Has proven to be so important to me. I didn’t have time (find the time) to do meal prep Sunday or Monday. Monday for lunch I had a frozen meal and I was so sad because it wasn’t as tasty and satisfying as what I would make myself. Today I took fresh salad and tuna and that was delicious and so much better than the frozen meal. So, tonight we had some reprieve in our schedule and I started meal prepping right away.
I grilled chicken for all week and made quinoa too. Can I just say that I love quinoa! I was only introduced to this super food 3 years ago but really took to it. I just make it in water, but you can boil it in stock if you would like. It goes great with everything and loaded with protein.
It is a little point heavy, but so good for you. I love it in salad. I’m waiting for the chicken to cool and then I will slice it and weigh it out.
Cheers to you all and keep going!
It was one of those days, the kind that starts off on the wrong foot and despite how much you try to fight against it…it gets worse.
I consider myself a patient and positive person. It really takes a lot to shake me from that core, but every once in a while it happens. Today, was that day. I didn’t sleep well because I had a really terrible nightmare. Then, I was just slammed at work. I have this one really huge project going on. I am
a part of two really major parts of this project. It has been trying keeping both roles maintained at the level I wish for them to stay, but I have managed to do so. I credit this to the amazing team I work with. The most awesome part of my job is getting to be a part of a whole that makes a real difference. The saying, “you are only as strong as your weakest link” goes so far in our environment. Every portion of someone’s contribution is so crucial. When there are mistakes, the whole process is kinked and slowed.
I really let it get to me today. I think the reasoning is I’m not sure how to remedy it. I’m a natural problem saver, but I’m coming up empty handed.
Britt & I took a small trip to Houston (we live in Austin) a couple of weeks ago.
We call these mini adventures….
My name is Stephanie and I am 29 years old.
I have a normal 8-5, Monday - Friday job. Some days, the 8-5 gets extended if I have a large project I am working on. I am in a committed relationship. She is a teacher. We have a dog named Bruno. We are active in our community and our church. I mention all these things because it plays a large role in my weight loss journey. Britt, my partner, and I started Weight Watchers 2 weeks ago. We are off to a great start. She has lost 10lbs and I have lost 7lbs. Not every day do we feel like exercising and not every day do we do the most stellar job of picking our meals, but we are making a difference. I feel great to say that we have not exceeded our points since starting. Small victory there.
I saw someone post something about blogs that dont just have pretty pictures. I need to do more of the trials and tribulations and less of the eye candy. I have to confess that the pictures do bring me some encouragement, but….
reading your real world words,
reading your real world struggles,
reading your real world confessions….
that would encourage me even more.
I will post pictures from time to time, but I vow for it to be more of my own.
This is me.
I’m Stephanie and I am approaching 30. I no longer want an unhealthy life.
Here is my journey in seeing that through.
If this applies to you reblog and I’ll check out your blog! :)
