Today was the first time in a long time that I've used weights in a workout due to a wrist injury. It felt fine at the time (just cooling down now) but I will probably ice it just in case after I take a shower. I feel strong, so I hope I'm abl... Read more
Day 27 and 28
Yesterday I didn't do a "real" workout, I just counted my being busy and running around with my daughter. We went to a splashpark in the morning, stopped by the playground before we left, and then I feel like we did something in the afternoon t... Read more
Day 25 and 26
Yesterday we had to drop of DH's computer at the Apple store and the soonest appointment was in Georgretown. We'd never been before. The neighborhood was nice and looked like it'd be fun to walk around, had it not been so hot! I counted the wa... Read more
I am making a case for simply being out in heat as exercise. I did "play" a game of softball today, very loosely defined, because I did not do much. I am 32 and played softball (or any kind of base/soft/t-ball type game at all!) for the first ti... Read more
Two days ago, I realized I hadn't worked out after having a glass of wine.
I did 10 minutes of cardio kick... Read more
Days 19 and 20
Yesterday I did a Jessica Smith barre video. Today they (finally) finished the repairs on our place from last week's burst pipe, so I wasn't feeling up to doing a lot due to paint fumes. I walked in place for ten minutes. That's what the ten-... Read more
Today I did an actual workout!
I did a fifteen minute Jessica Smith ab workout. I have a hard time w... Read more
Days 15, 16, 17
Phew. I'm off track. There's a reason, but it shouldn't be an excuse!
The pipe that burst in our upstairs neighbor's apartment is still being fixed. We can no longer get to our shower, because there's a big plastic-sheeting "duct" connec... Read more
Days 13 and 14
Yesterday we woke up to an unexpected surprise--puddles of water in the kitchen and bathroom, the water shut off, and we didn't notice until much later, soaked carpet in my daughter's room.
Good morning! ... Read more
In case you didn't know already, I love Jessica Smith workouts. I have some of her DVDs but I'm usually more inclined to go with her YouTube videos.
I did a 27-minute barre video this morning. Felt great! 12 days out of 100! Not that I pl... Read more
Days 9, 10, 11
Today I did my first "real" workout in a few days, but no guilt. My only requirement for my 100 days of exercise is that I get *some* kind of activity, ten minutes, and that's it.
Today I did a twenty-plus minute Jessica Smith barre video.... Read more
Day 7 and 8
OK, the truth is, I haven't worked out yet today, day 8. But if I say I'm going to, I have to be accountable to that!
Yesterday was my daughter's birthday. We had a pretty low-key day (her party was last weekend) but we did walk up the hi... Read more
Days 5 and 6
I might as well make it official. I'm revisiting my 100-day challenge to myself, where I get ten minutes of exercise every day for 100 days. Most days I usually do more, but the "it's only 10 minutes" makes it easier to be consistent.

Today I did a twenty-minute Jessica Smith walking video. Yesterday was an active rest day, because it was my daughter's birthday, so there was certainly plenty of movement with going to the pool, setting up her party, walking back and forth cha... Read more
