Michigander here too! Welcome to the forum - your goals are definitely possible with smart eating and training. I had the same problem with finding time to eat healthy food since I'm a college student and work at the same time - it's possible, you just need to start getting in the habit of buying tubberware containers and precooking all of your meals on a single day of the week.
Thanks for the reply. Enjoying the cold air we've been having? lol
Eating healthy, for the most part has always come naturally. I always loved veggies and fruit. My issue really stems I think by what I eat and how much of it I eat. I eat to little of this and to much of that, it ruins the dietary needs. It happens, I think out of convenience. Like you said, "I had the same problem with finding time to eat healthy food since I'm a college student and work at the same time".
The preparing ahead of time sounds like a good idea actually! It will make things easier in the end.
