Morning Routine: Diet/Exercise - Introduction

If you've been following this blog or know me IRL then you know that my health and fitness is always in a state of flux.  After high school (where i was a 2 sport athlete) i went to college and gained 40 pounds (where i was a 0 sport athlete).  I eventually lost all the weight, only to put it back on again.  I lose it, i put it back on.  I lose it, i put it back on.

I want to get off the roller coaster and make a healthy lifestyle an everyday, all-the-time thing.  Therefore, I'm making a part of my morning routine to ensure that being healthy is a regular part of normal day.

After waking early, drinking an organic hemp protein shake in water, and "creating," i will dedicate time to my body.  I will prep meals on Sundays and Wednesdays.  I will strength train on Mondays and Thursdays.  I will do mobility work on Tuesdays and Fridays. Cardio comes on Saturday.

The idea of cooking only twice a week is something that interests me.  I rarely want to come home after work and begin preparing a meal from scratch so this will allow me to get around that.  Large batches of crock pot meals and "freezer friendly" foods will make up the majority of my dinners and lunches.  Repurposed leftovers are integral as i don't want to simply eat the same meals over and over again. 

I currently weigh around 180.  My ultimate goal weight is between 155 - 165 pounds, unless my body fat is super low -- then the sky is the limit.  I'd walk around at 220 if i was under 12%.
