Well, I hope I have your attention now! My favorite activity is walking in the water as if I was trying to run or ride a bicycle. I have bought a couple of water noodles and I sit on one just like on a bike and peddle around in circles or back and forth. It really works your legs and arms as you stear yourself around the pool. The water provides quite the resistance and even though you might not feel too tired in the water, when you get out of the water, you can tell the difference!

Take small baby steps to build momentum. Start off by just drinking water, the next day take a 10 min walk and drink water, the next day eat a few extra fruits and veggies, take a 10 min walk and drink water, etc.
The next thing you know you will have a new good habit.
I am watching the pounds come off with just walking each night and drinking water. I have always walked and drank water but now doing more. It really works, I have always know it so when people see me they will know it too. Have introduced drinking water and not sodas to my daughter and granddaughter, hope they see a difference. Part of my winter exercise routine is walking more, I might have to start eating more if I keep dropping the pounds. Smile
