Claude – rainy week in Paris

I’ve had a difficult week as I started a bladder infection, which I thought was better, it came back with a vengeance and I had to go to the doctor’s last Friday. So I’m a bit late in posting.

I started a new morning programme with strength exercise from SparkPeople and rather like that it makes a change.

One of the things I find difficult with exercise is monotony and in a way, you always go back to the same stuff. So between Leslie Sansone, taking walks outside, the elliptic and the stuff I find at SparkPeople, I do get variety
Here’s my record for the week from August 9 2010 to August 15 2010

Monday:15mn flexibility ex, 2x15reps single leg squats with chair, 2x15reps wall pushups, 2x15reps boxer, abs 3×20 reps crunches, 3×20 reps reverse crunches, 40mn cardio walking, 11800steps

    Gah! What an amazing week! And you with a bladder infection. Maybe take a rest day sometime, you?
    I will have to look on there and see what “boxer” is! One nice thing about sparkpeople is that there are so many exercises to choose from, you could vary your routine infinitely. I have yet to settle on one thing but I do like the close position pushups on the wall – am working up to the regular wall pushups – pushups have always been very hard for me!
    Woo hoo, you! Applause!

    • The bladder infection hit with a revenge this week and maybe not so much the infection than the antibiotics. I did manage to keep walking this week but cardio… except for today, wasn’t all that good

    Single leg squats! 30 of them! Oh my, that’s impressive.

    Yes, sparkpeople does have good variety of exercises at different levels of intensity and difficulty.

    The title of your post sounds like a good song title 🙂

    Poor dear. It is always one of those situations that have to be dealt with at the proper time. And, as might have happened to you, the cure is as difficult as the symptoms.

    Hope you get back on your feet and feeling a return of your normal energy soon.
