I love exercise or physical activity. As a life long couch potato nothing makes me happier than to get out and work my body! I usually have a pretty set schedule.

Mon 1 hour of Zumba
Tue 1 hour of waling with a friend
Wed and Friday 1 hour of biking
Thurs 1 hour of Zumba with a friend
Sat 1 hour hike in the mountains near our cabin
Sun rest!

I do upper body strength training on Mon and Th
Lower body ST on Tue and Fri

However, 2 weeks ago I broke a couple of ribs after falling over our Golden Retriever whom I didn't see in the dark. Just this week I started walking for 10, 15 and then 30 minutes. I really look forward to getting back to my regular schedule!

I always have time for exercise!

Exercise Plan
Walk Walk Yoga Walk Walk Walk

I love to exercise but walking is so simple. I've decided to keep it simple this month with regular walking 5 days a week 2-5 miles. Fall weather is dry, a bit warm and beautiful. Trying to reboot and move into weightloss is somewhat stressful and I would rather pour my energy into sticking to healthy nutrition, tracking, staying mindful...too much focus is draining for me sometimes so walking it is for October!

A decision made about how much to weigh is a decision made on how to live. (KANOE) I have decided.

Day 9 - Select an Exercise Plan

I have put a lot of time into my exercise plan. I love exercising. I plan ahead, I have all my workouts for the month planned. Plus I am on a team where we post our planned workouts at the beginning of the week and report our completed workouts at the end of the week. Our leader gives us a gold medal goodie for all workouts done, a silver for more than half, and a bronze if we do at least one. I find this weekly accountability hugely motivating. I also track my daily steps, stairs and exercise minutes with another team and have running, rowing, swimming and strength training programs. I train by seasons so different sports have different intensities and rest periods according to the seasons. And I love hiking.

Even though weight loss, if that is the main goal, is more dependent on what we eat than how much we exercise, in my case, exercising is something I do more easily than being under my calorie limits daily.

I am more organized with my exercise plan than I am with my diet plan.

For October 9 - 15

Planned workouts 2 runs, 3 walk/hikes, 3 stretches, 2 ST workouts - 10 workouts

S 9 -- 1st walk
M 10 -- 1st run -- 1st stretch --
T 11 -- 1st ST
W 12 -- 2nd walk -- 2nd stretch
T 13 -- 2nd ST
F 14 -- 3rd morning hike -- 3rd stretch
S 15 -- 5k race 2nd run


I also work part time and am a homemaker - just in case you think all I do is workout lol.
Except for the ST classes, all my workouts are in the morning.

I did finally come up with a fitness routine several months ago, but have had difficulty following it due to a knee injury I developed last January. It is bad enough that I cannot do any HIIT fitness because I have two artificial hips, but I have been terribly discouraged about my knee.

Sunday - yoga
Monday - walk
Tuesday - ST
Wednesday - rest
Thursday - ST
Friday - walk
Saturday - walk

I actually walk more than I have scheduled especially since we added a dog to our family this June. Many days I get 10K steps, but other days I get around 5K. My yoga suffers at times during the summer months because we are so busy. But it is my ST that suffers the most. I am seriously thinking of trying a personal trainer since I am a YMCA member. I hate to pay for it, but I'm wondering if it would help kick start me again.

Exercise Plan:
MWF - strength training with my trainer as usual
TTh - walk in the mornings, with a goal of working up to running again
SaSu - open to whatever whim I have. Lately it has been long walks (4 to 5 miles). I miss the bike rides and biking weather is coming to a close, so I'll get back to that. I need to start swimming again. I miss open water swims. The pool just doesn't do it for me.

Spontaneous exercise - I've worked that into my routine already. I park far away when at stores. I go for a walk with co-workers when they fetch their lunch. I walk the stairs rather than the elevator. I'll look for more opportunities.

Day 9: Select Exercise Plan
My exercise plan is to have a minimum of 20 minute of planned exercise each day, which can be anything: yoga, WATP, running, kayaking, hiking, strength training, biking, zumba, shoveling snow, elliptical, FitnessBlender, front yard soccer, road tennis, etc. In addition, I throw in quite a bit of spontaneous exercise - jumping jacks while waiting for my computer to boot up, walking to the basement bathroom from my third floor office, "inefficiently" putting away laundry by taking each item to it's place individually (when I have the time).

I love how I feel when I exercise. I love to get super sweaty and tired. I love how strong I feel, and how much I've improved my balance (which is largely a function of strength). I love it that I can say YES when my kids want me to play soccer or tennis outside with them.

