Yesterday was my first day to miss. I did get in a looong walk across the Costco parking lot, though. It was a total madhouse because it's about to snow here a lot and I ended up parking about as far from the entrance as possible. But that doesn't quite count for me. But missing was a good reminder that if I don't get it done first thing in the morning, I'm prone to procrastinate all day until it never gets done! So, this morning I got at it first thing!

Great point about wo first thing. My little neighborhood gym closes long before I get off of work. Last week was a complete washout because I kept waking up too late.

I just noticed the grossest thing about my gym it has a weird dead stuffed animal right next to the scanner.

Nawchem...taxidermy by the scanner is definitely weird. Glad you're feeling better and congrats on the sweat!

I didn't get a chance to post yesterday, so I'm adding it now. I didn't work out first thing today, so I'm going to try to get to it before lunch.

Thanks for encouragement City!

My lungs were just awful after wo. I will probably not try again until I'm much. I didn't know exercise can make asthma worse too.

Ugh. Sorry that you're having such trouble.

Maybe there's something easier you can do at home to rest and recover, as well as combat the gym early closing hours. I'm trying to alternate two very beginner workouts; each one takes about 10-12 minutes. Only one of them as a warm-up that gets my heart rate and breathing up a bit. The other (Pilates) is much mellower.

I’m still with you Nawchem! I forgot to post yesterday, but I did do my workout and I worked out this morning in the hotel room. I noticed this morning that a couple of Pilates moves are getting a little easier. And yesterday evening my upper arms and shoulders were really feeling the after effects of the planks from my other routine. It’s great having these very short routines that I can do without equipment, so I can squeeze them in anywhere. Baby steps!

That's great city, flexibility is key to consistancy.

This challenge is really helping me. I get home at midnight and could plead fatigue. I think I sleep better, with these stretches working out the after work kinks and stress.

Did okay while I’ve been away. I only missed one day. I missed a Saturday workout because I was super busy, but then we walked to dinner and back, so I got in an unplanned walk. Goal: Build some muscle, increase my flexibility and do PT for my ankle

Glad your ankle is improving.

I didn't do anything last night. I work every day for over a week and am trying to fit in urgent care. Something is really wrong with my lungs. I didn't want steroids but might have to.
