Life is hectic and definitely can get crazy at times. There are never enough hours in the day to get things done! Don’t let your busy schedule and full-time job get in the way of your weight loss.

Check out our busy person’s guide to losing weight:

Become a Morning Person

There are tons of things that can get in the way of an evening workout—happy hour with colleagues, late meetings, dinners…maybe it’s time to become a morning exerciser. When you work out first thing in the morning, you’re guaranteed to fit it in before the day gets busier and busier and any excuses tend to pop up. Not to mention your workout will allow you to start your day off with extra motivation and energy!

Plan & Pack Your Lunch

Sit down on Sunday and plan your week’s lunches. When you take your lunch, you have more control over how many, and what type of, calories are consumed. Planning lunches ahead of time will help you to stick with healthy options instead of grabbing something fast—and generally unhealthy—to-go. Here are some healthy grocery shopping tips to help you fill your cart with healthier items for your lunches.

Stock up on Healthy Breakfasts

Keep some non-perishable, healthy breakfast options at work or in the house to grab and go.

Keep Healthy Foods in Sight

Keep healthy foods in your sight so when you’re craving an afternoon snack, they are the first thing you see. Snacking healthy throughout the day will help to keep your hunger at bay so you don’t overeat. Keep them at your desk or on the counter at home.

Plan Workout Dates

Try switching up your workouts by working out with others! Ask a coworker, neighbor or friend to go for a run after work or a power walk during your lunch break. When you have a fitness buddy to rely on it can help you stay motivated. Plus, working out with a friend can be more fun!

Stick to the One-Drink Rule

Happy hours are inevitable and can get you into trouble weight-wise—hello beer and nachos! Stick to one drink and choose wisely. Here are 7 drinks that won’t derail your diet.

Fit in Weekend Workouts

Make up for missing a workout during the week by exercising Saturday and/or Sunday! You will start your weekend on the right foot and kick-start the week to come.

Order Coffee Black

Did you know a cup of coffee has nearly zero calories? Adding just cream and sugar takes it up to 80—ordering Frappuccino’s and all the other crazy concoctions the calories can go up and up. If you drink 2 cups of coffee a day, learning to take it black will save you 14 pounds in a year!
