Fitness Challenge: Day 5

I'll have to come back and edit this this evening. I wanted to get it up so y'all can leave your comments. I didn't sleep well last night, and couldn't get out of bed this morning. On a typical day, that would mean that I wouldn't get a workout in, but the boys will be going to their dad's this evening, so I can do it after they leave. I can workout when they're here and awake, but if you have kids or pets, you understand why it's easier if they're not. LOL

It's rainy today, so no walk, but the kids have PE today, so at least they'll be moving.

I did get a lot of walking in yesterday, because we were furniture shopping. Or furniture browsing, since we still don't have any. We think we know what we want now, though. Either way, I ended up with 7,161 steps yesterday.

Did you do better than I did? If you're blogging, feel free to leave your link in a comment.

Update 7:52 PM
The temp has dropped 20 degrees since we got up this morning, so I thought it would be a good idea if I mall-walked in Kroger. I wasn't up for another DVD and walking is my exercise of choice. So I set my timer and walked around the inside of our big ole Kroger store. After walking around twice at a slow pace, so as not to freak anyone out, I looked at my phone. Seven minutes and 57 seconds. That obviously wasn't going to work. So I bought some Moose Tracks ice cream (hey, I mostly eat healthy food, but I don't do "dieting") and headed home.

Then I walked around my neighborhood for what turned out to be exactly 30 minutes. To the second. It was very weird. It's cold out there, by the way. 

I'm going to write another blog post (about food) for my main blog, then go have some ice cream and decompress.

I walked the track for 35 minutes yesterday. It went so well I decided to do the same today. Well, it rained, is windy, and the temp dropped drastically, here as well. I'm sitting here debating to pop in a workout DVD or not...tick tock, tick tock

Trey, what did you end up doing?

Kemi, just thinking about doing a DVD for 45 minutes wears me out. There was a time when 45-60 minutes a day was the norm for me, but I'm not back there yet.
