Happy November!

Friday, November 01, 2013

My favorite time of year continues. I was afraid yesterday's wind and rain--created appropriate gloominess for Halloween--would strip most leaves from the trees, but this morning the sun is shining on beautiful colors, still.
I know I need to take a rest day once in awhile, but then I "feel bad" about not exercising. I know movement, NEAT from SparkSolutions, is good for me, but it just isn't the same as the focused 30 minutes I spend on the treadmill. I do feel better after that 30 minutes, so I guess I've trained my mind to tell my body that.
And I'm o.k. with that. I'm going to give this current pace about 2 more weeks and then push it up some mphs. And maybe add 5 minutes to start with; maybe 10 more by end of year.
ANDDDDDD......I know, I know, I need to be adding strength training to all this. On cardio "rest" days, maybe I could do that for the 30 minutes, even though fitbit won't be smiling as much.

    Great job!
    Your Fitbit won't smile as much but you can enter your exercise on the Spark fitness tracker and rack up those min.
    There are some great Spark ST videos. emoticon
