Exercise for August 27, 2013

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Body really didn't complain this morning, which I was thankful for.
Today I pedaled for 30 minutes .... 5 more than yesterday. Didn't feel as tired when I got to 25 minutes, so I went to 30.
did my 20 jumping jacks.
20 squats. I broke these up in two sets of 10. I always wonder if I'm going low enough. ... today I was watching TV while doing them so I turned to face the TV and my bottom would just barely touch the coffee table ..... PERFECT!! Now I know to face the TV and use the coffee table as my stopper ... or goer. My legs were asking what I was doing, and if I was crazy. .... I politely ignored them.
push ups ....... I got smart today. I broke them up too. and guess what??? I did 10!! probably not in the best of form, kind of all chicken winged but that's the only way I can even do one. ..... So when I can do more I will work on getting the right form. I know you're supposed to do right form first then go for numbers. I have never been able to do them right .... never! My arms are talking to me so I guess that means that I have used them.
Yesterday I ended up with 5723 steps. right now I got 2743. and just like yesterday, I got some errands to run. ...... Little bloody buggers broke my finch bird feeder. ... I like my finches. so that means that I will have to replace the broken one now or not have my finches ..... bloody little buggers! squirrels .... and I like them too and I feed them too. but they didn't have to break the feeder. bloody little buggers. .... so I should get in my steps again today.

Hope you are having a wonderful day, stay cool!

    Way to go Becky! That is the way to do it, just increase slowly and keep on going!

As far as squats, you shouldn't go lower than quadriceps parallel to the ground. If you go lower you could injure your knees or if you already have knee problems only go down as far as you can without knee pain.

Keep up the great work!! Before you know it you will be able to do all of the reps in the proper form! WooHoo!!

    Building up little by little is the best way to do it!
