Sadie’s reply: “There’s not one specific thing I do. No matter how much we would like to be, we are not machines. Every week is different for me. Some weeks, hump day is a chance to ride out the rest of a good week. Other times, it’s an opportunity to finish on a better note, and sometimes, it’s just something I have to plow through. The important part is allowing myself that flexibility to feel how I feel and adjust accordingly.

I like to plan my meals. I think we all look forward to eating, so thinking about food is naturally energizing. Meal planning is also a great way for me to feel like I’m being proactive about my health and managing my life in a balanced way. I can finish out my week knowing I’m prepared…to eat.”
