Go Take a Hike....

Go take a hike, learn to jog, do a video, walk the dog, dance like no one is watching, be a spaz, learn to fidget... all things I know I should be doing but lack the motivation to do. How is it that I have the eating thing down but I am lacking the motivation to move?!

This week I am making the commitment to get out and move! That means that I pledge to you that I will do some sort of additional exercise this week for 30 minutes everyday! Yes, I said everyday. And, I will update this blog post each day with what activity I chose to do and how it made me feel.

  • Tuesday October 8th: Today I walked to pick up our Jeep from the mechanic and also spent two hours enthusiastically cleaning the house. After dinner David and I went for a walk through our neighborhood. All in all I'm counting about an hour worth of exercise today. I'm feeling more motivated today. I hope this motivation lasts, and shortly turns into a habit.
  • Wednesday October 9th: What a freaking hectic day! I worked 9 hours with no lunch break then, went to my tax class until 9. After class I came home, fed David and then.... we went for a walk! Yep! I still managed to get in my 30 minutes. I would have liked to have done more but I'm burned for the day! Off to bed with me!
  • Thursday October 10th: I didn't really go out and do much after work today, I was drained. I did however stand in the kitchen cooking and cleaning for about 3hrs (I need more crock pot meals). And, it was pouring cold rain. That being said, I don't think it counted as exercise. Oh well, I'll do better tomorrow!
  • Friday October 11th: When I got home from work today my husband was napping so I went back out and took my walk. Felt great to get it done early and have the rest of the evening to relax!
  • Saturday October 12th: Sick... that's me today. Not the I feel kind of icky but the... I can't move and want to lay here kind of sick. Just my luck! Rest and sleep for me.
  • Sunday October 13th: Ok this is going to have to be repeated... still sick and feeling AWFUL! Sleep and rest again today.
  • Monday October 14h: I Leave this challenge with a promise to do this again.... when I am feeling better!
