When I set a goal – anxiety sets in. Not for everything, but for exercise. Maybe because it is the best thing I can do for my health is exercise. Maybe because no matter how I do it – a major part of it is less than fun. And part of it – is there are ‘rules’.
“make small goals like working out 15 minuets 5 days a week ” : “The first thing you should do is find a time during the day when You can consistently commit to exercising”: “don’t let anything interfere with you exercise schedule”
The little bit every day goal – gives you nothing to do if it doesn’t work. and there isn’t really a result to see. Adding a small amount of exercise is good, but can yo see or feel a difference? in how much time ?
Set time everyday. That might work for some people. But my life is not that routine. My work schedule varies from day to day, and week to week. I ‘set ” my schedule once a week– but there is usually at least once when I say I will do this one day or another day. If I didn’t build in that flexibility – I’d go nuts. Life is not neat and tidy. Things do interfere.
The best thing about doing the 3 day walk – there is time. Before I committed I figured out how I was going to handle things. I pushed a little past the set goals of the training program, because Allergies often lead to complications – meaning I get sick. So I built in time to get sick once or twice ( once was enough thank you ) .
But I also just joined the counties Active for Life program again. My goal is 70 minutes 5 days a week. which I would have hit easily,but I got sick. Now, I’m concerned. Which is silly, because this isn’t the point. And really , if I miss this small goal, it means very little about the big goal.
I am back on track. I walked a good walk to day. BTW – another myth. I didn’t lose anything by being sick and unable to really work out. I feel just as strong as I did before I got sick.
