I’ve decided to revamp my blog by taking part in this year’s Blogging from A-Z Challenge. Ok, so I’m a day late, but there’s no letter for Sunday, so I guess I can do yesterday’s post today instead. So here goes…

A is for Activity

Yes, I know, I haven’t been very active with the old blog for a while. My last challenge was a bit too… well, challenging I suppose. But that’s ok. Although I haven’t been doing much running lately, I have been using the exercise bike and doing some intervals on the old treadmill, so I have been active at least.

In saying that, I haven’t been quite as active as I could be. In fact, I’ve been pretty damn lazy. So, I’ve decided to set myself some goals to become a bit more active – not Lands End to John O’ Groats active, but more active than I am at the moment, so it’s all good.

5 Activity Goals:

  1. Run or run/walk for 30 minutes at least once a week
  2. Use the exercise bike for 30 minutes at least twice a week
  3. Get off the train a stop earlier at least once a week for a 25 minute walk home
  4. Take a 1 hour walk every Sunday
  5. Spend half an hour working in the garden at least twice a week

Well, it’s a start and hopefully a more achievable challenge to make sure I keep active.

How active are you? What small steps can you take each week to increase your activity levels? Please share your thoughts in the comments.

    Excellent goals. Attainable and apt to get you to do a little more, although they will definitely do you good if that’s all you do. I have set myself a more grandiose goal of running the Utica Boilermaker 15K. I guess “grandiose” is a big word; it’s not a marathon and I’ve run it before. But a goal is a goal, and for me the definitely help. Rock on!
