HaHa!  I drink a plant based nutrition product that helps me with both.  Although I still enjoy chocolate, it's no longer an obsession and a little bit satisfies me.

A habit I have fallen out of, and would like to resume, is creating a "to-do" list each week. This helps me see at a glance when I have room in my days to actually schedule things like exercise class or a massage. I'm much more likely to follow through when it's scheduled for me there in black and white, and not just a vague idea anymore!

It is important for me to have goals each day, and to review them each day. That way, I am able to see progress in my life. Or see that I am not following through with doing what it takes to reach those goals. It’s about accountability.

After Ash Wed service last night, I put on my heart to not 'give up something',  but I wrote down a goal and that is 'intentional exercise' for the next 40 days (and I pray for going beyond 40 days!).  Like many have responded, it is just getting up and moving (hmm?!?).  So I'm telling myself (+ I encourage others) - don't beat yourself up because you arent exercising 30 mins every day!   Baby steps, literally taking steps , walking, stairway, walk with weights (milk jug or can from the pantry!) and start w/ 10 mins --  as you look at things in your home, what can you do for bending? stretching?  weights?  move your arms and legs.   On TV commercials - tell yourself to get up out of the chair and "move".  Each minute counts towards your goal.    Ok, now I just have to"DO IT" -- you can do it too!

How about making some extra money by helping people?  I can show you what I do if you're open to looking.

Good for you!  I have a recipe for "Quit Sticks" using clinical-grade essential oils.  You put an infused toothpick in your mouth when you feel the craving to smoke.  It will help you kick this unhealthy habit.

I find it hard to just get started.  Money is very tight right now, so joining a gym is out of the question.  I decided to use my lenten obligation to help me get started.  My promise to God will give me the motivation I need

The one habit I would like/love to adopt is getting up off my duff every hour and take the three minute walk around the floor my office is on. I'm here five days a week from 8 to 5:30 most times until 6. That adds p to 27 or 30 minutes. WALKING!

I was doing yoga 2 days a week and disrupted it by moving.  Haven't gotten back into it yet due to living  

space but hope to be able to resume within a month.

Focusing more on my health in the form of exercise is is so important.  Walking is very enjoyable and relaxing to me, and yoga gives me physical and mental strength.  It's much easier to feel good when these 2 rituals are practiced.  WALKING and YOGA, here I come.
