No Time for Excuses

Poor preparation equals poor performance. Over the years I've heard the same things over and over.  I don't have enough time to eat healthy.  I don't have enough time to cook.  I was in a rush and I didn't have anything so I had to eat fast food.  All of these excuses (To explain (a fault or an offense) in the hope of being forgiven or understood) will get you NOWHERE in your journey to physique progression.  If you’re willing to put the time into the gym everyday or however much you train, don't you want to see the visual changes in your body?  So this being said, I wanted to give some basic advice on food preparation.  Cook in BULK.  This will eliminate any excuse that you may be telling yourself or others around you.  This will keep the progress coming and will allow you to not have to  think of  what you’re going to eat next which will most likely lead to unhealthy decisions when you don't prepare.  When you already have it planned out  it makes it A LOT easier to stay on track rather than eating one healthy meal  and not knowing what you might have for your next meals.  This is setting yourself up for failure.  Remember making excuses will get you NOWHERE.  My suggestion would be to prepare food for 2-3 days.  The only foods I do not cook in bulk are egg whites and anytime I have fish.  Buy some nice Tupperware and a small cooler.  Most days I will just use zip lock baggies and eat my meal right out of the bag cold.  If you are away from home all day long, make sure to take extra food.  It's better to have a little extra rather then not having enough and ending up starving and making a poor choice. This is where the EXCUSE will set in.  I know this is a monotenous way to eat but when you want something bad enough you will do what it takes.  Food will always be there and every meal of your life doesn't have to be feeding a craving or be tasteful. Discipline, Dedication, and Persistence will guarantee you the body you DREAM of obtaining.
