It is Monday morning. It's is a great day to get out to the grocery, pick up some foods and prepare some meals for this week. If you think this will help you get on track, I recommend doing this today or maybe on sunday if you are pretty busy during week days. I prefer to cook extra food at lunch time and then take the left overs for dinners. Whatever works better for you.
Here is a weight loss secret you should never forget .... "there are no magic secrets. Stop eating garbage and get off your ass"

If you eat more calories than you use, you gain weight. If you burn up more calories than you eat, you lose weight.

Not to mention an adequate rest/sleep ratio is also essential. Any workout program is not complete if you do not incorporate a structured nutritional program into it. If you want to maximize the results of your workout program then you must have a proper nutritional balance that goes along with it. Regardless of your reasons for training, you will not reap the full rewards from your workouts if you are not eating well because .....
