Well, Week 7 is now in the books, and I am playing catch up, but here are some of the meals that I we ate this week. Grant and I have been loving eating this way. The one hour workouts are really wearing on us mentally because it seems so long, but once the 80 days is up I plan to switch back to the 30 minute workouts. However, I think we plan to continue eating this way. We really like how much more prepared we are, and especially how much healthy food we eat. We also have almost no waste as far as food goes which is a huge change from before. We hated how much food was wasted, but just never had a good game plan on how to change that.

So here we are at Week 3. I think I am getting the hang of this meal planning thing. In general, I have very little issues with food cravings unless I skipped a meal accidentally. Then I want all of the unhealthy food, but since I have most of the food prepped and portioned, it makes it easier to make the right food choices. Will I eat this strict the rest of my life? Probably not, but I do feel like I am getting into certain habits that I really like. Below is my meal plan for the week, however, I do make changes occasionally. Everyone once in a while the meat I wrote down doesn’t sound good, so I fry up some eggs. Or the veggies isn’t the one I want, etc. I have also found that Saturday and Sunday dinners tend to be left overs. I will find I have a little of certain foods I prepped earlier in the week left over, so to not have any waste we eat left overs. If you meal prep just for yourself you shouldn’t have too much left over, but since I always need some extra for the kids, and I am never sure how much they will eat. It means we will always have some left overs. However, since starting the meal planning and prepping, the food we normally throw out is significantly less which makes me very happy.
Here is a new recipe that I came up with while doing the 80 Day Obsession Workouts and eating plan. I wanted something that was quick, easy, and full of veggies, eggs, and a few carbs.
So I have been doing Beach Body workouts that I can stream at home for about the last 5-6 months. I like being able to workout at home. Starting today, I am doing their 80 day obsession workout. The workouts are longer than the ones I was previously doing as well as timed nutrition which was a little bit intimidating to me. In a nut shell, you eat lots of smaller meals throughout the day.
