Week of 12/3
Thurs: core challenge 10 min; weights 15 min
Fri: 25 min low impact cardio; 10 min core challenge
I love how rosey my cheeks are after my cardio this morning. I did most of the exercises (some of them, such as side kicks, you are standing on one foot...I can't do that with this ankle) but the ones I wasn't able to actually do to form, I kept moving for the prescribed time and did work up a nice sweat.
core challenge was what it was! I did it immediately after the cardio, and was a little wobbly in the arms for the hovers, and even the bird dogs I was shaking and had to adjust a bit. I did complete it, though.
feels good. Feels STRONG.
Sat: none (quite busy/active, but never got my heart rate up to speak of)
Sun: 10 min core challenge; 12 min low impact cardio; 10 min weights
there. Got that out of the way.
but I have some joyful activity today, getting my house ready for company, with the St Nick Feast coming up! yay! that'll be some good activity, the kind I really like, the kind that is accomplishing something that needs to be done: thorough cleaning of the house, making soup, twice baked tatties, berry muffins, and putting up decorations. now THAT is the kind of exercise I can dig.
Mon: core challenge for 10 min; deep clean front room for 30 min. 30 min job coaching up and down stairs at an apartment bldg.
Tue: core challenge 10 min.
Wed: snow shoveling for 45 min; core challenge 10 min.
my totals for this week:
about 200 minutes of exercise...
the goal will be to increase my activity levels. Formal exercise or not, I will have to get moving in general. Wish walking were in.
