Want to get in better shape?

Is there a certain date that’s coming up where you want to be able to fit into a certain pair of jeans or a certain dress?

One thing you can do to ensure that you get the results that you want is to plan what you will eat. Plan what you will eat and when you will eat. Doing this will help you to get to your goal faster.

So for the seven days plan out your meals. Write out what you are going to eat each day. It will take a little bit of time and planning, but it will be worth it. Write out when you are going to eat those meals. As you eat those meals, enjoy what you are eating. Try to sit down and really taste the food you are consuming.

You have to plan. We have to plan our meals. The benefits of doing this are great.

1. It takes the guess work out of eating.

2. It makes it easier to say “NO”  or “NOT YET” to certain foods.

3. It will cut down on your grocery bill. You will actually be buying foods for your meals.

4. You will influence someone in your family, church, or at work about what it looks like to eat healthy.

5. You will get results.

Now be sure that you don’t stumble over the fact that maybe you didn’t eat exactly what you said you were and at the right time. Give yourself some flex and look at what happened today, and how you can do better the next day. Simple as that.
