If you’ve been paying attention, you know how I always stress the importance of having a plan and scheduling things into your week if they are important to you.
I love this quote from Benjamin Franklin- “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”.
Isn’t it so true? Without careful thought and preparation, nothing will take place. Well, at least nothing that you intended or hoped would take place.
So what does this have to do with your health?
If it’s important to you to nourish yourself with healthy foods, to cut back on snacking, or to start exercising again, the best way to get started and succeed is by creating a plan. But, not just any plan, a plan for change.
In my short video below I share with you why even more important than creating a plan, is planning to CHANGE that plan along the way.
We often get stuck in assuming that once our plan is in place, we must stick to it exactly. Then, when something happens that takes us off course we feel guilty, embarrassed, and discouraged.
Watch my video to find out how to plan for change and life!
The only thing we can truly count on is change.
Change happens hundreds of times a day.
Change makes us nervous.
Change is uncomfortable.
If we prepare and plan for change, we can adapt and succeed in the face of it.
Check out my sample plans/guidelines that you can use as inspiration to create your own. As mentioned in the video, I prefer using changeable spreadsheets or pencil to encourage changes throughout my week. Create your own or print these templates & fill in with PENCIL!
Don’t forget to create your plan and re-assess it daily or weekly as needed.
I change my fitness/activity schedule almost daily as things come up in my life. My meal plan seems to get changed or adapted every few days also. Being flexible has helped me stay on track in both of these areas as well as other areas of my life. I’m ready and on track when sh*t happens!
How can you plan to change this week?

Love & Change,
