I always tell people that its far easier to add good habits into your life then to try to restrict yourself. Rather than say "I am going to stop doing this", try adding something good in. Eat more veggies, drink more water... Exercise 10 minutes... Do some squats everyday... Slowly the good will start to weed out the bad stuff....

Its no secret.... I am horrible with working out. I've been at this for over 3 years and have yet to form any exercise habits. I pretty much have the healthy diet down. Exercise is basically just staying active all day. I try to make it a point to clean my house everyday. Adding in sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming... I am constantly picking up after my husband and daughter. (Do they know where the sink or trash can is?) I also live in a tri level so I am constantly climbing stairs. Also with the new dog, I have to go on a few short walks everyday. But I would really love to get a good habit of actual exercise. Something that really takes an effort. Something that challenges me and makes me feel accomplished. I am really going to try to do squats everyday. Ive been successful with this in the past. Also I have been begging my husband for a treadmill or elliptical for literally years. I truly believe that I would use it daily or atleast a few times a week. I have shows that I like to watch and I think I'd feel so much better exercising while watching them rather than just laying in bed. I also tend to want to munch on something during this time, so exercising would pretty much make that close to impossible.

Well, we shall see. It is Mother's day weekend and I let him go to his brother's bachelor party weekend without one complaint. He's been gone since Thursday morning and won't be home until Sunday night. (The person that set the weekend up is obviously single without children. LOL) Sooo, maybe he will be a little more open to the idea... hmmm....

    I am so with you, my friend. I just posted a blog on how I've been successful with getting my healthy eating established but adding the good habit of working out seems to be lost with me. Keep up the good fight! And good luck with getting the exercise equipment you want!