I also know that if I don't exercise one day, I'm less likely to exercise the next day. I am the human version of Newton's Law: a body in motion tends to stay in motion and a body at rest tends to stay at rest. When I miss an exercise day, I lose my momentum. Thankfully, I haven't been sick, but even on days when I'm a little under the weather, I find some super gentle yoga, or I just go for a short stroll outside.

Exercise gives me something to look forward to every day, and I never feel like I "have to" exercise.

I have built a 1,125-day exercise streak this way and that keeps me going, too!

Day 9: Select an Exercise Plan

Friday, October 7 marked 82 weeks since my last run and indications that I was injured. It took 3 months for the pelvic fracture diagnosis to follow. It has been a long road back. In recent weeks, I am delighted to say that I have undertaken a structured walking plan. It was evident from the get go that I could not work it as written and it would be necessary for me to repeat each week and take it slower. So, that's what I am doing.

I have been given specific guidelines from the orthopedic surgeon and physical therapists. My primary care physician has also chimed in with her suggestions. I am dong my best to balance it all and get back on my feet.

Have my eye on the following goal: 150 minutes of exercise per week–the amount of exercise that the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) says will stave off diabetes, heart disease, and stroke; lower blood pressure and cholesterol; increase energy; and improve depression and anxiety. September's fitness activity averaged around 144 minutes per week. I am very close to meeting this goal.

The last couple of weeks I have seen 149 and 146 minutes. I'm almost there! The most important thing for me to keep in mind is that I am to BACK OFF. These are the watch words given to me by the physical therapists. I have repeatedly been reminded that this is not an injury recovery to be pushed. So, after 82 weeks, I continue to practice patience.

Day 9 - Select an Exercise Plan

I walk 6K steps on a daily basis and have a strength training class 1 time/week. I need to do it 2 times/week but find that I am resisting doing it on my own.....time to find another class.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Don't make todays choices be tomorrows regret

I'm stoked about this one! I've been doing Jillian Michaels Body Revolution for a while now, but my order of Body Shred was just delivered this week! The circuits really kick my butt. :) So, I'm combining Body Shred with a day or two of cycling, since I have a cycling event coming up in October.

I have had an exercise plan since 2011, so just recommitted myself.
Yoga: 6 days a week (acknowledging that I often skip a weekend day)
Running: Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun
Walking: Tue, Thu, Sat

I built this up gradually, starting with stationary biking and easy dumbbell and stability ball exercises from SP Fitness Demos. I never pushed myself hard as I hate sweating, huffing and puffing and muscle soreness. Only added weight or distance when I felt previous level became too easy. I love the peace and joy of home workouts and being outside alone.

That's a good combination, and taking the stairs is great as spontaneous exercise.

My two exercises are walking and stretching. Looking back at my results, I realize that I still have to find a way to do them more routinely and regularly. And I am not sure if the irregular pattern is because i overdo it for a while and need to recuperate, or what else is going on.

So my commitment for starters, is to "only" do a half hour of either 6 days out of 7, alternating each, until I can see that it becomes really a routine.
I will write it as 'to do' on my agenda at the beginning of the week, and check it as i go .

And to add more spontaneous exercise in the form of taking the stairs rather than the elevator.

This one isn't a problem for me either. I have a rebounder, small weights and a stationary bicycle that I already use most mornings. My daily routine takes about an hour.

My commitment here is to do this routine 6 days a week, and bump up the speed and weights as I can.

This isn't a problem for me. I have exercised for years. I think I must be in the 1% that thought they could control weight with exercise alone.
My usual routine is hockey 2x/week, weights 3x/week/ run or eliptical 3x/week.

I have been injured with a torn rotator cuff. So off the weights for 2 months. Now back to very very light weight.
Hockey is over for the season.

My plan for spring is run 2x/week, eliptical 3x/week and start slowly back into the wqeights 2x/week. I want to add in walking in the evenings. I will try for 2x/week

For exercise, I already walk 4-5 miles every day. And do yoga 3-4 times a week (altho I've fallen off recently... gotta get back on track) Plus just last week I added the Couch to 5K rookie program. I completed Week 1 and Today was Week 2 Day 1 of that program... I'm also planning to try to get in more strength training, altho I balk at that and don't do it.

I'm a walker. My goal is to walk at least 4 times a week. It feels weird (in a good way) to make time for me and my health, but I'm sure I will get used to it. I walked yesterday, will walk tomorrow Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. 3 miles each day.

