Le sigh. I keep jumping from exercise "plan" to "plan" - although mostly it's ideas rather than plans, I'm never all *that* specific. Mostly cause I hate being so specific because it's easier to mess up a specific plan than it is to mess up a flexible idea. Anyway. I'm always bouncing around - I did WATP for awhile, got sick of Leslie - too freaken perky and encouraging - tried to start C25K a few times and kept getting interrupted, so I've half-quit that, done DDR (Dance Dance Revolution video game) on and off for a few weeks, which I actually enjoy...
...but I keep getting discouraged all the time because I don't feel like I'm doing *enough*. Like, walking around my neighborhood isn't *enough* because I'm not running. C25K isn't *enough* because I do it on a treadmill at the gym not outside. DDR isn't *enough* because I'm still doing the "basic" level (I trip over myself too much at the higher levels and just get frustrated, which makes me stop playing).
How do you figure out what's *enough* exercise? Is there such a thing? Do you *have* to be exercising all hardcore for it to be worthwhile?
I guess I know, intellectually anyway, that any movement is better than none. But I just don't feel that way. It's like I need to instantly be the valedictorian of exercising to feel like I'm doing myself any good.
How do you guys talk yourself around this mentality? Does anyone else even GET this way?
