The night before prep all of your food for the next day. This way it is easy to grab your healthy choices as you run out the door. No excuse to grab convenience junk food or stop by a fast food joint on your way to work or other errands.

When you get home from your workout and unload your dirty clothes, immediately repack for the next workout. That way you are ahead of the game and sense organization is key to following through with your good intentions, then you will be prepared ahead of time and it takes less time and energy.
Maintenance is tough. Don't come into the house starving without a thing to eat. Spend some time on the weekend preparing ahead. A couple of recipes cooked and pre-portioned in the fridge makes it much easier to be a success on a busy week night when you simply don't feel like breaking out the cookware. Plus, you have a nice home cooked meal to sit down to ... now, that's a treat! 481
Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where we may not have a healthy meal or snack on hand as we're out and about. Be prepared ahead of time in case you absolutely have to make a fast food stop. Research menus online and make a list of healthier options at local fast food places. Keep the list in your car (next to a baggie of almonds 334 !) so you're ready to make good choices if and when it becomes necessary.
