One of those days
Today was one of those days. Though it is only past 7PM, I hope it is not too late to start walking. I usually walk in the back yard. It is a large enough space to walk plus walking is such a good workout. I have already made plans to walk. As of right now, I planned to walk 12 minutes today. I also record my heart rates before and after I exercise. I also and will continue to do so, often record the speed at which I walk. My goal is to walk at least 2 miles/hour. Sometimes I do. Sometimes I don't. I also record the number of steps at which I walk. I realize that 2000 isn't a whole lot of steps in the course of a day, but 2000 steps should be the average of a 12 minute workout. I made these plans because I have not only made similar plans before, but I also realize that I have been too hard on myself. This was based on having the all-or-nothing mindset that I had. Losing weight is hard, but having PCOS and having such a mindset will prove an even bigger challenge. It will be worth it overcoming these two very issues.
