I wanted to write and encourage each of you to give 5-10 minutes today thinking about what your week needs to look like in order to move forward towards your health and fitness goals. Do you need to schedule some early morning workouts or cardio sessions? If you have opportunity, can you carve out some time during your workday for a quick walk outside? Maybe the weekends are where you need to dedicate some time to exercise…the point is to give it thought and schedule it out. We are more likely to stay committed to the plan we have in place for our success if we can envision what it takes to get there each week!
The same principle can be applied to meal preparation and planning. Nate and I figure out on sundays what our lunches and dinners will look like for the week and then do one big shopping trip for as many of the groceries as we are able to purchase in advance. This cuts down on last minute dinner planning that could lead to take out or other less-than-ideal choices and allows us to plan for meals that are wholesome and healthy. Sunday just happens to be the day that works best for our family. Take some time today to consider how a little food preparation and planning could help you take healthier steps when it comes to your nutrition. Small steps taken now will pay BIG dividends later!
Let’s start this week with positive momentum in the right direction! You CAN do this! Not sure how to implement a plan that works for you? Ask me how today!
Have a GREAT week!
