Meal Plan Monday #6

Hello beautiful people! Happy Meal Plan Monday 🙂 I know many of you probably celebrated the Super Bowl yesterday, which is one of those holidays that is surrounded by food. This may not apply to everyone, but there’s a possibility that some of you ate more than you anticipated and richer food than you usually allow yourself. I am here to remind you that that is okay. And normal. You are entitled to treat yourself and snack more than you usually do. And I completely understand the mental cycles of going over what you ate in your head, regretting it, and beating yourself up over it. Just a reminder: thinking about it won’t change it; it just adds much more unnecessary stress to your life. Try to focus on the people you were with and the positive time you had with family and friends. Onward!
