I find that if I eat the same thing for breakfast everyday, I do better with sticking to my healthy eating. It does away with having to make a decision about what to eat and prevents me from just grabbing anything. I don't seem to get bored with my choices but I do switch it up now and then but I always keep my choice on hand and ready to use. Oatmeal is a good option that can be eaten on a daily basis and changed up by using fruit as a topping.

I have a problem with temptation, so I prepare myself daily that I will NOT eat bad food options (i.e. stop for a soda or something to eat from fast food). This way, I am prepared to drive right past and not stop!
As I am preparing meals, I am moving and cleaning behind myself. I want to sit down and enjoy the meal and having the kitchen clean as I eat - helps lower the stress and anxiety I feel. After I grab my water and sit down - dinner is a joy!41
After making 4 smalls meals a routine, I realised an easy way for me to get in my water is to have 16 oz/2 cups while I am preparing each meal. Not only do I always remember my water, but I am less hungry and tuck away fewer calories at each meal.
