Exercise Goals

I’ve never been the most active person, but since getting asthma, exercising is a must for me. I’ve heard many times now about the importance of strengthening my lung capacity. I was doing well at first; however, like a lot of good intentions, after a while I fell out of practice. Fast forward to recently, I’m starting over with trying to form this habit.

End goal: for regular exercise to become habitual and last for the long-term.

I thought a good way to accomplish this goal, and to be accountable to someone, would be to blog about it.

So here I am… actually on Day 6 right now, because the idea of blogging about my goals only recently crossed my mind.  I thought it would be best to post sooner rather than later, before I lost my mojo.

Besides my body being sore, it’s going well. I’ve mostly been using an elliptical, today though I wanted to switch it up and do some weight lifting instead. I know strength training is good and healthy to do, so my dad was kind enough to guide me through some different exercises to strengthen my back and arms.

Though I am sore and tired, I’m sure that’s normal when you’re just starting out. However, I’m hopeful and optimistic for the future. If I put in the effort, I’m sure to succeed! How do you like to stay fit and active? What helps you stay on track and motivates you to keep exercising?
