Starting Off on the Right Foot

Alright folks, here we go.  The spring fuel challenge kicks off on Wednesday.  We hope that you’ve put some thought into how to best start this challenge.

Here’s a how to guide on the shopping trip (which you should all be doing today or tomorrow):

1. Look over the week’s food plan and decide which meals you will make.
Breakfast and lunch are pretty straight forward but look at the dinner options and pick three or all four to start with.
2. Write out your food menu for the week.
That’s right, breakfast and lunch might just be reminders, but list the dinner item you plan to make each night on a calendar or piece of paper on your counter.  For example, Wednesday – steak/brocoli, Thursday – chili, Friday – leftovers, Saturday – squash soup…etc.  That way there’s no lost time thinking about what to make or remembering to prep the right foods.
3. Write out a list that pulls all of the ingredients into the number of servings you will need for your household.
For example, if three people in your house will eat three eggs for breakfast each day for five days, then you need to buy 4 dozen eggs.  I know, some of you are thinking, what!?, 4 dozen eggs?  Remember, you can swap in any other meat for breakfast that you’d like, as long as it meets the requirements.  Eggs just make for an EASY grab and go, especially when hardboiled.

ALSO, do you need or want a Spring Fuel Challenge Sponsor?  Or, are you somewhat of an expert and willing to help a newbie?  Post to comments if you’re interested in a challenge buddy and we’ll hook you up.

Making a grocery list is easy, especially when you have meal options right infront of you! Refer to your packet, make a list, and go shopping.

  1. Roots Day / 11.3 was awesome! Cool people, good food and great performances.

    I’ll gladly help anyone in anyway possible with the Fuel Challenge. I keep a nutrition blog as well at Keep in mind that not all my recipes are 100% Paleo so if you’re not sure about something just ask.

    I’m super excited for the Open 11.6 workout Nicole. The energy was unreal on Saturday! Scott was right…the community makes a HUGE difference. Thanks everyone for the encouragement, and especially a big thanks to Tracy E for helping me make the workout happen!

    Thanks Dave, the link should work now. You can also find it under the Foundations tab in MBO in your account.

    1. Yeah, I tried that before I posted. For some reason I am still just seeing the Foundations course. And the link resolves to the same screen for me. Anybody else?

    Couldn’t make the meeting yesterday afternoon – the golf course was calling me!!
