A Merry Month of Movement #ReadersWorkouts
Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
I didn’t quite meet either of my goals for November, 1120 of 1200 minutes and 7 of 8 strength-training workouts. But, I came close enough to make the same goals for December. I also made progress in strength-training — that has to be one of the most satisfying forms of exercise for seeing actual progress in a short amount of time.
How was your November? What are you planning for December? Do you expect it to be easier or more difficult than most months for exercise?

I started something new yesterday. Since I work on floors 6 and 7 of a building (and they’re all tall floors) I joined a co-worker’s stair-climbing club. We did 3 sets down and 2 sets up that reduced my legs to jelly and it’s now a daily thing on my calendar.
The 2 hours in the karate studio just didn’t seem as bad after that!
What a great way to exercise! I love the idea of a stair-climbing club.
I should make some actual goals for December – aside from not gaining twenty pounds over the holidays.
Even though you didn’t quite reach your goals for November, you still did great!
I’ve made a few goals for December. Yikes…December!!
November was okay. I only gained 2 lbs over Thanksgiving and had lost a few pounds before the holiday so I think I’m still ahead of where I was (but not quite where I hoped to be). On Sunday I tried a new leg routine and strained a muscle in my lower back so I’ve been avoiding strength for the past couple of days. My goal was to do strength 6x this week. Not happy but not giving up. Maybe tomorrow my back will be ready for more.
