If you read my blog or participate in programs you will hear me talking about planning ahead until I’m blue in the face.
I can’t stress it enough.
Without a plan exercise falls by the wayside and healthy eating is too much work. Especially if you have little ones at home.
Before Thanksgiving rolls around make a detailed exercise plan and start meal planning every Sunday (I share how I meal plan right here).
There will be parties. Lots of parties. And you should ENJOY them!
So rather than stressing about the weekends focus on Monday – Friday.
Sometimes we think too black and white (I’m on health kick vs. I’m eating so bad I may as well continue eating bad until I’m ready to diet and lose the weight). Let’s ditch this way of thinking. If you know your weekends are going to be indulgent, keep your diet clean and exercise throughout the week.
