I was kidding when I said the only thing I could contribute was what NOT to do to stay healthy! I do have a few healthy habits I'm working on.
But here's what not to do: Allow yourself to sleep in late instead of getting your workout done and over with first thing in the morning--it keeps getting put off all day until you are too exhausted once the kids are finally in bed after a hectic day and you feel guilty about the dishes that didn't get done and the toys all over the floor because you were running kids all over town since the second they got home from school! Phew, breathe!
Do not: finish off your child's half eaten Airhead candy (blue, even, yuck!) that she was saving for later, just because it's sitting there on the counter and you feel the need for something sweet.
Do not: even think about looking at Facebook (if you are addicted to it like I am) until after accomplishing your workout and a couple chores. FB will suck you in and consume your whole morning if you let it (hence the workout getting put off until there was no time for it). Same goes for watching the new episode of Lost (or whatever show you love) online since you missed it last night. I guess I could have watched it while exercising, but that requires my head turned to one side while on my eliptical machine, and then my neck hurts. I should move the computer moniter!
This has been my day today. Not proud of it. I think I'll go to bed before 11:00 so I can have the energy to try again tomorrow.
