Fail to plan; plan to fail

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to write and encourage each of you to give 5-10 minutes today thinking about what your week needs to look like in order to move forward towards your health and fitness goals. Do you need to schedule some early morning workouts or cardio sessions? If you have opportunity, can you carve out some time during your workday for a quick walk outside? Maybe the weekends are where you need to dedicate some time to exercise…the point is to give it thought and schedule it out. We are more likely to stay committed to the plan we have in place for our success if we can envision what it takes to get there each week!

The same principle can be applied to meal preparation and planning. Nate and I figure out on sundays what our lunches and dinners will look like for the week and then do one big shopping trip for as many of the groceries as we are able to purchase in advance. This cuts down on last minute dinner planning that could lead to take out or other less-than-ideal choices and allows us to plan for meals that are wholesome and healthy. Sunday just happens to be the day that works best for our family. Take some time today to consider how a little food preparation and planning could help you take healthier steps when it comes to your nutrition. Small steps taken now will pay BIG dividends later!

Let’s start this week with positive momentum in the right direction! You CAN do this! Not sure how to implement a plan that works for you? Ask me how today!

Have a GREAT week!

Apple Chips!

#TastyTuesday So last month we featured some TASTY Autumn-ish salads - this month we’re continuing with the Fall theme and running wild with APPLES which are just starting to come into season. It is always a good idea to try and take in the produce that is in season and if possible, by supporting local growers - chances are there are less chemicals involved in the growing process and the food is fresher because it has less distance to travel to get to you.

First Up - APPLE CHIPS…I mean, whoa. I’ve made these myself and let me tell you it quickly becomes a “I can’t have just one…” scenario. The recipe I’ve included does use sugar, but honestly, I didn’t use it before, the sweetness of the ripe apples is perfect. Sometimes it is better to let your food speak for itself! While these do take some time, it is super simple and a perfect option for those yard clean up days or Sunday afternoons on the couch watching football we have coming up.

We’d love to know what you think of these!!
