Prepping for the Day

Hello everyone,

I guess it's officially Fall then!  Had to bust out the cute sweaters and coats this morning not to mention my Fall boots which I might be a little too obsessed with!!





While I was getting for work today I started thinking about a challenge many people have when it comes to trying to learn to eat healthy on a daily basis, and that's not starting each day prepared.  Meal planning has made a huge difference for me and I try to do this at the weekend so I can prep my grocery list, go shopping and then come home and cook some food for the week before the craziness of my Mon-Fri schedule kicks in.  I type up my meal plans on my computer, including the workout I'm supposed to do that day, and now I write my meals on a dry erase calendar I found at Bed Bath and Beyond that's up in my kitchen so I don't have to think about what I'm supposed to be packing for the day in the morning.




Keeps the week simple

















Hanging up in my Kitchen!                





If you don't know already, I have Shakeology every morning for my breakfast because it's quick, absolutely delicious and I can drink it in the car on my way to work.  Everything about it just works perfectly for me, and the benefits I receive from drinking something so nutritious just make me feel amazing inside.  Each day I pack my lunch and snacks for work, and recently came across this AWESOME little cooler bag at TJ Maxx, just hanging out on one of the shelves you're bombarded with as you wait in line to pay (you know the ones I'm talking about, that you inevitably end up picking something from you had no intention of buying in the first place!).  Well this worked out to be a remarkably GREAT purchase for me.


 





This cooler bag has built in ice packs into the sides but it folds up into about the size of a clutch. 














I open it up and pack my meal and snacks for the day and it helps keep everything cool and fresh while I take it to work.  This is also going to be great for road trips when I head back to PA so I can keep snacks on the road cool too!








I love this little thing.  It gives me no excuses to not have healthy meals on me throughout the day.  It's not big and bulky, it's pretty darn cute, and it does the job.  Definitely worth the investment in my eyes as I use it every day now!




Grab my shake, grab my food an I'm off.  Takes no time at all to prep for the day if I have everything ready from the weekend or night before.
