Getting back to a schedule and to exercising!
I am finally finishing up my spring cleaning and may be getting the routines of my world back!
Exercise is/has also been a routine. Which I finally started back on again this past Thursday. And for those who want to know what I do...if you have no interest you can back out and go read someones interesting blog post today....I won't know that you left! 😁 Here goes!
I used to do the the 7 Minute Workout and thought it was great! I could even 'plank' for at least a full minute! I liked that I had it on my phone so I could basically do the exercises anywhere and any time. When my wrists/hands started to get bad I had to eliminate some of the exercises but I still walked the dogs at least twice a day and would get in 1.5 miles - 3 miles, depending on the weather in addition to some 'easy' exercises!
When I visited my sister earlier this winter, she introduced me to a new type of exercise that I am totally hooked on!!! It is the Walking at Home exercise by Leslie Sansone. I love to walk so this form of cardio exercise is perfect for me. You can check out her video(s) here. I really get a workout and because Leslie has so many different YouTubes you don't get bored. And I sure can work up a sweat and get the heart rate up! With Leslie's workout can get you to obtain 15 minute miles! Now that's pretty good!
I'm back into the grove of exercising daily! I'm not up to the 3 mile mark yet but I do 2 miles for a few days then back to 1 mile days depending on what else I'm doing! Like moving furniture and spring cleaning!
So far, I have only watched her YouTube channel but I am considering signing up for her monthly program. You can see the details here. I think I'll do the $4.99 month (you also get 1 month free with this) and if I like it, then I will sign up for the year. I can download to my phone or Android tablet which will also be convenient. So guess I'll stop writing this post so I can go sign up!
