I used to procrastinate on EVERYTHING. But I learned in college, that the rush from the original assignment was just as adrenaline pumping as the last-minute adrenaline rush - So if something needs to get done - I hang on to that initial rush and do it before the rush runs out! Now, if it's something mundane I can't do right away, I write it down on a short list and add something exciting to it, like "buy toothpaste AND get a new magazine." It's a little Pavlovian but it works!

I always start a project early and then let myself relax until the last few days and rush rush rush to get it done. I've been doing the same thing with my exercise habits. Stay motivated and don't become a procrastinator!
Keep something healthy and convenient at the front of your fridge so you can grab it quickly when you need something NOW. Whether you pre-package your own portions or use grocery store convenience foods like carrot snack packs, it will make a huge difference in what you eat if it's something easy for you to grab.
You can pre-portion salad into bowls, pre-cut vegetables for snacking, and pre-portion nuts so you don't overdo it.
Quaker Oats- Oat So Simple. Does what it says on the tin basically. It's great for breakfast, snack or quick lunch. Its very easy to make as you only need to add water. The golden syrup flavoured one is very tasty and only has 190 calories. The original one is also very good and has a perfect creamy porridge texture. I like to have one of these in the morning for breakfast as it keeps me feeling full throughout the day and makes me eat less at lunch. Its very quick and easy, with no mess.
Perfect for when you're in a rush, and you still get meals fitted into a busy schedule :)
