happy0349 hi and welcome, I work 40 hours week, too. I walk at lunch, sometimes I get in a little walk at break times. It was hard to break the habit of getting up from the desk, sometimes I'd just rather read a magazine, but I make myself go. I had a walking partner, but she (lucky girl) retired so I had to get myself in the habit of walking by myself.

I just keep working at it, if you work at a desk, just standing up every half hour can be a start, start easy, I like to tell myself doing anything, even if it's only a little bit, is better than doing nothing. It's really important not to hurt yourself, so remember to start slow and you'll get better and better with time.

Best of luck to you, keep checking in

My goal for January is to complete a total of 15 workouts (averaging 3 per week, but allowing flexibility if needed). I also have built in a little incentive for myself if I meet my challenge ($40 to buy books), with the potential to earn extra for each additional workout completed ($5 extra per workout).

1- 1/2/14, 20 minutes walking 3.5 mph, 30 minutes strength training
2- 1/3/14, 60 minutes walking on treadmill (10 3.5 mph, 50 3.0 mph)
3- 1/4/14, 60 minute brisk walk at the lake
4- 1/5/14, 60 minute brisk night walk
5- 1/7/14, 45 minutes strength training
6- 1/13/14, 60 minutes strength trainjng

This thread is moving so fast!! And so many of us!!

Kelijpa, I completely agree that doing even a little something is better than nothing, and I remind myself of this every day as it was always an all or nothing mentality with me and I'm learning to change that. Now I'm successfully exercising every day but I have to remind myself that if I miss a day then all is not lost, I can still complete the month having exercised most days and having achieved something I never thought I could have done.

So far:

Vix
1. Workout – 40 cardio, 20 weights
2. Workout – 50 cardio, 20 weights
3. Workout – 35 cardio, 25 weights
4. Dance class - 55
5. 4.8 mile walk - 60
6. Bodypump class - 55
7. Yoga class - 55
8. Aerobics class - 55
9. Workout – 45 cardio, 20 weights
10. Pilates class – 55
11. Dance class – 55
12. 20/20/20 class (cycle, abs, aerobics) – 60
13. Bodypump class - 55
14. Yoga class - 55

Tonight I'm going for a swim!! Then I might treat myself to a jacuzzi afterwards!!
