Recently, I got tired of the weekly grind of meal planning. Trying to plan, shop and prep gets tiring after a while. It happens to the best of us, right?!
Then, I had the opportunity to take a few “days off” from it because our schedule was jam-packed with events – and I went for it.
I went for the lazy way out…meaning back-to-back unbalanced meals, take-out, even DONUTS!!!
After a few days, I felt lethargic, bloated, all the things…BUT gained so much clarity on my goals!!!
I realized that there’s this ONE thing that made such a big difference for me when it comes to feeling amazing, energetic and healthy.
I was subconsciously doing it, while consciously choosing NOT to do it. In a low moment at a recent event, it suddenly dawned on me how without this ONE thing, everything just falls apart…
Yes, it is to meal plan using the portion-control system that I learned in the online course! The one I preach about all the time!
Going through this online course was life-changing! It taught me how to put together healthy balanced meals that are the correct portions for my body. Eating according to this plan completely satisfies hunger, makes you feel your best at all times with no snack attacks!
The downfall is that old evil habits sneak back into our lives real quick. I recognized this in myself and stopped those old habits dead in their tracks!
UPDATE: Today is exactly one week after this epiphany. I’m feeling much better, definitely less bloated and more energetic. Also, I am down 2.5 lbs.!
