Just finished an evening static stretching routine. 26 minutes total and my body feels a lot less stiff now.

Got over 10k steps today from work and forced myself to do a workout when I got home. I'm glad I did! It was a challenging yet not excruciating HIIT/abs workout, Day 3 of the FBSweat program. The HIIT moves focused on the lower body so I won't be surprised if I'm sore tomorrow. 33 minutes total including warm up and cool down.

Somehow I've managed to meet my 30 minutes cardio goal every day for the last 10 days. Not succeeding in many other areas, but for once, exercise has not taken a back seat when things get rough.

Just finished Day 4 of the FBSweat program, today was an upper body workout with weights. I also did the optional bonus workout, another upper body routine to help with poor posture. 50 minutes total including the warm up and cool down.

Got just over 14k steps in today, no additional workouts though. I'll be back at working out tomorrow.

Just finished Day 5 of the FBSweat program. Today was lower body strength and HIIT that focused on the lower body. 36 minutes total, 4/5 in difficulty. It was a rough workout at times, some extra pauses and some modifications were required. But I managed to get through! Very happy I did my workout today, it has been sort of a blah day and it helps me to know I did something positive with at least some part of my day.

Just finished Day 6 of the FBSweat program, which was an optional stretching routine. It happened to be one that I have done several times and enjoy, the 26 minute long static stretching workout. My muscles definitely needed a good stretch and I feel quite relaxed now.

Today, Day 7 of FBSweat, was a rest day from any intense working out. I still managed to get in over 13.5k steps today and quite a bit of lifting at work. Back at it tomorrow!

Just finished Day 8 of FBSweat, which was a total body workout with weights, and it was definitely an intense 4/5 difficulty workout! No move was ever repeated so I didn't get bored, and yet the whole body was worked thoroughly. Got a decent sweat going too, which is tough to do when it's colder weather. 35 minutes total.

Got around 11k steps total today, would have had more but I had to leave my shift a couple hours early due to feeling awful mentally. No other workouts today. Hopefully tomorrow is a better day.
