The best way to slimness is consistently healthy eating, exercise and thinking, and the best way to do anything consistently is to plan it and make it so easy it is inevitable.
These days our lives often seem to be getting busier and busier, but you can save time and ensure your weight loss or slimness when you plan, prepare and cultivate efficiency in every act. Make the efficient habits that will lead to slimness so ingrained in you that you can’t not do them. And then as you live like a slim, healthy, fit person, so you will be a slim, healthy, fit person!
Here are some action, planning and preparation strategies that will really help to make becoming slim so easy it’s a no-brainer!
Make it so easy to eat healthy through the busy week that you’d be crazy not to eat the lovely food you’ve prepared. Do not leave it to chance that you will eat healthy, make it a certainty. If you make your days’ healthy eating so easy, it will be a cinch to do it.
Now just because you are eating the same meal plan does not mean it has to be a boring day’s food. Make it delicious and healthy, something you love to eat each day. Look after your taste buds too, if you know you like chocolate, (like me) plan into your day one snack like 2 squares dark chocolate, some nuts and a few dried apricots, or a chocolatey dessert protein shake. If you’re counting calories it’s much easier to just count it once then keep your portion sizes the same each day.
And, if you think you’d go nuts eating the same thing, you might be surprised how much you already eat the same kind of things day after day anyway. You can either make two meal plans and rotate them, or just give yourself a bit more variety in the way you use your preparation. Maybe you make a chicken salad one day, and a turkey salad wrap the next. Use your ingenuity to create variety within the boundaries of your week. Then the next week you can create completely different meal plan.
This all takes an absolute maximum of 5 hours, including the time to plan, shop, unpack, chop and cook these preparation foods. This is time that is well spent each week and will bring you closer to slimness each time you do it. You are investing in your health, sanity and slimness each time you do this. It doesn’t matter so much when you do it as that you pick a day that works for you and do it every week on this day.
You will also find that you are much less likely to waste food having planned each meal. Getting ready in the morning is so easy when preparing your food for the day only takes 5 minutes.
Most importantly you have so much more thought energy available when you are not thinking ‘what can I have for lunch?’, ‘there’s nothing healthy here.’ or ‘oh I’ve missed my snacks today’ ,’what am I going to eat? I’m starving!’
All that time that you usually spend during the week getting your food can now be better spent in your daily activity!
When you consistently eat well your energy will increase. When you pre-plan and prepare you feel really good about yourself, calm and happy, because you’ve got the week off on the right foot. Meal planning is a task that is important and but not urgent; the key efficiency category Stephen Covey talks about in his time management book “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.
All it takes for a full healthy week of slimness is a few hours at a set time each week preparing the week. My point in suggesting eating the same thing is simply to make it easy. Though there also has been a recent study that shows less variety in food leads to habituation and then you are less likely to overeat because you know you’ve got the same delicious thing to enjoy the next day.
Either way, whether you choose to have the same meal plan each day for the week or not, planning your meals, shopping and spending a few hours on food prep each week will give you a flat tummy faster than any amount of crunches will.
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