Ok Ok... I've been avoiding "making plans" I admit it. It's hard for me to set any sort of plan... for eating, for exercising, etc. I exercise pretty much every single day, but I sort of do what I want... when I want. LOL.

My plan is to do at least 20 mins a day this week. I'm doing back exercises for my back pain. in the morning and before bed to help with pain until I can get to my Drs office.

But if I HAVE to schedule a day by day thing... (which I do think would feel restrictive, but I can try it)

Monday- run
Tuesay- dance or kick boxing
Wed- run
Thursday-spin
Friday-Dance or run
Saturday dance or yoga
Sunday- rest/ walk

I usually work out about 30-60 mins a day. :)

variety works for me too. My plan for the next couple of weeks is:

Mon: Hot Yoga
Tues: Gym Cardio/strength training
Wed Slow Flow Yoga
Thurs Gym Cardio/strength training
Sat: Yoga Basics

I have specific classes picked out at my yoga studio and plan to start going to those classes regularly instead of my old way of going to classes as it fit my schedule. Now I'm going to schedule around these classes, so the teachers will get to know me and my practice.

Also, I've enlisted one of my colleagues at work to help motivate me to get to the gym on Tues/Thurs. She goes regularly before lunch and has been emailing me when she goes...it's been working really well so far.

Activity had always been a challenge for me, but for the last week it I have been able to be consistent. I am not setting one type of exercise. I have found over the last week that the variety has kept it interesting for me. So my plans are:

Monday: yoga class
Tuesday - Thursday: Pilates / Bollywood Fitness / Yoga from DVD or PVR or use rebounder
Friday and either Saturday or Sunday: cross-country skiing or strength training depending on the weather

Revisting this chapter..............my last post sounds depressing...NOT ME emoticon I've been exercising for a long time now. Dr oked it many many years ago. ((HUGH GIGGLES)). I am older and not in the best of shape. In the beginning I was shy about going to the gym I was afraid that I would jiggle LOL.Afraid someone would laugh. But after seeing folk bigger than I was that fear went away. I recently stepped out in faith and joined a gym. They have trainers but at this time I do not want them. I do not want to go out on a stretcher. emoticon I've seen many folks start out strong with them and end up quitting. I am no quitter. But I do not intend on use personal trainer either. I am a special case and I do not feel like discussing to them about my health struggles and them trying to adapt to me. I hate pitty!!!!! or being judged because of my health. I told a person whom I knew that I was diabetic and this person said "you don't look like you have diabetes". My thought was I did not know that diabetes had a look............. So I flipped it back on him and said 'God is good like that".

I still have by trusty stationary bike. I brought it at a yard sale for 6.00. In the past my hubbie brought a new bike and it only lasted 6 months and it was over 200.00 thanks WALMART! emoticon . Instead of running out to buy big exercise items I purchase small one like exercise dvd's I found many of them at the thrift shop Winsor Pilates I am sure cost a arm and a leg but I only paid 1.00 to .50 for them. I still have my stretchy bands and small weights. I replaced my pilates ball. I purchased a step aerobics dvd but I do not have an aerobic stepper....So that will be my next purchase.

Since sticking with aerobics and going to the gym my endurance has improved and I am not nearly winded as I used to be while exercising. emoticon I challenge myself by increasing my time or distance on the treadmill or bike. I also use programs that are challenging on the exercise equipment. I also walk in the gym with weight balls. As long as I have my MP3 player I am good!!!!!!!!!

A still do spontaneous movement. I am the main cleaner at home. So I still use my grater when not in a hurry--instead of the food processor, I cut my own veggies some of the times. I have not yet used my clothes line yet but I plan on doing just that. I do not have a dish washer so I am it. I still park a ways off from the store. Dents and dings in the car is ugly. So I park away I do my own sweeping and vacuuming. I've seen on tv a robot floor sweeper. Now that is too much emoticon .I mop my floors I care for my own home I have no maids...but sometimes it would be nice. emoticon If I am doing extensive cleaning I do count that as exercise. I love gardening but I play it safe. Allergies are no fun and I want to avoid the allergens at all cost.

Now Summer and school being out will be challenging at present time but since my car is in the shop and I can not get to the gym I am exercising at home. I think that the school routine will be good carried out as if school is still going on. that way I can go to the gym and get my exercise over in the mornings. I have found out that evening exercise does not agree with me I am too tired then. I usually dont follow schedules when exercising when I get there my mind cha changed or the equipment I want is being used. I need to work on strength training cause I do not do that yet much..........................I have made advantages on exercising just in case I have an I do not want to exercise day. .

