This week, we are taking weight loss weekly in a slightly different direction. In the past, we have been asking each other questions in order to gain tips and insights into how the others approach weight loss. This week, we are each setting a goal for this week pertaining to exercise and next week we will be discussing the strategies we used to achieve those goals (hopefully not excuses why we couldn't!)
First, let's find out what the goals of the other girls are this week:
"For me exercise comes and goes, I go through stages where I feel like I've got it all worked out, and then for no obvious reason I hit a wall and just can't seem to get into it. I've smashed up against said wall these last few weeks and I'm determined to get out of my rut and back on the wagon" read more at Yo-yo No More

My goals this week are to walk for 20 minutes for four days this week. This may seem like a small goal, but I haven't accomplished this feat in over a month! I need a kick in the rear to jump start my walking routine again, but I also want to set myself up for success. I know that accomplishing this goal will not be without difficulty, but I feel this is a realistic goal for myself.
My plan is to walk Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I know this is lame, but Tuesday evening is the finale of American Idol so I KNOW I will not want to walk then (go Adam!) and Wednesday evenings are devoted to church choir, so that really only leaves me those four days with a cushion of Sunday if I miss one. Also, I am trying something a little different this week, I usually walk after dinner, but after dishes, etc. often I am too tired for a walk. This week, I am going to get up 20 minutes early and walk in the morning. I think getting up 20 minutes early is doable, I'll let you know next Monday!
Is anyone up for taking this challenge with me? We can cheer each other on! E-mail me at joiecancook(at)gmail(dot)com if you are up for it!
