I've exercised 8 whole days in a row... and I know I'll be exercising tonight. What about taking a break?
I'm not good at taking breaks. To me, taking a break is like quitting. Quitting, I'm good at. Trust me. If I slack off tonight, it makes it that much easier for me to slack off tomorrow too. Then, hey, it is Monday and who likes a Monday? Then on Tuesday I might walk a little... but Wednesday is Leverage on the TV, and Thursday is Burn Notice on USA. Then by Friday I'll feel like an asshole, get a couple of gallons of beer, and drink my blues away.
Even walking every day isn't enough for me. I have to push. I have doubled the length of my walks, and I plan on taking one day a week and seeing how fast I can walk a set distance. I'm going to start working some very light jogging into those "speed walks" as I get in better shape. I get bored otherwise... I do! So, I turn it into a numbers game. I walk so far in so much time, so in order to shave one minute off of the total time I need to take 10 seconds off of each of 6 sections of the walk. Helps me stay focused... if you aren't moving forward, you're moving backward.
So, take a break? Not fucking likely. If I don't restrain myself, I'm going to add a third lap around the block.
