30/5 Challenge: Day 22

Well, I am still continuing strong after the initial reset. It's been about three weeks and I haven't missed or stumbled yet this time. But now we are coming up to Thanksgiving, which will be a challenge. I want to make it through these thirty days, so I have to be extra vigilant for the holiday.

After this first challenge, I do plan to keep up with the daily exercise. The plan is that by then it should be habit and something I do automatically all the time. My next step as I've mentioned is something food related -- slowing down, or eating less -- but I still haven't figured out the details there. But I plan on doing another 30 day challenge and posting the info on this blog.

30/5 Challenge: Update

After the reset, I am back to day 10 and still going strong. I'm doing 16 push-ups and 40 sit-ups, which I think it quite an accomplishment considering my current physical state. As long as I don't injure myself or get sick again, I think the 30 days will be easy to finish.

Now I'm contemplating my next challenge. I want to do something food related, but am not sure what approach to take and how to measure progress. Any of you have some ideas or suggestions?

30/5 Challenge: Reset

Things were going so well and so easily, I think I go cocky. Well, and I also got sick. I barely moved through some stretches on Saturday, and didn't do anything at all on Sunday. I'm letting my body recuperate, and then I'll start the exercise challenge all over.

I don't think sickness counts as a real failure, but I will still start the count back at one when I'm feeling well enough to try again.
