week 3 - check in

This wasn't my best week as far as exercise goes. On the three days that I actually did exercise, I owned it, if I do say so. Owned it for me anyway, considering I've only been exercising for about five weeks again.

Saturday - 3 miles
Sunday - 0 miles
Monday - 0 miles
Tuesday - 0 miles
Wednesday - 3 miles
Thursday - 0 miles
Friday - 3 miles

Total for the week (Saturday-Friday) is 9 miles.

I'm hoping this week to be more consistent in my work outs and stop letting myself off the hook with excuses like "it's raining" or "work exhausted me." It's not that they might not be true, but I also know I can't just keep exercise for days that meet some perfect standard.

Along with this challenge, I'm doing a Biggest Loser challenge through Weight Watchers to push for exercise and total weight loss for the month.


This week was a long one and I was feeling more than a little melancholy. No real reason for it, but it was hard to really push through it. I'm hoping this week to at least exercise four days and I think it's time to start working out before work again, as that way I can't come up with excuses as the day wears on to get out of it.

You did "own it" on those three mile days! I can't remember the last time I did 3 miles in a day - I think that will be my goal for next week!

Thank you so much! And good luck with the goal. the way I worked up to it has been to focus on very small amounts rather than the 3-miles. I just say things like, "Make it to that corner" and when I get to the corner, I come up with another small goal. It's easier for me that way and keeps me from giving up.
