Days 15, 16 & 17 have been great - I'm getting stronger and feeling less sore so I'm making progress. But I came to a revelation of sorts a couple of days ago. Someone commented that every little bit helps and I realized how right they were. Tha... Read more

So far so good - it's funny I didn't think 5 minutes could be so challenging, but I'm realizing more about myself. My plan is to always do my exercise in the morning but yesterday I woke up with headache and I didn't want to chance it getting wo... Read more

So it's funny but the five minute goal worked out really well for me. I have a habit of setting goals that are so big or so difficult to achieve that I set myself up for failure. But five minutes - no problem and I actually went and worked out l... Read more
