Today I got around 12k steps, I got rides to and from work so my step count was a bit lower.

I also just finished Day 11 of the Low Impact program which was a 40 minute long lower body workout with weights. Hopefully my legs aren't too sore tomorrow because I have to work! According to the program, tomorrow is supposed to be an optional stretching day so it'll be a light activity day for sure.

Today I got around 11k steps, a bit on the lower side but still above the recommended daily amount.

Going to do Day 12 of the Low Impact Program before bed, which is a 27 minute stretching/pilates/yoga video from FitnessBlender that I enjoy. Tomorrow is a complete rest day.

This morning I got up early and finished Day 14 of the Low Impact Program, which was a 29 minute long HIIT/strength routine for the lower body, and an additional 9 minute pilates workout which was more challenging than I expected.

Also got 12k steps today done at work, and I think I'll do a nice stretching video before bed.

This morning I did Day 15 of the Low Impact Program, which was a 9 minute standing abs workout followed by a 27 minute upper body/abs workout with weights. It was a good workout and I got a bit of a sweat going.

This evening I did a 5k walk with Leslie Sansone (roughly 3.1 miles) that included 2 minute sets of cardio boosts, I sweated a lot during this one. Including the cooldown it was 50 minutes total. Although I was sweating a lot I still felt good!

This morning before work I did Day 16 of the Low Impact Program, which was a 33 minute cardio workout that was effective, but I didn't particularly enjoy it because it was very repetitive. Including the warm up and cool down it was 42 minutes total. I likely wouldn't do this workout again unless it showed up on a program schedule.

Today I've gotten around 12.5k steps total.

This evening I did a 3 mile walking routine with Leslie Sansone followed by a 13 minute cool down stretching video from Fitnessblender. Lots of movement today overall, and it noticeably helps my mood and energy levels!

Oops, forgot to post what I did yesterday. Yesterday I did Day 17 of the Low Impact Program, which was a 30 minute upper body/yoga routine followed by an 8 minute upper body HIIT workout that really made the arms burn after. I also went on a short walk with Dragon.

This morning I did Day 18 of the Low Impact program, before work because I know I'd be tempted to skip it after. It was a solid 27 minute lower body workout and I hope my legs aren't too sore tomorrow.

Still need to go to work and so I'll likely post again later today for my step count and may do an evening stretch routine. We shall see!

Got 11.2k steps in today, probably going to read and then go to sleep so no stretching tonight. Tomorrow on the program schedule is a very short, low impact workout and a stretch routine. I may end up doing a bit more, even just some light cardio.

I put a step counter on my phone and I'm consistently hitting over 11.5K steps a day. It didn't occur to me to do that until I read here, thanks!

This morning I did Day 19 of the Low Impact program and did a 26 minute low impact cardio workout, it was like a very active stretch with very light cardio.

It is now evening and I'll be doing the 27 minute stretching workout that I enjoy. Tomorrow will be a complete rest day although I may still stretch at some point.
