Another day, done!

I completed my goal for today again, this time in a different order. I did the first two parts of my workout, the bicycle and the video, this morning before work. After work I finished by walking outside for one mile. We didn’t walk more because it was going to start raining but we also … Continue reading Another day, done!

Happy to say I made it through week one

I can finally say I finished my first week of Focus T25. Today was my last day, all I had to do was stretch. Each of these videos has a few minutes of stretching at the end but today was 25 minutes of stretching. It is not difficult at all and I like we don’t … Continue reading Happy to say I made it through week one

Double day

I wanted to take it easy today so I was hoping the video for today was an easy one, but I forgot it’s Friday and Friday is double day in the Focus T25 routine. This means you do two videos, or 50 minutes, instead of the regular 25. This doesn’t mean you have to do … Continue reading Double day

Exercising during Christmas time

Because today also a holiday, I exercised in the morning. It was the same as always, bicycle, video and treadmill. I have been doing everything I’m the same order every day so the only thing that changes is the video I do each day according to the T25 calendar. Today’s video was a full body … Continue reading Exercising during Christmas time

Interval training

This afternoon I did the second video of the Focus T25 exercise routine. I thought I wouldn’t want to do anything today after all I did yesterday but I did! Just like yesterday, I used the stationary bike, did the video and walked on the treadmill. Today I used the bike for 45 minutes, then … Continue reading Interval training

Let’s try this again

Today I made a last minute decision and changed my exercise routine a little bit. I hope it will be for the better and I don’t change my mind halfway through. After already warming up and spending over half an hour on the bicycle, I decided I didn’t want to just keep doing workout videos … Continue reading Let’s try this again

Running on Thursdays

Even though Thursday is usually the hardest day of the week at work for me, I’ve completed my second week of running with my coworkers after work on a Thursday. I thought it was going to be easier this week because I already knew what I was getting myself into and because I have been … Continue reading Running on Thursdays

Exercise to distract myself

I couldn’t wait to start exercising this morning mostly because it was a great distraction from the news and thinking about the election results. I started quickly after breakfast. I didn’t want to look at any news or updates on social media and exercising is a good way to get your mind and attention off … Continue reading Exercise to distract myself

Tired but still walking

I was right, my legs hurt today after last night’s run but it wasn’t too much pain to stop me from walking. I’m tired but I’m still committed to exercising six times a week, even if it’s only for a little while. No running, cycling or videos today, I just walked. I was tired when … Continue reading Tired but still walking

Workout at work

After work today, a few of us stayed behind to exercise. It was a nice change from exercising in my apartment. We started walking or running around the parking lot, each at our own pace. After a while we took a lap outside, around the building. It was a little scary because there were a … Continue reading Workout at work

This is the best I can do today

I can’t expect to have a great workout everyday or for every week to be as successful as the last because that’s just not realistic. What I can do is do the best I can everyday. Some days that will mean an hour on the treadmill, workout videos and more time on the treadmill, while … Continue reading This is the best I can do today

Just started week 2

I wasn’t sure if this was going to work but week one of blogging after I exercise was a success so here I go again. It pushed me to exercise six days of the week which is way better than what I can usually do when I get lazy. After seeing how well last week … Continue reading Just started week 2

Six days!

I did it, I exercised for six days straight. I completed my six days of exercising this morning on the stationary bike. I didn’t push myself too hard but I did exercise for 45 minutes. I think that’s good enough for the sixth day. Tomorrow is my well deserved rest day before I get started … Continue reading Six days!

Setting goals

The first week of blogging after exercising has been a success. I have been able to work out every day this week. I didn’t blog last night but I did exercise. And finally today, when I was tired and just wanted to be lazy, I decided to get up and walk to at least let … Continue reading Setting goals

Morning workout

Exercising in the morning is the best. This forces you to wake up and then you can just rest when you come home from work. This morning I finished working out before I had lunch and before I went to work, so now that I’m tired I don’t have anything to worry about, I can’t … Continue reading Morning workout
