You Should Prep Yourself

While getting in our 4–7 workouts a week can sometimes be difficult, it pales in to comparison with our 21 meals plus snacks throughout the week, both in time and effort.

Nutrition is literally the key to fitness. Don’t get me wrong workouts are very important but nutrition holds the upper hand by far. So how do you stay focused on eating right and find the time to do it?

By prepping your food. If you are not prepping you are missing out and probably falling short of your nutrition goals many weeks. When it comes to food prep get on a routine. Pick a day you have off and go grocery shopping, get everything you need for the week then come home and bust out all the kitchen stuff.

Don’t put anything away in cabinets or the refrigerator. cut up your meat and put it in ziplocks for each night, cook whatever you can ahead of time like quinoa, or boil your eggs for the week, separate snacks into ziplocks or small plastic containers. Cut up your veggie and fruit.

Having everything prepped ahead of time saves you from having to think about your food every day and instead it’s just all ready to grab and go. So get going and prep!
