I recently shared one of my grocery lists with you:
This is just one of the steps/planning methods I am going to use while in school to stay ON TRACK!
Not everyone reading this may be in college, but everyone knows what it's like to be in a HURRY!
Sometimes, I think the biggest challenge I face is when I am not prepared, HUNGRY and have to buy somthing out of a vending machine.
While I have not done that in the past eight weeks, I have also been on Summer Vacation.
Being hungry at school or at work with no snacks or if I had no time to pack/eat lunch is the WORST!
I used to be NOTORIOUS for just saying "whatevs"
and buying poptarts for lunch from a vending machine.
Obviously if I want to continue this journey towards a HEALTHY, LONG LIFE
I can't do that anymore.
So here are some of the tips I have (for myself) and anyone else who finds them beneficial:
Buy Non-Perishable Healthy Snacks Ahead of Time...Lots of them.
Then store them!
Pre-Portion ALL your snacks Ahead of Time!
(To avoid over snacking)
My Cute Little, Tiny Paleo Pantry
In the bags I have portioned out dried apples, dark chocolate, nuts, & dried bananas that should last me a WHILE!!
I even bought those sweet potatoes that are washed & you microwave them in the plastic for SPEED
(These are also the PERFECT snacks for me to eat in class/at work)
Even the stuff in my fridge is portioned...
Yogurt, cheese sticks, carrots in baggies ect....
I am PREPARED!
Bring it ON college!
Now... when will I workout?!
Well, I deemed this my New Motto, and YES it's going up on my black-board:
We'll see how this semester goes!
