Check the vlog right above this one--the video finally loaded...
Yes, you read that correctly, Iím contemplating breaking my exercise streak. Not today. Today was Day 926 and I took an hour-long walk in the park. Today was a great day to streak. No, Iím contemplating breaking my streak at Day 1,000.
If youíre late to the party, here are my streaking rules: At least ten minutes of intentional exercise (not just walking around the grocery store, or housework) every single day. My ten-minute minimum is more like 15, with most days being 20-60 minutes. Those are the basic rules. Some days are hardcore; some are pretty laid back. But Iíve kept this streak going for 926 days in a row. No lie. I really and truly have done this. I have walked, hiked, hula hooped, roller skated, lifted weights, been an elliptical warrior, swam, Zumba, and who knows what else, for 926 days in a row.
Part of me thinks it might be time to end the streak. But Iím on the fence about it. On one hand, I feel like itís almost played out; itís lost some of itsí motivating force. On the other hand, I wonder if itís doing me even more good than I realize. If you get a chance, watch the video, so you can see whatís bouncing around in my head. Maybe youíll have some input. I have 74 days to make up my mind (barring any unforeseen, streak-breaking incidents outside of my control). To streak, or not to streak--that is the question. :)
But today--WE STREAK!
Spark ON, Brave Sparkers!!
PS: Please excuse the annoying dropped frames in the video. I was trying out a new video app on my phone and it ended up being a little unreliable...
