Did my 10 minute scheduled walk this morning.
The Active Health stats:
Pace - 20 min mile
Calories burned - 49
Steps - 1222
A slight improvement on yesterday. I have about a week or ten days more of just ten-minute walks, then he slips the occasional 15-min one in. I love that this is such a gradual build-up. I am also really glad I have started from the four-week warm up rather than jumping straight into the 52-weeks. It is giving me a chance to try out different directions, and different times of the morning to see what feels best for me.
Did Day 2 of the 28 day Bootcamp. I managed far better with the moves than I expected. I haven't seen any of the videos prior to working through them, so this first week is a daily surprise to me. :-)
I plan to make up my steps to at least 3000 (4400 if I can manage it) by dance jogging on my mini trampoline to any suitable songs that play on my favourites playlist. It is pretty windy and showery today, and a lot colder than I expected so I think a home-day is in order.
Chest still sore today, could really feel it while exercising, but I am coping. I am lucky in that I don't suffer as badly with it as some with Tietze's do. These flare-ups usually diminish after a few days, and my doc tells me that exercise is good for me in spite of it. I just have to be careful not to make moves that pull on the cartilage too much. This is why I walk a lot and only use light weights at the moment.
I weighed myself when I went to bed last night - 13 stone 9 1/4 lbs. That is 3 and a 1/2 pounds up on the morning. That settles it. I am weighing in first thing from here on in. This morning the scale said 13 stone 6 1/4 lbs. It will mean that unless I go crazy this week, my weigh in on Sunday will look damn impressive! Don't fire me Slowest Losers!
Five points on the Sparkwheel today.
Right, I am terribly behind with my sparking, so I am going to try and get caught up a bit today.
Take care all. Have a great day in Sparkland!
