I have been doing my morning stretch, done when I get out of bed, since 2007. I think that counts. (OK, I would like to add some other things, but I think I will wait til 2014 to do that.) Anyway, I have decided that I want to add “draw a web comic” to my list of 43 Things, and I have to mark something done. (Maybe I will come back to this, keeping a “food gournal,” etc.) 9 months ago
How I did it: I have tried lots of things over the last few years (well its much longer than that really). For me the two things which are consistently giving me the most pleasure AND being done regularly are animal care and gardening. Both get me outside and moving about quite happily and without stress. I tried other things but it always felt like hard work. I may try Tai Chi again too...but because my pets have to be carried for and I want my garden to look nice - I have extra motivation.

Still have not moved beyond the morning stretch, but I am starting to think maybe I should just be happy with that. Actually, I have started expanding the stretching routine by ONE additional stretch, some days, so maybe that is enough. 12 months ago
I do have a small stretching routine, and I do some very small bit of cycling. But, I am looking for something in addition to the stretching that is slightly more vigorous and might include some hand/eye or body co-ordination. Not sure what, just yet.
But, I like that this goal (“thing”?) is general enough and flexible enough to accomodate some searching for the right exercise. 22 months ago
I really don't like exercise...but when I was a kid it wasn't too bad. Any ideas on how to fool myself into exercising even though I don't want to? 22 months ago
