I really love when I finally get myself out of the house to go for a jog/walk. Itís so peaceful and quiet, and you donít need to think about anything. Just makes me love going for a jog outside and getting some fresh air.
I had so much trouble getting myself to workout because I couldn't find time. Now I eat my lunch for about 30 min and then walk the other 30 min. I keep spare shoes, socks and headphones in the office so I can't forget them!
I used to be a soda addict. Now, I prefer fresh juices and smoothies to anything else! They are so much healthier, frutier, and don't have any of the nasty sugar and acid from soda. I used to go to vending machines all the time, but now, I take it in insulated water bottles(that keep my smoothie COLD and don't even sweat on humid days!). They are the perfect size to carry around, and fit nicely in a backpack or purse(for the ladies)

I pack my exercise clothes the night before.
My DH has Type 2 Diabetes and needs to get healthy. I invite him to play tennis with me so I can get in my exercise minutes. He hardly ever turns me down. I asked him if he would run a 5k with me. We went out tonight and ran 1.70 miles to train for it. It's sneaky, but it works for me and him!
every time i start to diet it fail, until one day my religion doing fasting, i can manage my diet. i fast for a month, eat 3.30 am and break the fast at 6pm. i try to feel my body, when im full, i will not eat again. the fasting is helping because it made me feel full easily, when eating. after a month fasting i lose 2 kg, its not much, but the habit of my eating stay, it help me to continue my diet. now about a month later i lost 1 kg again, it feel long, but i enjoy,cus just eat when hungry.
