I tried scheduling appts and that dont work. but what is working better is having a chart to put exercise on and have a trainer sign I did the exercise. If I do something at home I can put on it too. No fibing allowed.
The chart has type of exercise how long calories burned I even post weigh in on it oh and a spot for siguatures.

I check off what I have done on my chart on my wall everyday and have an end of day journal that I write in so I can see how much I have accomplished. I have a 6 month chart, that has symbols, a weight chart that goes from week to week, and a measurement chart I do one a month, each ending in 6 month. And anytime I feel low, or like giving up, I just look at what have done, and how far I have come.
Most americans have a sodium intake way above the charts
did you know that the RDA (recommended daily allowance) for sodium is 2500 mg per day? This is equal to ONE TEASPOON of table salt. Most Americans get anywhere from 2500 to 7500 mg per day. This is at fault for problems like high blood pressure, heart problems, and more. Watch your salt intake24
I like logging my food and exercise. I also like checking out the charts that mark my progress. I enjoy this because I have positive progress to look at. So cool. In order to enjoy the charts I have to eat right/healthy and exercise. I have only been at this for a week and have lost weight already, 4.1 pounds, which is motivating in itself.
