I'm almost to my goal of 365 days of exercise. I have learned a lot about myself this year. One thing I've learned is to keep going, no matter what. Baby steps really do work!
When I started the challenge, not even my doctors could tell me if exercise was good for the lingering effects of Bell's palsy and I was more or less resigned to the idea that I would have effects from the palsy for the rest of my life. Well, a year later, I'm almost completely free and I'm convinced that exercise (and time, of course) made the difference!
I've also learned that I need to be constantly vigilant about my exercise. I need Spark People to keep me going. Even though I'm almost finished with 365 days of exercise, the last few weeks have been a struggle to keep going and I would have given up and sat on my couch without Spark People and your constant reminders that it is worth it! It's vital to keep moving!
