Last week I challenged myself to get back into the groove of working out. The challenge was pretty cut and dry: workout three times a week for thirty minutes over the next four weeks for a total of at least twelve workouts. Extra Workouts in a week do not carry over to the next week. My thought process was pretty simple: get moving, stop obsessing over not meeting lofty goals, and have fun with working out again.
Week One was certainly succesful. It’s like something broke through after saying I didn’t have to workout five days a week for an hour a day. Suddenly, the energy to pull myself off the couch after work, change into my workout clothes, and throw on a DVD magically appeared. Better yet, I felt no guilt for taking more than one day off in a row, and my energy levels are getting back to where they should be. Go fig.

Has a steady workout program been eluding you? Have you fallen off the workout wagon? Yeah, I know this isn’t a super duper difficult challenge, but that’s not what I needed, and maybe it’s not what you need. Feel free to join in if you wish, you don’t have to finish at the same time. Let me know *your* progress!!!!
