31 Days to Healthier Holidays - December 14
Tuesday, December 14, 2010
Today, Spark advises us to sweat more..and tells us of the theory that 10 more minutes a day of intense exercise can ward off the holiday weight gain.
Well, from a personal standpoint, I will only say that I'd be happy enough to get in my usual 30 minutes a day, because I have NOT been good about that over the last week or so, but to try to get even more would be awesome.
I'm not sure why my "eureka moments" don't stick with me. Sometime since I've started this daily December journal, I remember opining that 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there, add up to the 30 that it's sometimes so hard to find the time for in one chunk..and actually doing split workouts a couple of times..and now, here I am, not getting any of it done..
But this morning, I read my friend Kellie's blog about having been on Spark for 3 years, and about how she is certain that developing the habit of exercise not only helped her to lose the weight, but also to keep it off. And certainly, I have talked at length about how important I think exercise is to the journey's success, so once again, I set out to get my activity in today. As I say all the time, I LOVE to exercise, it's just hard to find the time..but sometimes you have to MAKE the time. My resolution for today..
