Good Monday morning!
So I just got back from my morning walk around my quaint little town of Lake Country (what a view hey?) and I was thinking about what to write to you this morning that will help you get one step closer to getting rid of sagging arms forever.
As I was walking about, listening to some music on my iPod, I let my wind wander, and I suddenly had an idea 'flash' into my head about what I wanted to discuss with you.
This is what I thought...
What was the reason that I got out of bed at 6:00am this morning as opposed to hitting the snooze button a gajillion times and annoying the heck out of my wife? What was the reason that I ate a healthy breakfast of a half a grapefruit, two poached eggs, and my steel cut oats? What was the reason that In the last month I've made more progress on my fitness goals than in the last 6 months combined?
It was so simple it was rediculous.
I just wrote it down!
I know how wishy washy goal setting can be for some of us, and I'm not going to start preaching to you about how often you should set goals, and so forth, but check this out...
When I sit down sunday night, and plan out my week's meals, and my week's workout routines, I can personally attest to the fact that I have nearly double the success with my own programs!
It really comes down to having a plan.
If you know eactly what time you have to get up, you know exactly what exercises you need to do, exactly how long it will take you, exactly what you are going to have for breakfast, and you know that you have all the right foods in the house, then you are SET UP FOR SUCCESS!
On the other hand you could wake up 'around an hour' before you think you need to, hit the snooze buttons a couple of times, get up and stumble around the bedroom while you try to ponder whether you should spend 20 minutes on that pilates tape, or maybe go for a walk. You then waste time trying to decide, and since you only have a little time left, you say "screw it" and get started on breakfast, and instead of it being a healthy breakfast, you don't really know what you should eat, so you grab for the muffin because it's quick and because "I already blew it today for being healthy" and you leave the house feeling guilty, stressed, and tired, and you haven't even accomplished the two simple things you set out to do. Exercise, and have a healthy breakfast.
Chances are, since you got off to such a bad start this morning, the rest of the day will be shot as well.
You must, must MUST have a PLAN!
You need to sit down on Sunday, and plan out your week in advance to set yourself up for sucess. Write down what you will have for your meals, what groceries you will need to buy, what exercises you will be doing, what time you will be working out. These details are vital.
By following this one simple rule of writing down your weekly plan I personally gaurantee you will more than double your chances of success!
