OMG, time is flying fast. Seriously, how does this happen?
In a bit more than a month, I (and Anna!) will be turning 30! That's a huge number!!! Good thing people still think we look like we are 22 ;)
For our birthday this year, Anna and I will be flying to Las Vegas, and our good friend Lera will be joining us: fun times!
I decided to do a little "tune-up"/experiment and exercise for 30 minutes for the next 30 days before I turn 30. I know this might not seem like a big deal for those of you who are gym fanatics, but for me, it's quite a commitment.
What will count as exercise: dancing, prancing around my apartment, going for a walk, doing weights, doing one of the yoga tapes Anna gave me, etc.
I will updated this post and document my progress and hope you will keep me accountable (I decided to post the most recent date first)!!!
Day 15: March 12: 2 mile walk from work to Dupont (volunteering)
Day 14: March 11: 4 mile walk around the neighborhood (awesome route making skills, Jenny!)
Day 13: March 10: 1 mile walk to lunch, 3 miles on treadmill
Day 12: March 9: dancing
Day 11: March 8: 80 minute walk: about 4.6 miles according to Google walking mile counter. Will try to do some weights for my arms later today.
Day 10: March 7: nada
Day 9: March 6: 1 mile walk to lunch and 1 mile walk back to work
Day 8: March 5: 4 mile walk after work: boy, does walking clear up your mind: or at least lets you not think about certain things
Day 7: March 4: Today I started to train for Avon Breast Cancer Walk. I walked 2 miles during lunch, which took about 30-35 minutes. I guess going at a comfortable speed I can do a mile in 15-17 minutes! So this counts for yesterday. I'll try to make it to the gym after work tonight. Top Chef reunion is at 9 pm :)......................So I did not make it to the gym for the Top Chef show, but I did get there around 10 pm and did 30 minute on the elliptical machine! So proud of myself, b/c it was very very tempting to stay in my apartment ;)
Day 6: March 3: the only exercise I did was taking stairs at work and that so does not count! I was thinking about going to the gym at night, but the Jenn came over for dinner instead (I am going to spare you with the list of things we've consumed)Day 5: March 2: 30 min eliptical in the gym, 15 min weights/stretching/sit ups at home; dancing at Lucky Bar--> and now I'm caught up!!!!!!
Day 4: March 1: I can only account for 15 minutes of dancing. I can't believe it's only 4 days into my plan and I'm already slacking!
Day 3: Feb 28: uhm, okay...so technically I did not do any exercising on Saturday, unless walking around an Outlet Mall counts (I know...it doesn't)...I'm going to have to up the amounts of exercising this coming week
Day 2: Feb 27: 30 minute walk at lunch at work. I could have walked longer, but it started sprinkling; stairs at work x 2
Day 1: Feb 26: lifting weights, running around my apartment, leg lifts, stepping on and off my chair (I was amazed at how this really increased my heart rate!), sit ups, wall push ups; stairs at work
