Exercise Challenge: Month 8, Week 1

Our skid lids on the iBert
Sunday I went to the Mom Inc. tradeshow & did a lot of standing around, then some shopping at Costco, but only a short ten-minute walk to pick up the car.
Monday I worked the hell out of my legs with a gazillion walking lunges. Total exercise was about 70 minutes with the ride.
Tuesday I took Sprout to meet family at Brentwood mall. Walking to & from transit, plus some walking around in the mall, all while wearing Sprout in the Beco, should count as at least 40 minutes of exercise.
Wednesday I got some walking in, about 25 minutes.
Thursday I biked downtown & back, about 35 minutes all told.
Friday I made it to Fitcamp a second time & with the bike ride, got 75 minutes of exercise. We did a benchmarking class, recording our pushups, times & heart rate for various activities. At the moment, I can do nine push-ups from my knees. Here's hoping I can do more in a few months when we check again...
Saturday we walked to & from Mount Pleasant Park, about a half hour total.

Total Weekly Exercise: 285 minutes. Just squeaked past my goal of 40 minutes a day.

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

Nothing says “best gift ever” like a gray fox!
Starting at just $40, Gifts of Canadian Nature help protect habitat for Canada’s native wildlife. A Gift of Canadian Nature lasts for years to come and is a gift that gives thrice! Once to the recipient with a personalized certificate and a beautiful calendar, once to the giver with a charitable tax receipt, and once to Canadian wildlife. This year we are featuring the snowy owl, the grizzly bear, the caribou, the gray fox and the Canada lynx. Click the image or follow this link for more information.
