Sticking to goals without much support makes it hard to keep with the workouts. Just dropped my goal from 5 days a week to 3. Hopefully it can go back up once I get something figured out

Hey... maybe you should have started your goal at 3 days a week then pushed for 5. Right now im on the 3 days week and then by next week ill go up to 4.

I probably should've. I used to run 5 days a week a couple years ago. I thought I could just start back up again. Thanks!

You could always look for support with super nice people on here who are more than happy to help/motivate.
Follow good people on here and most of them will follow you back and help you in working out more. 3 days are better than none and go for early morning light yoga daily that way you'll feel much better and workout almost 6 days a week. Ranging from 12 to 25 minutes. . Hope this helps

I know how you feel! I used to be very active but have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I used to be very active, but the pain has hindered me a lot. I used to walk daily and now I walk with a cane on my bad days. Like you I want be more active, but I struggle each and every day. Without the support I put it off and one day leads to two and before I know it a week has gone by. Side effects of the medication is weight gain and I'm really struggling with that right now. Then I get upset with myself and I want to just give up, but I have 5 kids that look up to me, I need to lead by example.
