Planning is the Key

Monday, December 12, 2011

I have lots of little plans to help me achieve my weight loss - plans to do this, plans to do that, plans to do this again, plans to do that again, I am sure there are others out there who know what I am talking about. Now, all I have to do is put them all together and I'll be unstoppable - well, that's the plan.

I have discovered that when I plan my meals and have them ready and in the fridge, this whole weight loss eating thing is so much easier.  Now, when I say weight loss eating, I don't mean low fat, low calorie, low carb. rice cakes that taste like cardboard, I'm talking about fresh, healthy food that has nutrients and is beneficial to me.  I like carrots, so why not have some carrot sticks waiting for me in the fridge? 

I find it so much easier to just cut everything up the night before when I am already in the kitchen preparing dinner.  This way I have good, healthy snacks ready and waiting to be eaten.  I often can't be bothered to prepare food and end up just eating whatever is easier, which is always, always higher in calories and a lot less beneficial.  I think it's what Jill calls "empty calories" and yes, I say Jill cause I like to pretend that we are best friends - Jillian Michaels is just way to formal.
Hahahaha, you're so funny Jane
So, planning it is!  A little extra time in the kitchen each night is really worth a day of good, wholesome eating :)


I jumped on the treadmill this morning and I loved it, the time just flew by.  I chose an incline workout (#11) cause I wasn't in the mood for speed, but I think that was because I did a combination workout, which was mostly speed (#2) yesterday morning.

  1. I love it when you find what works for you - that is 90% of the battle won !!! Good work.

    I am envious of you running - I will get back there I know, I just need to be patient. Tonight, weather permitting, I am hoping to get out on the bike and see how my knee holds up - it didn't do too well in high heels on Saturday night !!!

    Have a great day !

  2. Your photo is hilarious!! Yep planning is definitely something I will work on this time :)

    Tell Jill I said hi and that I miss her on the latest biggest loser.

  3. Awesome photo! I love your healthy eating attitude - fresh, healthy, nutritious - that's the key.

    Have a wonderful holiday!!
