Hi, working 10 hours a day, makes it very difficult for me to exercise. I think about it alot, but just cannot bring myself to do it when I get home or get up earlier in the mornings. I own a treadmill, wii, cds, dvds, but I still don't use them. I have learned if I buy 'bad' items at the grocery store, i will eat them. I try not to buy them. Are you having problems in a specific area or just in general?

I will do good for awhile and then I fall off the wagon. It is easy to be bad, but so so hard to be good

I have a hard time working in exercise. I did wear a pedometer for awhile, and it was interesting to see how fast you can get "extra" steps in. I'm sure you've heard the tricks of parking farther away, taking the stairs instead of the elevator (within reason). I used to have a two-story house, and I would even make myself go to the bathroom on the opposite level that I was on, just to make me do the stairs more. Silly mind games like this can add up to a lot.

And, I firmly believe that three 10 minute walks (instead of one 30 minute walk) is still much better than nothing. So, lame though it is, you can walk the perimeter of an office building, parking lot, around a block, whatever you have time for, and just do it whenever you can.

You are so right of trying to fit in whatever you can. I do park at the opposite end of our parking garage. Didn't think about going to the bathroom on another floor. I have walked all around the entire floor to get the bathroom. It is very very difficult for me to build up muscles to loose weight. thanks for the encouragement and suggestions.

I do agree that some exercise is better than none at all. Keep doing what you're doing and consult your doctor for suggestions on what it's safe for you to do. I, too, find it hard to fit it in, especially since I have energy problems. But I have to! Keep up your good work and you will eventually see good results.
