This week was pretty crazy. I worked a lot this week, my brother came up for a day from Florida, and we had a doctor’s appointment for Peanut. Even though it was a crazy week, I don’t make excuses and I don’t need to! I walked a total of 13.18 miles for the week (yay!) and managed to add some additional workouts as well.
- Sunday night, after my walk, I did a step aerobics workout.
- Thursday, I did a yoga workout while Peanut was sleeping.
- Friday, I walked over 3 miles at a flea-market. Plus when I got home, I did an arm workout with a 5 minute cool-down yoga routine.
Overall, I have had a great week in regards to exercise. I’m really happy with it. I have also increased my water intake and I will continue to drink a lot but I don’t think it needs to be another goal for the upcoming week. Fruits and veggies have been making a regular appearance on my plate and I hope to continue eating them more often.
