This week, I had a “Zumba Beginner Recommendation” goal to work out 5 times. Today is the 5th time I should exercise this week, and it’s not looking good for the home team, meaning I’ll end up having exercised 4x this week, not 5.
Of course, being extremely competitive (especially when it comes to myself), my first and initial thought when I made the decision that I am going take a nap when Zach goes down for his nap today, instead of doing my Zumba, was that I failed the week in this area.
Rightfully so, the thought was fleeting. I went right into, “Hey, now wait a minute. I went from exercising ZERO times a week to exercising 4 times this week – that’s not a failure – that’s a success!” 🙂
So now I’m curious – how many times (on average) do YOU exercise a week? Is there generally a difference between what you shoot for and what you actually do?
I used to think that a good goal was to exercise 3x/week. With that being said, the Zumba beginners plan calls for 5x and they only go up from there. Is 3x/week outdated and not enough?
I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts on this one, because until today, I guess I haven’t really given it much thought.
Have a great weekend everyone!
