4. Consistency is key
If your goal is to eat cleaner this year and you know you are going to be doing a lot of cooking, pick a shopping day and a prep day. Stick to it, and don't change it. My best suggestion is to shop on Saturday, and prep on Sunday. Your prep day on Sunday is going to be a big day of cooking, (as you know this, because it's in your planner) so you must pass on other plans friends and family will ask of you. If you start moving your days around to accommodate other plans, you could start moving down a very slippery slope. Stick to your guns, remind yourself why you chose this goal in the first place and hold that special day and time close. It's a special time, to keep you on track of the new you that 2017 is going to bring.
5. Tell the world
Announce to your friends, your family, and co-workers about the improvements you are making for yourself. You may feel silly, and you may get a few silly looks. Don't be fearful as to the judgments you may receive. What people judge in others, they judge in themselves. Secretly, these people wish that they could be doing the same. Telling the world will help keep you accountable and sets the boundaries for future invites. If perhaps your goal is to follow a Paleo protocol this year, telling your peers now makes it much less awkward then when you arrive for dinner and you must pass on the homemade lasagna they made from scratch.
Becoming a better version of you is going to hard. There will be days (guaranteed) that you will want to quit. Going back to old habits is easy. Remind yourself this, a lot! Right now, you are pumped to crush 2017, and that is awesome!
