Let's try this again

If you set goals for yourself, and you're like a lot of other people, you probably realize it's not that your goals are physically impossible that's keeping you from achieving them; it's that you lack the self-discipline to stick to them. It's physically possible to lose weight. It's physically possible to exercise more. - Daniel Goldstein
New week, blank slate. I'm going to start off with the assumption that I am going to either find or take the time out of my work day to exercise.

Exercise du jour:
Morning: 15 minutes elliptical -- done. finally. Kept putting it off, then I thought, "If I miss this, I'll have to write 'fail' on the blog. So I did it. Accountability FTW!
Noon: 30 minutes yard work -- done
Afternoon: 60 minutes elliptical -- done!
Evening: 15 minutes stretching -- argh! No good reason. I got distracted and forgot. I promise to stretch instead Tuesday.

Accountability is the only way anything gets done. Even scooping the cat boxes is only because i'm accountable to the cats (you know who runs this house, right?).

Go, you! I've just finished supper, and in half an hour I'm going to get on the stationary bike and see if my foot, which survived work with very little pain, can stand a few minutes of pushing a pedal. Of course, I won't actually know until tomorrow, which is what makes this so frustrating.

Yay! Good job, Mary Anne! I hope the foot doesn't complain too much.

Messymimi, my little cat thinks that's exactly the way it should be.
