A simple 7 days weight loss plan which help you ease into habit of eating heathy. Don't worry if you can't follow the 7 days plan to the T. At least try it. Remember, every day counts, every effort counts!
This year has stirred the life everywhere. Just like you, I've been also trying to adjust with change of schedule, constant worries of health and economy. This is few of the reasons I could not share recipes with you more often. As that was not enough, I realized that my eating habits are even not the same "healthy" as it used to be. Being a stress eater, I've been snacking quite a bit. Well, "One Star" 2020!.
Recently, I came across an article which made me realize that I'm not the only one. There are many more like me who are not able to concentrate and continue healthy eating habits, planned dinner and lunches, and those perfect weeknight meals.
What do you say?
Am I right? Have you seen change in your eating habits too?
Few days ago, I rolled up my selves and said to me it's enough. I'm going to re-adjust course and fix my family's meals. No idea how long this pandemic will last.. but resilience is important.
This is a simple 7 days weight loss plan. I'm following the same to get my routine back on track. Let's try and show our strength. Let's not give up.
Remember, a better health will help get better immune system, and strength. So, take 5 deep breaths and let's get the life rolling again. Don't worry if you can't follow the 7 days plan to the T. At least try it.
I like to follow two simple things to make meal plan or any plan stick.
- Plan each day for 10 minutes - every night, before going to bed or early morning, write down on your phone or a piece of paper, what are you cooking/serving next day. Trust me, these 10 minutes will save you lots of time, money and calories in next three meals.
- Take 5 deep breaths - before cooking or stepping to complete any task. Take few minutes to take 5 deep breaths. It is good way to manage stress and concentrate on the task at hand.
I'm sure Happy-Healthy days are ahead. Stay safe and eat healthy.
