Ok, I am now to a point where I am not sleeping well again and I know it is directly related to the amount of exercise I am getting, that would be none. Why have I fallen off of that wonderful thing I had going for me? I thought/hoped I was building that great habbit, but I guess it didnt work because I slipped, and rather comfortably, right back into old habbits. How long do I have to do this for it to become a habbit? I was doing well and I was working out for 6 months so why did it not change the way I think and feel?

    For each of us I think setting something as a "habit" takes different lengths of time. I've been eating better and different now for a year - and finally feel like it's become second-nature to read labels and wait before choosing. Even though sometimes I slip and just grab something w/o considering the consquences. With food though I feel that 80-90 percent of the time I am making good choices. On exercise, I do better because this is my strong area. If I can exercise 5x through the week I feel good about that week. Making exercise planned as soon as you get up, and part of your every day experience will help make it more of a habit. If you have to set aside your activities to do it, or it's shuffled to the end of the day it's much harder to get it set as a habit.

    I know it's a struggle right now to exercise. Instead of trying to go full swing into what you were doing, try walking for 15 min. I didn't get any in today. Yesterday I swam laps for 10 min. I figure it's better than nothing. Maybe the weather has something to do with it...why we don't want to exercise.
