How’d You Move?
Anyone out there remember December’s comment commit?
Comment Commit is a forum for supporting each other in our exercise/healthy living goals and ambitions. It’s a way to give myself-and you-a little accountability, recognition, and a place to brag a bit about our accomplishments.
I have set some lofty exercise goals for this month and I would love your help accomplishing them. You can help me by leaving a comment with your exercise plans/goals for the week. Seeing your motivation to move will help motivate me to move, and hopefully visa versa!
We will set our goals on Mondays throughout June and check back in on Fridays to acknowledge all of our valiant effort.
It’s super simple to participate. On Mondays I will state my weekly goals in a post and you submit your own goals in a comment to that post. Same same on Fridays except here we will brag about our accomplishments or lament about our obstacles.
In fact, identifying obstacles is part of the game. Did you set realistic goals or was it in a Monday morning fog when you decided a triathlon a day sounded doable? Do you need to workout in the morning because it’s too easy to get distracted later in the day? Do you try to do certain activities because you know it’s good for you but actually you despise it and in turn end up skipping out?
Identifying obstacles each week will help us set realistic and attainable goals, resulting in a sense of accomplishment rather than a sense of falling short.
Since it’s Friday I thought we’d start this thing out on the upswing. What movement goals did you accomplish this week? Even if you didn’t set specific goals on Monday I think most regular exercises have a sense of their workout week.
I had great 20-30 minute strength training sessions on Monday and Wednesday, sweaty 4.5 mile runs on Tuesday and Thursday, quick Pilates workouts Monday and Thursday, and 20 minute yoga sessions Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I really enjoyed all of these workouts and with the exception of Tuesday’s run (too hot!) they left me feeling energized, strong, healthy, and happy.
Today I will run, practice yoga, and strength train for a combined workout of just over an hour. Tomorrow is active rest; whitewater rafting in West Virginia! Tate and I are hauling a few carloads of Cville friends back to our old stomping grounds for an outdoorsy weekend (we got together while we were both working as raft guides in Fayetteville, WV-in the ’90s!). Sunday’s workout plan is run + yoga.
How’d you move this week? Tell me all about it!
