So, my first three weeks of my 51 week project ended yesterday. I am really happy with how things went. I walked 16 days out of 21 and two of those I substituted a stepping workout. My plan was to walk 6 days out of 7, so the 16 plus the stepping workouts makes it all even out. My strength workouts were also planned for 6 days a week. I had successful results with those too, I didn’t miss a day.
Happy side effects are that I am drinking more water and my clothes are fitting better. Looking forward to adding on to my good habits in the next 3 weeks.
Phase 2 is all about me taking care of me. It’s flu season and I need to make sure I am getting enough rest. I am hoping that if I can get a routine going for mornings and nighttime that I will feel more rested and less tired throughout the day.
I will be continuing with the daily walking maybe going for 0.70 miles a day instead of time. I will work on adding more distance each week. My strength workouts are looking good too. New exercises will be added each week for upper body and lower body. I will throw in abs starting tomorrow.
Phase 2: Day 1 I had a good walk. it was a bit shorter than normal because it started to rain about half way through. I was planning on backtracking on the last little bit. When I got back to the house I decided to cut it short. I was getting cold. I got some good stretching done. The backs of my legs have been very tight. Hopefully, I will be able to loosen them up. My morning routine went well and I left myself a note about tonight’s routine.
