Spark Coach Activity- 2morrow meal plan

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I am not a planner. I really just go with the flow in all things. Sometimes it works and sometimes it's an epic failure. Sadly, being disorganized and scattered presents many challenges beyond just meal planning. I've taken fancy organization classes that seem to motivate me for a little while but, I always seem to fall back into procrastinating and failing to plan.

During my most successful Spark moments, I can credit my laser focus on being more organized. Planning my gym time, packing my clothes the night before and packing my lunch or prepping veggies are the formula for weight loss week.

When I am left to "wing it" I eat out impulsively, fail to pack post-gym work clothes, get in bed to late and or all of the above! So, I know the value of preparation. I am just not really good at it. Today's activity is to blog about tomorrow's meals and how I prep for it.
Well, as usual my day got away from me and I just started Spark Coach. However through sheer luck, I have planned my meals for tomorrow but they just aren't great:
Valentines Day breakfast- red velvet pancakes I bought on impulse today because I never saw that before, turkey bacon and eggs.
I made it to SAMs club today. I plan to marinate then grill pork loins served with green beans. Dinner will be baked salmon, roasted Brussel sprouts and salad if I remember to pick up arugula. If not, cucumber and tomato salad!

Challenge complete.

I hope all my Sparklers have a phenomenal day! I am sending you only the healthiest and best wishes on Valentines Day and everyday!!!

    I have the same problems myself. About to begin a 12 week challenge and your blog just made me realize that if I'm going to be successful I am going to have to PLAN!!!

    Thanks for the blog!!!

    Organization is not my strong suit either. But, we'll get there! Your menu sounds wonderful, except for the Brussel sprouts. lol Have a wonderful Valentines Day!

    Congratulations on making a plan. Often that is half the battle. Happy Valentine's Day!

    I sort of have the same issue, but I find that if I just concentrate on the very next thing then it doesn't seem as overwhelming. One meal at a time. For me this is a lifetime thing and not a "planned" effort to complete in a specific amount of time. It makes slacking a little easier. It took me several years to get to 225. I have no illusions about taking off the weight in a few months. I'm concentrating on getting healthy as I lose the weight and how it may alleviate some medical issues. If I slip up or slack off I get on board the next day as best as I can. Sorry, didn't mean to go on about myself, I'm just empathizing I guess. But great that you were able to get your meal plan together! emoticon
