This time around I decided that I was sticking to it no matter what, and I did. If you're super sore the next day, go out and move a little bit to take the edge off, but nothing really strenuous.
    Good advice. I am committed to at least 66 days, 5 exercises 2 days a week. Arbitrary numbers, those...but that's my plan.

    Also, take a look at stumptuous.com if you're not already familiar with it - lots of great video and instructions for basic body weight exercises, especially for women. I like the Less Thinking, More Doing Starter Program.
