I definitely had a weekend of delicious food and a little more laziness than anticipated, but I feel that when you lead an active and busy life, these days are extremely necessary in order to refocus and reenergize.
I reeeeally wanted something "snacky/crunchy/treat-worthy" this afternoon. When you feel like this, it's preferable to go for something that you can quickly grab...
While many "bad-for-me" options came to mind, I opted for a happy medium: 1 1/2 cups Nature's Path Organic Peanut Butter Granola (with 7g of protein), banana cut up on top, almond milk, and sprinkled with cinnamon! It totally satisfied my treat craving, and was a better for me than pretzels or tortilla chips.

It's Sunday night, and I am feeling much better after taking some time to relax. Every Sunday, it's important for me to sit down, pull out my agenda/day planner, and schedule out the following things:
1) My teaching plans for the week.
2) My workouts for the week.
3) My dinner ideas for the week.
I find that by organizing these three elements, I am accountable and more likely to follow through, as opposed to merely planning them in my head- and knowing me, forgetting such plans within 24 hours. I have an extremely busy 2 months+ ahead of me, so having this structure put in place each week is very important in order for me to execute!
If you are a Pinterest user, you may have seen this little number floating around lately:
This definitely puts things into perspective! Schedule it in, and make it happen :)
