The small voice in my head is saying I've got to kick it up a notch to get the results I want, so I'm really excited about this challenge accountability thread.

3 - none
4 - none

5 - Weight Training (A-2)
6 - Cardio (2x 10min dance video)

9 - 80 min walking
10 - 40 min walking
11 - 40 min walking
12 - :(
13 - 100 min (60 yoga, 40 walking)
14-22 - too much work... too little movement...
23 - 60 min walking
