown jasmine rice.
Adaptability needs to be part of our programs, sometimes even the best intentions fall through, but if we build in redundancies and safety nets, we can structure our programs and healthy lifestyles so that we don't go back to where we don't want to be.
Plan to succeed, so that your secondary plan or tertiary plans are just as good as your primary plan. Plan to win!
I've been lackadaisical on the sleep element of my health. This is nothing new, been a very challenging element for me in regards to time management and carving out enough time for quality sleep, because I have a tendency to stay up too late. I was drinking Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea (w/ Valerian) and was finding that I was growing dependent on it and waking up groggy. This is unhelpful. I was treating a symptom, rather than the underlying cause, so I've been working on unplugging before bed, getting to be earlier, and just drinking chamomile tea (sans Valerian) to unwind.
We have to make sure our health/fitness/wellness outlook is holistic, in the sense that it is important to attend to the many elements that are interconnected with our health. Each element/variable has an affect on our goals, so we should endeavor to be mindful of what is happening.
Keep striving, keep visualizing, keep pursuing your goals!
