Exercise Challenge: Days 25 & 26

Did a little walking yesterday, but not what I'd call exercise. :P If I don't get out in the morning, lunch time hits & then it's nap time for Sprout, so I'm stuck here for three hours. When he wakes up it's dinner time & then too late for an outing. I really have to work on getting going in the morning.

Today was somewhat better. Walked to Mount Pleasant Community Centre so Sprout could go to the drop-in toddler 'dim', then the library. En route home, I picked up a lot of milk & beer, which must have added at least 20 pounds more to push up the hill in the stroller. :) All together I'd say I got in 25 minutes of walking.

No noticeable impact of the exercise today, other than getting soggy from all this rain--my shoes & my raincoat both leaked.

What is this Exercise Challenge, you ask? Read my post on Day One for details & how you can get involved too.


  1. Have you considered doing some body weight exercises while sprout is asleep? There are some great strength building routines you could get in with a 20-30 minute spot every other day. For me, I find strengthening exercises have the most immediate impact on increasing my energy as well.

    1. Funny, I was just thinking yesterday that I need to get back into doing some upper body strength training. My shoulders are feeling a bit weak. :P A dangerous thing for a person who needs to lift a nearing-30-pounds kid dozens of times a day...

      I generally just want to sit & read my RSS feed, watch reality TV shows online (heh...) or write while Sprout's asleep. But considering how long he naps, I really have no excuse. If I were organized, I could get in a workout, a shower & a couple of hours of writing before he wakes up.
