Still faithfully walking, but UGH I see why people start an exercise program and give it up.

I really shouldn't complain at all. Already I am seeing some benefits. For example, we did our monthly grocery run on Saturday, and for the first time in a long time, I wasn't completely wiped out at the end of the trip. I did allow myself an abbreviated walk that day since we do so much walking in the grocery store, but that's the only "cheat" I'm going to allow.

I'm still debating on whether I should go up to six minutes next week. What I've been doing is setting my kitchen timer for five minutes and walking until it goes off then I turn around and come back, so probably I'm walking 10-15 minutes. I intended to increase the time every week, but I'm thinking that I probably shouldn't do any increase until I'm consistently getting the same distance every day, which has NOT yet been the case.

How many days does it take to make something a habit? I'm not there yet, but now that I am starting to accumulate a significant number of days in a row, I do find it helps motivate me because I don't want to break my "streak". It's a pity there isn't really anyone nearby to walk with, that would make it a lot easier.

Rydia continues to hang in there, she has been a total bitch today, but that's actually way more normal, so Ben and I think it's a good sign. ;)
