Want to lose 20lbs? Schedule it in.

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably gained a few pounds over the years. They sneak up on you, and are born from sitting all day, not eating the right foods, and not having time to make health a priority. 

This can be easily fixed and I want to show you how I began leveraging my schedule, and why I don’t worry about it anymore. 

I suggest blocking out specific times each day for exercise, meal prep, cooking, and eating. You make health apart of your schedule. 

The goal is to make it something we do without really thinking about it (and in turn reap the rewards) 

Ways to make this glorious schedule actually happen: 

  1. Write it down. I personally sat down and scheduled out what I’m doing for almost every hour of the day. This isn’t meant to be restrictive – it’s actually quite freeing to know what I’ll be doing all day. 
  2. Block out time. Have time specifically for exercise in the morning. Time to make your lunch and to actually eat it and enjoy it. 
  3. Make it easy. If you know you don’t want to cook dinner every night, prep stuff beforehand. Have it ready for you. If you don’t like picking out your gym clothes each morning, have them laid out. 
  4. Show up. This is the whole point of the schedule. You’re meant to do the things that you wrote down. The follow through is absolutely critical. 
  5. Have a reward. Give yourself something in exchange for creating this routine. Maybe it’s buying a new swimsuit when you lose 5lbs. Or maybe you go out dancing one night. Have something that will make this worth it to you.
