Getting back into the exercise routine
Wednesday, January 20, 2010
I've been doing the Boot Camp challenge this month in an effort to get myself back into the routine of daily exercise. It's been a challenge to keep at it, and I have to admit, I've missed a few days. But I'm not letting that get the better of me; I'm going to keep at it. I don't expect perfection anyway. If I can get myself back into a rhythm of power walking at least 5 days a week with a more leisurely walk on the weekend plus some kind of strength training on the weekdays, I'll be happy.
There are a couple of videos that I have a real problem with. The 1st cardio video has too much jumping, which I just don't seem to be able to do. So I substitute some other kind of cardio for the same amount of time. The other is the one from today, the 5-minute core workout on the balance ball. Parts of it are okay, but there are two parts that are very challenging. I did manage to avoid falling off the ball this week, so there's hope for me yet.
