I loved this potential 2013 goal suggestion from An Exacting Life: I would go for a fitness goal like “walk every day it isn’t raining” and maybe increase walking time over the course of the year? Since you are in the UK, the “days without rain” rule should give you an out 50% of the time, LOL!
What a good idea, and one that I’ve already starting to adhere to.
(avoiding the rain on today’s walk)
It makes me a little sad how difficult it is to motivate myself for exercise these days. As a teenager, and young adult, I was so fit, but it was through playing team sports (hockey). Being in a team motivated me to get moving, going out for a walk on my own does not. <——— BIG Excuse. I have friends (and hubby) I can walk with, I just need to organise it.
I dug out an old photo of myself last week. The only one I have left of me that’s not in a wedding album. I kept it because I weighed about 150lbs when it was taken – September 2002. I think 10 years of trying to get back to 150 is long enough don’t you?
