Take one day at a time. It isn't so difficult if you are determined to just stay on track with nutrition and drinking water, and exercise for just one day. It doesn't matter what happened yesterday or last. Just one step at a time.
I joined Spark in 2008 and lost over a hundred lbs in weight...
Never take the escalator or lift, I always walk.
In the spring, summer and autumn I love being in the fresh air and working hard in the garden. It's good exercise but so exciting to see the flowers and freggies grow and thrive.
I almost never eat white bread, white pasta or rice and prefer whole grains. A bit more difficult is eating the occasional cakes as they are generally made with white flour.
Getting a pedometer is the best incentive to exercise, and my fitbit which I invested in after Christmas has been brilliant as it syncs to my Spark account and my fitbit account shows me how much I have done each day, week and month, and gives me a daily nutrition guidance.
I find getting my exercise in early in the day helps to get it done if I am very busy, get up every hour to walk about and also make a point of climbing the stairs to go to the bathroom rather than use the one on the same floor.
