I find that choosing all of my food for the day right away in the morning keeps it all under control. When I'm looking for something to snack on, all I need to do is check my planner and see what's left for the day. When it's time to make dinner, I'm not spending time trying to make a decision.
Sometimes it takes longer than other times but it also ensures that all my nutritional needs are covered.

Too often we say we have no time to exercise. The best things is to plan exercise like how we plan our meals. On my busy days, I plan my exercises for early morning...or just make sure I plan for even a 20 minute workout at some point throughout the day...quick but counts. We have to make time for our workouts or they will never get done when we get caught up with life!
Mornings are not my best time of day. As a stay at home mom, I can flit away a few hours of the morning and then wonder where the time went. My new working plan is to plan my morning the night before. When I get into bed, I think about what I want to accomplish and then visualize myself performing my planned activities. This morning I was very slow moving. Because I had planned and visualized my morning, I accomplished my plan. Slowly, but I accomplished it all the same!
Benefit: A body in motion stays in motion. Being productive in the morning carries on into the rest of the day.
I plan extra time in the morning two days a week so I can really go all out when I'm getting ready for work. I usually do it on Monday and Thursday so I can start both the week and the weekend feeling awesome about myself!
