Do you struggle keeping to your fitness goals? Is it difficult to stay on track? You do awesome and kick ass for a week or two but then fall off the band wagon? If so this one thing can help you stay on track. Now I’m a firm believe that there are no quick fixes and it takes time to build muscle and get in shape. But this one thing is the closest thing to a hack.
So what is it? Meal prep!
Meal prep is hands down one of the most important things to keep you on track? Why? Because if your food intake start to go downhill, chances are your gym workouts will follow suit. You’ve got to be taking care of what you put in your body.
But that’s hard! I mean just meals alone we’ve got 21 a week, plus our snacks! And time is crunched. All the more reason to prep! You have to go grocery shopping anyway so I’m not even going to factor that into your time.
So when you are ready to meal prep, lay everything out so you know what you have. Cook all your meats, cook your veggies, and cook your carbs. Add them together and put them in those throw away tins that you can throw in the oven. Add sauces and seasonings to each and you are done! Throw them in the freezer and don’t worry about your meals for the week. The same can be done with your lunches.
If you think this takes too much time, it actually saves time by cooking it all at once, and what’s more when your food is on track and you don’t have to think about it, you tend to stay more focused on your other fitness goals as well.
So take a half this weekend or whatever day you have off and get your prepping done.
