My exercise log - by Mary
By keeping track of my progress, I see a visible encouragement on my calendar. I have had a slight weight gain, and I can see why. So I am beginning May with a new resolve to get back on track.
My overall goal is to lose 7 pounds and be able to run 1 mile by the end of August. Can you see I believe in small goals?! The slight weight gain has added up to be more weight that needs to come off. And I know my eating habits were way off base; but I also can see that with no exercise and very little walking/running, that also helped put me where I am.
This morning I ran a little but overall walked 2.2 miles. It's going to be a busy day today, and I don't see any chance of getting in 30 minutes of exercise. I've put on my pedometer (unfortunately after the walk), and I'm going to try to wear it every day. Remember, small goals will help you get to where you need to be!
