I started my meal planning last week and looking back, I realize that having a plan helped immensely. It was the first time I did it so I didn’t expect that I would get everything right the first time. And I didn’t.
But the comfort that comes from knowing there’s food in the fridge, that was already prepared or semi-prepared, helped me to not buy fast food or junk.
I didn’t follow the plan to a T but I made healthier choices than I probably would have made if I was just eating whatever I could find.
I shared some of my meal highlights in Wednesdays post and I’ll share more pics for my next WIAW post. Please come back and check me out on Wednesdays where I’ll do that.

The changes that I’m incorporating this week are:
1. Eat more protein rich meals on the days when I workout. Since my new schedule is to go to the gym at least 4 days a week, I’m planning a 5 day routine and planning for protein additions that I can include on those days.
2. Using up food that I already have in a different way.
