Congratulations to all of you who accepted that challenge, and remember, this will continue throughout the year. I plan to only weigh in once a month, during our weekly challenge!

Now, on to my meal planning!

So, our third week challenge is to prepare and plan! I have said it numerous times, but I am going to repeat it again, when I meal plan and prepare ahead of time, I am SO MUCH more SUCCESSFUL on plan! So I know many of you struggle with meal planning. It is hard to think of all those meals and for those of us with food allergies or intolerances it can be even more of a task. However, let me encourage you, it is really worth the time and effort you spend on it. You will have smoother days and no more WHATS FOR DINNER panic! You will know in the morning whats on the menu that night! You don't have to figure out what to eat when you're starving, just look at your plan!

So I am CHALLENGING you, make a plan. It can be super formal accounting for every morsel you will eat for a week, or it can be more laid back, just plan and shop for all your dinners. Whatever works best for you, but this is a challenge I want you be mindful of as we progress through our year together.

Now, just because we are no longer on our water challenge week, that doesn't mean you can forget about drinking plenty! I am hoping that you are developing a new, good regular habit! (And me too) So keep drinking your water.

Think of our challenges like adding on layers to our routines. Gently and weekly we will grow and add on more healthful habits! By the end of the year, we will have a whole new lifestyle that is healthy and trimming. :)

On to my plan! (Oh, I am not the only blogger out there that offers meal plans, Darcies Dishes offers one as well as many others, so be sure to look around! Please link any you find in this thread as well to help others!
