I came up with every excuse possible... working too much, traveling too much, etc. No more excuses! If I can plan my menu the night before and pack a cooler, I am good to go! I can also work out anywhere when traveling. Many of the Anytime Fitness locations offer a $10 a day pass! JUST DO IT!

Plan ahead for each day what you will eat and when you will exercise. It's easier to make good choices vs. lame excuses when you have a game plan in mind. Also, be sure to have a Plan "B", just in case your original plans go awry!
Plan your work, work your plan OR the other way around would be plan to fail, fail to plan!!! ORAGNIZATION is the KEY to SUCCESS! Keep GOOD snacks on HAND ALWAYS, cut up all veggies AS SOON AS YOU GET THEM HOME and COOK your greens as soon as you get home too!! Then you have NO EXCUSES!!!
Plan, plan, plan. I make batches of healthy snacks which need no refrigeration. Example : sugar free meringues, I change the flavouring often so I don't get bored ; meat crisps (put lean meat in the oven until it is crispy). I keep tupperwares at work and home, and refresh them regularly. That way if I have a pang for something sweet or salty I do not have excuses to make poor choices.
If you are not creative, look on the internet or Spark Recipes. Loads of people invest time in sharing their diet culinary successes so you can enjoy them!
