Secrets of Success

Do Not Be Your Own Worst Enemy!



It is very easy when you have kids to have reasons to not work out. I have learned this the hard way and it was not fun. I have learned that you cannot let you talk yourself out of exercise! I would always say "oh I am not gonna walk today I played with the kids for 2 hours" but playing with the kids involved sitting on the floor with barbies. so needless to say I didnt walk much at all. I had to learn to not talk myself into it cause that sounds pathetic but to not let ME talk myself out emoticon

  • Hi I am new to sparkpeople, and my biggest concern is exercise. Being a mom of two with a job that takes me away from home 12 hours 5x a week is very hard. I do use the excuse there is no time and I need to spend time with my kids. I really do want to work out but I just don't know how to start! - by JUSTDIVINE17
