Hi BSHOWELL and Jossy,
I wrote a blog on what I did to get moving if you want to check it on my spark page. I wrote another blog today about starting the year 30 pounds lighter than last year.www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal.
One thing I do to get me moving is sit in front of the TV on my stability ball and work out with dumbbells and/or resistance bands. I like using them because you can get them out while you are watching TV and stay occupied with what is on TV to make the time go by faster, and then when I am done I can put them up until I am ready to exercise again.
Another thing I do is make deals with myself that I can watch TV or get computer time as long as I am moving. That works amazingly well for me.
When all else fails I like to dance to music. My favorite exercise song is Proud Mary (Rolling on the River). No wonder Tina Turner is so skinny after that work out!
You girls can do it! Hang in there, and, please, don't curl up with the chocolate, unless it is the last thing you do at night before you go to bed and it is only one 100 calorie stick of dark chocolate and then only if you can just eat one.
As for me I can't eat chocolate or I would eat the whole box of chocolates so I don't keep it in my house anymore. Instead I eat an apple when I am craving sweets or an orange, or a sugar free vanilla pudding cup, or sugar free popsicles, or sip on bottled water to which I add stevia and a flavoring (strawberry, lemon, lime, orange, pineapple, coconut and even banana) and most of the time one of those will work to get me through.
What do you guys do to keep moving and avoid eating the bad for you foods?
