My Minutes:
8/1: 32 min Wii Fit, 70 min walk, 18 min bike (4 miles)
8/2: 33 min walk/run (C25K W6 D2), 60 min walk

The walk last night was to relieve the discomfort of overeating. I took the anniversary celebrating a touch too far and paid for it...UGH!!
I also didn't get to buy my akle weight yesterday since the sporting goods store was closed, so we're buying it today and I'm doing the st'ing tonight. Good luck to everyone today!

I'm going to jump right in since its the beginning of the month. My goal for this week is to workout atleast 4x. I usually start Mondays with full steam ahead, but then by mid week I find excuses for not to workout. I think I'm also getting tired of the same gym routine. I'm for sure going to the gym tonight. My goal is to do 45 minutes of cardio.

Wow, ok so my earlier bragging might have been a bit soon... I am sore and tired today! However, I did drag my butt to Curves this afternoon to put in my workout but I am going to be rescheduling things so I don't do both in one day for a while.

Progress:
Curves: 2
C25K: w1d1 complete
