Default Daily Exercise

I walked this morning (for about 30 min), and I'm so proud of myself. I needed to. Emotionally, it makes me feel so much better, and physically good too. My goal: to exercise at least 30 min Mon-Fri.

Thumbs up Re: Daily Exercise

Hope your walking routine is still going...I walk everyday and it was tough as first but gets easier with time. You can do it!

Thanks Hopingtrying, motivation is hard. It's still my goal though

I identify with the motivation thing, today I changed into my gym kit before leaving house (normally change at the gym) so there was no going back. Maybe if you get your walking gear on it might have same encouraging effect?

Hi Prefab, that's a good idea and one I've heard before too. I've also heard of sleeping in your workout clothes so when you wake up it's easier.

Today I left for the gym, and forgot my iPod. I didn't want to go back (long story), so I drove to a nearby neighborhood, and just walked because it was nice out.

I'd like to clarify what I mean by exercise. I walk, and I do the gym thing - mainly classes but sometimes I do the machines. So, there's my clarification.

Thanks for the support

Oh hey Prefab! I just saw this. It's going ok, which ain't bad! I forced myself to go to Zumba at the gym today after not being there for 2 weeks. It was rough. But my goal is to go more often. I have been walking.

My goal for today is to go to the gym, my new gym, and exercise. Just do anything for ten minutes because I took a break for my move.

How did it go starrysky? What do you like best in the gym?

I like the eliptical, cross ramp and bikes.
