PLAN AHEAD

Subject: Healthy Habits Challenge Day 3 – make a plan


WOW – it’s Day 3 of the Healthy Habit Challenge already.

You’re doing great!

This challenge is all about realistic baby steps. The easier the changes can be for you, the easier it will be to make them stick.

One of the most important things you can do for your health is to plan ahead.

Planning ahead is one of the most important keys to reaching your goals, and maintaining your ideal weight.

You know the saying “When you fail to plan, you plan to fail,” right? I find this to be so very true when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle. It does take a little planning, but it’s well worth it.

You’ll want to look at your week ahead of time (probably on Sunday morning), so you can be proactive with finding time to exercise and prepare healthy meals. What do you need to have ready for the week in order to be more prepared?

What days and times can you exercise? On those super busy days, can you find 20-30 minutes for some kind of physical activity? Maybe talk a walk or do yoga at home.

Plug it into your calendar as if it’s an important appointment, so you don’t forget. Plan ahead the night before to get your workout clothes ready, so you’ll be ready to go.

If I left things to chance, I would probably never exercise or cook very many meals at home.

We’re all busy, and have a million things to juggle, and this is why planning is so important to your success.

If you find yourself wondering what’s for dinner, and it’s 5:00 pm, you probably failed to plan. It happens to all of us, believe me. I’m not perfect either, but I plan things out a lot more now, and it’s a lot less stressful and a whole lot healthier. Busy nights might call for putting a meal together in the crockpot, so it’s ready when you get home.

On Saturday or Sunday, plan out your week and your menu so you can get to the grocery store to stock up on what you need for the week.

By taking just a little bit of extra time to plan, you can make sure that you always have healthy food choices at your fingertips, and you aren’t rushing to make the quick, convenient, highly-processed choices.

What planning can you do this week that will help you stay on track, and accelerate your success?

Join the conversation in the thread below, and let us know.

See you there,

Wishing you all the best,
