Organizing and meal prep

Tomorrow is the day I start my Advocare challenge.
I made sure when I got my box that I organized everything so that each day I wouldn't have to do much thinking and it would feel very easy and routine.

I made daily bags with all of my spark, shakes, fiber drink, and supplements. 

I labeled them and then put them in order in a basket so that each morning all I have to do is grab my bag and stick it in my purse. 

Then I made a plan for my meals and went shopping. The main goal of advocare is to eat clean, so lots of fruit and veggies and lean proteins plus minimal whole grains and no sugar or processed foods.  

Each day you eat snacks between meals so I made snack bags of nuts, fruit, natural peanut butter and celery, got some Lara bars, and boiled some eggs. 

Then I went ahead and cooked our dinners for the week and portioned them out so that all I have to do is heat up the tupperware and I am done. 

Meal 1: chicken with roasted broccoli whole wheat penne and natural organic tomato sauce. (Sunday and Wednesday) 
Meal 2: Half a roasted sweet potato, a pork chop, and brussel sprouts (Monday and Thursday)
Meal 3: Quinoa, salmon, and asparagus (Tuesday) 

I labeled every tupperware with what day it was and whose meal (chris has different portion sizes and doesn't like asparagus or sweet potato) 

The rest of the week I really don't have to think much at all because I have done all the work today. Meal prep is a life saver!

Friday morning I leave to go to Dallas and when we get back I go to Houston. I will special order things in a way that is still in line with my clean eating goal. Thankfully a lot of my meals and snacks are easy to pack and travel with. 

I've got an app on my phone that gives you your daily guide as to what to take and when, plus I have set reminders on my phone daily to eat and take my supplements. 

I've weighed, taken my measurements and pictures, so in 24 days I will share the results!!!
