Preparation Tips and Tricks

Get ready now to be successful later


We talk a lot about the importance of preparation at Shape Up Church, and you've probably experienced it first hand. There's nothing worse than opening the fridge and feeling like there's nothing "legal" for you to eat. Or being out and about, getting hungry, and being empty handed.

Here are a few tips and tricks to get you armed and ready for success:

  • Wake up 15 minutes earlier. 

    This is easier said than done, I know, but it will really make a difference in making sure you start the day with a good breakfast and are able to leave the house with everything you need!

  • Have a chopping "power hour."

    Wash and chop all of your vegetables to make it easy to grab a snack or throw together a salad.

  • Invest in some new to-go containers.

    Where are you going to put all those veggies you chopped? Get some new plastic or glass to-go containers - big and small - to pack up snacks and lunches for the whole week.

  • Prep some meals and freeze them.

    This requires a little more work up front, but you'll be so glad to take the guesswork out of dinnertime! Simply take out one meal each day, and it will be ready to cook when dinner time rolls around.

You may find some of these tips helpful, and some of them may not be for you. That's okay - figure out what works to keep you strong and steady in your body transformation!
