Since Dean and I got Princeton I have been lacking when it comes to being prepared. Food prep? What’s that?! I have felt like there isn’t enough time in the day to do what I used to do. My (few) workouts haven’t been as intense, my nutrition has taken a downward spiral, and I forget to drink water. Last night when I went to bed it felt like I was spinning around in circles. Have you ever been on that tea cup ride where you just keep spinning and spinning? That’s exactly what I felt like while I was laying down.
It gave me the kick in the pants to manage my time better. Princeton sleeps a lot right now so that is when I am going to be squeezing in my workouts, making healthy meals, and just doing things for myself. Yes, he’s beautiful and I want to stare at his little cute face all day but I am not feeling my best. I am so concerned with doing what is best for him and I am forgetting about myself.
I was only able to stomach Ezekiel toast and a couple big glasses of water this morning but I’m feeling so much better already. I packed food for the day in my 6 Pack Bag just in case we end up running around. I wanted to have healthy options on me for the whole day to keep me from either (a) making unhealthy choices or (b) forgetting to eat entirely.
This should keep me until dinner and then Dean and I can whip up a big salad or something easy as our last meal.
Do you ever forget to eat?
Do you pack a cooler when you know you will be out for the day?
