Hello everyone. My name is Alex Torres. Some of you know me as @Mealprepmondays on Instagram. Full time blogger and dad to these four kiddos you see here. Aliana my oldest in the blue, Sophia in her beautiful pink dress , Mateo being held by mommy, Lucas and his amazing hat and of course we also have my wife of over 15 years Diana (pronounced Deanna) who just so happens to blog as well. We live in Orlando, FL and have now for over 10 years. Previous to this we lived in Williamsburg, VA for a couple years (very beautiful), and most of my life in NY (Long Island).
Meal Prep Mondays was an idea I had in the shower (no, not kidding), and four years later here we are. Working on this blog full time. It helps me in so many ways. As a blogger your best chance for success is to plan and produce content ahead of time to stay ahead of schedule and or if any mishaps, there’s time to make corrections. When it comes to making sure you’re consuming proper fuel (aka, eating a good ol’ home cooked meal instead of a greasy processed burger from the fast food joint ) best to plan ahead as well, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. I weighed over 200 lbs at one point. I now now marked 185 and that number is still going down thanks to exercise and you guessed it, meal prep.
I believe Tony Robbins says it best:
In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
