This covers a lot of topics and breaks down a lot of big tasks that can take a lot of time into manageable pieces. For example, if you cannot take an hour or more to exercise, do it in ten minute pieces throughout your day. The same goes for time at SP, check in and read or write a bit at a time.

MORE INFORMATION:
We build healthy habits this way-by creating streaks. We certainly focus on our weight loss goals this way as well--losing 1-2 pounds a week is the healthy way to go. It works for our day to day chores and is a good way to organize ourselves.

    Yes small amounts add up and I have even found myself going for a walk during a phone call or just when I want to eat something. I try to drag others into the fray.
Does any one else have a problem exercising when sick. I just have had a lot of allergies and been sneezing and coughing. So the last three days I have been walking slower and napping. Keep up the encouragement and let me know about exercising when Ill.

    Being a working mother, my life can be hectic and I have learned to do things this way out of necessity. It is wonderful that for everything important, I can reach my goals this way.

Leave encouragement, a question, or anything else relevant to this. All comments must abide by SparkPeople's Community Guidelines.
