For me, the parameters are:
- Minimum 15 minutes/day
- Exercise can be anywhere from walking the dog, to using the elliptical, working out with a DVD or On Demand show, weights, etc. In other words, it doesn't matter what it is, as long as it happens.
- It must be dedicated exercise. Going to Costco and pushing the massively heavy cart all over the store doesn't count. Yes, it burns calories, but that kind of rationalization is a slippery slope for my creative excuse making.
- No excuses! Rain, shine, sore muscles, too busy, don't "feel like it" are not valid.
BTW, I will not be posting pictures of myself in exercise clothes.
