Exercise Challenge: Month 2, Day 9

Walked 15 minutes to baby gym & 15 minutes back. :)

Also tried a few upper body exercises, as my shoulders really feel on the edge of an injury from all the toddler-hoisting. I could only do 10 push-ups from the knees. :P I was able to do 15 or 20 a year ago, from the toes. I did a set of 10 other thingies that I don't know the name of. Arms behind me with hands on the arm of the couch, my body in a seated position in the air (feet on the floor), bending & straightening my arms, lifting some of my body weight. Anyone know what those are called?

Week's total exercise: 130 minutes!

UPDATE: got another 10 minutes of walking in after dinner. :)

Weekly total: 140 minutes.

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


  1. those sound like tricep dips. And if you are looking for an awesome and inspiring, feminist, work out blog, check out
    That article I linked too is extra special, and she links to some body weight exercises. She's like a potty mouthed, weight lifting, michael pollen.

    1. YES! Tricep dips!

      Good tips in that article--thanks. I like the fact that she backs it up with relevant stats & studies. I really need to schedule some resistance training in. I think I do okay with light cardio--just not having a car or even a U-pass anymore means I walk or bike a few hours a week--but the only weight training I get is lifting Sprout.