This one is easy so while I am still working on Day 8 I am going to do Day 9.

I don't have a problem with exercise. It's how I relax. It's also an excuse to get out of the house when the teens are driving me nuts.

I'm resurrecting old threads.

My plan for next week.

Sunday: Toning either in the gym or at home + Ripped in 30 level 1
Monday: Ripped n 30 level 1 + 30 minutes cardio
Tuesday: Swimming and ripped in 30 level 1
Wednesday: Tu Bshvat and my 15 year old turns 16 so if I want to have all that dried fruit and his birthday cake...I'm going to do cardio for an hour or swimming and ripped in 30 level 1
Thursday: Ripped in 30 level 1 and Kathy Smith B fit
Friday: Swimming
Saturday: Take a break or not..

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your
life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on,
rely on, or blame. The gift is yours -- it is an amazing
journey -- and you alone are responsible for the quality of
it. This is the day your life really begins."

New goals:
Eat Positively
Exercise daily (that one is already achieved)
Experiment with 3-5 meals a day
Avoid binge for at least 3 weeks.

My plan is to add 2 gym days each week. Given my work schedule isn't too hectic these days, I'm going to fit it in either during lunch or right at 5pm (instead of lingering/chatting with coworkers at end of day...maybe I can even get one of them to go to the gym with me so that we can chat/catch up while on the treadmill at the gym!).

I'm already going to yoga regularly and either bike or play tennis on the weekend. So I think adding 2 gym days will be good.

My plan is: Cardio-mostly walking.
I've been trying to start doing more toning and strength, but when I started my program I got tendinitis. So, now the plan is to do more toning and strength, but take it slowly.

I'm training to walk a half marathon in mid December, so that's setting my whole exercise agenda right now. (cross training and strength training are included in the schedule, and I always need to do yoga a stretches to support my hips and lower back for the long walks)

Hi! I have not had a good 3 days, especially busy and I let Beck slide so I am going back to the beginning of Week Two Day 8. I plan to do my water aerobics at least 3 times a week and walk 30 minutes at least 3 times a week and on the other 4 days do at least 10 minutes of walking or exercise and increase from there. Everyone have a great Sunday. WE CAN DO THIS!! June emoticon

My exercise plan is to add in at least one daily walk at work - it's about 2/3 of a mile indoors if I walk a certain lap around the medical center - and to work up to daily or near-daily exercise on the Wii, using EA Sports Active: More Workouts. I tried the Wii Fit before, but am not fond of it; EA Sports Active really makes you sweat! For now I'm doing the easy ~12-minute warm-up/cool-down set, and when I get to the point where I can exercise on it every day without my muscles absolutely screaming at me, then I want to do their 30-day challenge mode.

If I get bored by that program or need a break, I have Just Dance 2 for a quick, fun dance to do.

Right now I am doing the 5K your way on on the off days I usually either play the WII with my dd or do an exercise DVD. I have a ton of exercise DVDs that I love. Some of my favorites and Dancing with the Stars, The Firm, Leslie Sansone, and Biggest Loser. I am also thinking about buying me and my dd bikes so we can bike around town every now and then. Also may join the Y and go swimming!!!! YAY! I just want to have lots and lots of choices or I will get bored.

Be blessed,

I really like the Schuler book. I don't have weights yet, except for 1 gallon water jugs that I use. I am doing the warm-ups, and then some strength training from SparkPeople, and then some power walking--three times a week, or at least twice, depending upon how much heavy gardening and cleaning I am doing. emoticon
EDIT
Oh, and some stretching--10-25 minutes after the power walking.

I attempted to put this all together in a strength training program, but it would not come back up the next day.

My exercise plan now that it's winter is to do a Leslie Sansone walk DVD most days to help keep my steps up. On days that I have more time to do a 1 mile in the morning and then after work to do my 3 mile ones. I'm restarting after Christmas and I've decided to start out slow with some of the easier ones than I was doing. I had been doing jogging and intervals which are good, but I think I did too much too fast and ended up with some soreness and pain. So, I'm taking it slow. I keep track of my steps for insurance purposes. Last fall I was doing large amounts of steps daily and then on weekends sometimes doubling that. I was walking constantly. When I had to go inside, I got frustrated the steps were adding up as quickly. So, I've allowed myself to cut back to a lower number. If I can get more, I will. But, I will wait to do the big numbers when I can get back outside. Right now I'm getting other benefits such as an upper body workouts.

