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.
