I read an article yesterday about how nobody has a good excuse to NOT workout. Of course, someone with a medical condition would, but in general...
The article suggested getting 3 10-minute workouts in. And, that a workout doesn't have to be sweat inducing. That got me thinking. So, I cleaned the house yesterday afternoon. My "game" (b/c I HATE cleaning) was to get it done as fast as possible. Broke a little sweat and killed two birds with one stone. Workout-check. House cleaned-check.
Need to quit focusing so much on the long term goal and take every day one at a time. Small victories each morning when the scale shows a smaller number. I CAN do this.
My original workout goal was to train to run 5Ks this year. But being a self employed CPA and it is now tax season, I find excuses to not train (I use the word train because I'm on the C25K plan...W1 and holding). So, until the craziness of tax season subsides, I will start walking 10 minutes at a time when I take a potty break during work hours at least 3 times a day. Then, I will get to the C25K plan and start running 5Ks by June.
