I am a planner. I like to know exactly what is going to happen before the time comes. I HAD to find out if I was having a boy or a girl before I gave birth to my kiddos. I needed to plan their rooms, clothes, toys etc.
When I am going on a trip, I write lists. I list what needs to be packed and I list the things we will be doing with addresses and phone numbers. Needless to say, I am not a huge fan of spontaneity. Spontaneity leads me to make poor choices about food and keeps me on the sofa instead of working out.
On Sundays, I have been making my breakfasts and lunches for the week so I don't even have to think about what I feel like having each day. Lately, I have been doing the same with my workouts. I plan on what workouts I am going to do each day. I make sure I have a variety of things to do, so that I am not bored.
All of this helps me stay on track. I don't stray from my plan. I don't take the easy workout and I continue to challenge myself and complete harder and harder workouts.
What do you do to help you stay on track?
