Today was a bit tough. I fasted yesterday and was still fasting this morning when I worked out. Almost as soon as I got into the warm-up, which is designed to get your heart rate up a bit, I started to feel like you do at the end of a work-out when all your glucose is gone. I knew what was going on, and decided to try to push on, but take it easy if I needed. I ended up doing okay and felt better by the end. I also got to almost 30 seconds of my hands-and-knees to hands-and-toes exercise. When I started it, I could barely do 15 seconds. (My workout is 30 seconds of an exercise followed by 30 seconds rest.)


Goal: Build some muscle, increase my flexibility and do PT for my ankle

i was really not into working out yesterday morning. But I realized I'd been doing it every day for nearly a month, so maybe it was okay to take one day off, as long as I got right back to it today. The last week or so my lower back has been very stiff and ache-y. Last night and this morning was pretty bad. So I went walking this morning, which usually helps loosen it up. I realized I need to mix walking into my workouts more: I live in a hilly area, and as soon as I got to the corner of a short block, I was completely winded. Part of my goal is to be able to do things I want to do and go places and that means being able to walk moderate distances with hills.

Goal: Build some muscle, increase my flexibility, and become more capable.

It is for me too!

Yoga is a great idea as well Just stretching and hold right?

I'm still with you in spirit. I can't get the password to the router to work on my computer or phone. May have to get my own net. Annoyingly I've used all my data until 4/13. I've exercised every day but one.

3/1 packing boxes and cleaning for hours
3/4 treadmill fat burn, walked 1.5 miles
3/5 treadmill 35min
3/6 treadmill 1.7 miles, I'm tired. 30 min stretches, 15 min decluttering
3/7 cardio 30 min
3/8 58 min stretches
3/9 33min stretches
3/10 cardio 31 min
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
First week at the gym is finished with 5 days, 30 min cardio
3/11 M- stretches 30m
3/12 bike/tm 31m
3/13 walked 1.7
3/14 tm 31 min cardio +8min slow walking, and walked to drs office, gym and library. Exhausted myself. 30min stretching.
3/15 stretch 30m
3/16 got called into work, did nothing
3/17 31 min cardio - my heart rate was lower and it seemed easier
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Second week at the gym finished, with 3 days, 31 min cardio
3-18 30m stretches
3/19 31m bike
3/20 stretch 30

Nawchem, that is amaze-balls on the blood pressure!! (I now sound like I'm 12. I need more coffee...). Mine's been pushing 130/80ish the last couple times I was at the doctor and I've been hoping all this weight loss and exercise will bring it down some. It was in the 120s for years.

Adding walking to my workout routines is going on the backbench again, at least for a week or two. Because I stepped in a little hole at the dog park yesterday and twisted my other ankle. No kidding. Luckily it's not serious. I have a doctor's appointment for a few weeks from now, so hopefully they can refer me for some PT and maybe to a specialist, because this cannot keep happening.

Goal: Build some muscle, increase my flexibility, and become more capable.

Oh City that's too bad about the other ankle. Is the other ankle you've been rehabbing better yet?

I was put on high blood pressure for a while, then its bounced around 130-150s. I don't remember last time it was this low. Doing cardio and stretching has changed everything for me.

I wanted to take it easy on my ankle yesterday. This morning I woke up and really didn't want to work out. It was so easy to use my ankle as an excuse again, even though it isn't seriously injured. I realized how easy it is to let a workout habit slip away, while I was thinking all this. So, I made myself go do it. Can't say I enjoyed it, but my workouts are quick, so it got done, and that's a good thing.

Good job City !!!!!

I usually workout an hour after I wake up but roommates exercise class starts at 12:30. I'm hoping it won't be crowded. I only walk 33 min, her class is an hour.

I live every day in dread.

I was going to finish my taxes while waiting around to go the gym. I didn't know how to write my scholarship which we were told was non-taxable. I went and got my taxes done just for that document they insisted was taxable. Now I find out it isn't. Have to file an amended return state and fed, and I missed the gym.

I am going to walk to work to make up for it, which is about the same distance and I'll get some sun.

I've cried everyday this week. I don't think I can continue to live with this lady.
