I think I should concentrate more and more on adding 10 mins here, 10 mins there. Before you know it I'll have over an hour of 'workout' time. It's so very much easier for me to get it done in small increments. It will help me to get up and move more at work since there are no 'Desk Police' here!

I got want to do it and do this for me. My mind is in battle and my body is at war. I'm in battle with myself and if I can over come myself than I can over come it all and do it one day at a time, let it go and get one step closer to my goal.

I'm still finding it easier to focus on eating than exercise, but I've definitely made some good progress these 4 weeks. At the start, I figured I would set a schedule for exercise and stick with it. Well, life happens :) Surprising to me, I found the smaller steps easier to become habit - such as my 10-20 minute walks on lunch, parking at the far end of the parking lot. happily I am doing more yoga and its fun when my 4-year old tries to join. My exercise bike pattern is still sporadic but its improving - and my ability to do it is improving too.
1. Exercise bike 3 times/week. 2. We do plan on buying real bikes when we can afford it and then I want to do family bike rides on weekends and 1-2 evenings while the day is still long enough. 3. Continue my walks on lunch - they are good for stress as well as exercise 4. Yoga right now 4 times/week, eventually daily. 5. Recheck my HDL in early 2013 with a 10-15% increase (42-44) with eventual goal of increasing above 60. I don't know how long it takes to increase, so I'm guessing 10-15% is reasonable.
