We are stronger in a group. I know I walk furter than I think I can when I go with someone else. I won't call uncle at the first twinge when I am not alone. Its better for me and my lazy dog when we walk and play with others where others can see us and we can see them - we don't dawdle as often.
This is day six of abstinence for me . I am not going to keep track of the days forever .. I have heard that it takes 6 weeks to create a new habit so that is 42 days I am going to do it for 84 day so I am sure that recording food and daily exercise is really a habit
If you're too lazy to write it down, you should be too lazy to eat it too!
Sometimes I find myself eating lots of small things idlely, but then I realize how much work that's going to take to put it all in the nutrition tracker later. Might as well save myself the time and the calories by not eating it.30
I walk my dogs every morning, barring any really bad weather (raining hard or extremely cold). They motivate me because they won't give me many opportunities to make excuses. I get a minimum 20 minute walk at least once a day. AND, if I am walking both of them, I get some arm exercise trying to keep Kirby from chasing cats/squirrels/rabbits/deer, and Ziggy from getting too close to other dogs that she is barking at. 246
