Review schedule and block out time for grocery shopping, meal prep, and exercise.

Not having time is the #1 excuse people give up on any lifestyle change. Here’s the thing, there’s never going to be enough time so it’s UP TO YOU to make changing your lifestyle a priority. One of my favorite quotes is if it’s a priority then you’ll make the time, it’s it not you’ll make an excuse.

Take time that first week to review your schedule and make time for everything that needs to be a priority. So, this means time to create meal plans, grocery shop, meal prep, and exercise. ←-those things needs to happen!

Also, you need to make time to keep your hot zones under control. This means putting in place routines that keep chaos to a minimum. So, block time to do laundry, weekly cleaning chores, and other morning and night routines to keep life running smoothly.

Of course, many of these things are going to take longer than a week to make habit but the point is to take that first week to get ready! This time around you’re going to do things differently.

Like I said, you’re going to relearn how to start losing weight. Don’t just jump in without a plan. Take that first week to really set your environment up for success. In the end, this is will make the difference between “another failed” weight loss attempt and finally creating long-term healthy habits!
