Welcome to Spark People ! I give all new members one piece of advice and it's this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did for yourself oday was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction. Every little bit really does make a differece. Remember, you're trying to change habits learned over a life time. that's not going to happen overnight, a week, a month or even a year. Change takes time, thus the need to be patient with yourself and your body.
Start with some simple changes first. don't try to do everything at once or you will end up frustrated. Example, if you're not eating 6-9 servings of fresh fruit and veggies, set a goal to eat 2-3 servings each day for one week. if you're not drinking 8 glasses of water, set a goal to drink 2-4 glasses each day for one week. If you have an injury and have difficulty walking, then sit in a chair and do some upper body strength exercises for 10-15 minutes. Once you'e achieved these goals, then you set new ones.
And that's how good health starts. One small change can change your life !!
As far as that inury, if you can't stand for long periods of time, then do some cardiovascular upper body workouts while sitting in a chair. Coach Nicole has a short chair workout posted in the fitness section. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos-detail
Take baby steps literally and figuratively.
