Never have we experienced times such as these. The whole world has been cattyampus since March.
As we gradually take baby steps toward a new normal, never has there been a better time to start a routine.
“Anything is a hassle before it becomes a habit” ~ Angi Abercrombie
Girl it’s time to climb! Climb out of the rut and into a routine. We could all use a little more schedule/ conformity.
First thing is first…
Gut the pantry! Trash all of the comfort junk food that has accumulated and continues to breed temptation.
While you are at it…the fridge could use some cleaning up too. If you know the cookie dough is a problem…make it disappear into the garbage! Excommunicate the cheesy Doritos and Oreos from the vicinity.
Next make a mindful list of healthy (not health foods) but nutritious meals and snacks that you actually like to eat. Perhaps, eggs come to mind. Purchase more that usual so you can boil some and keep it handy for snacking or cut up into a salad.
SAMPLE GROCERY LIST
quest protein bars
Premier protein shake
milk (skim milk)
gluten free bread
deli turkey (double your order)
gluten free chia crackers (nut thins)
halo top ice cream (one pint only)
gluten free pretzels
NOW listen up…if you don’t like cauliflower or broccoli or carrots, celery or onions don’t eat them or waste your money on it. Buy healthy foods you know you will eat!
Routine is routine. It’s routine eating, it’s routine exercise, it’s routine cardio and routine over all clean living. It’s not exciting or sexy but it works!
I basically eat the same things over and over again without much variety. My go to lunch meals are a constant rotation between canned tuna with corn, tomatoes and jalapeño. Ground turkey lettuce wraps with salsa or rotisserie chicken, cucumbers, soy sauce and peppers. I often add some veggie chips or chia crackers for a lite carb and crunch.
My evening meals are typically, grilled chicken, sushi, grilled fish, rice, and some sort of steamed vegetable.
Exercise has to to be incorporated.
Pencil in, schedule your workout time. Treat it like your hair appointment. Don’t skip unless it’s a major issue. Twice to three times a week weight training sessions are the fastest way to lose inches and burn fat. It’s just the truth.
To keep a lean shape and tight toned muscles you must eat clean and routinely exercise. Routine breeds results.
