No sedentary is not my middle name. Maybe just a nickname.
I am not a person who likes to exercise just for exercise sake. I do like walking, but most other activities have to be purpose driven. Mowing the lawn. Chopping wood. Shoveling snow.
So as I plan to go forward in this Spark restart, I need to establish and stick to some routines of chores, so that I can be sure to keep active. I did mow lawn this weekend, but otherwise I took a rest from the physical activities, and although that was very restful, I know I'm not at the point where I can sit back and do nothing. It's another list I need to draw up, so that I can get some activity in every day. There's plenty to do around the house and yard, and even 30 minutes of work is better than none. I think the sticking point comes when I get overwhelmed byt a chore that could take all day, or one that seems futile to pull out the gear for if I'm only going to spend 30-60 minutes on it.
So my goal for the week is to get a list in place, and and get moving! Watch this space!
