Structure is the KEY TO SUCCESS!!
Monday, July 27, 2009
Well since I didn't get to do a video blog last week (I was a little busy to say the least) I decided to do one today. Last night I went to bed thinking about my blog I had just written. I had reflected upon the fact that I let my structure (which is my security blanket) fall short as I was so excited about the team challenge and all the new members. But I made a promise to myself to get myself back on track starting this morning.
My video blog is about structure and my meal planning and how important that is to me. Everyday I plan out another day's meals in the future (1 week from then) as the nutritional tracker will only let you plan up to a week ahead. That way I always have a week of meals planned in advance. Let's just say no meal planning for this week was done last week,,, so now I have a whole week to plan.., I can catch it up, but it was a reminder to me to keep my focus on MY goals.
Another part of my structure is my sleep schedule, I am a night owl, so last week I spent alot of time working on the new team and got a little out of my sleep schedule as I had so much addrenaline running through me. I just couldn't believe how many people were signing up for the team challenge. So I am committed to getting back to my sleep schedule this week as well.
I would have to say that the biggest achievement I have made since June is seeing how my structure affects the entire family. If I have a plan for the meals and we follow the plan then everyone is eating healthy... but if momma fails and doesn't follow the plan well it just doesn't happen. So structure is my key to success and planning my meals in advance and making sure I have the food items I need to make that plan happen. When I fall out of my sleep schedule, guess what, that messes up my meal plan, if you miss breakfast because you didn't wake up until 11 and now it's time for lunch and you missed taking your meds at 8 am like usually, well that blows the structure and sets the whole family up for failure. So I must stick to my structure, meal planning and sleep schedule so that our family and I can tackle this weight loss together.
Have a blessed day!
