Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail!

There is one simple solution to all health and fitness goals and that is making a plan.  Having something scheduled, mapped out and a goal that is not just another wish, but a goal with a PLAN!!  

That was the missing link for me before I started this journey.  I was going to the gym, I tried wrapping myself (yup, cellophane and all), I tried the juice cleanses, I bought countless contraptions to guarantee 6 pack abs and at home workout videos.  I tried whole 30 and the atkins diet.  Although I may have had some success with some of these, I never held my results.  

The problem was that I was on my own.  I didn’t have a coach or an accountability group to help motivate me and encourage me to reach my goals.  I didn’t have a simple nutrition plan that allowed me to EAT and not eliminate the foods that I love.  I didn’t have a community of like minded who were all on a journey of their own to check in with daily.  THIS was the missing link to reaching my goals and maintain them over time.

Why am I telling you all of this?  Well, because I want to share my journey and all of it.  I did a very simple meal prep this week and I wanted to share my grocery list, recipes and my plan with you so that you too can see just how easy it is to do this.  I also want you to see that I EAT, I EAT A LOT and that my friends is not a diet, it’s a way of life!

Here is my grocery list for this week:       

Grocery List

* I purchased all of this for $87.98 and if you add in my shakes at $4 a day you are looking at $107.98 to eat 5 small meals a day for 5 full days!  That is HUGE.   

Weekly Meal Plan for 1,200-1,499 calorie range.  

Recipes: 

I love being able to share this with you and I love even more being able to do this one on one with my challengers.  My challenge groups are so much more then just workouts.  They are an education in healthy nutrition that can be sustained over time and not just a fad.  It's about making small changes to help you reach your goals instead of making HUGE changes that seam overwhelming.  It is a continuous journey not a destination.  

I would love to help you start your own journey to maintain a life worth living not live a life you have to maintain!  Join my next group.  Fill out the Join My Challenge Form at the bottom of this page :)
