Work at your own pace and do what you need to improve your health and fitness. If you think that people around you are pushing harder, that's fine for them. They're not you and they don't understand your present condition. Slow, steady progress that suits you is what this is all about. On the 1st, put on those workout clothes and do it for you. On the 5th and 6th, people may want to talk about what they're doing or why. Listen and share, but don't feel compelled to join that dance or yoga class unless it calls to you. Be determined on the 10th and maybe put in more steps or time in the weight room. Feeling good about yourself? Get and give some smart advice on the 16th and 17th. Don't slow down on the 18th and don't skip that workout unless you must. Pamper your knees and ankles, though. Feel better? Stronger? Work hard on the 22nd and feel even better on the 23rd. Get outdoors on the 26th and 27th. Tennis anyone? A walk on the beach or another beautiful place? Enjoy the sun and fresh air. On the 29th, end the month as you started it: for you!
