All right Venturers, this week I challenged myself to exercise every day. I wanted to do at least 15-minutes a day. A fairly small amount, but I’ve been a bit lazy since after I gave birth. I don’t want to set too high of a goal and then get frustrated and quit when I can’t reach it. So, my aim was for 15-minutes a day and I was mainly focused on yoga.
I also added in more physical movement to my day. For example, instead of sitting while I worked or watched TV, I would stand. I did some lunges and squats while holding Little P. Overall, just tried to be more active while I went about my usual activities. These I didn’t count towards 15-minute goal.
I am proud to say that I was pretty successful. It was a little hard finding time to do it though. Now, while I am proud that I even managed to get a week done, I’m not sure if I can make this an actual habit. For this, I think the challenge is more in the two to three week range. I don’t want to set a challenge for myself (especially at a week) and come to tell you guys that I couldn’t do it. So, I do try extra hard so I can come and say I was successful.
With that in mind, I think I’m going to up the ante on this one. I will continue my usual weekly challenges and then revisit this at the end of April. For the most part, I do these challenges because it represents a change I want to make in my life.
For now, let’s mark this as a win and then we’ll see if I managed to keep a consistent workout routine throughout the month. I’ll be a bit more lenient for the month. We’ll see if I can do at least four work outs a week and try to increase the time spent working out.
So, what do you guys think? Are you able to keep a consistent workout schedule? How do you keep yourself motivated?
