How did YOU do last month? I hope you’re doing better than me!
My children and I traveled to Utah and back and then the whole family took a trip to Ft. Lauderdale all within the first 16 days of April. The drive to Utah was accomplished in two days each way and the Ft. Lauderdale trip was a long one. All of it was wonderfully exhausting.
I did get a bit more walking and movement in during all the traveling. No “official” exercising during that part of the month, but I was definitely more active. I prefer natural movement as part of my day over a special exercise video or similar. How about you? Do you prefer incorporating movement into your day? Or do you prefer a gym or video routine?
The rest of the month was less steady than previously, but also more steady (exercising) than I have been really recently. So, while I still have a lot of improvement to make compared to when I started walking daily a year ago (April 11, 2013), I’m doing better than February and March of this year.
Doesn’t the toughness just “get” you when it comes to the everyday-ness of doing things? I mean, I’m good at doing many things when I first start. A year later? Maybe not so good. Of course, lots of factors play into how well I’m doing, but maybe shouldn’t. *sigh* Just working on putting one foot in front of the other currently. Even baby steps get us to where we want to go!
Make sure you stay or get in touch with me via my blog and/or Facebook page. I’m starting into something new and exciting because of it’s incremental (toddler steps) approach to making lasting changes, which I hope will help me take a few larger steps than I have been taking on my own! In particular, I’m beginning a 6 week summer meltdown challenge on May 5th. If you want more information, make sure to PM me via my Facebook business page (for fastest response). I would love for us to get healthy in a lasting way together!!!
