Week #5 - How Will You Be Active Tomorrow?

It's a new month, so it's time to start work on a new routine. In February we'll be focusing on getting in some activity every day.

One great way to ensure that you get your activity accomplished is to Have A Plan. I know, I pull out the Have A Plan card all the time, but really! It helps!

One of the things I love about our 12-Week Tracker is the Weekly Plan pages. I probably mentioned this before in relation to meal planning, because while the photo above is for your activity, there's also a page to plan out your meals!

So what you see here is a blank slate for my weight loss week, which starts tomorrow. As soon as I get this post up, I'm going to start my planning for the week. I'm going to put in my exercise plans as well as do some meal planning. With this done, the week becomes a no-brainer.

Do you plan your activity ahead of time? If so, does it help you stay on track? Even if you don't know specifically what activity you'll do, planning for the time it will happen could be enough to get you out there and doing it. I know from this Wednesday's meeting that we have some really active people out there, and you inspire me!

Funny, I find helping my coaching clients to plan their activity is incredibly effective as getting good intentions to translate to actual workouts.

And yet I rarely do it myself! However, I'm conditioned enough by now after decades of regular exercise that I can get by with being flexible and intuitive. Um, sensible eating? Not so much!

Planning activity or having some sort of worksheet will help people check their set targets and how far they have cone in their race to keep fit. It a great idea, very great indeed
