Map Out Your Game Plan
You wouldn’t go on a trip without a map, be it a paper one or a GPS device, so why would you commit to a healthier lifestyle without a plan?
Just like you make up a shopping list before heading to the grocery store, you should also map out the path to your goal.
It’s just not feasible to go about an overhaul of your life without a game plan. What are you going to eat?
What exercise program will you follow? What will you be giving up in search of a healthier you?
There are so many things to consider before beginning your journey, and mapping it all out is a great way to organize your thoughts.
Remember that failure to plan is planning to fail, and you want this new lifestyle to be a success! Here are a few ways to map out your success. Establish A Daily Schedule: The days go by quickly, and it’s easy to get sucked into doing something other than what you wanted to do.
Write down a schedule for each day of the week and incorporate the times you’ll be exercising, meal prepping, and so forth.
Do your best to stick to that schedule. Say goodbye to unproductive days! Exercise Goals: If your goal is to run a marathon, then you need to first know how far you can currently run, and then work your way up in increments to reach your ultimate goal.
Push yourself a little bit more each week until you have reached and sustained your goal! Even then, why not start all over with a brand-new goal? Dietary Needs: Never leave what you’re going to eat up to chance. Plan your meals out ahead of time, for the entire week if possible.
When you’ve planned it out, you won’t fall victim to fast food, takeout, or other quick temptations. And don’t forget to incorporate healthy snacks!
