I do a short burst of light cardio to wake myself up in the morning , a few sun salutations when I'm stressed, a walk with my dog when I need some quiet time, and yoga to help my insomnia. Exercise is now inevitable part of my routine.
For women, increase your protein intake to 75 - 100 grams a day to break thru a plateau. I was eating in the low 60's and had been at a plateau for 2 months. I increased my protein intake to this level and started losing again.
I was setting 2 month weight loss goals, but everytime as I neared the goal, the system aimed me toward maintenance and weightloss stopped. Once I changed over to my long term weight loss goal, that stopped. So be sure your settings are correct, because the system definitely works to maintain once you reach your goal!!
When you catch yourself saying I can't exercise, or I can't pass up a chocolate doughnut, change it up to "I Won't." By saying "I won't" do something instead of "I can't" forces you to hold yourself accountable! "I can't" gives you an excuse; "I won't" says I am responsible for my own actions.
