The woes of exercising

This year I have an aim to exercise more, eat better, and lose weight – not by being outrageous but by being sensible.

But …

Have you noticed that once you start exercising (walking for me) that you very quickly increase your stamina and recovery time so that it takes longer to get the type of exercise you need? We are using our Apple Watch/iPhone Activity monitor to achieve certain move, exercise, and stand goals. We walk all over the place but have one regular walk that’s close to home.


We like this walk because there are so many alternatives for us but regularly do an out to the 2km mark and back. But it’s almost become too easy even though it’s the walk that will be easy to maintain once I’m back at work full time. Sigh.
