Yep - today was day 730 of my 10-minute daily exercise streak. I guess, officially, tomorrow will be 2 FULL years since last year was a leap year. I'm going by the standard 365 days in a year and that makes it today as my 2 year streak!
I've slugged through busy times, not-so-busy times, bad weather, early dark days of winter and heat of summer and managed to get in at least 10 minutes of exercise every day. During that time I've trained for several
I've jumped rope, used my gazelle, exercise videos, lifted weights, mowed the lawn, raked leaves, done gardening, walked, ran and just about anything I can think of without going to the pool (dropped our pool membership this summer) or the gym (can't afford a membership right now). I'm not very good about exercising in a group setting, anyway, but I hope to get a chance to challenge myself and work up the courage to change that about me.
I got up today from a not-so-restful sleep (due to that stupid coughing!) and got a big stock pot of homemade vegetable beef soup going. While the fresh veggies were cooking away I went out to walk for 49 minutes. My 30-day skinny jeans challenge was to do cardio for 45-60 minutes today. I did my 50 jumping jacks at work during the night so I had that out of the way already. I set my SparkActivity tracker to glowing, though, so I got another GlowGetter trophy today for getting more than 10,000 steps!
So, even though I'm not feeling good I had a pretty awesome day overall!
Spark on and be happy, dear friends!
