The week between Christmas and New Years always seems to be a blur. Here's a few way to get back on track.
One thing I have noticed especially recently if you don't plan for it- it probably won't happen. So when you look at the checklist above - it will seem like you need to plan and stay positive- why is that?
Both are beyond true. Why's that?
If something's written on your schedule- its more likely to happen than not.
So in regards to the checklist-
- Schedule your workouts- what you plan can happen. Be realistic- 2 to 3 times a week can get you result. Put it in your calendar. For me, I have a 2.5 year old and a 6 month old- I have to plan out when or else it certainly won't happen and I own a gym. How crazy is that? I make it as convenient as possible. I sometimes involve my little girls and I accept it may not be a perfect workout. I make sure my husband can fully take 2 or 3 times to watch them. I do the same for him.
- Map out your meals. Breakfast is always something quick and easy. Lunch and dinners are tougher. Crocpot meals make things easier. Also using a meal prep service for breakfasts and lunches/ dinners when we have nightly plans make it a whole ton easier. I use Kraving Thyme in Niagara Falls- they deliver to Depew/ Lancaster and I think they taste great and we save money. A brief outline for us helps a crazy ton as if you look at your week you can see where a healthy meal may be a problem.
- When you stay on track- give yourself a high five...life is busy and tough- celebrate those wins.
- Have fun- life is way too short not to enjoy it. Find joy in life, meals and workouts. Its gotta be fun- play a pump up tune, do it with friends, make the process fun!
