There will be days when you are too stressed or too tired to stay on schedule. Have a Plan B when these days come. For example, instead of sweating an hour at the gym, work out only your abs or walk on a treadmill for half an hour. Any body movement is beneficial. Anticipate the problems so you know how to handle them when they arise in order to stay on track with your bigger plan.
