Interesting challenge--Update Three--Which is more difficult...

Monday, February 04, 2013

So the experiment has been going pretty well (putting in 15 minutes of exercise before any snacking). I'm almost daring myself to keep it up after the week is up. We'll see.

This challenge has definitely been getting me to think a little more before I snack. How hungry am I, really? That's been powerful.

Another thing I was thinking today as I was doing my 30 minutes of exercise:

Which is more difficult:

The actual workout/exercise?
Getting myself motivated enough to do the exercise?

I have a suspicion that I know the answer to that question. More on that later!

If you'd like to see what this challenge is all about, you can read my previous couple of posts. Here's a basic overview:

    This your experimental 15 min. Work out before the snacking is seems started really encouraging yourself and us "the fun of you and your blog" (*^^*).

    One of my team I am belong to now doing a challenge of 21 day. Which is, most of us joined the website called "" what it does is, first, make some good habit you want to keep it up. According to the Habitforge, it take average person to form permanent habit will be 21 days. So after you've register with then and made your habit to be, everyday, Habitforge will e-mail you and remind you and encourage you of your habit to do it. This is kind of cool. so I want to share with you. I've started 5 days ago, and so far so good. I am keep on doing my habit. Which, mine is " do strength training everyday for 15 min. The strength training is one of my weakness. So if this will become my good habit, I will be very happy. Good luck on your 7 day or more day?challenge !!

    Do keep us posted! Just read your previous blogs about this experiment. Sounds like a good habit and as you said it makes you think about whether you are really hungry or not. I know that I grew up in a snacking family and it is hard to break the habit. Most of the time I am not really hungry. emoticon

    I believe getting motivated is half the battle. Once you are moving you no longer have the excuses in head as to why you shouldn't be or don't want to be exercising.
