I joined Loretta's challenge (see badge at bottom of the page), and have tried to do a minimum of 10 minutes of some form of exercise every day. So far, I am doing a good job of it! Today, I used hand weights to exercise the upper arms.
I decided to target that area. Flying squirrels have nothing on the flaps I'm developing up there. Wonder if I could glide? But I digress ...
So, I spend about 15 minutes doing several weight routines to try to develop some muscles in my upper arms. The more muscle I build, the more my metabolism should rev up.
Yesterday, I actually went swimming, trying to go a solid 10 minutes of aerobic activity. I managed to do it longer, but cardiovascularly, I am a wee bit out of shape. (And by wee bit, I mean enormously out of shape.) Is gliding considered exercise? i wonder ...
Tomorrow, I return to the Pilates Ring that I won from Kathy just before leaving on vacation. It may be small, but it is a workout. I am so glad I won it!
I'm right on track for my August-Only Challenge!
Tonight's dinner: whole wheat pasta w/marinara, fresh tomato and artichoke hearts, with a nectarine for dessert. (Water with dinner) Tonight's snack will be a light chocolate soy milk & banana smoothie (made with crushed ice).
