So my plan each Monday is to briefly share what has worked for me (us as a family) to stay motivated throughout our health and fitness path! A common theme among many of the posts to date is the need to be organized and prepared. This can go along way when you have a specific goal in mind, whether this be to lose weight, improve eating habits or simply just become a happier you. The post published yesterday that talks about becoming a healthier you and how it can be easy really hits this point home.
For me I don’t and won’t stay accountable unless I plan for the week ahead. My husband is the same way, if we don’t organize and plan the meals for the week or figure out when we need to bring gym clothes to work, we end up eating a lunch or two out, and for sure take the easier, less healthy way out at dinner time (and skip the gym out of pure laziness). When we do that, we always beat ourselves up over having not been just a bit more organized. Really, that’s what’s key for us … organization.
To stay the track we need to plan, plan, and plan some more.
We try to remind ourselves that making these lasting lifestyle modifications will eventually become a natural way of life.
