Walking is great, but I agree that it can get boring. Can you turn it into a job by being a dog walker at the same time? Do you know anyone who would like to partner with you in walking? (It's always less boring if you have a friend to walk with.) Is there an indoor pool anywhere near you? That is great exercise and it breaks things up a little if you could do that once or twice a week instead of walking. Finally, have you ever played DDR? That is killer exercise and not nearly as boring.

As far as your food plan, one hint is to make yourself snacks ahead of time - cut up fresh fruit, have grilled chicken and salad fixings ready to go in the fridge, healthy things that you have already done the prep work for so that you can satisfy sudden cravings without blowing your whole meal plan for the day.

Well the only problem with that is there isn't really anyone that would walk or exercise with me on a daily basis, so as I have heard ddr might be a nice alternative. This would be especially good as I have exams and SAT's =( coming up; it's hard to find time to do other things but study and of course, go to school

That hint is one that I plan on doing once I can figure out a nice weekly meal plan. thanks
