  3. I prepare for the week by prepping my food in advance, drinking plenty of water and preparing myself mentally to resist the sugar and bad stuff.

  5. I've never been good at prepping for the week. I also don't like the shock of a big grocery bill. Sure, it comes out to the same amount, but it's psychological I guess. I like to buy for the next day and cook the night before. I usually make breakfast in the morning and eat when I get to school. So, I would say prep is kind of a weakness of mine.

  6. I do a partial prep, I pre-portion my meats and thaw them the night before. frozen veggies in the nuker...keeping it simple.
    yesterdays:
    b: 2 eggs, 2 bacon
    l: leftover paleo "fried" chicken and sweet potato
    d: Leftover paleo meatballs and broccoli
    this cleans out my leftovers completely.
    Team Strong!

  7. I prepare my meals on my days off! Time consuming but worth it. I am going to try to do block meals starting week 3. Great WOD this morning! #teamDEDICATION

  8. I prepare for the week by lighting a Mexican candle and praying on my knees to the Lord Almighty that the sick and twisted souls of this earth do not put DUs as the third movement of an AMRAP wod.....and if such an evil act occurs, that God's healing hand repairs my swollen knuckles and bruised legs. GO TEAM STRONG!

  9. I prep for 3 days and repeat all over again. I like my food pretty fresh so I don't like to prep for more than 3 days (I know i'm weird) for my morning breakfast I usually get the same day just get up earlier than usual on work days.

    My breakfast today-2 eggs, 2 bacon and broccoli ;)

    Today's WOD looks fun; I might get sick at work so I can make it into the box. :-)
    Chef (wife) does the cooking part for me I just get to eat it. I know lucky me.

  11. I prep by making sides for two days and do it again once those are gone i cook my protein daily andi can't eat stuff that has been in the refrigerator for a while I like to enjoy my food when I eat. I always make sure that I have water in my purse and gym bag at all times I'm not big on snacks so I hardly ever have any but I try to have an orange or an apple in my gym bag just in case a sweet tooth hits while I'm out. Looking forward to today's tabata, ouch wall balls!! Team dedication

  12. I cook the protein ahead of time, then just change the vegetables throughout the week!!

  13. I usually prep on Sundays and Wednsdays, but I will always cook my meats on Sundays. Weekends I play by ear but I always have a fall back plan.

    1. Today I did not make it to the gym. :-(
      Down several pounds the first few weeks back on Paleo though. That's a positive.

  16. I like to prep by baking about 10 sweet potatoes for the week. I also like having enough protein cooked for the week. That's good enough to keep me going. I'll just cook the other foods I need right before I eat them.

  17. I prep by making sure I'm the first one in line at jack in the box to order large Jumbo jack with extra cheese for my protein, Large salty Curly fries for my strength, and a large diet coke for my guilt

  18. I wasn't really into meal prepping until I started the challenge. What I have been doing is meal prepping on Sunday's for about 3 days. Then around Wednesday I meal prep for the rest of the days. I have also been using my crockpot a lot this week which saves me so much time.

  19. I prep for the week by making a meal plan and shopping specifically for that menu. I don't have time to do a ton of cooking/chopping in one sitting, so that is one area in which I'm weak. Lee, as crazy as this sounds, our food bill went down pretty drastically just by planning a menu for the week. We can look at what proteins are on sale and use those throughout the week instead of just buying what we're in the mood for.

  20. Breakfast is the only meal I prep for. I make lots of eggs and bacon to get me through 3-4 days. That's all I have for today. Go Team Strong!

  21. We're not the best at prepping. We usually cook a lot for dinner and use those leftovers for lunch for a few days, and we usually have plenty of time to make an awesome breakfast every morning. If we don't, we make a quick scrambling of eggs with some avocado and fresh fruit.
    On another note, today I felt extremely sluggish! I have great days, good days, and awful days. Is that normal? I'm so ready for this to pass! #TeamStrong

  22. Man, I wish I prepared my food for the week like it looks like in the picture! I bake and grill almost everything and put the rest in big containers. I scoop out my meals each day to save space in the fridge. If I was living by myself that would be another story :) food containers for DAYS!!

    For lunch: Sweet Potato topped with 4oz of ground turkey, squash, carrots, and broccoli. All sauteed in honeybutter with a side of mixed fruit

    DETERMINED to keep this up. #TeamDetermined

  23. Good WOD today! Sorry about yesterday Charmaine. I need to hit publish twice and I guess I didn't.

  24. I would say I'm not the best at prepping. Something I'm working on. I do try to have foods on hand that are easy to grab and go, like boiled eggs, paleo bars, fresh fruit and veggies. #teamdedication

  25. I did a great job prepping this week, and it looked just like the picture. However, I have not eaten much of the lunches because I'm driving this week for my job. So I've been eating "out" but still paleo items! Next week I won't waste so much food.

  26. I usually do my shopping on Sunday's and then make a menu for the week and cook the proteins the night I eat them. Good WOD today, making good progress on my goals and keep looking forward to each day.

  27. I prepare by going to the grocery on a set date and getting my meats, vegetables, and fruits. That way I don't run out of food and give into temptation. I like my good freshly cook so I just mentally prepare my breakfast lunch, and dinner. That way I not going trough the fridge wondering what to make.

  29. My prep is usually done on Sunday's. Starts with trip to grocery store and shop the perimeter of the store. Haven't been messing with the aisles much anymore. I use my crockpot a ton so my prep mostly involves washing and packaging fruits and veggies for each day. I can just grab and go! Team Dedication!

  33. Well this week has been super tough. I usually prepare by writing out my meals and then cooking th two to three and then usually my lunch is left overs from dinner. But the kids have been sick, now I'm sick and I find myself making comfort foods like chicken tortilla, Mac and cheese..still with a while lot of veggies because I don't want them to go bad, but not Paleo which I'm sad about. My goal was to go to the gym everyday with a rest day but I can't help feeling sick and with the body aches, well I don't think it's a good idea. Hopefully I can get back in soon..and eat strict, I feel like I'm starting over again.

    1. Rest, drink lots of water then come back when you feel better. Don't beat yourself up just start again - make your next meal Paleo - get rid of the bad stuff. If it's not in the house then you won't have temptation to eat it. You can do this Jes!
