I am pretty good about making excuses myself. I am too tired. I have a headache. I ate too much. Of course, deep down I know that if I exercise regularly, I would not be so tired and probably have less headaches.
When I first started SP 3 years ago, I actually walked on treadmill at home for 10-15 minutes at a time. Kids were smaller and I would walk for 10 minutes and then answer homework questions and then walk another 15 minutes, etc. I know it does not seem like a lot, but I did loose almost all my weight that I wanted to within a year. So, I guess any exercise is better than none. Unfortunately, most days, I can't even get on the treadmill, even to talk 15 minutes.
Now, I try to work when I take my lunch hour at work. I can eat at my desk while I work, so I sometimes take my lunch hour and go the mall and walk for 30 minutes. Unfortunately, that does not happen every day. I really need to go back to treadmill at night, but after cooking and cleaning and laundry, I just can't seem to get with it.
I am doing Ok with food. Over the years of counting calories, I can now tell how much of what I can eat. So, when I pack my lunch and snacks at night and in the morning, I know that I am only that I not exceeding my 1200 to 1500 per day.
I hope this helps you a little. Good luck.
It maybe too late to go back and make a new start, but it's not too late to make a new ending.
I eat to live. I don't live to eat.
