Scheduling Your Healthy Lifestyle

     We all know what happens when we don’t have food prepped in the fridge, and it’s the end of a long day – we order take out or make a run through the nearest fast food restaurant. And when we don’t have a plan for our exercise, it’s easy to get to the end of the day and realize that we’re just too tired to work out at that point of the day!

     However, a few hours of planning and prepping can help prevent these pitfalls! And it’s super easy. Really. Here are some tips to make it easy:

  • On Sunday afternoon, using a list of clean, healthy foods, make a grocery list that is based on a few easy meals and snacks.

  • On a calendar page, list all the meals you’ll have that day, and stick to it throughout the week!

  • Take your snacks and your lunch with you to work whenever possible. It will save you money, and you’ll KNOW that you’re making healthy choices!

  • Drink two eight-ounce glasses of water as soon as you get up, and the same before each meal. That will ensure that you get enough water to keep you hydrated throughout the day, AND it will help curb your hunger so you eat less at every meal.

  • When it comes to planning exercise, schedule a specific time every day for your walk or your workout – that way, it becomes an easy habit to create.

  • Have a buddy who’s expecting you – it’s harder to cancel if you know someone is waiting on you!

     Taking time to plan your meals and your exercise, and taking time to drink a bottle of water before each meal, will ensure that you’re prepared to make healthy choices. And those choices will soon become healthy habits that will last you a lifetime!
