I'm sedentary. I have the SBD exercise DVD. I haven't started it yet. I don't want to hurt myself or set myself up for failure. My goals will be small this month.

August goals are:

15 minutes per day for the first two weeks, 5X per week.
25 minutes per day for the second two weeks, at least 5X per week.

Hopefully I will be able to increase the time each month.
