"If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail." ~Proverbs

Sunday, October 07, 2012

"If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail." I have to agree with this Proverbs quote! No truer words have been written when it comes to me. I have more success when I plan my meals. It makes me think ahead rather than just throw something together last minute, which tends to make me eat healthier.

Just planned my fitness around my social calendar and Friday's podiatrist appointment. It's just as important to write my fitness plans into my calendar as anything else. Then I'm less apt to skip the workout. Also, it helps with meal planning if I know what time I'm working out.

Mon. advanced water aerobics class
Tues. walk or stationary bike/ST
Wed. advanced water aerobics class
Thurs. Zumba
Fri. bike/ST or water aerobics on my own
Sat. bike/ST or water aerobics on my own, depending on what I do on Fri.
Sun. rest day

My doctor's appointment is Friday morning with a podiatrist. I have bunions on both feet and am developing several hammertoes. I also have a bump on my left achilles area. The only thing that causes pain is the bunion on my left foot, so I'm hoping to have that foot taken care of first. I want to wait to schedule the surgery till the end of November since I have a 3-day trip to Branson planned for mid November, I want to dance at a wedding on Nov. 24, and I have theater tickets on the 27th to see Blue Man Group. After that, I've got nothing on my calendar till Dec. 18 so I should be good to go! I also hope to be able to dance by New Year's Eve! I'll have to ask the doc about that one:) Just have to plan to get my Christmas shopping finished in November.

Now on to meal planning emoticon and watching the Cardinal - Nationals baseball game! GO Redbirds!

    Planning is so important and I've been slacking in that department! Thanks for the reminder to do better about it.

    Let me know if you need anything after your foot surgery! I'm sure you'll be glad to get this taken care of, even if it means a little down time.

    You and I are both busy with feet issues!
    I'll be very anxious to see how your surgery goes, as I know that is in my future.
    Have a great weekend!

    You are so right! W/o planning, I never seem to have quick, healthy food available and exercise needs to be prioritized appointments on your calendar. You are doing emoticon

    planning the week ahead of time, is the only thing that gets me through the week without cheating.
