Prior Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance

This is a little catch phrase that my husband is fond of. I thought I would give it a go in the kitchen. I spent a good portion of the weekend and Monday preparing healthy breakfasts for the week, putting up marinated chicken frozen in individual portions, made a huge batch of soup (which came out delectable, despite my not realizing how much 2 pounds of dried black eyed peas will expand when soaked overnight) and divided it into containers in the fridge and freezer, and pre-washed and divided up all the fruit and veg so it would cut my juicing time down in the morning.

In all honesty, by Monday afternoon I was so completely wrecked that the thought of going back in the kitchen was not one I relished. But it's now Thursday and I'm so pleased about the time I've spent. I stayed away from the drive-thru at work because I've had a nice meal ready to take along. My husband and I have had our juice each morning and I've had a delicious breakfast at the ready. I'm down 4 pounds! Small changes pay off.

I don't know that I'll spend as much time in the kitchen as I did last weekend, but doing the juice-prep and having breakfasts ready will be a strategy that I'm going to keep.
