As I prepare for my week ahead, I have cooked up a storm with all my Eat to Grow protein in Tupperware and Quinoa pre-made so all I have to do is scoop it out with my measuring cup or a big spoon. Whether you pre-make your meals and individually put them in containers, by meal, or simply have larger containers with your pre-made food ready to be grabbed on the go, prepare yourself!
On the training front, this weekend I switched my usual Sunday "fun day and off day" and got in my training today and rest day yesterday. Often, depending on your schedule you have to adjust things. Just as you are prepared for your week, you have to be prepared to go with the flow and adjust your schedule according to how you feel and things you have going on. Yesterday was a travel day for me so what does that mean... I took the day off to travel, with all my meals prepared and with me, by the way, and then used today as my day to get in an awesome circuit workout. updates on how Jess is doing, the workout and more…

25 MINUTE CIRCUIT OF THE FOLLOWING:
1 minute abs, any which way
1 minute squats
1 minute front raises
1 minute side laterals
1 minute rows
