Default EXERCISE Accountability January 2009



This is the brand-spanking-new exercise accountability thread for the first month of the new year. Whether you walk, run, swim, cycle, bellydance, or shred, let's start off the new year right!



Welcome to the exercise accountability thread for January 2009. This thread is to keep up accountable and keep us motivated and above all to keep us moving! All are welcome, and feel free to join the thread at any time. Some people post a goal for the month, some just keep track of what they do every day. It's not important how you do it, we just need to do it!!

I started the year off right--I kicked my own butt!

01 - 10 min rowing machine, 10 min treadmill (at some crazy setting I hadn't tried before), 10 min stationary bike; 25 min resistance/abs, 25 min stretching/yoga.
02 - 20 min on the rowing machine and 20 min on the treadmill, both HIIT (and the treadmill program went to 10% incline ); and 20 min stretching/yoga
03 - 15x200m intervals on the rowing machine; 10 min on the treadmill, 5 mph at 2% incline; then 30 min or so of resistance, 10 min of stretching
04 - Walk to the grocery store, about 15 min
05 - Bike to work and back, about 50 min
06 - Bike to work and back, about 50 min
07 - 30 min on the treadmill (2x10 min running intervals) and 45-min stability ball class
08 - 3x10-min running, with 10x1 min HIIT inervals, plus min walking; 45-min yoga class
09 - 45-min yoga class
10 - 30 min/6000 m on the rowing machine
11 - Walk to groceries, 30 min; bike to work, 25 min; 60-min stability ball class
12 - 6K on the treadmill, 5 min stretching
13 - 30 min on the treadmill, on a random setting (much more incline than I'm used to)
14 - 14 min on the bike (in the mode when you can set your target heart rate and keep it there--I like!; and 45-min stability ball class that kicked my butt...bless the instructor's cruel, cruel heart...
15 - 6K on the treadmill; 60-min yoga class
16 - 45-min yoga class
17 - 40 min or so on the treadmill, including 10 min HIIT, and 10 min screwing around trying to figure out the right setting (stupid old treadmill); 30 min strength/core
18 - 20 min on the treadmill; 60-min stability ball class
19 - 6000m on the rowing machine
20 - 30 min on the treadmill, 13 x 1 min HIIT
21 - 45-min stability ball class; 4000 metres/20 min on the rowing machine
22 - 45-min hi-low class; 60-min yoga class
23 - 45-min yoga class; 20 min on the treadmill
24 - 15 min yoga, trying a new pose. Which doesn't really count as exercise, but I'm putting it anyway
25 - 60-min hi-low class; 60-min stability ball class
26 - 45-min sculpt class; 30 min on the stationary bike
27 - 20 min on the treadmill; 60-min ashtanga class (I specify ashtanga instead of regular yoga because I am tired and sore now and am trying to feel like less of a wimp)
28 - 20-min HIIT on the treadmill; 45-min stability ball class
29 - 45-min hi-low class; 60-min yoga class (and I was the only one in class, so I had the instructor all to myself--yay!)
30 - 45-min yoga class
31 -
