Plan And Prepare


We (Grandpa and I) are planning a late August-late September month long National Parks tour out west.  We took a 30' motor home and the three kids down Rt. 66 in 2005, but we didn't get to see any other National Parks except the Grand Canyon. 

We are in the beginning stages of planning this once-in-a-lifetime trip. We're researching train routes, Airbnb's, boon docking, and yes ... maybe even RV'ing again. We're loading up our road trip playlists and kindles. We're scouring you tube for hints, ideas, recipes, and scenic drives. It takes time to plan and prepare a trip such as this. But the work must be done ahead of time to make for a successful vacation.

Same goes for getting healthy. (Everyday AND on vacation)

You may not have a gourmet bone in your body. Or you may be a foodie. You might lean towards international meals. You might like food prep days or once-a-month cooking. Maybe you're a meat and potatoes kinda gal/guy. It takes all kinds and this is where we all must agree ~ If you're trying to lose weight and get healthy you need to plan and prepare. 

This is my daily food schedule and remember I'm into simple, whole, convenient and cleanse days.

Nutritious protein shake with some kale or spinach thrown in for breakfast. 8am

Snack - Apple with peanut butter, OR hard boiled egg, OR raisin cake  about 10am

Nutritious protein shake with 1/2 banana or peanut butter thrown in for lunch. Noon.

Snack - Grapes & cheese OR celery & almond butter OR almonds & applesauce OR veggies & dip

I make 3 Blue Apron meals a week OR I fix a dinner according to the photo below (out to eat, too)

I do have a small glass of wine about every other evening and 3-4 cups of popcorn once a week.
Once every other week I do a 24-36 hr cleanse/fast day.

Think about these three little words,  ... Plan And Prepare!

Barring any unforseen mac trucks, I'm on a mission. A mission to see the USA with Grandpa, keep up with those grandkids, help as many people as I can (including me) get healthy and stay healthy.
