HYDRATION MUST HAPPEN. After a week that literally kicked my ass which was fueled by coffee and absolutely NO water the need to regroup and refocus is essential. This is happening all day for the next two days! It’s prep time! Need to set my body up for success on Sunday.
SUPER EASY AND QUICK..Post run meal. Has all the essential macronutrients, protein(eggs), fat(avocado) and carbs (Vans Ancient Grains waffle) for after a workout. And it literally took me 4 minutes to make. I timed it 🙂 I am not an extravagant cook, nor do my food pictures look pretty and perfect but the food itself gets the job done regardless. When you don’t have a lot of time and are juggling a million things there is still a way to healthy meals.
My fantasy food prep vs my reality food prep. Mornings can be wild in my house and so my food prep is sometimes being done in between getting kids dressed, teeth brushed and back packs ready. Yes I should probably do this all at night but sometimes you’re just too tired. It may not look picture perfect but it doesn’t always need to be to still prep healthy foods for the day.
And sometimes it’s not that neat and pretty. My breakfast, a banana, water and a waffle with almond butter. The waffle with almond butter is not pictured because I shoveled it in while simultaneously getting out of the house with two kids and 7 bags. And a mid morning snack of Siggis @siggisdairy plain yogurt, blueberries, granola and cinnamon eaten standing up because I was in between work, laundry and dishes etc. Life can get hectic sometimes but there’s still a way to manage eating well (even if it’s not neat and pretty) while juggling all the other demands you have. And while best practices would be slow down, eat without distractions so you can be mindful that isn’t always realistic.
My motivation. The reason for my drive, dedication and discipline (and occasionally my need to take moments of deep breathing). These two little men are my WHY. I always ask my clients what their WHY is. Knowing that, understanding that and connecting to that is what makes the difference between taking action towards your goals and just simple stating them. We all want to achieve certain things but what gives you the motivation and discipline to make it happen. I remind my clients that their WHY needs to resonate with them on a daily basis to keep them focused on what they are trying to achieve.
