Readers’ Workouts July 17 — 8 Comments

  1. Hi Joy,

    After coming across your blog a few weeks back, I have decided to take a very bold step and to blog about my fitness and food programme too!

    Thanks for the push! : )

  2. I’m pressing on, feeling stronger and more agile. Keeping up with my “minutes” committment but slacking off a bit on the strength training. I’m looking for motivation since I find lifting kind of boring. I’d rather be walking or biking! When I read some of the wokouts linked here, I have to keep reminding myself that I can’t go from 0 to 80 mph overnight. Have to set my own gooals and stick to them. This comment will have to be my link this week. I did blog about a very active weekend but am not sure if it counts as an exercise blog. Love your comment about ‘course corrections.’ It makes so much sense!

    • I use DVDs with a strength training element because I find it less boring. I started with 10 Minute Solution: Target Toning. I’ve also used Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (although I find her a bit hard to take) and Ellen Barrett’s Fat Burning Fusion. More recently, I’ve used Slim in 6 which I described here:

  3. Hello everyone! So glad to see you’re all exercising!

    I clocked in with 370 minutes last week. A bit low for me, but we went to DC for a few days. While we did a TON of walking, I didn’t keep track and am not counting it as part of my “official” exercise.

    I know many of us struggle with injuries, time constraints and other limitations, but the important thing is that we keep moving, doing the best we can, making exercise a regular part of our lives. The benefits are still there and will add up over time.

  4. I’m new to this meme and excited to participate and read how others manage to fit exercise into their busy lives.
    I like that you set your monthly exercise goal as a number of minutes rather than a set number of workouts. That likely makes your exercise more flexible and therefore more do-able.

    • Welcome!

      The goal of minutes really does help with flexibility. Some months, though, I end up with a lot of exercise in the last few days!
