I have pretty seriously neglected my exercise lately and have gained a few pounds. So...I have gotten at least 30 minutes, sometimes over an hour of exercise, for 9 out of the last 11 days. One of the days I missed, I spent at the doctor with my DH. The other day I got some exercise, but not 30 minutes.
I have been walking/hiking and doing my CDC strength training for seniors exercises.
I had to quit looking for perfection and get out there. Forget exactly how many steps or miles, or how tired I am, or how it is 90* before the sun comes up, or how tired the dog is. Actually the dogs are never too tired to go on a walk.
Just do it. [/] Pep talk to myself.
