It is crazy how empowering a plan actually is. Tonight, I grilled some Chipotle Marinated Chicken -- this is quite possibly the BEST marinade recipe I have ever made in my entire life. I make it again and again, and I never get sick of it! I plan to pack a portion of this in my lunch each day.
I am carb cycling, so on my low carb days, I am pairing this with steamed vegetables. On the higher carb days, I will be pairing it with a small serving of brown rice and some grilled peppers and onions.
I grilled a big pile of peppers and onions ahead of time, so all I will have to do is scoop some into my bowl.
For breakfast, I bought some plain greek yogurt. I am pairing it with some thawed frozen berries with some Stevia sprinkled on top.
Snacks will consist of fresh fruit, raw almonds, and low sodium deli turkey or roast beef.
In a separate effort to get motivated for working out, I purchased some new "gym gear." I was hesitant to buy anything since having to spend a ton of money on a new furnace recently. I could not, however, pass up the huge sale at Old Navy on their active wear.
Forgive the awful mirror selfies. I am so bad at taking them -- I think mostly because I feel so strange doing it. I got 2 pair of the Old Navy compression pants, which are just awesome! I also got a pullover, which I also fell in love with. When my budget allows, I am going to have to purchase more items from their collection. They fit and feel great!
I also got a new pair of running shoes right after Christmas for a mere $22 on sale.
You can't see them, but in addition to that, I bought 2 new sports bras from Meijer. Thanks to "MPerks", I was able to get them buy one get one half off.
So, hopefully with my awesome food that is prepped and my new gym clothes, I will be well on my way to a successful week! How did you prepare yourself for this week!
