Are you preparing to fail?

“Failure to prepare is preparing to fail” — John Wooden.

This guy knew what was up; and it’s true for any facet of your life. For me, when I take the time on Sunday to plan out the week’s meals and prepare snacks & lunch for each day, I face each new day set up to succeed. If I have snacks ready, I’m not going to make a last-minute unhealthy grab based on an impulse. I’m not going to let my energy levels drop by going more than 3 hours without fueling my body. When you don’t prepare, make time and plan out your nutrition, there will always be a million excuses as to why you “can’t”; or…why you keep failing.

The same holds true for exercise. Start each day KNOWING when you’re going to move your body and build it into your day. Pack your gym clothes the night before, along with your lunch & snacks. Plan your day around your exercise, instead of finding time for exercise sometime during your day — because there will again, always be an excuse as to why you don’t “have time.” Also, have a PLAN FOR your workouts — whether it’s taking a class or doing your own routine, schedule an amount of time it’s going to take and stick to it. All of the workouts we post here, for example are all under 30 minutes. And everyone can set aside 30 minutes, especially once you know it’s only going to take…30 minutes. 🙂

So, give yourself a heads start and set yourself up for success! Find a method and routine that works for you and hold yourself accountable — because remember…when you fail to prepare, you have no one to blame for the failure, than YOUR lack of preparation.

We’d love to hear what ways you prepare or even ways you fail — once we identify where we’re going wrong, then we can seek a solution, right?! And it’s always great to learn from each other!
