Do you hate it when you forget something?

I  do! I try to be super organized and plan ahead and have everything laid out and prepared way in advance. Well, yesterday despite my best efforts I failed miserably. I forgot my lunch at the house.

I looked at my calendar the night before, I knew that I’d have to be prepared because my schedule was full in the morning. So, I packed my lunch, I put it in a shopping bag, I even remembered a bottle of water and I left it in the refrigerator. That way, when I woke up all I had to do was grab the bag and head out the door. It was THE perfect plan… Almost.

Unfortunately, even though I planned ahead, I looked at my calendar, I made the meals, it was all stacked away, I forgot to grab it. Kind of a bonehead move. As my grandfather would say, “If brains were dynamite I you wouldn’t have enough to blow your nose.”

Sometimes you have to improvise.

So, when I got to the school, where I coach strength and conditioning. I had to improvise because I was starving. I went into the concession stand and “purchased” (had to leave an IOU, didn’t have a dollar, don’t tell the Athletic Director : )  trail mix. Trail mix has nuts, some raisins, and yes it had some MM’’s, but for 270 calories  it’s hard to get a better bang for your buck at a school than that.

It would have been really easy to set a reminder on my phone. I could have just put snacks like jerky or something in the fridge at the school so I didn’t have to resort to such thievery and dire measures :-). Yes….I’m going to pay the dollar. But I didn’t have a dollar on me and trust me nobody wanted to see a child die because of the hunger pains I was under..

What about you?

Do you have a plan? Do you have a routine and guidelines that makes it so that 90% of the time you’re successful? I hope you do. if not let me design an exercise program for you as well as provide you with guidelines regarding your nutrition.

Keeping it short and sweet today, go be awesome! Plan ahead and if you must improvise 🙂
