Ride my bike trainer for 23 minutes once per week – I have owned a Cyclops bike trainer for at least 8 years and used it maybe ten times. My inlaws gave it to me very thoughtfully to support weightloss efforts and the funny thing is cycling really is the only physical activity I have every had a feeling of joy from. The 23 minutes corresponds to the length of a typical half hour show – because I really want some extra incentive!
I was signed up with the Provincial Bariatric Resource Team of Alberta Health Services for a while and still get their e-newsletter and this good nugget came out a few weeks ago…
Number 1 of 2016 Aspirations + Resolutions #ihatestairs
Walk up the Memorial Park Library Stairs (front) to my office once per week and film it to be able to document my 52 walk-ups #ihatestairs – I work on the second floor and for four years have probably only climbed our main stairs a dozen times. The elevator has always been my friend and I even have a key to it. (I may one day give that up too).
S (specific) – Walk up the front stairs to my office on the 2nd floor
M (measurable) – Once per week
A (achievable) – Definitely
R (realistic) – Much more than I am doing now and not far fetched
T (timely) – Well scheduled and easy to implement
