I got kind of lost in all of the information out there about losing weight so I made a calendar on my phone that alerts me when it's time to eat, cook, workout etc. These times corrospond with appointments and my work schedule so I'm able to "make an appointment" to work out and only eat when my calendar tells me it's time to!

I really enjoy the custom workout option in this game, it has dancing, boxing, running and more. One thing I don't like is that it makes you schedule your workouts. I'm good for saying I'll work out say 5 days a week and then doing it, but not at picking which days ahead of time.
Schedule your weekly exercise routine and consider it an appointment. With 3 kids and a full time job, my biggest excuse was always "No Time". Scheduling exercise helped me plan my weekly routine and hold myself accountable.
This works especially well when you schedule your exercise appointment with a friend or enroll in a scheduled class.
* I use a treadmill and an elliptical machine, and these get boring. So, I made workout schedule that goes like this: January- week 1 of 4: Mon- 60 min treadmill @ 3 mph (with incline) Tues- 30 min elliptical @ 4mh; 30 min SP videos (abs) Wed- 3 x 10 min elliptical @ 5mph; 30 min SP videos (arms) Thurs- 4 x 15 min treadmill @ (4mph with no incline) Fri- 60 bike ride/ or push stroller, around neighborhood Sat- OFF Sun- OFF At the end of each week I assess my progress and make adjustments.
