Challenges

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.
