Going slowly in the beginning is working for me. Using a program of walking daily I'm doing something good for myself and developing what I hope is a lifetime habit. I like to think I'm building a solid foundation.
With the right music or TV show exercise isn't at all boring and the rush I feel when I'm done is worth it to me to get on the treadmill even when I don't really want to.
I have discovered I really love to exercise and after 1 week of working out every day I actually look forward to my next workout. It's time for me to spend doing something good for myself.
Mind over Matter...or refrigerator...or cookie....or candy...or sweet
When I have a craving that I know it's not a healthy choice for me, I stop and mentally (or sometimes verbally) remind myself that I have control over my choices. My mind is stronger than the craving and I can walk away.
I can then choose to occupy myself doing something and before I know it I no longer have the craving!
