Meal prep and getting ready for my week isn’t that difficult for me. I’m an organized person by nature and if I don’t do some sort of prepping for the week, I feel frazzeled and rushed the whole week. But I do know not everyone finds this easy and not everyone goes as crazy as I do. One of my favorite bloggers, Gina from The Fitnessista, is definitely a huge fan of prep work and posts regular Sunday blogs reminding everyone to do so and sharing what she has done. So I thought I’d join in the fun.
Wednesday: TurboFire Tone 30
Friday: TurboFire (a cardio, I haven’t picked it yet)
Sunday: Home stretching
Does anyone else schedule this in their phone? Not only that, does anyone else use fun little icons?
Today I spent the day prepping my breakfasts, lunches, and some dinners for the week. On the menu:
Breakfast everyday: make ahead steel cut oats with brown sugar, 6 almonds, and 6 pecans. Cook steel cut oats the night before, let cool, divvy into 5 containers with sugar, almonds, and pecans, and store in the fridge. When you’re ready to eat, add a little milk of your choice and microwave for 30-60 seconds. So easy, yummy, and filling.
Lunches: prepped 5 salads with spring mix, avocado, tomatoes, egg and chicken.
Also for lunch, pita pockets with turkey, provolone, avocado, mayo, and tomatoes. I don’t make sandwiches ahead of time… don’t want a soggy pita!
Dinner: some nights I go right from work to yoga or ballet and Monday is one of those nights so I made 2 halves of a pita sandwich, one for lunch and one for dinner. And I’ll probably grab a banana from the snack counter at work. Gotta keep it light before yoga.
Everything is stored in the spare fridge in the basement and I just grab what I need the night before and bring it upstairs. Saves me so much time and worry every morning!
How do you prep for your week?
