OK, I clearly need help (keep gaining weight/slacking off on exercise). I'll come back to figure out what my actual goals are, but something every day (even if it is a 20-minute walk) is where I am going to start.

GOAL: 30 days of exercise (some days can count for 2 if I do enough )
Currently: 8
Should be at: 10

April 1: 1 hour yoga
2: 1 hour yoga
3: 30 minutes C25K
4: 1 hour yoga
5:
6:
7: 1 hour yoga
8: 30 minutes C25K
9: 1 hour yoga
10: 30 minutes C25K
