Plan your days well. For the next few weeks, schedule your life. Plan your workouts, meals and daily activities. Design a food plan and pre pack your meals and snacks. Lay out your clothes for work and play. Here is how I plan my week:
On Sunday, I write out my gym schedule for the week. I look at my commitments. I volunteer at my church, host for Lifetree, mentor young entrepreneurs, we are in a couples life group and I drop everything when my kids need me. That doesn’t count date night with my husband.
My life is very busy. If I look at my calendar and see that I have three evening commitments in a week, then I have to work out in the morning. I prefer to schedule activities after the gym, but can’t always do that.
This part is REALY important! Before I go to bed I MUST have the following done. I lay out my clothes for my morning workout, pick my clothes for work, pack my food for the day. Load up my gym bag, assuming I am showering there. Every detail has been thought out in advance. I still have my business so I have to print my orders the night before.
I have it all timed out so that I can take my supplements and blend my shake. But, if I skip one thing from the night before, I will miss my window and will be late for my 5:45AM class.
Sounds crazy, but it's not. I feel like I have accomplished something when I leave the gym. I have made some nice friends at the gym and we always comment on how easy it would have been to stay in bed that morning. That sentence is ALWAYS followed by, how we never regret getting up and following our plan.
Plan your meals and health regime and follow it. You won't regret it,
