Adventures in Fitness Friday – Status Quo

Posted Apr 30 2010 12:00am

This week was somewhat boring in terms of working out.  I didn’t do any new workouts, and to be honest, I had to force myself to do the workouts that I completed. 

Saturday, April 24off day.  I felt really lazy and listless all day.

Sunday, April 25 – I spent over 3 hours  cleaning the entire house.  One of those really good cleans that involves vacuuming and mopping and laundry and organizing.  I’m only going to count 2 hours, which earned me 8 APs. And before you think that’s overkill, I will tell you that I was sore for a few days afterward, so I think every one of those APs was well deserved. 

Monday, April 26 – off.  Busy day at work and then a grocery shopping trip.

Tuesday, April 27Wii Fit Plus for 45 minutes.  I knew that I was going to be busy after work, so I made sure to do the workout before I went in.  I always enjoy morning workouts.  4 APs.

Wednesday, April 28 – After rainy weather on Monday and Tuesday, I was so happy to finally see it stop on Wednesday, so I headed outside for a long walk.  It was terribly windy, but I just breathed in the fresh air and was thankful for the break in the rain.  I walked for 1 hour and earned 6 APs.

Thursday, April 29 – This morning I did another Wii Fit workout for 45 mintues, because I knew I was going to happy hour with a few colleagues after work.  I earned 4 APs.

Friday, April 30 – I haven’t had a chance to workout yet today, but since I get to leave work at 11:30 and the sun is shining, I’m going to go on a bike ride for at least 30 minutes.  I’ll earn 3 APs.

All in all, I earned 25 APs throughout the week, which I’m actually really proud of.  I felt like I really wasn’t doing enough activity, but when I just stopped to add it all up, I actually got quite a bit in.  That’s the thing that I want to try to keep in mind, it all does add up, and I don’t always have to hit the gym in order to keep up this active lifestyle. 

I have some really exciting and unique activities planned for next week (starting tomorrow!) and I can’t wait to do them.  Definitely come back next week to read all about it.
