Weeks 1 to 12

Exercise 30 minutes a day

Guidelines:
We don't need no stinkin' gyms to exercise. Do anything that gets your heart pumping. I turn on the radio and dance like a maniac. Hopefully, I'll never have a peeping Tom or he'll think I'm having a fit!

Weeks 1 to 12

Be kind to ourselves

Guidelines:
More than likely we've all yo-yo'ed up and down with our weight and beat ourselves up with every pound we gained over and over again. No more of that! If we stumble every now and then, don't get discouraged, just back in the saddle.
