BSG Challenge Blog Week 3, Exercises that work for me! Silver Belles

Saturday, December 22, 2012

I have been thinking about the kind of exercise that I do every week and how it has helped me keep on working towards a healthier lifestyle. Some of this may sound a little strange but it works for me.

1. My number one exercise is Walking. I walk no less than a 1/2 a mile a day. Normally though it is a full mile walk every morning with my dog Katie. I average 6 to 7 miles a week. Walking has helped me build up my stamina, I can remember when just 2 years ago that walking a couple of blocks would have out of breath and needing a break half way through.

2. Number 2 exercise is Strenght Training. I try to do at least 10 minutes of strenght training every other day. It has helped tone some of my muscles. I need to work at getting ST in.

3. I also do yoga twice a week. It has helped me with my coordination and balance. It has also keeps me limber and more flexible.

Those are my most basic of exercise and they have helped me lose the 28lbs that I have lost since June of this year. I have other little things I do but these are my mainstay.

    Since I broke my leg and am able to do low impact exercising I've been doing Leslie Sansone's walking videos on YouTube. They've definitely helped my leg feel better and I haven't weighed but I think I have lost some weight. I think it's emoticon that you have worked up to walking 6 - 7 miles a week! I'm sure Katie loves it! I love emoticon Yoga but haven't been able to do it much since I broke my leg. I think I might have enough strength in my leg now though that I could probably do some. I do ST twice a week but am hoping to maybe start doing Chalene Extreme again next month. We'll have to see. You are doing fantastic! Keep up the great work! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I would love to try yoga. My gym offers it but at times that never work out with my schedule. I think it looks so peaceful (and challenging!).
