I watch what I eat and my weight by planning my meals and keeping track of what I eat and weigh. I try to do some form of workout each day as in exercises, stretches, lifting wieghts and walking or any combination of those and I also keep track of those too. I think that keeping track kind of keeps me accountable to myself to stay on my plan. This one's kind of simple but I always park as far away as I can instead of searching for a close spot, not only is it more exercise, it also helps me feel better about myself by helping those less fortunate to a close spot.

Push myself to exercise on a regular basis.  Sometimes it is not an easy thing to do.  But got to do what you got to do.

Three actually: I try to do at least one meaningful task a day like a home repair or other one time only thing - laundry or loading the dishwasher don’t count; I watch what I eat and weigh by planning my meals and tracking what I eat; and I lightly exercise every day, including a daily 60 min walk and weight lifting m-w-f at my church family center.

I allow myself one indulgence a day.  That could be a sweet such as one or two cookies or a glass of good red wine. The glass of good red wine usually wins out.  Smiley Wink

I think my healthiest habit is to ignore the latest advertising hype about what's good for a person to eat and what's not, and eat a healthy, whole foods diet.  This, of course, is in addition to exercising my body as well as my brain.

Do something  for someone else. Can't think of something simple, just draw a funny cartoon and put it on their porch.  I begin, before I begin my morning walk with a rollin' walker, with a simple little card with a funny joke or a funny face and the word SMILE on it somewhere and leave it for one of my 77 neighbors.  On special occasions, I do 77 hand drawn cards, cartoons, and leave one with a mini candy bar for each and everyone and I smile HARD! and I walk faster and longer and smile the whole way.  My whole being feels good and lucky and happy.  Some of the people don't even know who I am WHO CARES, maybe they'll smile and the cartoon or the Smiley face or just getting a piece of mail, WHO CARES, as long as they SMILE.

Two thoughts:

 

1. Play a sport.  I play tennis.  Started in my late 40s.  It works out your body, your mind, and it's very social. 

 

2. Get rid of junk food in your house. Willpower is used up over the course of a day, and by around 8 p.m., mine is gone when it comes to eating junk. Removing it enabled me to lose 15 pounds over a period of two months, and I have kept it off for two and a half years by using this healthy trick.
