The 30 day Beach Body Challenge begins tomorrow!
Part of the Challenge includes a professional meal plan. Im not really sure how I feel about this. Really, as a diabetic I KNOW how to eat healthy and to count calories and carbs. The reality IS that I over eat. I eat fruit and vegetables every day but it is the amount of them that I need to change. Sadly, I am seeing the same thing with my 7 year old daughter. It makes me feel like a horrible mother seeing her always want more more more food. Hopefully, as she sees me changing, it will be easier to get her to change as well.
So to get organized, in terms of food, I went to the grocery store to pick a few things up. Personally I am not following the plan exactly as put out. I am a type 1 diabetic, have been since I was 6 years old. So I found that the meal plan, for my needs as a diabetic, wasn’t going to work. So I am tweaking it as I see fit.
My meal plan for this week includes:
Berries and Greek yogurt (I already eat this for breakfast pretty much every day anyways)
I cannot believe that this is actually an option as listed in the Beach Body meal plan.
Teriyaki beef fajitas with peppers, onions, and mushrooms
Veggies and hummus
This was not an option in the Beach Body meal plan but I have to watch my carb count throughout the day. For me vegetables = no carbs and I only use use about 2 tbs of hummus.
This is where it gets tricky. I eat whatever someone else (usually my mother) cooks for dinner, as I get home to late in the evening to prepare dinner for myself and my daughter.
I think as long as I watch my portion control carefully at dinner, and count my calories, I will do just fine.
The past few weeks I have perfected the art of preparing a week’s worth of lunches in one day. So after I returned home from the grocery store that is exactly what I did.
Now Im ready to take on the world!! 😀
Haha, well I guess I wouldn’t go that far, but I am prepared. I am prepared to eat healthy (and in smaller portions). I am prepared to begin this journey to a lighter, healthier me!
Do you meal prep ahead of time? Let me know, I want to hear from you 🙂
