5% Challenge, Week 2, Day 2

Sunday, March 03, 2013

My "new" habit I am hoping to accomplish is to exercise at least 15 minutes a day. My goal is still to exercise 30 minutes 5 days a week. What makes this goal new is that I still want to do some form of activity on my off days, preferably playing with my kids, dancing, or yoga. I want those days to be something fun, outside of what I normally do. I plan to do this by enlisting support from my family, particularly my kids. God has blessed me with kids who actually listen when I start talking about health and fitness. They like when I get them involved and they are my number one cheerleaders. I'm going to tell them what I'm trying to do and let them help me come up with ways to make exercise fun so I will want to do it everyday. Also, I plan to continue enlisting the support of my Spark family. I don't know what I would do without y'all!

    That is a great goal - even though you do exercise, you are adding to it. Good for you!

    My kids are worse than a trainer! When are you going to exercise mom, you haven't done your exercise tonight, mom and on and on and on. When everyone needs to get moving (on, say, a non-baseball night), then we have a dance party. We move all of the furniture in the living room out of the way and crank up the radio on a good station and we all go crazy dancing for 30-45 minutes. I'm not sure how long my two sons (five and nine years old) will do this with me, so I try to do it as much as possible :) It's always more fun with friends and family! Good luck!
