What do you do when you have a test or exam or a presentation at work? You prepare, right?
Just as you prepare for a major test or presentation, you should prepare for your week to minimize stress and to have a successful week. My Mom always taught me to lay out my clothes at the beginning of the week. I still struggle with this concept but I have improved over the years. I, at least, lay out Selena’s clothes on Sunday nights which helped eliminate her “diva moments” in the morning.
I also realized that when I meal prep food for the week during my weekends, I eat better the following week. This week, I am preparing to have surgery on Wednesday. Unfortunately, this will leave me with limitations for 4 – 6 weeks: no lifting, no pushing, no pulling, and no strenuous exercise. Eek!!! So, this definitely throws a wrench in my weight loss plan.
Because I’m limited in the exercise that I can do, I’m determined to at least eat right. So, last night, I did my meal prep for the week ahead:
- Burrito bowls with brown rice (recipe below)
- Curry chicken in the crockpot
- Broccoli slaw
- Boiled eggs
I also purchased nonfat Greek yogurt, sweet potatoes that I can zap in the microwave, fresh fruit, and frozen fruit for my smoothies.
How did you meal prep for the week ahead? Feel free to share in the comments below.
