Organization is Key
We always talk about discipline, hard work and dedication when we talk about achieving goals and these are all important attributes without a doubt but often times a key skill gets overlooked is organization.
Being organized will be critical to achieving your goals, particularly when we talk about nutrition. One tool that can help you stay organized with your nutrition is writing out a menu with your daily intake detailed. Each meal should be outlined containing the specific foods as well as the time of consumption. This way you can pre-plan your day and make sure you have what you need to eat when you need to eat it. After all, you can know what you are supposed to eat but if that meal is not available when you need it, it will do you no good.
If you miss one meal you may think it is not a big deal and by itself I would agree with you. However, if you miss one meal even every other day it will start to add up. Think about all the missed opportunities to improve over a year's time if you are not organized!
