Readers’ Workouts — February 4 — 7 Comments

  1. That’s quite an achievement Joy. If I have done the arithmetic correctly that works out on average to 40 mins each day? Does any kind of exercise count?

    • Yep! I count everything. Mostly it’s walks of 30 minutes a day, but I also count shoveling snow and dancing around my office. I make up the rest of the minutes in strength-training and stretching — so most days, that’s 15 to 20 minutes after my walk.

  2. Karate group class, my private lesson, and sparring class last night, I slept well! I’ve disconnected my Fitbit from Sparkpeople, it seems to report oddly low calorie amounts and I’d prefer to keep Sparkpeople honest because that’s where I track my food.

  3. I feel like I’m holding myself back because of the boot camp. Only 30 minutes of real exercise a day whereas before I was doing 2-4 hours a day. It feels weird to do so little but I’m seeing progress. The strangest days are the days we’re supposed to take off. I’m not used to giving my body a day of rest. But I did it last week and this week and I don’t seem any worse for wear when I get back to exercising on Monday. I’ve lost 12 lbs this year and counting.

  4. Congrats on the 1400 min. Exercise workout in January. I’m not sure when I will start my exercise, I just reach for one goal a week. So I know I’m going to have to start soon.
