Shakin' it!

Thursday, August 23, 2012

My hands are still bugging me a bit from the surgeries in June and July so I haven't re-started the C25K program yet. I jog with my little guy in a stroller so I need to wait until I can push it consistently for at least 40 minutes before I try again. I'll give it a trial run next week to see how long I can run and to see if I can hang on to the stroller properly while jogging at my breakneck speed - haha!

Yesterday I started one of my new goals. Ten minutes of daily exercise. This is on top of my regular cardio workouts. I do lots of walking, but I really don't do anything on my "off" days. My goal is to do at least 10 minutes of strength training, pilates, yoga, belly dancing, swimming or cycling each day. I did a quick belly dancing session yesterday and today and it felt fantastic! I forgot how good it feels to practice my moves. My hips feel looser already!

Another one of my goals is a week long weight loss challenge. I haven't been consistent with my eating, so I'm going to do my best to lose a pound or two this week and to keep it off instead of losing/gaining/losing/gaining like I have been for the past couple of months. I also desperately want to fit into some of my old smaller clothes and to fit into the running skirt that I bought last month. I thought it would be the right size, but it's a wee bit tight around the top. A loss of five pounds would probably be enough to make it fit better. I'm determined to get there this time!

    You're doing the right things...moving and watching your eating. Keep it up!
    I'm sure belly dancing is great exercise!
