    Don't be frazzled that will often lead to you going off track, trust me I have done the same in my first week of SP.

    Personally, I won't worry about where to start because in Stage 2 of the diet stages you have 6 weeks and each week they help you learn a different thing to help you.

    SP don't want to hand you everything at once, so why should you worry about where to start? Break it down into small pieces like SP does:

    Fast Break (Stage 1) is more about getting used to SP, the tracking tools and making a few friends to help you along the journey.

    So here are a few things you might want to cover:

    1. Are you tracking everything you eat/drink in the nutrition tracker?
    2. Are you tracking your cardio workouts, walks, jogs and strength-training?
    3. Have you found a good handful (or more) of buddies that can help you along the journey?

    Tips for Stage 1:

    1) Don't worry too much about going over or under the ranges - These two weeks are to help you understand more about what you are eating, your current diet and areas of improvement fot Stage 2.

    2) Try a variety of exercises to find something you can enjoy and work on from there. Even 10 mins can be enough to get the heart rate pumping.

    Do you enjoy walking? How about traing to walk 5K? Then you could go from walking 5K to Jogging 5K to running 5K - You may want to train to run 10K or half-marathons etc.

    3) Remember - You need to learn to walk before you can run, so taking baby steps towards a lifestyle change is 100% normal. I can't think of anyone who suddenly wakes up the next day eating 100% correctly, exercising everyday they burn 3,500 calories or more a week - It just doesn't happen, unfortunatly.

    We all must take small steps to begin, so don't get frazzled - Note where you need to add or alter a daily part of your routine, so you can make room for some exercising.
