Today, honestly , I did nothing! Yesterday I did yoga, at a steady pace. Me and my husband went out late last night, which we normally do not do, so I took a break this morning. Am I making an excuse not to exercise?
Rest days are totally okay! One or two days off a week is totally fine and it’s good to listen to your body. Personally, I try to not take more than 2 days off consecutively. If I can’t get to the gym (or don’t want to) I definitely try and fit in at least a walk outside to do some movement 🙂
Hi, all! I have been doing a lot more walking lately. I don’t think my short walks add up to 30 minutes every day, but I figured it is more than what I usually do. 🙂 One thing I have learned about myself is that I need to let myself take baby steps to work towards a goal that feels overwhelming to me. Right now, the idea of carving 30 minutes out of my schedule every day to exercise feels daunting, so I am starting small – or maybe even smaller than small, haha! But if it gets me to my goal eventually, I am okay with that.
Hey everyone!! Here is my fitness log for this week!
Jan. 19th: 45 hour walk outside with my husband / 20 minutes of stretching & pilates
Jan. 20th: 1 hour walk outside with my husband
Jan. 21st: 1 hour walk outside with my husband
Jan. 22nd: 1 mile jog on the treadmill
Since my husband and I worked for ourselves (HGG!! xo) we like to go on walks to take a computer break and also it’s a good time to chat business and work (not sitting at our desks).
I hope everyone had a wonderful week and start to their weekend!! xx Megan
Okay so I have been a bit MIA. On the 19th I took a 30 minute walk. On the 20th I had surgery so no exercise for me. On the 21st it was very light and I mean light walking in the hospital. The 22nd I did a bit more walking in my home throughout the day. The 23rd is the same I have walked throughout my home and then I rest and get back up and go again. It will take me a bit to get back to full exercise status but I will do as much as I can each day.
Okay I know it is small but I have been up walking for 15 minutes. I also did a small jig (just moving my legs for dancing no hip action). I plan on getting up and walking some more today but I just needed to rest a bit.
I have been put on bedrest since Wednesday so I have not been moving at all. Apparently I over did it by taking mini walks, car rides and sitting straight up for long periods of time. Who would have thought that was overdoing it. I hate sitting about and waiting. I will get moving as soon as I am allowed to. Happy moving everyone.
Hey Megan.. I am almost 4 weeks out of surgery and I think that I am finally able to do more. I will know more when I talk with the doctor tomorrow. I did manage though last week to sneak in 3/4 of a mile walk. Today however it is -5 outside so inside I will stay. Maybe I can sneak some dancing in today…living room dance party with my 8 year old.
My home move last week, really kept my body moving and has made me stronger! So many trips to the car, carrying boxes, and going up and down stairs. I am truly reaping the benefits on increased strength and energy, from doing this for a week! It has encouraged me to take the stairs more at work (and not just to go down 🙂 ).
