Promises, promises. I wanted to update sooner than this, but alas we’ve been super busy with friends and family this whole week. We are making up for lost time since moving back to Portland; we want to see everyone! It will take us a while, but we are off to a great start.
The last 3 days of exercise look like this:
Walked 7 miles
Ran 3 miles
Did one KB workout
(I’ll spare you the details this time.) ;)
AND I’m participating in the Elf4Health Challenge, and it is so much fun! We are paired up with a fellow Elf for moral support, not to mention all of us Elves (over 800!) have created a lively community on social media. What great motivation to be your healthiest self!
Each day we have a new task to complete as a part of the challenge. There are food and fitness tasks, and those which make life easier and more enjoyable. For example, yesterday I cleaned up a ton of unwanted email subscriptions using unroll.me, which felt great. Today I was supposed to try a new workout.
I would LOVE to have taken a Zumba class, as I’ve never done it and I used to be a dancer. It looks fun! I’ve done so much fitness-related, it’s hard for me to find something truly new. But because today wasn’t super convenient due to Thanksgiving prep and it being my brother’s birthday, I’ll save my new workout for this weekend, after the holiday. I’ll need it, right? But, I can possibly stretch the rules a little and consider the fact that I went shopping without my son (!!!!) and walked all around the store, my new workout for today. Haha… Hey, it doesn’t ever happen. I kid, I kid…I don’t really consider this a workout.
Happy Thanksgiving! Food post to come on Friday!
