I met my October goal of 1600 minutes with about 2 hours to spare, finishing with a late-night yoga session on Halloween. I’m doing much better this month. My exercise goal for November is 1600 minutes including 15 DVD workouts that feature strength-training.
I got a boost for that last bit when @TriniCapini (aka Trish of Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity) organized 30 Day Shred buddies on Twitter. Now joined by @kristiluvsbooks (of Kristi Loves Books) and @MsBookish (Belle Wong of msbookish.com), we’re encouraging each other to work out with Jillian Michaels. I’m right on track to complete 30 Day Shred on each odd day in November. I’m already feeling some improvement in my muscles.
That workout is only 20 minutes, which isn’t enough to keep me on track for 1600 minutes, so I’ve made it the centerpiece of a longer workout that begins with a short class on my Wii from Zumba 2 and ends with one of my Qi Gong DVDs. I’m having more fun with exercise than I’ve had in quite awhile. All it takes is one Wii game, two DVDs, and Twitter buddies! Nothing like complexity to improve a workout.
On the even days, I’ve been working in the yard, adding to my exercise minutes so I’m well ahead of schedule.
