Be Prepared

I had a decent weekend --  food and exercise wise.  I didn't do the exercise I told myself I would do, but I still got some in.

I'm writing to today to tell you that this week, although challenging, has been MUCH better than my previous week.  I showed more self control (granted not enough) than the weekend prior and can feel myself getting back into the grove of things.

What I wanted to post about though is being prepared.  I have a lunch today that I forgot about and being that I wasn't perfect over the weekend, I definitely want to show myself that I can still be in control.  So I looked up salads from this place we're going to (that actually had the nutritional values posted on their website - PERFECT).  I signed up for online ordering and ordered my lunch.  So not only did I force myself to make a good decision, I also can't change my mind when I get there to something less healthy.

This worked out perfectly for me... and I suggest that you try doing the same to a restaurant that you will be visiting soon.  If you can't pre-order online, at least look it up before you go.  Then write down what you will order - and MAKE yourself order what is on that piece of paper of yours.

We are not perfect, but we can be prepared!

I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After!
