I have difficulty setting goals.....I find it much easier to make a pledge, a promise to myself. I find I am more focused AND more motivated!. I pledged to walk daily in December, and almost 6 weeks later, I am enjoying a daily walk, even if it is on the treadmill or with Leslie Sansone!

Are You Strong Enough to "JUST STOP IT?!" ("Just Do It!")
PLEDGE: work out ONLY 5-10 minutes per day or session. PLEDGE:NEVER more than 5-10 mins & STOP ! (Play 1 or 2 inspiring/motivating songs - NEW DAY = NEW SONG(s). THEN STOP!!! No matter what do not go past 10 minutes. Do this for EVERY day for 7 days before increasing.
The challenge - the focus - becomes NOT EXERCISING! Oddly enough mind switches gears - WANT TO EXERCISE! Increase in increments: 5 MINUTES ONLY. Are you strong enough to resist the temptation to keep going? With this method = YOU WILL NEVER OVER DO IT. NO STRAIN & EXERCISE EFFECTS are CUMULATIVE!
