Plan Ahead and Be Prepared. This is going to be my mantra in the days leading up to Christmas and the end of the 60 Day Challenge at the gym.
I am finding that if I don’t plan ahead – I fall miserably off the wagon of eating healthy.
If I don’t plan ahead as to what I am buying for Christmas presents and for whom – I go exceedingly far, above and beyond any budget that I might have established.
Planning for me is crucial. My brain is all over the place if I don’t have a plan of what is coming up. I feel very overwhelmed and overwhelmed leads to anxiety attacks, which leads to depression. Planning helps me multi-task.
For nutrition – I like to plan out my menu for the week. Write my shopping list and food prep as much as possible. When I do this, I am less tempted to eat out because I will have food waiting on me at home or I can bring it with me.
When I plan for Christmas – I like to make a list of the people I am buying presents for and approximately, how much I will spend on their gift. If I am going to do a handmade gift, I need to start gathering supplies and getting them made in October.
Planning ahead and being prepared isn’t always easy…. trust me. What’s that well known quote – “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” But for me – most of the time, planning keeps me on the straight and narrow.
What are some ways you plan ahead and stay prepared for nutrition and the holidays?
