Getting back on track with exercise
Tuesday, March 06, 2012
I've been on my new exercise challenge about a week, and I am pretty pleased with my progress. I've started to refine some eating habits and my water drinking is up (as tends to happen when I exercise regularly). Here's a recap.
Tues 2/28 (my bday) - got 30 mins gazelle - not bad since hubby worked late so I couldn't start til close to 10pm
Weds 2/29 - I took this day off work because I had to take daughter to appts in the morning. Then I took son with me and went to visit J, so we could hang out, and our kids could play together. After hubby collected son, I went with J and his wife to their gym, and got in a solid 30 mins on the elliptical, as well as about 25 mins ST. I felt great after this!
Thurs 3/1 - I didn't do much today - just 10 mins gazelle. But by evening I was feeling the after effect of my ST from the day before, encouraging me to stick with it.
Fri 3/2 - I did my ST at work (sets of wall push ups and squats), and that was it. Not terribly proud of that.
Sat 3/3 - Got in 20 mins gazelle and 25 mins ST, so a better day for fitness.
Sun 3/4 - I did nothing - I had the rare opportunity to spend time with J kid free and I took it. I have no regrets.
Mon 3/5 - even though I was operating on roughly 2.5 hrs of sleep from the night before, I made myself do the gazelle for 15 mins, and got my 25 mins ST.
Tonight I plan to shoot for at least 30 mins gazelle once hubby's home from trivia. Trying to get back into the M/W/F ST and daily cardio habit. I KNOW I feel so much better when I get regular exercise. So let's see if I can keep this up the rest of the month.
