Last month, I shared with you that I would be participating in Laura’s 21 day reset. I talked about how it was perfect timeing due to the start of January being a continuation of the holiday indulgence with my birthday and traveling for a football tournament where my eating will be a bit crazy!
The initial plan was to start this week ( the week of Jan 18th), we’ll that didn’t quite happen as I got back into town Monday and have not been able to get to the super market to buy and plan accordingly. On top of that we have a blizzard coming this weekend and so the grocery stores are a freaking MAD house!!! Anywhoo-so instead of half assing on the 21 day Reset, I have decided that I will start next week.
This will give me the opportunity to be better planned and more successful.
Week 1 meal prep will include some recipes from the Racing Weight Cookbook that I got for Christmas. I am not usually a recipe kind of girl but I want to be more creative with my food to break out of the extreme boredom that I am experiencing right now with my food.
A few meal ideas from the book:
-nut butter and banana toast;
-5 minute burrito;
-Bean, corn, cheese quesadilla;
-tomato, beef, florentine soup;
-chipotle chicken avacado wrap;
-rosemary garlic chicken;
-beef/turkey &pepper cause over rotini;
-spinach Sala with red quinoa;
-one-pot quinoa chicken &veggies;
-beef & butternut squash hash;
-lean turkey burgers;
-steak with charred corn salsa
Just typing that out and my mouth is watering. Hopefully I can get what I need at the grocery store despite all the hoarders as we prepare for the blizzard of 2016 here in the DC area. I will adjust the meal prep based on the availability of items.
I have enjoyed the informative and suggestive emails I have been getting from Laura that shares her thoughts on things like good/bad carbs, added sugars, how much protein do you need, etc. The emails are helping me to more mindful of my food choices and plans for food prep.
I continue to be excited about the 21 day Reset and continue to feel optimistic of the reset helping me to set a good foundation for eating in 2016.
How has your eating been this year so far? Are you doing the 21 Day Reset?
Have a Fit-Tastic Day!!
