Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
I hadn’t quite settled on my New Year’s resolution type goals last week, but I have now. As I said last week, I want to be stronger. The exercise foundation that I have to build on is that I exercise every day (my current streak goes back to July 1). Many days, that’s a walk.
So, my new addition is that I do a strength-training workout or stretching every day. That’s helped me increase my exercise minutes, too. When the walk is short due to the weather or a busy schedule, I’ll choose a longer workout DVD.
I’m currently ahead of schedule to exercise 1200 minutes in January. And, so far, I’m meeting my goal to add strength-training or stretching to my routine every day.
How is your exercise going so far in the New Year?
