As the VP of marketing at Bodybuilding.com, Kandace Hudspeth’s day starts early and ends late. Her “days are booked solid” from five in the morning to well past 7 at night:
“100% of my energy is dedicated to the mission of changing lives with a team who is as committed to that vision as I am,” Fitmark Ambassador, Kandace Hudspeth
Despite this busy schedule, Kandace still finds time to work out:
“I am a passionate advocate of the daily commitment to health and fitness. There is no secret or magic pill, achieving your fitness goals requires good old-fashioned HARD WORK!”
So, what is the trick to finding enough time in the day to get everything you need to get done, and stay on track with your fitness and diet plan? Kandace says the only way she can stay “on track is planning ahead!” That is why she sticks to her weekly meal prep:
“I typically prep meals 2-5 for the full week on Sunday evening. I will make my first and sixth meal at home each day.”
But how do you know what to cook and how much to make?
“I adjust my macros according to my specific goals and build my meal plan around that. I am not the IIFYM type, I don’t want to be fussing with daily tracking, etc. I create a plan and do my best to stick to it. I stick to basic simple meals Monday through Friday and have more creative options on the weekends.”
Meal Prep Sunday Meal Plan
- 8-10 chicken breasts
- 8-10 lean turkey burgers or portions of lean ground turkey
- 5-6 filets of white fish
- Brown rice
- Sweet potatoes
- Rice cakes
- Baked or grilled veggies: green beans, asparagus, broccoli, etc.
This is a typical weeky menu plan for Kandace, which she says she’ll “portion into my FitMark tupperware.”
The best part of prepping meals ahead of time is that you don’t have to spend as much time during the week in the kitchen. Before long you’ll be like Kandace and have your “weekly meal prep down to under an hour,” which she says is “less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying the weekend!”
It’s all about planning ahead.
