My Exercise Needs

Sunday, April 05, 2015

For this weekend's challenge, we're doing a Choose Your Own Adventure challenge, and one of the choices is to research what would be the best cardio for you and write about it. So... I went to the blog of one of my inspirations - M, also known as Cipher1971:

She went to exercise at about.com and took a quiz, and I followed in her footsteps.

I got The Free Spirit - and it nailed me as I need a REGULAR routine - that's my downfall. My other downfall is dealing with fairly consistent RA-type flare-ups. I'm dealing with that medically now, but I also need to just get exercise in EVERY day and enough to move me forward.

Interestingly enough - I was encouraged to do a lot of what I do now - exercise videos, dance, etc. They also suggested a dreadmill (not happening) or regular classes at a gym - those are what I tend most to fail at. I do think I'll challenge myself to keep an exercise journal this week, though, and see if I can really up things by the following week.

I want to thank M, again, for the constant inspiration - she is a MOM and has done a lot to change her life - I actually go through the day when I'm starting to flag and think "What Would M Do"?

Okay... have a lovely, HEALTHY day, one and all!

    Wow - emoticon - thank you for the praise - I am speechless.

    It is great that your workout regime is what is recommended, just goes to show that overtime we will find what works for us.

    Look forwards to hear how the journal works out.

    Have a great day
