Links to Jessica Smith Workouts on YouTube

Tuesday, September 01, 2015

One of today's articles about power walking indoors led to a link for a 30 minute workout by Jessica Smith posted on YouTube. It was a great exercise and I was thrilled that even with my limited physical capacity I was able to do most of it.

The thing that STINGS was that there was no way on SparkPeople to track the calories you burned. After all that hard work I want some credit. That's what keeps me motivated. I had to choose the closest SP exercise listed in the fitness section.

I mean isn't that what this program is all about?? How can we support each other without praise? Does anybody else feel like this or am I just needy?

Until I get a wearable fitness tracker I will have to stick to what is listed on SP. I have a birthday coming up and I've let my DH know I want a Fitbit or a Treadmill. Think he'll take the hint (more like a knock up side the head) lol emoticon emoticon

    Agreed. It would be great if all workout video's posted could be linked to workout tracking. I know I have seen the option on some of the video's so why not all?

    I really like Jessica Smith! First video I tried was the HIIT Low Impact ....I start out by walking 30 minutes and then doing the 6 minute high intensity interval training workout.

    That's encouraging that you could do it. I think I might have to try it too. It is frustrating that there aren't more options on the fitness tracker. Sparkpeople does often include tracking for their own videos, so keep that in mind too.

    Great work getting the exercise in. I need to go check that out, I usually do LS dvds. I've had to substitute other workouts as well. We just have to make do. I figure it's close anyway. :)
