Plan and Prep Wednesday!

I am leaving bright and early tomorrow morning to go to the First Monday Canton Trade Days with my Mama and sister. I realized this afternoon that I needed to PLAN and PREPARE some of my food before I leave so I don’t fall off the wagon,  or become miserable because I am not eating my normal foods, or even having to spend too much money on food {instead of cool stuff! ;)} because I don’t have anything.

I measured out and marked all my snacks and treats that I am taking with me. (I’ve decided I’m not taking the chocolate candy you see here- I have made myself sick on candy these past several days and don’t want to have it handy anymore- blech!)  I won’t have to worry about snacks both days and breakfast for Friday morning. I just have to worry about drinking enough water, choosing lunches and dinners, getting my veggies in, and making decent choices on whatever else I decide to have. It makes me feel so much better and more confident that I can stay on plan now that I thought it out and will have majority of my ‘familiar’ foods on hand.  I even googled Food in Canton and it looks like a lot of my choices are gonna be harder than usual. There are lots of vendor/carnival foods. I will just have to do the best I can and have a good time!  😉

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
