Ain't nobody got time for that!

So I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day! It is always such a good reminder of the freedoms we have as Americans because of the sacrifices of so many people that serviced, sacrificed, and even died protecting those freedoms.

Anybody watch the Indy500? Pretty crazy race right? I mean 300,000+ people is a whole ton of people! I spent Memorial Day with friends, bonfires, and food. Such a good combination!

So how many times in our life, or even week have we said that we would get around to something but then everything goes crazy and we aren't able to fit it in to the chaos of our life? So let's be honest, how many times is exercise, proper nutrition, and sleep some of the first things to go?

And this is understandable because in the moment it may not seem as important as the other priorities that we have in our life. But when we really look at our week, how much of the "craziness" that just jumped on us all at once did we actually know about in advance? When we really take an objective look at our week most of the times that we were speeding through the drive through, inhaling food like a vacuum cleaner, or missing the gym to drive the kids to sports we actually knew in advance.

What's that saying? "Failing to plan is planning to fail?" And isn't that so true with our business? If you don't have a plan as to where you are going and how you are going to get there chances are you won't get there.

So my challenge for you this week is to actually take 5-10 minutes and look ahead at your week. What challenges or obstacles can you already see that will probably affect either your exercise routine, your nutrition, and your sleep? So with a clear picture of those challenges how can you plan ahead to make sure you still get in your exercise, eat healthy, and maybe even get some shut eye?

Dedicated to your success,
