Readers’ Workouts May 8 — 18 Comments

  1. Well done. I have always wanted to do one of those fitness DVD workouts but I don’t have room to swing a cat in my house. I took up running a few months ago but I’d like to do a different form of exercise as well.

    • Thanks for participating! DVD workouts that emphasize strength training over dance often don’t take much more space than enough to do a push-up or crunches.

  2. I’m not doing that great. I haven’t been feeling well since my last Reader’s Workout post. Hopefully, once finals are out of the way I can get back to walking and biking.

  3. Hi Joy and other ‘Readers Workout’ friends,
    I hosted a similar ‘fitness challenge’ for readers of my blog last year, but what started out with several participants dwindled down to just two of us after a month or two. I didn’t continue it this year because aside from the one friend.. no one else seemed to care! lol! I hope you all stick with Joy’s weekly round-up posts. I think it helps a lot of people to have a group or community of fellow exercise enthusiasts to help motivate you and keep on track. I’m lucky to have established a group of friends over the last couple of years with whom I exercise regularly–running, cycling and working out at the gym. The social part adds extra motivation because I like being with my friends!

    I keep a fitness log of sorts linked to my main blog. I keep track of what I did, how long, how many miles, that sort of thing. It helps me stay accountable to when I’ve taken days off and it’s a source of pride when I look back and see how much I’ve accomplished.

    I exercised for 330 minutes last week from May 1 to May 7. You can see what I did to keep moving here: .

    Silly question: Should I be reporting workouts from May 1 – May 7 or May 2 – May 8?

    • Whichever works best for you! I’m old enough to think of a week beginning on Sunday, so I’m still figuring out what I want to do with this Tuesday reporting mechanism!

      • Thanks, Joy! I think like you–a week starts with Sunday and ends on Saturday.. but for some reason I started keeping track of my workouts Monday-Sunday. I think because Monday is back to routine with school, work, etc…

        I’m going to report my weeks as Monday-Sunday then. I suppose it doesn’t really matter as long as we are working out! 🙂

        By the way, is there a way to subscribe to comments on a post on your blog? I couldn’t find it.
