I've decided to try my hand at one of the SparkPeople Challenges. Well, try my hand again anyway. So the idea behind this August challenge is that you pick one thing and you try to be consistent about it. It's supposed to be a way to get back on track which I totally need.
So I decided my consistency challenge for getting back on track will be exercise. I am going to attempt to exercise in some form each day for the month of August. Now, I know this is a little extreme because you don't have to exercise everyday to be fitter but I have a point to this. My goal is to get my body used to the concept of exercising. Mentally I will be telling myself to exercise in some way everyday. Everything from gardening to walking to at home DVD's and lawn mowing. This gets me moving a little everyday. Then when August is done and over I will ideally be ready to set up an exercise schedule that will be easier for me to follow. That's the goal anyway. And I am realistic, in that I do not expect to be 100% successful. As the blog post says, the goal is to have more on days then off. So I'll be happy if I can get a 90% success rate. Will you be joining in the Challenge?
