I recently realized that when I joined our local YMCA my exercise went down. Before I joined the Y, I was using a Wii Game called the My Fitness Coach and exercising for 15 minutes almost every morning.
When we got our Y membership I was thrilled with all the options. Swimming, a walking track, exercise bikes, ellipticals, treadmills, a bunch of classes. Except life keeps getting in the way. Ooo... boxfit's this Thursday evening. Oh... teenage daughter has a dentist appointment at the same time and can't sign the paperwork. And it's easy after working on my feet for 8 hours to say "I've had enough exercise today, I'll go next week". Not to say we never get to the Y, we're usually there twice a week. But a 45 minute long session and half an hour on the elliptical don't add up to seven 15 minute sessions. And usually isn't every week.
Two days ago I bought myself a new exercise mat and ball from our local Shoppers Drug Mart and, starting yesterday morning, I decided I am going to exercise for 15 minutes a morning every morning PLUS hit the Y on both Monday and Thursday for Bars & Plates and Boxfit. I'm dragging my teenage son with me (teenage daughter has a knee injury and won't get dragged until we sort out exactly what's wrong with her knee). Anything else we get done at the Y will be a bonus.
What are you doing for exercise?
