Here’s Step 1 Of Your Nutrition Action Plan

1. PREPARE FOR SUCCESS 

You should definitely prep your food ahead of time but you also need to prep your life! I schedule everything that needs to get done and block off my time. Yeah, stuff happens but if you leave everything, including meal prep and workouts for whenever you get to it, more stuff usually happens. I’m also the type that likes structure and having a plan. This is what today looked like for me.

630 Wake up, brush my teeth, wash my face, and make coffee.

645-8 Have some coffee and water and eat breakfast while checking emails and messages from online clients.

8-845 Write programming and exercise prescriptions.

9-10 Take class and workout.

10-11 Walk, cool down, and eat lunch.

11-2 Do the homework that my coach gave me. Today it happens to be writing out minute by minute what the perfect class looks like in my eyes. This will improve both the client’s experience and allow coach’s to know what is expected.

2-230 Eat again.

230-430 Run payroll, look at May’s business metrics and the upcoming weeks.

430-730  Spend time with my family.

DINNER + UNWIND

10:30 BED

Now copy and paste that template for each day and start filling it in based on what you know you need to do. If you have meetings and things scheduled it’s easy to fill it up, today I don’t have anything! Make sure you bold out your meals. Now, what will you eat each time you have bolded out? If you have 3 bolded out times per day, you have 15 meals to decide what you’re eating. Failing to plan is planning to fail.

BREAKFAST: 

1 Perfect Bar

1 Triple Zero Greek Yogurt

LUNCH:

4 Eggs with veggies, oatmeal, and a piece of fruit.

SNACK:

Deli meat, pretzels, and a piece of fruit. 

SNACK:

A protein shake or a protein bar.

DINNER:

Typically consists of meat or fish, rice or sweet potato, and steam fresh veggies or salad.

I try to repeat this each day. I’m more productive when I have a plan, especially since I’m VERY easy to distract! If my wife asks me to do something I either do it right then and there or tell her when I can do it based on my schedule.  

YOUR SHOPPING LIST

Each week we make a shopping list ahead of time. This makes it easier to only buy what we need and not what looks good in the moment!

THE NEXT TWO ACTION STEPS COMING AT YOU:

2. WHAT DO I EAT AND HOW MUCH DO I EAT? 

3. CONSISTENCY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN A PERFECT PLAN.
