I’m sure you all remember the A-Team, no?


If not the original, the film was only out a few years ago.


The TV show was kinda the same every week, wasn’t it?


Murdoch is busted out of some sort of ‘mental hospital’.


B.A. refuses to fly (“I ain’t gettin on no plane”) but is somehow rendered unconscious and flown away.


Face chats up some attractive ladies.


And, of course, all four get imprisoned in some sort of well equipped garage where Hannibal formulates a plan that leads to their escape and victory against the bad guys.


The episode often ends with Hannibal lighting one of his trademark Havanna cigars and uttering his catchphrase “I love it when a plan comes together.”




If it’s good enough for The A-Team it’s good enough for us, yeah?


One of the principle reason people struggle is a lack of planning.


I once heard the ‘6Ps’ expression adapted to ‘Proper Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Appearance’.


It was ‘Performance’ at the end before if you haven’t heard it.


If you have a plan for what you’re going to get when you go shopping, I’m sure it will, overall be healthier than if you don’t.


If you have a plan for how you’ll deal with people trying to make you eat cake, biscuits, etc at work then you’re more likely to not have it, agreed?


If you plan your meals (breakfasts and lunches particularly) than you’re less likely to be rushed and have no brekkie or some rubbishy cereal and then a panini or similar a few hours later, aren’t you?


If you plan your workouts, scheduling them in your diary and working other commitments around them, then your much more likely to make it than if you vaguely think “I’ll try and fit one in at some point.”


You get the idea.


Planning is key.


Good planning can actually make a healthy lifestyle much easier than the old, unhealthy one its replacing.


It’s just needs to be done.



Much love,


Jon ‘Howling Mad’ Hall and Matt ‘Bad Attitude’ Nicholson
