When I track my food daily and stay in the budget; I also take a few minutes end of day to track out the 'next day'. This keeps me positive w/ my food, my choices, and I plan a weekly menu as well ..........It all helps to be organized and stay on track day to day! It is worth the ti...
I keep a waist twisting disk in the living room. I twist on it everytime I get up to get a snack, during every commercial, or at the end of every row on the scarf I'm crocheting, etc. Slides under the couch when company comes. I keep a mini trampoline in the next room. I walk on it every time I pas...
I always jump into things with two feet. But going too fast has only brought me injuries. I'm learning to set more long term goals and realizing that 2 or 3 months of exercise after years of inactivity do not make me an athlete ..yet.
I do not like to exercise. Walking, running, spinning, swimming, etc. bores me to death. I have found out that "dancing" (If you can call what I do dancing) with Wii's Just Dance gives a great work out (if I choose fast paced songs) and I enjoy it.
I am keeping the follwing four A's in mind: Avoid, Alter, Accept and Adapt. Whenever I feel my head is ready to pop from stress i'm going to look at the root cause and determine which one of the 4 A's can be applied.
Exercise is the key to feeling great. We all know that, but some days, we just don't feel motivated to move AT ALL. My trick, on those days, is to do at least the warm-up portion of the DVD, walking/running program, etc. Stop after that if you want, but I bet you won't!!
When I get home from work - I cannot sit down. Once I sit down I am done and don't want to get up and move. So I get my exercising (and house cleaning) done ASAP when getting home.
I bought myself a Wii fit, and the EA sport active game to go with it. I love it. I can burn over 200 calories while my baby sleeps, without even leaving my house. And it's fun!
I eat or drink several healthy chocolate products daily which has been shown (and I sure see it in my life) to maximize the body's immune system, energy level and overall feeling of wellness.
Always get your exercise in first thing in the morning - Why? If you don't there are always other things that will become a priority - giving you excuses not to exercise - Exercising first things frees up the day for the rest of life to happen. JUST DO IT!!!
