Exercise Challenge: Month 9, Week 2

Sunday I biked to the Croatian Cultural Centre to volunteer for Modo at Got Craft! market, then over to the Vancouver Mom staff Christmas party & home again. Total riding was 45 minutes.
Monday I biked over to Michael's to pick up some Christmas crafting supplies: pony beads, sparkly pipe cleaners & a gingerbread house kit. Total riding time was about 20 minutes.
Tuesday I didn't leave the house until evening when I went to party. I walked there, but it was literally just around the corner--not enough to count as exercise.
Wednesday I walked to the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House wearing Sprout to help set up for the big holiday party. Later I biked downtown for a cocktail party at Hawksworth Communications. 60 minutes of exercise.
Thursday I walked to the MPNH & back pushing the stroller full of Sprout, my stilts & my fairy costume. I also stilted for an hour, but it's not really cardio, so I won't count that. 20 minutes of walking.
Friday I made it to Fitcamp! With cycling up there & the class, it came to 80 minutes of exercise.
Saturday I got in a little bit of walking--maybe 10 minutes total.

Weekly Total: 235 minutes. I have to say, getting exercise, when much of what I normally do is outdoors, is challenging when the weather is so cold & wet. It's been a few weeks since I hit my goal of 280 minutes a week. I'm going to keep on keeping on & shoot for better next week. :)

Nothing says “best gift ever” like a caribou!
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.
