My personal trainer has a new blog – follow it! I’ve been training with Brandi at Peak Physiques for a little over a year now, and she has truly been a lifesaver. She completely kicked my booty and changed so many of my bad habits last year when I was prepping for my wedding, and while I haven’t been quite as strict lately, she is still keeping me motivated and in check.

In her first post, Brandi shared simple steps to getting started with your meal prep and being successful at it. Give her some love and follow her blog so you don’t miss her future health and fitness posts. And be sure to tell her I sent you!

Write it all down.
Step 3 – Shop.
Shop. Get it done, head back home… but stop! Don’t put anything…
