Thank you, Lisa. I will do it.

Posting in the exercise forum has had a tremendous positive effect. The number one thing I have a problem with is consistency. I'm working on small but doable steps with exercise. At this point, I'm working on just getting out the door every day for a walk/run (1, 2, 3 miles, depending).

This one little step has started the ball rolling towards more healthful habits. Choosing better foods is what my daughter and I are working on.

I was too intimidated to start a food journal online. It's so...public. And I didn't want to be humiliated if I failed.

You're right about reframing how I define the word "routine" because it just means consistent behavior. One can have an exciting routine (although in the past, it was an oxymoron to me!)
