Getting My Groove Back

I have had an awful time of it lately.  I can’t seem to get motivated, and I’m not really sure why.  I think part of it is time.  I am so tired when I get home that I don’t feel like working out, stay up later than I should, and don’t want to get up in time to work out in the morning.  Something needs to change.  I really need to do something.  I hate looking at my body.  I really want to be in the pants I used to wear instead of back in my “fat pants”.

My first piece of motivation came this weekend when I received my Skinnytaste cookbook.  I have followed her blog for a long time, and I have never had a bad meal!  I was really excited for her cookbook, and this one did not disappoint.  I have made three weeks worth of meal plans with recipes with the cookbook, and I can make many more.  All of the recipes sound amazing!!  Also, I have already prepped the meals for the week.  (YAY ME!!).

In an effort to get my life back on track, here’s what I am going to do.

  1. Get my ass out of bed every morning to work out.
  2. Stick to my meal plan
  3. Track all of my food in Myfitnesspal
  4. Blog about it

I already created a menu for the week!!  I’ve also prepped everything to be sure to stay on track.  I usually either don’t plan anything or don’t prep ahead of time and am too tired to cook from beginning to end when I get home from work.

  • Sunday: Oven Roasted Fried Chicken with Sweet Potato Fries
  • Monday: Black Bean Burgers with (leftover) sweet potato fries
  • Tuesday: Out (OMG, we are so busy this day, there’s no time)
  • Wednesday: Chicken Pot Pie Soup
  • Thursday: Leftovers
  • Friday: Turkey Panini with Avocado, Roasted Red Peppers, and Spinach
  • Saturday: Out with Mom

Since I have so many amazing recipes, I am going to continue with my “Foodie Friday” and put all of my food on that post.  However, that’s the only thing I am going to have “set,” because I think just blogging every day/night about whatever I want will be more productive.  There are product reviews, fitness things, and random thoughts to post.  I’ll also post the random recipe (like smoothies and stuff), but I just want to be free without it seeming like a chore.  But, I think I just need to get into a routine. I also (eventually) want to start reading again. It’s really about a routine as I don’t do well when I am “on my own.”. I think I’m off to a good start, now I just need to stay on my track and not derail.

Here’s the a new start!
