Default My 1 week challenge

I am challenging myself to one full week of set exercise . Monday (tomorrow) through the holiday weekend I must get 30 minutes of structured exercise each day. I don't know why after 3 and a half months of being so strict on plan, I still cannot get into an routine for exercise. I walk my dog every day, but it really doesn't count as my exercise because the time and length differ from day to day and she isn't really a "walking for exercise" kind of dog. Today's walk would have counted as exercise because we actually walked over 4 miles at a decent pace, but most days it take an hour for just two miles after she gets done sniffing every square inch of the park we walk.

Once I get through one week, I can hopefully string together quite a few more weeks, but the challenge for me is always the first week. I am just so close to getting out of the 200's, I think exercise is what I need to make that final push. Onederland here I come!

Well, kept my commitment today! I did a brisk walk on my lunch at work, 40 minutes then 20 minutes of pilates plus about 15 minutes of calisthenics.
