It's now August and I've done pretty well with my exercise resolution, managing my exercise routine without a break until I fell sick in April with a doozy of the flu that knocked me about for 3 weeks. Since then I've had a few breaks from exercise as I've succumbed to winter colds (pretty bad this year despite the mild winter) but have kept up in between and on those days I wasn't feeling too bad.
