New month, new week, back to school, waning moon — all good reasons to pump up our workouts! Readers’ Workouts is a weekly event inviting book lovers to get in touch with their inner athletes. Post your progress on your blog and link to the post in the list below. Or, tell us about your exercise week in the comments.
I decided that my yard work combined with my Wii games (Wii Fit Plus and Wii Walk It Out) weren’t giving me the fitness level I want. I promised myself a new Wii game for completing 15 Wii workouts last month, so I’ve ordered Zumba Fitness 2, which reviewers consider to be a good workout. I already own Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout and that’s a good one, but it’s exactly the movements I’m trying to be careful about while gardening is my major activity. My most important fitness goal for the summer is “don’t get injured.” I’ll get back to boxing in the winter.
In the meantime, I’ve started incorporating some of my DVDs back into the picture. The month has started slow with rain and holiday activities, but I’ve already managed two video workouts. Last night I loosened up my hip joints with Cardio Hula (Exercising in Virtual Hawaii) and on Saturday night I stretched with Candlelight Yoga. So, I’m up to 80 of the 1400 minutes I want to exercise in September and 2 of the 15 DVD or Wii workouts.
How are your workouts going?
