Monday Prep and Plan for Healthy Living
I believe prepping and planning for healthy living is a huge component in making it part of your daily life. Taking a day each week to food prep will save time and money, and having a plan for healthy living will help make your goals attainable. Every Monday I will feature how I food prep each weekend before the work week, as well as my plan for healthy living for the week. Minor food prep done this weekend. I was in Sea Island, GA for a bachelorette party for one of my best friends. We had SO much fun! I got back late Sunday afternoon, so when I was cooking dinner I did a few things for the week. I made hardboiled eggs, oatmeal and roasted sweet potatoes.
Meal Plan for the week*:
*I find I usually stick to the plan probably 80% of the time, if I don't make exactly what I plan I try to at least use the ingredients.
Exercise plan for the week:
Monday- Gym before work (deadlifts/back/biceps) and hot cardio flow yoga
Wednesday- Gym before work (leg day)
Thursday- Hot barre
Friday- Gym before work (shoulder/chest/triceps)
Saturday- BUTI yoga + sprints
Sleep and mental health plan for the week:
I did not do any meditation this past week! And my mind felt SO chaotic as a result. I want to continue the meditation at night, but I am going to wake up 5-10 minutes earlier to make time to start my day with a clear mind. It is hard to think of waking up earlier than 4:45-5am, but I know it will help my mind stay focused and centered throughout the day. I want to continue to turn off electronics by 8:30pm and start nighttime meditation by 9pm. I follow my sister's guided meditations, you can find more about that on her guest post or at her website. You'll be hearing more from her later this week!
