Today’s Tip: How much should I exercise?
There is no right answer! Phew that was easy. I honestly think it depends on each individual person. I’m considered obese and I know I should be exercising at least an hour a day if not more and that is just my personal feeling. It is imperative that I work hard at losing weight no doubt about it. Sometimes I feel I have to take a day or two off each week but in reality I really don’t have to. I know for me personally, I have to be careful because sometimes I tend to overdo it.
When I first decided to change my lifestyle and get off my toosh and exercise, I took it slow. I started working out only 2 days a week and went up from there. And I only started with Walk Away the Pounds in-home walking. Many of my readers mention that they are shocked at how much I workout and feel like they aren’t doing much but that isn’t true at all. You will get there! You just have to start somewhere and if that’s only 15 minutes a day then so be it. BUT you must start and never stop!
Now there is the chance for burnout and you don’t want to experience that. I have experienced that before and let it hold me back so I started switching things up on a regular basis once I was able to start doing more challenging workouts. So my motto has always been “Mix It Up”. You can read an article I wrote a few years ago called Mix It Up-Exercise Made Fun.
My goal for November is to do something active at least 6 days a week. I would love to see myself workout at least 300 minutes every week. That equates out to 50 minutes of activity a day. I do have the Pile on the Miles challenge that I took on from Nov. 1-Thanksgiving so I’m sure I can do this.
What is your November daily exercise goal?