This is one I had thought out the first time through Beck, but I'm recommitting to it now. My planned exercise is a 30-45 minute walk with the dog every morning unless the weather doesn't cooperate, in which case I will do one of my yoga DVD's.

When I made this plan in September, I wasn't sure how it would work through the winter because I live in Wisconsin. My biggest problem exercising outdoors in the winter is actually the dark more than the cold. It's pretty daunting to venture out in the dark and cold at 6:00 am in January, but when I do it, I enjoy it quite a bit. It's really quite gorgeous and quiet to be out before dawn. I'm an outdoorsy girl, so the treadmill or stationary bike or other indoor workouts always don't work for me on a long-term basis.

Anyway, the rule of thumb I'm trying out this winter is that if the wind chill is above 10 degrees, I'm outdoors but otherwise I will stay in and do yoga. Now I just need to work on developing the habit. I did trudge through a few inches of snow to walk for half an hour this morning and it was actually pretty fun -- the dog loves it too! The next few days, the wind chill is below zero, so I will be indoors for sure.

My biggest problem with planned exercise (other than working up the courage to go out!)is getting distracted in the morning. When I worked on Day 8, I worked out a different morning routine that doesn't involve me getting on the internet before I exercise, so I'm hoping that helps.

Oh, I forgot about spontaneous exercise. I'm actually good about taking the stairs at work and parking far away in parking lots, so I'll just remember to do that, and also I am super-lucky to have a gym at work (my office is an old elementary school), so I can also make time to go up and walk a few laps on my breaks a few days a week. The other thing I've been wanting to make time for is ice skating -- we have a great indoor olympic rink nearby -- but that feels a little too ambitious right now so I'll just sit on that idea for now.

I do good with the scheduled exercise, because I have a set rotation for Turbo Jam that I'm completing, but not so good with the spontaneous exercise. I'm going to have my desk at work changed to standing height which will help me out here.

I haven't been checking off spontaneous exercise on my Skills worksheet because I didn't think I did any. But I actually do. The parking garage at work is 5 blocks from my building. That's spontaneous exercise. Instead of taking the elevator in the building, I use the stairs. I need to give myself credit for this.

As for planned exercise, I walk my dog at for at least an hour every day, and I take a 15-20 minute walk on campus every day. I'm going to start using the New You Bootcamp videos from Coach Nicole again. I plan to do two videos (20 mins) every other day to get some targeted toning exercise.

Hi all,
I joined the group but haven't been active until now.
The exercises I am doing at the moment are
walking 30 min in AM before work 6:30-7:00
and alternating between Zumba and T-Tapp after work 5 days a week. (well that is my plan) and so far so good this week.
OLDOWL- I highly recommend T-Tapp for anyone suffering with any injuries. here is the webiste if you are interested www.t-tapp.com . They have discounts on the 3rd (i think)Tuesday of every month.

Wii Fit is my exercise of choice.
I prefer something I can do at home.
My favorites right now are Basic Step and Free Run.
I, too have pain issues.
This has ended more than one exercise streak.

I do not find movement fun! Only painful. In my youth I loved to dance, but that stopped with the broken ankle in 1989. I have a stationary bike. And a wii fit but they are both to hard on my bad back. I tried Curves, again too hard on the back. I tried the pool at the Y but my COPD is the problem there. The doctor said probably a reaction to the chlorine. I took a class on tai chi at the Senior Center. I do that for 10 minutes every day but it’s not much exercise. My doctor says exercise is good for my back just NO twisting the back. I’ve been going to the store 3 times a week and walking an hour leaning on a cart and counting it as a 30 min walk, but I hate it. Besides I can’t really afford it. I never get out of the store without buying something. I like walking outside on nice days but the uneven terrain is too hard on the ankle. Any suggestions on exercise?

This was easy for me as I am already exercising. I have a collection of Leslie Sansone walk/aerobics DVD, Pilates dvds, An old stationary bike, hand weight, stability ball, stretch band-resistance bands and a pedometer. So I have a mini gym at home. Oh yea I do strength training but I don't like it. I found out while reading the beck book that not do we lose fat but muscle too. That is not good. This was not in the book but we lose 1/4 muscle after the age of 20. I hate it but I smile and bear it. Do it anyway!!! The only thing that may keep me from exercising is sickness me or my kids. Other than that I am exercising. Even when I ate my worst I could always exercise. Since I am a stress/anger eater I will use exercise, prayer to combat the urge to eat at these times.

