When I get home after working a full day, I am TIRED. The mere thought of exercise, or even healthy cooking, can be a bit daunting. Yet it is critically important to maintain our health through proper nutrition and exercise.
So what is the solution?!?
The key is planning ahead.
My biggest issue was lack of planning. I am not a morning person (sure picked the wrong profession, didn’t I), so I would often find myself rushing around in the morning in order to get into work at a reasonable hour. I’d fumble around and often would fail to eat breakfast. And of course, this would mean, no time to pack a lunch. Inevitably, by 11:00am I was STARVING. Down to the hospital cafeteria I would go with all of my cravings in full effect. Not the ideal scenario.
Determine what your ideal caloric intake is and then plan accordingly.
Plan your meals – ALL of them, even your snacks for the day. And when I say PLAN, I actually mean WRITE IT DOWN!! Create a menu for the week, taking into consideration your daily schedule. Check out this sample 1500 calorie meal plan.
These are my tips for the day. Take time to develop your healthy eating plan.
