I did it.... 365 straight days of exercise

I started right when the Pandemic really broke out and toilet paper was being scooped in mass quantities at the grocery stores.

Even when I had to travel I still got in at least a quick mile of running in my schedule. ( we just got back a few hours ago from the Disney Resort called Aulani in Honolulu, HI. for 7 days and managed to squeeze it in )

Anyway, not trying to toot my horn but after 2 hip replacements less than 4 years ago...well if I can do it so can you.

Cheers

    That is impressive! Takes real dedication to push yourself on days when it's easy to find excuses to 'skip' a day.

    First, well done.

    Second...
    I want to introduce my own exercise program. I do it every day and haven't missed a day in years.

    Every day;

    20 minutes of mirror looking. 120 calories burned.

    25 minute of bragging. 130 calories burned.

    Maybe a hour of typing, trying to prove how superior I am (Very stable genius). So...another 300 calories burned (because typing is exercise).

    On Monday, I spend between 3 and 4PM blaming others for my mistakes. I don't know how many calories that burns, but I know I feel better when I'm done.

    20 minutes a day chasing my cats...20 minutes a day hiding from my cats. An hour a day petting my cats. An hour of sleep lost because...well, my cats. (That one's actually true)

    Eating must burn at least 500 calories a day, I'm doing it constantly.

    And there you have it. Oh, and highjacking threads.....10 minutes a day.

      At least you have a few muscles in your arms, snow shovels are quite heavy.

    Good job.

    I'm lucky if I can last 365 minutes after setting a goal these days before life kicks me in the nether regions. The struggle is real. And the nether regions hurt.

    Keep it up. Don't do like many people do when they reach a goal - they stop to celebrate and lose all their gains.

    Congratulations and thanks for the info. I will be coming round your street with a giant electro-magnet on the back of a truck. You may find yourself coming out to take a look faster than you imagined.

    I so love it when people invest time in their pussies.

    Two an' a half hours a day dedicated to non-world-dom stuffs is a huge outlay for a Capricorn.

    You must love those guys very much.

    That's great! I have just started exercising, and if I do 365 days, I will best proud of myself What is your nutrition plan? What supplements do you prefer? I would like to learn more. I like those vitamins and supplements from Canadian pharmacy a lot, for example. And I am really sure that you will find something good for you there too, good luck!

    Nice to hear that you are taking care of what really matters in life, which is our health.
    When I am traveling, it helps me to pack a skipping rope for a 20-minute workout.

      Good for you - and just ignore those strange looks from the other bus passengers.
