Happy Friday! I hope everyone is having a great week! Mine has not been the best, but I've been trying to stick with my meal plan and focusing on getting my blue dot, my steps and my water in. Going into next week, I feel like I need to focus on my meal prepping for myself and for my family. I know it helps when I have a plan in place and I can do a few things ahead of time to make that happen. I have been inspired by some of the vloggers that I follow on YouTube to give myself a time period (i.e. 90 minutes) to see what I can get done cooking, chopping vegetables, etc. I really think this will help me. I think I often get overwhelmed with all the things that I want to do that I wind up just throwing my hands up in the air and giving up! That doesn't serve anyone's purpose and certainly doesn't put food on my table. It also can leave me scrambling for the week. This week, with a little help from my sweet husband and my oldest son, I managed to get dinners ready by trying to prepare things the day before.
Another thing that I would like to focus in the coming week is getting 30 minutes of formal exercise at least 3 days this week. I know that this is important for me and makes me feel better when I do it. It's time to bring it back now that I'm feeling better with the med change. I no longer feel like I'm walking through mud. My 5,000 step goal has been easier to hit.
So in addition to my 5,000 steps, Blue Dot days and getting my water in, I will focus on meal prepping over the weekend and getting a 30 minute formal workout in 3 days next week. Let's make it a great week!
