This evening I did a 2 mile walk with Leslie Sansone and then did a quick 13 minute cool down stretching video from FitnessBlender. Hopefully my muscles aren't too sore tomorrow for Day #3 of the challenge.

TheDragon and I also got a bit of walking done today going to the used book store and shopping for groceries.

Recently finished Day #3 of the challenge, today's focus was on HIIT and abs and it was about 51 minutes total. It was very challenging and I definitely broke a sweat. I'll post the link in case anyone is interested.

I might do some stretching tonight but otherwise that was enough physical activity for today.

Got around 11.5k steps total today from work...for a large part of my shift I was stocking small items that all belonged in the same aisle, so my step count was lower today.

Just finished Day #4 of the challenge, today's focus was on upper body, cardio kickboxing and some strength/yoga at the end. I was sweating a lot (still am, actually) Great workout though, it might be my favourite of the challenge. I'll post the link in case anyone is interested:

Late this morning I did Day #5 of the challenge, which focused on a short amount of HIIT and strength training for the lower body with weights. Because it's so hot in my house (no air conditioning, just fans but they don't do much) it was by far the sweatiest of the 5 days, even though it was only 38 minutes long! I was literally dripping sweat on the floor.

This evening I did a stretching/yoga/pilates routine, very easy, to stretch out my sore muscles. Hopefully that makes them a little less sore for work tomorrow!

This was the first time I've done all 5 days of the challenge consecutively, and it feels good! I'll post a link to the workout if anyone is interested:

Today was a rest day, although I got 12k steps total today from working an 8 hour shift, and I just finished a very quick and very easy 13 minute stretch workout from FitnessBlender.

My ankle has started hurting today and I hope it feels better soon! I'm definitely going to take it easy for the rest of the evening.

Today was a lighter day because of my ankle, although I did a pilates workout in the morning (about 38 minutes total with warm up and cool down). Aside from that, I've been taking it easy today. I work the next 2 days in a row so I want my ankle to be in decent shape.

Today I got 17k steps total, despite trying to take it easy on my ankle.

About to do a 35 minute stretching/yoga/pilates routine from FitnessBlender, just something to relax after a not so great day.

Forgot to post yesterday, oops! I got around 13k steps from work but didn't do any other exercise aside from that.

Today has been quite a lazy day but this morning I did a lower body workout from FitnessBlender (about 32 minutes total) that literally kicked my butt. I am wondering how sore I will be tomorrow!

Got about 12k steps total today, got a ride to and from work so my step count is on the smaller side.

Just finished doing a 2 mile walking workout with Leslie Sansone, and I did 2 different short upper body routines from FitnessBlender, which totaled 20 minutes. Along with the cool down, it was a 51 minute workout. Not bad for a work day.

This morning I did a cardio/pilates routine from Fitnessblender that was 40 minutes total. I didn't sweat much despite it being a strenuous workout, it was still cool outside at that point.

Then this evening I did a low impact cardio routine along with a short 10 minute abs workout, both from FitnessBlender, 37 minutes total including the warm up and cool down. This time I sweat A LOT, despite the routine being easier than this morning's routine. The hot weather makes a difference!

I started up one of FitnessBlender's low impact routines that I bought ages ago. It's 4 weeks long and I may not stick to it verbatim, but I'll try to incorporate the workouts into my routine. Day 1 is finished.
