Have a Great Day
by Coach Kimmi Katte
EVERY GREAT DAY STARTS THE NIGHT BEFORE
It’s a cute notion that things will turn out exactly as they should, without deliberately putting some effort into making your goals a reality. Sadly (or not, depending on which way you look at it), your goals will only be met with intention, planning, and some actual doing.
I spend about 30 minutes each evening preparing for the following day, and I devote about 10 minutes of that time to my nutrition. The rest of the time is given to planning my exercise, mindset, and scheduling. It’s a small sacrifice of time, and well spent, especially when I consider the benefit of a well-ordered day that has been mindfully considered. Even if things go pear-shaped, as they often do, I still have a great guideline to work with because I've made my intentions very clear!
So how does a nutritionist prepare for a great day as far as food is concerned? Well, every evening I decide what I will eat the following day. I take into consideration preparation time, when I will eat and how much, and then I’ll put that information in my tracker and adjust the amounts according to my macros. Making those decisions in a calm state of mind, without the distraction of hunger, ensures better choices and follow through. The next day, all I have to do is obey the tracker!
And how does a nutritionist ensure there is consistency with supplements? Each evening I measure out my supplements into little containers for the following day so they’re ready to go. It’s pretty easy and very effective!
