BEST... It sounds like you've got the whole program laid out perfectly. There are going to be times when it's more challenging or difficult and that's where you look back to where you started...read this post, remind yourself often and continue on your path.

There is so much truth in what you've pointed out, and some of us need to be more aware of that, thanks for the reminder.

And keep posting and letting us all know how you're doing...

Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

The Things I have learned mirror what SP teaches.
1- set goals ( for me this was writting it down and joining a challenge group)
2- start small and focused.
10 min of exercise to start allowed me to feel better without feeling pain and worn out.
Before I tried to do it all, this time I focused on nutrition and what used to be my biggest failing - exercise.
3- I learned the body craves what you give it regularly. Give it junk food and it just craves more. Now my body craves water and non-processed foods. Once I got off the junk its amazing how readily I recognize how crummy I feel when I "treat" myself to an old favorite food. My body and my mind feel like they are struggling to move through molasses.
4 - a lot of it seems to be about being mindful of of how I feel in relationship to what I do and eat. Makes it much easier to make decisions about food and exercise when the focus is on how I will AFTER I eat X or do Y rather than how I feel WHILE I am eating cheescake or walking on the treadmill.
5 by paying attention to how I feel while exercising I can guage when its time to amp things up a bit. I live in very hot Arizona, so I use a treadmill. I like to exercise in the morning now so the post- energy boost helps me all day long. To make thing fresh and amp up the challenge, I increase my speed, do arm pumps with weights, knee march, use the incline, I vary the speed during a walk or switch it up and do some stability ball videos from the SP bank. I have also started doing a second 10 min walk in the evenings now.
