'Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise'

Excuse the temporary break if you please, I was busy the last couple of days with extra evening lessons. Unfortunately they've also mean that I didn't get my exercise the last couple of days. My goal was to exercise 5 days a week, which is now impossible as the most I would be able to manage would be 4.

If I were to exercise five times this week, rather than five days, do you think I could still count that as meeting my exercise goals for the week? Or should I be strict with myself and only give myself a badge when I stay with my plans to the letter, and just be happy with the fact that I got a decent amount of workouts in? Thoughts from the interwebs please.

I'm going to do my first workout for the day, and then I'll get back to checking your blogs I promise. I have been reading them, but I need to go back over and comment.

I say you get your badge...5 exercise sessions are 5 exercise sessions, whether you do them on five different days or 5 different've burnt pretty much the same number of calories. And it takes extra effort to figure out how to adjust and accomodate your schedule instead of making excuses. Way to go!

I agree - 5 sessions is sticking to plan. We have to be a bit flexible otherwise we'll just say "I've failed" throw our hands in the air and give up all together!!
