I'm New but motivated (at least mentally)

I'm a little embarrassed but I have finally made the decision to get it together. I am not grossly unhealthy but I could be better. My goal is 30 pounds and maybe a marathon. (That's probably stretching it) Any support or new recipes are greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. I appreciate the energy. I think my greatest challenge is eating.... I wait so long to eat that when I get hungry, I'm grabbing at anything. So as you can imagine, heathy eating goes out the door. Lol.

    I am the same way! My job is pretty involved so I forget to eat and by the time I get home, either a pint of ice cream or ordering takeout seems like a completely ok choice. Have you tried meal prepping? When I'm on top of things I make batches of salad-in-a-jars and its way easier to grab one of those after work than to microwave crappy food.

    I never really tried food prepping. I'd like to try that. Sounds like it requires much discipline, and I absolutely love variety in my diet. How far out do you prepare your meals for? Couple days, a week?

    This guy is a beast at meal prepping- you don't need to buy his $6 ebook- lots of good stuff on his blog and site.
