Since I'm focusing on clean eating, it was really difficult for me to find anything on the menu that was completely clean. So, I decided to ask the server if I could make my own meal instead - and it was a success! I ordered a grilled chicken breast with a side of grilled asparagus. It was inexpensive, delicious and healthy.
When everyone around you is eating off the menu, it can be difficult to do something different - either due to pressure or lack of wanting to think outside the box. This is a mental game - just keep you goals in mind, focus on the fun with your friends and remember that food is fuel. You will be successful!

As luck would have it, the restaurant offered a Foursquare special if you checked in - free french fries. And, not just any french fries. You could get:
AMERICAN FRIES: straight up with Heinz

With six workouts per week, a full-time job, our cleaning business, etc. etc. etc., I wasn't sure how I was going to fit everything in. Plus, I always have other non-fitness goals going on in my head because I can't sit still :) I have a lot I want to accomplish yet this year and I had to get organized.
I went to my favorite coffee place and sat down with my GTD binder:
- First, I scheduled all of my workouts on my personal calendar. These are appointments I cannot miss - especially if I want to be prepared for my half.
- Then, I wrote down two other things I wanted to accomplish this year, but I had to break these goals down further: 1) What is the first step I need to take to get started? 2) What is the next step after that? 3) Schedule time on my calendar to take these steps.
- Finally, I wrote down where I wanted to be at the end of the year and another item to start planning for in 2013.
I have everything organized and know the small steps I need to take every day to achieve them. I keep the plan with my personal calendar so I can look at it every day as a reminder of where I'm heading.
Also, I read a great article this morning on goal planning and this guy suggests the GTD system as well. I highly recommend it!
