Make Your Meals Public
Meal planning is great and all, but if you don't follow through, what you wrote down in that cute notebook won't have any effect on the scale. Write it out on a big blackboard for you and everyone else to see — it makes it more likely to happen. It also forces you to be more accountable for choosing healthy meals. You wouldn't be too proud if the week's plan had a mix of pizza, cereal, and takeout.
