If you do just 10 minutes that's good. Don't stop keep pushing.

remember to just do what you can as anything is better than nothing

That will teach me to read before posting

Not doing as much as I want. Laid off from job I walked to, going to tax school to try and get a job, total rearrangement of life and schedules. Not an easy time. I'm so glad I have SP. Working this week at getting back to 10000+ steps.

I would take a book to read at the gym to make the time go faster. Then when I speed the treadmill that was the end of the book. If I am on the bike I read as well.

I actually might try that! But my problem lies in when it gets intense, I get into my workout "zone" and lose focus on everything else and can't concentrate on the texts. Then I end up spending the hour rereading so many paragraphs I end up with less than 10-15 pages read. But maybe intervals won't give me such trouble focusing!

How about this:

one minute fast and two minutes so you can read but don't fall off. emoticon

Thank you everyone for your support!! I have found that my ultimate fall-back excuse is that school must come first, so studying is more important than working out. However, by starting over, I think I have found my niche.

Taking time out to exercise makes me feel guilty, feel stressed while I am working out, and puts on so much pressure when I am trying to relax while stretching. This week I have found the middle ground! By lowering my speeds on the treadmill to a comfortable walk and increasing my length of time by about 50% or so, I can read my homework while I work out!!

I know I am not getting the intensity I would like, but since I can work on my studies while I am walking, I can go for much longer periods of time and increase my endurance without the guilt of letting my academic life suffer :) I also feel fine parking by the library and walking across campus to get to my classes (extra workout with all the books I have to carry!). I am so exited to be getting creative -- and think I have SP and all of you guys to thank for that :)

You are so right about throwing in the towel. That's what I did but now I am back. I had stop doing anything. Didn't put in my intake. Just ate whatever. Now I am in slow movement.

Don't let a backwards slide get you down. Just hop back on that wagon and give it another go. It's worth it and YOU'RE worth it!

This last week of August I also went through my slowing down process I've been doing good but Thursday, Friday and Saturday my energy level was very low,and exercise was the last thing on my mind.
I know one reason was PMS. Being bloated, munchies at night, and just want to be relaxed and be left alone
Another reason my husband birthday was Friday so getting his day prepared took a lot out of me
Third reason starting new job - 3rd shift I have to set my exercise schedule over
Just in that uggghhhh mood..
But I m going to not let those three days set me back. I did lose my 2 pounds I wanted to lose in August, actually I lost 3 and did get my Tuesday "Me Time" but I got to get back into the program for the month of September...which is tomorrow
I do understand what you said when you say "I must learn to allow for the learning curve and keep working at it instead of throwing in the towel."
I worked this hard and not giving up hope just because of a week of PMS....smile

This has been a very difficult week for me. Classes started back up for the fall, I am still recuperating from a nasty head cold, and time has simply not been on my side. My food choices this past week have been worse than they have all summer, and I have not tracked in my food in days.

That being said, my one constant has been 15 mins. of daily exercise. Though I did set aside the time so I would not break my streak, the intensity was not what it once was.

I have slowed down, but I have not stopped!! Overall, I have tried and done more than I would have without SP, but I am still not where I want to be. BUT there is always next week. I can't figure everything out immediately -- I must learn to allow for the learning curve and keep working at it instead of throwing in the towel.
