I definitely need to join this, I haven't been doing well with exercise the last little bit. I just have to figure out what it is I'm going to do.

***EDIT***

I was hoping to do New Rules of Lifting for Women however it seems pretty difficult to do without a gym membership which I can't afford at the moment- or all the extra equipment to do it at home. So I've decided to do a modified 30DS (I can't jump as I live in an apartment so I'm doing other cardio) 3 days a week and then go for at least a 30 minute walk one other day. I'm starting off easy, I hope.

I'll bold each workout once I'm done.

Wk 1 (02/01-02/07): 30DSD1 (02/01) 30DSD2 (02/03) 30DSD3 WALK (02/04)
Wk 2 (02/08-02/14): 30DSD1 30DSD2 30DSD3 WALK
Wk 3 (02/15-02/21): 30DSD1 30DSD2 30DSD3 WALK
Wk 4 (02/22-02/28): 30DSD1 30DSD2 30DSD3 WALK

I'm still working making exercise a daily habit so I'm going to make my goal to simple DO IT at least 6 days per week. Even if it is just walking.

Week 1: 1 2
Week 2: 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Week 3: 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
Week 4: 17 18 19 20 21 22 23
Week 5: 24 25 26 27 28

The 23-24 and 27-28 are going to be especially challenging because for the first I'm going out of town for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and the second DH & I are going to Vegas for a mini getaway until the 2nd.

Success!! Exercised all but 1 day in February!
