2017 GOAL: CLEAN EATING AND MEAL PREPPING
Before going to bed last night, I received a newsletter from one of the mommy fitness bloggers that I follow and I was instantly motivated to try her challenge. I typed on my Notes folder and decided to start on February 21 as we will be away this weekend and I won't be able to do my grocery shopping.
GOAL: Meal Prep
END GOALS: Save time and money, eat healthy meals, and eventually lose weight
I am not allowed to go to the gym yet because I need to recuperate from what happened to me last month first. I also need to wait for my next period before I can start doing activities with effort. For now, all I can do is to eat clean (this is a lifestyle change and not another diet) and next week my meal prep goal will start. I need to commit to this 100% so that I would be able to reach my 68-kilos weight goal before our trip to Prague.
STARTING WEIGHT: 77.5 kilos
GOAL WEIGHT: 68 kilos
CHALLENGE DURATION: February 21 to May 21 (3 months)
I've already written down my meal prep plan for the first week and I will share it with you before I start the challenge.
In order to stay on track, I am going to print these reminders from Eat Yourself Skinny and I will post this on my door fridge:
- Always stock your fridge with fresh produce
- Eliminate added sugars from your diet
- Drink lots of water!
- Don’t eat foods with ingredients you can’t pronounce
- Focus on nutrients, not just calories
- Cook your own meals and try to plan out the whole week ahead of time
- Portion control!
I'm also going to buy a pair of dumbbells so I can do some light exercises and tone my arms before my wings start to flap. LOL!
Do you have any suggestion on how I can lose 9.5 kilos in one month? Do you think my goal is S-M-A-R-T (specific, measurable, attainable/actionable, realistic, and time-bound)? Please leave a comment if you have any tips.
