Just checkin’ in to see how all my peeps are doing?! As you might recall, earlier this week, I proposed to engage in 30 minutes of physical activity a day. I actually didn’t think much of it, until I got some feedback from people. It made me think, “Hmm, am I REALLY going to be able to put in 30 minutes of physical activity a day?!!”
Well, so far so good!! Here’s a recap:
Day 1: Jog on Treadmill, 35:14 min:sec, 2.271 miles.
Day 2: Elliptical Workout, Level 5, 30:53 min:sec. I BARELY got through these 30 minutes!! I forgot my socks and headphone at home, so I worked out in silence and sockless!!
Day 3: Another jog on the treadmill, while watching the last two episodes of Scandal. Note to self, watching Scandal while running can be hazardous to your health. I nearly went tachycardic!! Shonda Rimes…please include a disclosure stating that content from your show, combined with physical activity, may cause one’s heart to react abnormally!! 😛 Treadmill workout, 45:41 min:sec (some jogging, some walking), 2.989 miles.
So, not too bad so far!! I have a run planned for tonight, so that will get day 4 in the books for me! How are y’all doing with your workouts??! Remember, you can follow along on Instagram or Twitter, as well as on Facebook here on the blog!
If you are in the Birmingham, AL, area, tomorrow, May 11th, Black Girls Run, Birmingham (the group that helped me get my running groove back after the birth of my first son) will be supporting little-er Girls on the Run tomorrow morning! Feel free to go out, join them, and show your support!! Or, if you have daughters, nieces, little girl friends, etc., encourage them to participate in Girls on the Run! Getting healthy and fit should be a community-wide effort, so let’s do our part and support each other and help others get involved!!
Stay chic and fit, friends!!
