bummer iaawal! I wonder if you could work out a timing arrangement. It's only 20 minutes, after all.

 

I've been doing mine in the hallway when I'm at home in the tiny apartment because a) we don't have enough open floor space, and b) it annoys the crud out of Mr Woo when I do "cheezy" exercise videos.

 

Day 27 in a row today!!! and also a 30 minute walk.

 

I think when I hit day 30 I will go back to the beginning and try to do more of the exercises in the "unmodified" version and move from my dinky 1# weights up to 2#.

I've been thinking of that.

My pedometer is on the fritz and I feel lost.  I'm waiting for Fitbit to get back to me to tell me where to send it to get it repaired/replaced.

 

Two hours of lawn mowing yesterday and three reps of leg lifts.

Maybe because you are gaining muscle?

 

 

No exercise for me today.

Tea, I've been doing the 30 day shred and lots of walking for the last month. I'm only down a couple pounds, but my pants fit MUCH more loosely and I've moved a notch down on my belt even though I weigh essentially the same.

 

Also, alas, I had the sad realization a couple of years ago that fitness and weight loss are not the same thing. I exercise to be fit and so I can eat more. I track my calories to have a small but regular deficit to help with the weight loss.

 

 

30 minute dog walk and 20 minutes circuit training. I was extra mindful about deepening my squats and lunges today... holy quads, Batman!

Did my morning thing today, 30 minute dog walk and 20 minute circuit training.

I also took a 30 minute walk at lunch and again just now because it's FAR too nice to not be outside.

30 minutes of dog walking, 45 minutes of brisk walking with a small amount of jogging thrown in, two rounds of Ab Roller, three sets of various arm and leg exercises = 13,872 steps.  Also, I threw out the remainder of the binge food I bought yesterday.  I've planned my meals for tomorrow.  Atkins day one take three.
