Readers’ Workouts

Had a minor setback in the form of some bursitis in my hip that flared up.  It really was okay with walking, but it stopped me from doing yoga last week and this weekend.  Now we have a ton of snow, so I am not sure how much exercising I will get done, other than snow shoveling.

Hopefully by Thursday the snow will be gone (or at least done) then I can get back outside to the track. Failing that it will have to be the treadmill at the gym.  Also, planning on getting back to yoga this week.

Still loving my fitbit!  I am really surprised I haven’t lost it or washed it yet :).  I am going to make an effort to do more with the food logs this week, so I can track calories in vs. expended.

Hope everyone else is doing well and keeping moving!

PS  I am thinking about a new tattoo – a quote from Rachel Joyce:

“If I just keep putting one foot in front of the other, it stands to reason that I’m going to get there. I’ve begun to think we sit far more than we’re supposed to.” He smiled. “Why else would we have feet?”

We have been having big tattoo discussions in my house this week…both my daughters want another tattoo.

Reader’s Workouts

I received a Fitbit One for Christmas from my daughter and I have to say that it really is a great tool as far as awareness goes.  I haven’t really gotten into inputting food or activities into it, but just the fact that I can see in general how active or inactive I have been at at a moment’s notice is great.  After all:

 

 

My current goals are 10,000 steps per day and 30 minutes of high level activity.  We had a  couple really cold, icy days that I didn’t meet my goal, but I am getting there now.  I am looking forward to upping my activity levels with this tool. 

This works for me because if I don’t feel like making it to the track or gym, I look on the display and see that I am nowhere near my goal and it pushes me to go.

Currently, I am trying for 30 minutes of jogging 5 days per week and 1 hour of yoga 4 days per week. I found a great local studio that I am enjoying right now.   I prefer running outside but I am using an elliptical when the weather doesn’t cooperate.    

I am interested in hearing about other reader’s workouts.
