We all know that planning is a great tool when embarking on a healthy lifestyle, it helps us to keep on track, and can help make doing all those things we are supposed to do a little easier. It's when we get tired, don't plan or find life getting in the way that our planning can fall away and sometimes we do to.
But there are things we can plan for, for when our plans fail us. That's a mouthful or an oxymoron, but it's true, we can be prepared for the unexpected. A little research can turn a nightmare situation into an opportunity to enjoy ourselves but not ruin our efforts.
There's a lot of too and for arguements against fast food and "healthy" fast food options as to whether they really are the better options, all I can say is do a little research for yourself, have a stock pile of options that YOU know will work for you and your goals so when you find yourself with no other choice, well we all know that in reality there is always a choice! ;) These still might be considered as sometimes foods in Elmo's world, and yours, but you don't have to pick the greasiest, fattiest sometimes food, that leaves you feeling like crap or worse still hungry afterwards!
