In the past, I’ve often been an all-or-nothing kind of girl when it comes to improving my eating habits. This time around, I’ve decided to take baby steps for staying on track. With shopping list in hand, I headed to Walmart to stock up on everything I need to be successful in my quest to find great pairings for lunchtime solutions.

5 Baby Steps for Crushing Your Goals Once and For All

See, I have this thing about getting too involved in my work and forgetting to eat lunch. Before I know it, it’s 3:00 in the afternoon and I haven’t eaten lunch. I’ve found that when I skip lunch, my energy tanks and I become moody and irritable.

5 Baby Steps for Crushing Your Goals

1. Plan to Succeed.

Baby Steps for Crushing Your Goals

We’ve all heard the old saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” Planning takes time, but it’s time well spent. When I decided to stop skipping lunch, I knew I had to implement a plan to make it happen.

2. Ease into new routines.

One of my goals is to get more steps in on a daily basis. Walking is my favorite exercise. It would be foolish to try and run 5 miles on my first day exercising. I ease into a routine by getting more steps today than I did yesterday.

3. Stop sabotaging yourself.

I’ve made so many excuses for skipping lunch in the past. I don’t have time to fix a midday meal. There’s nothing in the pantry. Those days are over. No more excuses.

Baby Steps for Crushing It

While shopping at Walmart, I looked for lunch solutions that taste good and are easy to make. I found just what I was looking for on the endcap of the soup aisle.

Campbell’s Well Yes!™ Soup is a new product and comes in a variety of flavors that immediately caught my eye. Tomato Carrot Bisque contains a touch of cream and is vegetarian (2 cups vegetables). Black Bean with Red Quinoa contains tomatoes, corn & red peppers; 3/4 cup veggies and no preservatives. Hearty Lentil with Vegetables contains chickpeas and roasted garlic, 3/4 cups vegetables and no preservatives. All of the cans have non-BPA lining. These soups are right up my alley!

Baby Steps to Crushing Your Goals

I’m excited about trying all the new flavors of Campbell’s Well Yes!™ Soups. Pairing these soups with a salad or sandwich is the perfect lunchtime solution for me and I now look forward to taking a midday break. Each can of soup has two servings – one for today and one for tomorrow.

Baby Steps to Crushing Your Goals

Helpful Hint: Be on the lookout for a Well Yes!™ coupon available in Sunday papers on 3/12! Also, check out the in-store demos at select nationwide Walmart stores 2/16 – 2/19. Please note that demos are at the store’s discretion.

4. Focus on Fewer Goals.

Baby Steps for Crushing Your Goals

I don’t know about you, but I get overwhelmed when I have too many goals to focus on. That’s why I only have two main goals this year for myself – stop skipping lunch and walk more. I have a few business goals, but as far as improving myself, I only have two. It’s much easier than having two pages full of goals.

5. Don’t beat yourself up if you fail.

Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep trying. We only truly fail when we decide to stop trying. When you set realistic goals, ease into the new goals, and plan to succeed, you’re well on your way to crushing it!

Now that I’ve stopped skipping meals and am enjoying lunch on a daily basis, I have more energy and my creative juices are flowing. I’m crushing my goals with baby steps! How about you? Have you set any new goals?

These are all super important to remember. I am one of those people that beats myself up if I have a slip up and I need to remember not to.

This reminds me of the mantra that I always keep in mind “Do the first things first”

Thank you for this timely reminder!

Yesterday was my first day of ‘doing better’ with exercise! I was in pain last night! I rarely skip lunch but what I do is ruin my supper because I get busy and eat lunch too late when I’m starving. I have a can of this soup in my pantry and now I think it will be my lunch today!
Happy Valentines Day!

Yes, don’t beat yourself up if you fail rings true. When failing, it gives you an opportunity to learn from that experience and continue forward with that knowledge.

I think easing into routines is the easiest way for me to accomplish goals. I like to go on a week-by-week basis to get into the habit of things.

These are great tips. I think it’s important to really ease yourself into your new lifestyle and to make sure you set forth goals that you can accomplish.

Soup is so easy to have around. No more skipping lunch excuses. I just bought a bunch of these myself and I’ve even been giving a thermos of soup to my kids as part of their lunch. #client

It really is important to plan your meals if you want to eat healthy. Whenever I skip lunch I tend to snack before and after dinner and they usually are not good food choices.

Great ideas and so what if you fall off. Start again and learn why a step back was taken. Continue on your journey.

This is a great reminder. Being diabetic, I have to have 6 small meals a day to keep my blood sugar level from fluctuating. However, I find it hard to comply with this and I end up having 3 large meals and a blood sugar level spike. I think those Campbells soups would sustain me and help me to eat regularly. I will have to stock up on those. The Hearty Lentil and Vegetable Soup sounds delicious!

Great suggestions and advice! Beating yourself up is top priority with a lot of folks. I believe you have to do the best and be the best you can be, but don’t give trying to be better than yesterday!

It’s definitely important not to beat yourself up. It can be hard to get back on the wagon once you have fallen off.

I agree with the less is more approach to reaching your goals. Breaking them down makes them achievable and that feels good.
