Because I don’t.
I struggle some days just like you and you and you.
Trial and error. Rinse, lather, and repeat.
But I do know, without a shadow of a doubt, some of the keys to success.
When it comes to keeping yourself on the straight and narrow, planning and preparation is huge.
How can you be expected to make a good snack choice when you open up your kitchen cupboards and are faced with cookies, chips, and candy?
You just can’t.
So don’t bring it into your house.
Why have the unnecessary temptation to lure you in a weak moment?
A friend of mine sometimes struggles with making the right food choices, so one night last week, she came over and we put together a meal plan. Just three dinners. To get her toes wet. And then the next day, I took her to a vegetable market we like and she bought all the ingredients to make those three dinners. And more items so she could stock her cabinets with good snack choices.
And by doing this, it became just a little bit easier.
On Saturday, another friend came over and we made a bajillion soups. And froze them all, so we had easy, healthy, grab-and-go lunches for weeks.
And by doing this, it became just a little easier.
These are not monumental tasks. But they are little tasks that add up to monumental changes.
Those little keys to success.
Baby steps, people, baby steps.