We have a fairly new car sorry for saying this but people are lazy and don't want to walk to far to the department stores. I have learned to park far away that way my car won't get all banged and scratched up. I see them riding around and around trying to find a parking place near the store. Huh when it warms up I hang the clothes out on the line (old fashioned in these times) electricity costs. Every penny saved is good. I wash dishes by hand not dish washer. Hey every movement helps out. I do have a hand grater and I use it but when there is a rush I do take out the old trusty food processor.

I don't do much outside activities I have wicked allergies and I don't want to get started. So most of my workouts are inside. Unless I need a change up and go to local college and walk in the student center.


I wrote this from an older post:

Updated: THIS WAS USUALLY THE EASIEST FOR ME A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. I've lost some of my motivation to exercise "consistently". I have some health challenges at times I do not have the strength to exercise after cleaning the house top to bottom. So I use heavy house cleaning as exercise. I've recently brought a yoga dvd from the BL for a change in routine. IT IS good and it get you sweating. Asthma is a factor so as much as I would love to do a 60 min session of exercising daily that in not going to happen. For days I've done my best I will not allow anyone including my Mouthy Dr to discredit my efforts. I still use the clothes line when the weather permits and hand grater is busy. On occasion I do walk a ways to the store and not park so that my car gets dents on it. I need to pick things up though... emoticon patience and keep trying Girl emoticon GO GRACE GO!

As I put in my schedule for day 8, I already have the planned exercise set. The spontaneous exercise is soooo much harder now that I don't have a job. And since I don't have a job I rarely go shopping unless its for food. So..... I will have to get creative with that right now.. but this is what I have so far.


I will incorporate spontaneous exercise by:

* going outside with the dogs
* going outside and just walking around
* doing a little cleaning here and there (I admit it. I'm spoiled, my hubby does most of this emoticon )

I will incorporate planned exercise by:

* doing 60 minutes of cardio and/or strength exercise 6 days a week. This seems like a lot, and some days I may not use all 60 minutes, but I'd rather over schedule time and under schedule. This way when I DO get a job, I will already be in the mindset that I need to make sure I have enough time for exercise.

I have fit exercise in my day by going to a weight lifting class 2 times a week, then doing cardio 5 times a week--eliptical machines, treadmill, etc. or if weather cooperates I run or cross country ski. The one thing I also do because I need to is walk the dog. (She also likes to ski with me--she walks in my tracks!) I may not feel like going out in the cold but either I walk her or she digs in the garbage and pees on the rug! emoticon

My exercise plan is going well:

I walk Joey the puppy 3/4 mile--takes 15 minutes daily
I work out with weights/machines at gym 3 times per week for about 20-30 minutes
I walk most days--generally 20-40 minutes
I bike when it is nice - generally 30-60 minutes
I play pickleball when I can 1-3 times a week for 90 minutes

I rarely have a day with zero exercise.

I have decided to do exercise videos at home 4x per week first thing in the morning. Then, I will take my dog on a 30 min. minimum walk 2-3x per week. In order to meet this goal, I will have to get up earlier, but it will be worth it. I know I will feel so much better about myself if I could just commit to regular exercise and stick with it. One of my advantages to losing weight is to feel better about myself too - go figure! I will also use the extra morning time to pack a healthy lunch and snacks every day. It's too hard estimating the calories of take-out, even if you think you have made healthy choices.

I had this all worked out before even reading Beck. I tend to exercise regularly with occasional breaks (reason not yet understood).

I am going forward with my usual stuff but allowing myself all the time I want to work up the amount of time or mileage.

This is particularly important to me. At 62 I noticed that my failure to do weight work led to weakness. I can get off the floor easily in the morning but my evening I have to struggle a bit to get enough strength to get up. So I have been back at the gym. I started with 10 minutes 3 times a week. Sunday I was able to do 20 minutes without looking at the clock wishing I was finished.

I have a big issue with consistency. I've been doing better lately, but usually I just realize I've tapered off to not exercising at all. Not sure why.

My exercise plan is to do a strength training DVD at least 3x/wk. I've been trying to consistently do either the 30 Day Shred or Prevention 3-2-1. I really need to work on just making myself do SOMETHING. I need to remember 5 minutes is better than nothing.
