I'm a full time college student with a full time job, it's easy to get too busy to fit in exercise. On days when I don't have much time I go to my school's track and walk during my break. It's not hardcore cardio, but every little bit counts (:
Doing this everyday helps me stay happy about my exercise routine and it loosens my muscles up. It makes me feel fresh (:

Quaker Oats- Oat So Simple. Does what it says on the tin basically. It's great for breakfast, snack or quick lunch. Its very easy to make as you only need to add water. The golden syrup flavoured one is very tasty and only has 190 calories. The original one is also very good and has a perfect creamy porridge texture. I like to have one of these in the morning for breakfast as it keeps me feeling full throughout the day and makes me eat less at lunch. Its very quick and easy, with no mess.
Perfect for when you're in a rush, and you still get meals fitted into a busy schedule :)
For weight loss using the Spark tools for recipes, the recipe calculator, and then being able to track anything and everything that went into my mouth helped me develop an entirely new lifestyle so that I did not think of dieting but I wanted what was healthier! It was also a help to know that because of my work schedule that I could make Spark work within my busy schedule! However, when I retired the whole website, team and friends were there for me to continue learning!
Including my WW loss and my Spark loss I have gone from 183 to 121-123 and maintained for 65 weeks! Now I am involved in motivation and fitness FOR ME! Funny, I wanted to do fitness for the first time in my life!
