I organize time in my schedule to plan out my meals and workout routines. I'll typically plan out workouts as far as 1 month in advance & I use 1-2 hours on Saturday to plan my weekly meals, about 2 hours to shop, and 3-4 hours on Sunday to cook. It leaves me SO much more time during the week to get to other chores.

The most important meal of the day, always sets the tone to how you are going to eat for the rest of the day and feel. Always have a nutritious meal already made on hand so you don't grab the sugary cereal or cookie in the cabinet. The best ones I have are slim fast shake or meal bar or some other meal supplement. I also make 1/2 cup of egg substitute the night before so all I have to do is reheat and grab a fuit or other health carb to go along with. Remember BE PREPARED!
PLAN, PLAN, PLAN! ALWAYS STAY AHEAD OF THE TEMPTATION!
When you stray from your goals the easiest way to get back on track is by planning. Plan to Succeed! Plan your food for the day Plan time to exercise..
