Why the Diet Never Starts Monday

This week I shot TWO Facebook Lives discussing food prep.

The first video is short (13 min.) and it's all about “The Diet Starts Monday Mentality.”

I shot it standing in front of my car, early Sunday morning, and getting my day all set to kick off a great week.

The second video is longer (61 min.) and it details my food prep.

This week I wanted to do a bigger food prep because I've been traveling so much the last few months. I've ate salads because they are easy but wanted to do a little something new.

Saturday night I sat in my bed and asked myself a question: What would you enjoy eating this week?

Food prep is a lot easier when you look forward to it! And eating what you make is a WHOLE lot easier when the food is what you like.

My menu…

Upon Waking: My coffee

Breakfast (10 or 11am): Mexican Egg Bowl

Lunch (2 or 3pm): Steak Salad

Dinner (6 or 7pm): Chicken fajitas on Baked Potato

Chicken Fajitas: Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes or until done. I also put some EVOO on there and it's sooooo good.

You can watch both videos here.

    So, do you have the same breakfast, lunch and dinner every day that week?

      I do but just to keep it simple. I pick things I love so I don’t get tired.


Hi, I'm Corinne

I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
