Getting it Done…

A strategy goes a long way for staying on plan. Dinner is by far the most difficult meal for me to manage. Planning what to eat, when to start cooking, while thinking about what everyone will or will not eat. It is pretty exhausting. I needed a simple strategy to help me get it done. Here is my three-step mantra:

  1. Prep food for dinner ahead of time.
  2. Start cooking / prep work at a consistent time.
  3. Stick to my plan, if family members don’t want it, they’re on their own.

I am baking potatoes and plan to top them with chili that I cooked yesterday (made with 98% lean ground chicken). I am going to cook dinner at 5:30 pm. If my kids (my husband is easy and likes everything I make) don’t want it they are adults they can make something else. Just knowing this makes me feel like “I got this.”

Hope this helps you, and that you are having a great day on plan.

We all go through different seasons in our lives and losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is just that… a life long struggle journey. But so worth it. Please try to remember… This too shall pass. Your column inspires me and gives me great joy to hear about your journey.
