Meal Plan #3!

It’s time for some food.

Howdy, y’all. I hope you are doing great over there in email land. I had a fun race over the weekend and did better than I expected! My wife and I had a lot of plans and we kind of fell off the wagon of our meal plan. BUT that’s just fine! we brushed it off, made good choices when we could, made the indulgent meals count, and we’re back on the horse this week.

A word about “cheat”/indulgent meals:
Without an indulgent meal here and there, we might just go crazy. Also, it’s good to throw our bodies a curve ball once in a while.

HOWEVER, one of the problems people have is that they fall off the healthy thorough-bred racing race of their meal plan and instead of brushing themselves off and getting back on, they decide to finish the race by riding the non-nutritional unhealthy processed mule! This is like getting a small crack in your phone and throwing your hands up in the air and taking a hammer to it. It doesn’t make sense!

So you had a moment of weakness and had a donut from box someone brought into the office because of someone else’s birthday. Just because you made a small slip-up that doesn’t mean you should throw the rest of your health to the wayside! Just ask yourself if it was worth it, take note of how you feel, and move on.

Make it count!
Lastly, in keeping with the previous thoughts, make you decisions count. Don’t settle for cheap store-bought junk if you “must” have an indulgence. Make it count! I’m not saying totally pig out when you have an indulgence meal, I am saying make it worth it. When I have a cookie, it’s not from a box from a convenient store, it’s homemade and delicious. When I have take out Chinese food, it’s not from a nasty chain, it’s from a great local authentic restaurant.

Anyway, thanks for reading! Happy cooking!
