I returned to work 2 weeks ago. My life has been INSANE. I don't remember it being this busy when I worked out of the home from 2009-2012.
Perhaps it's that I'm getting up at 4:30am so that I can get to CrossFit En Fuego. If I don't workout at that time, it's not going to happen in my busy day since I get off of work at 5:30pm and have an hour commute home and the latest my box is open is 6pm. So it's either first thing in the morning or not at all. And not at all is not an option.
By the time I get home from the box, get the kids up, get their breakfast made, lunches packed, showered, dressed and ready to head out the door, that's generally when I say "oh no! I forgot to make my own lunch!"
When this happens (which is more often than I'd like) I'm so thankful that I can just reach in and grab a frozen Atkins meal.
There are so many to choose from!
From the Sesame Chicken
To the Pasta Bake
It makes it super easy for me to just grab and go, and with the net carbs listed right on the front of the box, I can easily know exactly how many carbs are in my meal. And with following the Atkins40 plan, I just simply deduct that total from my 40 daily, and I'm on my happy way!
I haven't been on the scale because I'm really trying hard to not focus on that number. Instead I'm gauging it based on how much energy I have, and how my clothing feels. And both of those measurements are a-okay. So I'm happy.
You can follow Atkins on Twitter, Facebook, and check out their website, too.
If you're a working parent, how do you try to fit in making a healthy lunch for work??
