I hope you had a great weekend! And if you are a mother, either to a human or fur baby, I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day as well 🙂
We had a great weekend. It rained all weekend, but because of that we got a lot of things done inside the house.
I also checked in with all of the busy moms I work with, something I do every weekend so that they know what they have to do to get ready for the week ahead with meal prep and/or training and to make sure they are on the right track to meeting their goals.
In simple terms….plan!
See I believe the quote above.
If you have a goal but don’t make a plan to reach that goal, it’s simply a wish.
And as simple as it sounds to make and keep a plan, it’s not always that simple.
One busy mom in particular is having a bit of a hard time planning her week and getting her meal prep and training in.
It’s not her fault, she’s not being lazy, actually very far from that. See she is a new mom, a wife, has a full-time job that she just went back to and wants to get back to her pre-baby body.
That’s a lot for 1 person.
But it seems that every time she plans out her week, something comes up and pushes everything aside. Mostly being her training and meal prep.
So this weekend we talked about her schedule and if she could pick 2 days, yes only 2 right now, that she could train and meal prep, what 2 days would that be?
She felt that M-F were out of the question right now. It’s just not in the cards. I agreed with her. I mean why set a plan to work out Mondays and Wednesdays, as an example, if you know it’s not going to work and you are just setting yourself up for failure and becoming upset.
So we decided that the weekends are her best bet for not only training but meal prep. Then as the week goes on, IF and only IF she has time, she will get a third training session in or a nice walk.
That is her plan for this week. She will train and meal prep over the weekend and if she can, get in another training session or walk.
Will that be the plan always?
Next week might change completely. It all depends on if this plan works and if her schedule changes or not. But we know for this week, this is what the plan is.
This is just one of the pieces of the fat loss puzzle I give the busy moms I work with. We come up with a plan for them, each busy mom is different, and then I keep them accountable to that plan. If the plan doesn’t work or stops working, we adjust until we find what does work.
Then we keep chugging along, adjusting as needed, until they hit their goal.
So what is your plan for hitting your goals? I’d love to hear it!
Have a great day!
