I’ve blogged a lot about how much I love working out. Sweaty, intense, long sessions of weights and cardio. And I bet you’re thinking, “She has to be cutting corners somewhere. There just aren’t enough hours in the day!” Well, let me tell you the #1 place that I’m not cutting corners: What we eat. Yes, it’s tough finding time to put a healthy meal on the table and manage this. The solution: Planning. You have to plan. If you don’t have a meal plan you’ll slip. We don’t work out on Sundays so that’s the day that we will cook a lot in preparation for the coming week. We eat a lot of fresh fruit, eggs, chicken, salad, and turkey. We also love quinoa, which is a great meat substitute. We eat a lot of quinoa tacos. We always have chicken cooked up so we can put it in salads or make fajitas.
So what does slip? Housework. Our house is not as organized and clean as I’d like it. But I’ve gotten over it quickly and realize that it’s never going to go away. It will always be there waiting for us. The kids, our health, our lives, etc, could be gone in a moment. So we prioritize what is most important and the rest falls into place. Really we lead a great and busy life and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I hope I’ve given you some tips on how you too can have it all. It might take time but stay persistent and it will fall into place.
