My exercise during the past week consisted of one yoga class, one long walk with my husband, and some serious play time with Alyssa. I enjoyed every bit, but it's time to kick my own butt because
-we are coming upon colder months, which means all I want to do is hibernate. Really. I want to sleep, take long showers, and read. And that's it. However, I know that balanced exercise can contribute something to my energy deficits. I know that it can help with my stress levels and poor sleeping patterns. Balanced exercise can add to my quality of life.
-I want to run a half marathon in my sister's new town at the end of February. That is not going to happen if I keep myself cocooned in my favorite blankets all Fall and Winter.
It doesn't seem fair to ask someone else to keep me accountable for my own workouts for the next 5 months. However, I do have this personal blog that anybody can read...The fact that anybody can read what I post makes me feel a more accountable than writing out a plan that only I can see does. So. I created a new tab called "Healthy Body." If you want to see my planned workouts and whether or not I completed those workouts, or leave a question or a comment about the same, just click on that tab. It's up to you; there will not be a quiz. But for me? It's just helpful to know that you might click on it.
I don't want to be caught saying, "well, actually, I just stayed home and watched Community instead" when asked how my run went. I can watch while I'm stretching after my run.
