That 44th Food Diary…

Week two of the fam visiting, but I tried to keep my nutrition as on-point as possible. Obviously it’s super difficult when you’re eating out more and generally just going out more, because there are more temptations in your path, but I tried to make healthy choices as much as I could. For example, where others had cookies, I had a smoothie – so in my book that’s a win!

Remember you can follow me on My Fitness Pal – I post every single day (mainly because I am too scared to lose my daily streak lol)

Another week down… and I feel that it was the last one that is going to cause me any problems! With my family now back in the UK, I have been able to prep food properly for the next week or two and I feel confident that I am going to get stuck in to a good routine with no distractions. I know that Matt wants to get back into it all as well, so that’ll help me keep on track.

Food prep isn’t easy – it took me around an hour or so to put together a food plan that fit Kayla’s nutritional guide, then I had to put together the shopping list, go shopping and then prep the food (which was over 3 hours on it’s own!!). It takes time and dedication to get this stuff right, but I love now looking in our fridge/freezer and seeing all of this perfectly portioned food ready for the next 8 or so days! Ready. To. Rock!!
