30 Day Fitness Challenge -Day 13

Active Challenge:  Accumulate at least 15 minutes of extra walking today.  I can say I did this, but it wasn’t walking it was running.  I ran 2 miles today instead of my normal 1.5 miles.  I also made sure to speed up and try to max myself at least 3 times during the run.

Exercise Challenge:  Do a steady light to medium cardio workout for 20 minutes or more.  I did some dancing with the kids.  It’s pretty easy.  I like to dance and I don’t get to very often anymore so I dance with the kids.  Normally I do this when I’m trying to get one of the babies to bed.  Today it was Fionna.  So I used her as my partner and we waltzed, cha cha’d, and did some Eastern swing until she fell asleep.

Flexibility Challenge-stretching:  I did stetches twice today, once before working out and once after.

Nutrition Challenge:  examine your eating patterns.  Log what you eat, what your energy levels were, how full you felt, etc.  I didn’t really do this today.  I can tell you what I ate, but I did not pay attention to anything else.  For breakfast we had yogurt with fruit, snack was a piece of salt water taffy, lunch was leftover steaks with salad, and supper was popcorn.

Mind/Body Challenge:  to have 3 minutes of total relaxation.  Nope did not even try to make this happen.  With 8 sick kids there was no way this was going to come about!

Make sure to go over and see what Kandi at Gluten Free For Jen has been up to.
