This way lies madness... but maybe a gentle madness... [Jan. 4th, 2012|05:29 pm]
So, on January 1st, I got a bit silly. I wanted to exercise, because if I did, then I'd have a perfect exercise record - 100% of all days in the year in which I did some exercise.

On January 2nd, I exercised again, because kightp had gone home and I often need a bit of a mood boost after that. Plus, why interfere with a perfect record?

That's worked out through today, the fourth - I'm 4 for 4.

Now, I'm starting to wonder... what are my rules going to be? At least 20 minutes? The standard is 20 minutes of exercise to develop better aerobic fitness. But there's something to be said for the good-try workout - get ready to work out, decide after 2-3 minutes that it just ain't working, and stopping. And what am I shooting for? 100% isn't realistic - a single day of illness can spoil that. But shooting too low kind of ruins the point of keeping track. On the other hand, I'm working a lousy shift - I have to work out before work, and I'm very jealous of my post-wakeup/pre-work time. And... sigh.

I think I'm just going to track my percentage for a while and see how it goes.
