I've been really bad about exercising for the last few years, but part of my problem is that my weight never changes. In fact, it seems to only go up and I get very discouraged. So, pregnancy is a great time to get my exercise program going because scale watching is not the goal. The goal is to be in shape for labor in 8+ months.
Here is my latest plan that may just work (please, oh please): I am going to see if I can get a few of my friends, who live near me, to commit to walking with me at least once a week. If it works the way I envision it, I'll have a friend (or more) to walk with each day. In fact, even my husband has agreed to one day! My rationale is that if I combine a healthy activity with something I really enjoy (friendships), I might actually follow through.
I got this idea a while back. CLICK HERE to see my initial inspirtation from a blog post titled "Is Will Power Biased?"
