    All you can do is what you can do. Being realistic when it comes to exercise is the smart and safe way. There is pushing yourself and then there is overdoing it. :goodvibes There have been months when I could do 2000+ and months when I am lucky to get 1000. It is important to be flexible and listen to your body. Some months are big numbers and some months are smaller numbers, both are good! :)

    well said! :)

    I wanted to also comment on how many people said there goals are small. I totally get where the sentiment is coming from, and there have definitely been times when I could have pushed myself harder, but if you set a realistic goal where you know you will have to work hard, but not overdo it, then that is the right goal for you. We can celebrate each other's successes no matter what the number.:goodvibes

    I'm going to give this a whirl for the first time. No time like the present, right? I'll say 700... A good place to start. Maybe. :)

    I am trying to start the month off strong, well actually I've been up since 2:45 thinking about work. When I knew I ├žouldn't turn my brain off and fall back to sleep after an hour and a half, I got up and got on the treadmill for 40 minutes.

    I couldn't have put it better myself!:cheer2:

    Starting off the month with a weight gain (sigh):sad1:, but I did manage to get the butt out of bed and hit the elliptical at 5am :scared:. So let's start with 35 elliptical minutes and 10 for PT exercises. Thinking about a lunchtime walk, but I do have a 15 mile run planned for tomorrow. Still debating...:confused3
