A retreat

I am taking a temporary retreat from this fitness challenge thing. While I believe that I SHOULD be exercising at least 30 minutes a day, the reality at the moment is that I am not doing actual "exercise" at all. I don't sit down much, but nothing you can call a regular work out! Out of the last seven days, I hit my goal of three loads of wood a day a grand total of ONCE. I have fit in being active a few times, a couple of walks and such, but nothing regular. So I am going to have a think on this. Obviously setting goals isn't working for me here, I am not meeting them. While I am not admitting defeat, I am taking a retreat to regroup and work out how to tackle this one effectively. Any helpful hits would be most welcome! Perhaps I just need to remember that I am only human at the moment....... Watch this space, I'll be back - I'm stubborn that way!

I am so right there with you. I did so good for over a month some days I had to break it into ten minutes at a time but I made sure to get thirty in daily. I felt great! Then we had the flu and with three kids it took three weeks to get over and sleep just started getting good again and then the strep hit. Very discouraging. However the days here are getting nicer and with the boys in the yard I hope to walk around and at least chase the little one. Try to feel peace because you're doing what needs to be done. Good Luck Angie

Thanks Angie, breaking it into ten minute lots sounds good, I will have a look at implementing that when I am feeling a little less overwhelmed. Rearranging the furniture seemed like a good idea at the time....
