New Workout Challenge – Day 5

New Workout Challenge – Day 5

I really need to get these workouts in earlier. I’m not a morning person so getting up at 6 is not something I’m interested in, but maybe first thing after breakfast with Gage.  Yesterday was busy with two pool parties, Despicable Me 3 and fireworks, and today I just kept putting it off.  But I prevailed!

Yesterday I needed something low impact for my foot and although the one I found was only 15 minutes, I was happy with it.  I liked that they had the leader and two others, one to show moderated moves and one to show advanced.  It was good for my time constraints and my still swollen foot and I had no problem following the modified workout.  I don’t think I’d do this one again just because it wasn’t all that fun.

Tonight I tried one that I’ve seen on infomercials.  You know, the one with the bubbly woman walking?  Well, I found out her name is Leslie Sansone and she made a video for the American Heart Association.  The three mile walk was great and perfectly low key for a late night workout.  I loved that she added moves in to make it more of a cardio workout  but stressed that always going back to just walking if you needed to was okay too. I did have to stop it once when I heard Gage upstairs (he had left his bed to go to his play room), but I really liked this one, even if the excitement level wasn’t there.  I think it would be easy to listen to an audio book while following Leslie.  At 46 minutes this one takes some time.

  1. Nice work! I love these 30 Day Challenges. You’re inspiring me. I’ve been wanting to do this with my own devoted husband and if he wrote and kept track and we helped each other out we may actually get some of these done! Way to go, Stacy! Love this!

    1. Thanks, Heather! Coming up with challenges to do together is tricky, but I need to come up with some more. Jason doesn’t want to write more than two or three posts for the month, but if he’s willing to do the challenges I’m okay with that! If you and Archie want to try a challenge together I’d be happy to let you take over the blog for a month 🙂

  2. So, you inspired me a bit. I was at the gym yesterday and did a “spinning ” video on my phone, something I’ve never tried before. It was tough and a way better workout than I usually get on the bikes.

    1. Yay!! Very brave. I’m still floundering around where no one can watch, but maybe at the end of the month I’ll post a video of me doing a workout 🙂
