Meal prep for 28 days... Done!

Tonight I am ending my 7th day of low-carb living. Has it been breezy? NO. But it is getting better. I've eliminated all added sugar and "bad" carbs. All this week the only carbs I eat are fruit and veggies. And this weekend I have eliminated even further. Today I haven't even had fruit. The "carb flu" is gone, but the cravings are still there sometimes. I know it will continue to get easier.

I am excited about tomorrow because I am trying something totally new. I have invested in my meal prep for the next 28 days from Personal Trainer Food. This company often has great deals on Amazon Local and Groupon. After doing my research, I was sold. The food is not processed and is based on a low-carb diet. Basically, you're eating eggs, meat, and veggies. That's it. NO CHEATING.

The point of their plan is to replace all the "wrong" foods with all the "right" foods. If you form good eating habits and make it a routine, you will successfully lose weight. 

Hey... that's what I've been trying to do, right?



So, this is going to make things a bit easier for me. The past month has been rough... work has been super stressful. Now I have physical therapy and softball most afternoons. Not to mention getting my kids all the other places they have to go. I survived last week while still eating right, but some evenings I was starving until I could get my low-carb meal in order. 

I know that's not a good way to stay on plan and consistent. So hopefully, not having to plan or buy my meals will be the key to KEEPING on track. And I don't feel bad because I'm eating a lot of processed junk.

I got my big, HUGE, box of goods yesterday.


Honestly, it was better than I expected. The veggies look fresh and REAL. The portions look substantial. And from my online research on this company and the food, everything SHOULD taste really good. 

I completed my 24-48 hour recommended fast today, and even got in a short workout. I'm ready. I've already grabbed all of my food for tomorrow from my deep freezer and have it in my kitchen freezer ready to go. It's amazingly simple. 

Just like I need it to be. Lord knows I have enough other stuff to figure out right now!

I can't wait to tell you how this goes.
