Every weekend I plan what my week will look like with my meals. I track them ahead of time and then use the sparkpeople tool to print out a grocery list. It's so handy. I find that when I do that I focus on just what I need when I go grocery shopping so I don't even get a chance to purchase something that may sabotage my efforts.

I try to plan all our family's meals weekly, this includes the commitment to cooking healthy also. It doesn't take as much time as you would think to cook at home. We eat as a family and every member helps so dinner is generally done in a half hour. Try this at least 5 nights a week and reap reward
I plan my meals and add them to my tracker once a week, then I know what I am eating..NO guessing just eat the planned meal. If I am going out I check out the menus and then track what I plan again, no guessing so I am not tempted to eat other things, I rarely even look at the menu if I do this. The more I plan the better I am eating and can handle small challenges when they come up.
