    Aside from my running goal, I want to get other types of exercise in there for variety and to help keep me from injury. I like boxing and swimming, but boxing is geographically difficult to get to by the time class starts, and swimming takes a lot of time. But, in the grand scheme of things, those are just barriers and excuses to keep me from getting started...so I'll give it a shot!

      @veronicarosell  I just wrote a post on this.  I've been able to be basically serious injury free for 20 1/2 months by listening to my body.  When my body feels overworked and stressed, I do more restorative stuff.

      Maybe set your goals differently in terms of amount of time.  I set a goal of at least 1 minute a day.  Very few days I actually do that little time, but it knowing that every day for the past 567 consecutive days I've accomplished this goal keeps me motivated.

      I have a ton of variety of things that I do to always keep me interested and to keep my body in good condition.

      @ligemst  Hey there!  The time component is a good key.  I think for the activities I really want to do, there's an inherent time component that makes it a bit difficult to commit.  But yes - starting with activities that don't take a lot of prep/cleanup or travel time will be a good place to start.

    On one hand I can say that I'm quite fit by nature's way and also it's because I have been dancing all my life, but now that I am closer to my 30’s I feel as though I need to do more physical exercise. I have always been amazed by people who run on a daily base but I was never really into running. I did try to run a couple of times and I couldn't make it more than 10 minutes but I would like to start to run regularly, work on my stamina and get stronger.

    I'm taking a weekly self-defense class. This is my third 8-week session. Loving this class. It's a small class. Learning so much and I feel better that I am learning how to physically defend myself, since I go on walks all the time alone.

    Just got back after running, that wasn't too hard in the beginning, I like that I have to run 3 min and then walk for a 3 min so I have a time to rest and also it's nice that even when I was getting tired, my inner voice was shouting at me ‘come on it's just 3 minutes you can do it!!’ so in the end, my training is not so hard and still I'm exercising 40 min in total. Maybe after 20 min I'm getting tired and having some pain in my chest, also, no selfies when I run! Too red in the face! How do all those ‘gym girls’ really look so good?!

    Just installed a pedometer app on my phone.  Hoping to walk 10000 steps/day.

    My youngest small person bought me a Fitbit with her precious pennies for Christmas as she knew I had wanted one and wouldn't treat myself. My wee sweetheart. Having it has definitely upped my daily steps. When I'm at work I hit my 10k steps no problem but when I'm at uni I am sat at a desk for hours and hours so i have been going for nightly walks to hit my target and i have actually been really enjoying it.

      @tazzell  That's awesome!  My man got me an Apple Watch for Christmas, and it's had the same effect on me.  The other night I was 20 calories away from the daily goal, so I did lunges in my living room until I made it.  Having something to make tracking goals like that easy is so nice.  Have fun!
