Planning Ahead

You’re more likely to go through with things if you have a plan of how and what to do. I’m going to talk about planning your workouts and meals for the week, if you plan your workouts they’ll be easier to do. Every sunday I write out the weekdays with the muscle groups I’ll be working, for example: Monday, Core and cardio. Tuesday, legs and glutes. When I plan out my week like that I NEVER miss a workout except of course my scheduled rest day.

Planning out your workouts at the beginning of the week applies yourself mentally to your physical goals, you will be more motivated and focused on your workouts than if you don’t plan them. You can still of course spontaneously switch it up at the last minute but at least you have a guide to start with.

The same thing goes for meals, I meal prep and plan meals for the week. I make overnight oats, prep salad makings etc. You’ll be more likely to stick to your “healthy food” plan by making things for the week in advance, again it’s the act of mentally applying yourself to your physical goal that will hold you accountable.

I do my meal prepping and workout planning on sunday EVERY week as well as writing out one goal for that week(fitness or non-fitness related) You can see my previous blog post about that by clicking back a ways. It has honestly been the healthiest thing I’ve ever done for myself and I now LOVE eating salad(which i used to despise) and other healthy foods by prepping my food and forcing myself to stay on top of it. I urge you to try it out.
