I've embarked on a new personal challenge to exercise for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I've also promised to share what I've done each week with all my readers. For the week of July 23, here's what I did:
Tuesday: Long walk with the dog
Wednesday: Aerobics/Kickboxing Exercise Video
Thursday: Long walk with the dog
Saturday: Long walk around the East Mall of Washington, DC
My first week went pretty well. I learned two important things: (1) I can do this! and (2) I need to listen to my body and know my limits. Thursday, i decided to do an advanced version of an exercise video, and found myself almost collapsing after the first 15 minutes. So I'm going to take it slow this week to avoid burning out.
Readers: How do you plan on staying active this week?
