Revisiting: Exercise Challenge

A few weeks ago I challenged myself to exercise for fifteen minutes every day. I was successful and then decided to see how I handled an entire month. Now that we are in early May, let’s take a look back and see how I did.

I didn’t do terribly, but I wish it went better.

The week of the 14th I just wasn’t feeling myself, and I used that as an excuse to take a few days off from exercising. Towards the end of the week, I remembered that exercising does make me feel good and I should try to do at least something. For the rest of the time I was able to do a yoga routine every other day.

There were times when I was only doing five-minute routines. Those days I tried to do multiple throughout the day. While those aren’t the workouts I necessarily like, it was nice to get a few minutes to stretch. I didn’t realize how tight my muscles get throughout the day.

Another thing I did this month was a few shorter, but harder routines. I did these shorter so I wouldn’t get frustrated. The poses were more difficult and I want to master them, but I need to practice in shorter bursts. As time progresses I’ll be able to increase the time and see some body improvements.

I’m a little disappointed in how I did with the month long challenge. I really want to get into the routine of waking up, exercising, and then getting Little P up and ready for the day. Even though this month didn’t go as well as I had hoped, I am going to keep at it! I’m determined to make this a part of my daily routine.

  1. It takes time to work something new into daily routine but it is well worth it, if it is something like this that you want to work at. I used to do my exercise in the morning but found I like to end my day with exercise instead. It is all about finding what works for you!

    Good luck! 🙂
