In Pure Barre the instructors always talk about setting your intentions. Setting your intentions is very important on the journey to wellness. You need to set your goals and set your mind on completing them. You need to realize that most difficult tasks are mind over matter.
Recently my power went out right before I was going to cook dinner. Instead of ordering unhealthy delivery like I normally do, I set my mind on getting something healthy. This was a big step for me. The more I make healthy choices, the easier they become.
My biggest goal right now is for healthy decisions to become natural. I know that if I set my mind on completing my goals I can do it!
Setting your intentions for healthy choices begins with the grocery store. By planning ahead you are more likely to stick to the healthy choices you plan. I find by having a plan when I get to the store I can easily walk past all of the unhealthy options. If I’m having trouble in the store I practically jog to get away from that section and it makes it easy to keep on track.
I start with a meal plan, move to making a list, then adjust as needed. I like to use the Kroger app to plan my list so I can keep track of how much it is going to cost me. Throughout the week I make changes to the list and meal plan as needed.
