Move Every Day Update

 One week of December has come and gone! Holy cow!

I thought I would write a little update on how I'm doing on my effort to do some exercise every day.  So far, so good, although I haven't done any running and that disappoints me.  But I'm the only one responsible for that, so I guess I will have to change that.  I only missed one day so far. I was at my parents' house Saturday and forgot about my pledge.  But, on Sunday I did 200 squats and 125+ ab exercises to make up for it!  I paid for that effort the next day at Boot Camp when our instructor decided to emphasize legs.  Ouch.

Yesterday I did not go to the gym because I stayed out too late Monday night.  I was at a cookie exchange and we made bows and I made five of them, which is worth noting only because I sat down saying I would have no idea how to do it.  So I was lazy in the morning yesterday.  But last night I browsed the exercise offerings OnDemand and the big girls and I did a 10 minute hip-hop routine (silly!) and a 20 minute walking video.  TMS was wiped out at 8 minutes of walking but soldiered on until the end. It was fun to do it with the girls and I am hopeful that we'll all be moving more often. 

I am not weighing myself until the end of the month. I don't want to focus on a number or get discouraged.  I am trying to be more mindful of my food, but not obsessively so.   I definitely want to get back to where I was pre-baby and I think (hope) I am finally at the right mental commitment level. 

How about the rest of you?

    Good Job!!! I am just trying to work out at least twice a week. So far, not doing so good. I am proud of you! Maybe, I ought to kids the kids involved, it might make me more accountable for my working out. Thanks for the idea.

  2. I never signed up for anything, for the record. haha. Yesterday my coworker and I did our 1-mile "walking" DVD (very lo-impact aerobics). My hiking plan was good for 2 weeks and then it got SO COLD here! Which is no excuse but that's what I've been going with.

    Basically I need a Refresh button for my fitness goals.


I'm dying to know what you have to say, so talk already! Thanks!
