Are you up for a 10 minute challenge?

Ten Minute Challenge

Thanks to Chubby Chick at Journeying to Lose 200 Pounds, I've decided to join her in this challenge.

I am so "all or nothing" when it comes to exercise. This is strange because I am not like that about anything else in my life. I believe in baby steps, I believe in something is better than nothing, I believe in one day at a time, I believe in little things add up to big things...but not in exercise.

So this is going to be my challenge to myself to do 10 minutes of exercise every morning or evening, no matter what OTHER exercise I may do. I'm either going to do 10 minutes on the treadmill or 10 minutes stepping. For stepping I just do use my bottom step of our stairway in the house. It's a good height for me, I'm only 5' tall and I find that actual "steppers" are too high for me and although I know its good to challenge myself to step higher, feeling like I'm going to fall everytime I step up and down is not conducive to keeping at it!

Want to join me (us)? 10 minutes a day is nothing! I spend more time than that in the shower, more time than that on my blog, more time than that making dinner, more time than that putting away groceries....I *am* worth 10 minutes a day just for me, and so are YOU :)

  1. Hi, Enz! I'm SO glad you joined in the 10 minute exercise challenge! And I really love how you listed things that you do for MORE than 10 minutes each day. Really puts things in perspective, doesn't it?

    I really believe this extra 10 minutes of activity each day is going to benefit us. And before long... I bet we'll have so much energy we'll want to move on to 15 or 20 minutes... or even more!

    Good luck! I'm sure you'll do great! :)
