Well, it’s been somewhat difficult, this week, with ups and downs especially in motivation.
I have been exploring the incredibly richness of SparkPeople in terms of suggestions for exercise and will try to adapt some of them to my way of life. Thank you Sara, for mentioning it to me.
I have also noticed that exercisewise, what doesn’t get done in the morning, just doesn’t get done, period! I’m mostly referring to cardio exercise, in that respect, because steps can be done any time.
Also, I already sort of knew it but what I used to refer to as my morning stretching, is not stretching at all, but rather a way of oiling my joints, so to speak, and maybe working on a bit of flexibility. I can’t live without it, I have timed it and it takes 15mn, done while still in bed. I am not sure what to call it though
Monday: 15mn flexibility exercise, 10500 steps
Tuesday: after a night on the ferry, no time for flexibility exercise, 10100 steps
Wednesday: 15mn flexibility exercise, arms reinforcement: 5×60, 20mn cardio out of 33mn walking/5.5km/h, 11244 steps
Thursday: 15mn flexibility exercise, 10 squats, thighmaster: 10 reps, 45mn cardio walk, 13143 steps
Friday: 15mn flexibility exercise, 10 squats, 30mn cardio part of LS 3miles,it usually takes me longer to get up to the correct heartrate, but this time, I was totally out of shape and my heartrate was too high, so was not really pleased with only getting 30mn cardio, out of 45mn workout! 10242 steps
Walking in summer time is such a pleasure! Here at Bodnant Garden
Saturday: 15mn flexibility exercise, 42mn cardio on elliptical, abs: 2×60 reps, 11,700 steps
Sunday: 15mn flexibility exercise, arms reinforcement: 300 reps, 1kg, 5000 steps. I just managed to run some errands, got back home, intending to get out and get a cardio walk, sat on my couch and … stayed there. Oh well, I do feel better this morning 😉
