30 Day Fitness Challenge Day 26

Active Challenge:  Do at least 10 minutes of extra walking today.  Well this was a definite.  I ran up and down our hill to the stud pen about 4 times yesterday plus I walked up the bluff to bring home the goats who got let out of their pen by the horses.

Exercise Challenge:
Part 1:  Do 2 complete circuits of the low impact cardio workout.  They provided us with a long list of different excersises we needed to do.  With a few minor adjustments to make them work with the equipment I have, I was able to do them.

Part 2:  Perform the exercises detailed in the intermediate workout.  Again I was able to do these with some minor adjustments so that they would work with what I had available here in the house.

Flexibility Challenge:  This was a total stretch with resistance bands.  I do happen to have a set of resistance bands from when I was pregnant with one of the monkeys.  So I used those to complete their list of stretches.

Nutritional Challenge:  This one wanted us to take time after one meal to write down what we ate, how much we ate, how we felt, fullness, etc.  Well I didnt' do that.  I didn't have the time.  I can tell you what I did eat though!  For breakfast I had yoghurt, for first snack we hadoranges, for lunch we had leftover sutlers beans, for second snack we had apples, and for supper it was just whatever could be scrounged out of the fridge.

Mind/Body Challenge:  Schedule a 5-minute (or more) block of time today and spend that time doing any of the following:
  • Listen to your favorite song
  • Watching the sunrise or sunset
  • Reading your favorite book, website or blog
  • Stretching
  • Resting
  • Doodling
  • Breathing
  • Playing with your pet
This is meant for a time of relaxing.  Well, I did read a book while I was trying to nurse Fionna to sleep so hopefully that counts.  Nursing is relaxing in itself due to the hormones it produces and I love to read!
