A few of my favorite tools:
Planning on Sundays- I usually grocery shop on the weekends and spend an hour prepping my lunches. I cut up fruit, veggies, dish out hummus or dips, make sure I have enough snacks for at work, and think about what I will make that week. The more I prep the better I eat all week. Sunday afternoons my fridge is usually pretty full of containers and items ready to grab for my lunch box.
Schedule Your Workouts- I put Monday, Wednesday and Friday workouts at 6am on my calendar. Yes it can be hard to get up and get going but I know how much better I will feel after a workout. I have a lot more energy during the day too!
Talk to Someone- If you are having a hard time with choices, talk to a Nutritional Consultant. SlimKicker is giving away an email session.
Weigh Your Food- Yes it seems extreme but if you are really dedicated it can help you really know everything you are eating. I use my scale in baking or very complex recipes to make sure I have everything measured accurately because I want it to turn out! One of my favorite foodies, Alton Brown, is a big believer in weighing everything. My scale comes in handy for some of my great-grandma’s recipes that were translated from Czech and are in grams. You can clearly see how many grams are there versus 1/2 cup.
Want to win a kitchen scale and a free email consultation with a nutritionist from the SlimKicker team? Just let me know how you stay motivated to make healthy decisions.
