Weight Management - Getting to a Healthy Weight: Lifestyle Changes
4. Prepare for slip-ups
Here's one person's list of barriers to taking a brisk 30-minute walk every day, along with some possible solutions:
I might be too busy.
- My backup plan will be to break my
usual 30-minute walk into two 15-minute walks or three 10-minute walks.
I might get bored.
- I'll listen to music or a podcast
while I walk.
- I'll get my neighbor to walk with me.
It might rain.
- My backup plan will be to use an
exercise DVD or a treadmill in front of my TV when the weather's bad.
5. Get support
You can use a personal action plan(What is a PDF document?) to write down your goals and organize your support system.
