9: 30 squats
10: 20 squats
11: 5900 steps (12 minutes jogging)
12: 6060 steps (25 minutes walking)
13: 7015 steps (13 minutes jogging)
14: 7057 steps (17 minutes jogging; 14 minutes walking)

I've decided that instead of having a set goal, I need to just exercise every day, regardless of what that is. It seems that as soon as I set a goal, I don't want to do it! Also, squats were really messing with my knees so I need to build them up slowly rather than jumping in with 30. I've started jogging on the spot, which is something new for me and is giving me some cardio. I'm only doing a little at the moment because running of any kind is a totally new thing for me, but I'm enjoying it. One day I might even leave the house and do it outside!

Newlyn, for me to get the proper squat form, I have to wrap an exercise band around my knees (not the knobby part of the knee....above that!). It helps my valgus knee problem. (This may NOT be your knee issue, so bear with me!)

Here are some other ideas:

I did get to the gym on Saturday. A 75-minute cardio session. Felt great. A few weights at the end, but nothing to write home about.

Today, I did heavy lifting, but only got in about 30 minutes (I usually aim for 45). I also did 40 minutes of step-cardio and a light stretch afterward (again, too short....I needed double the time.)

The weather is FINALLY starting to change. I will build in some afternoon walking on some days just to keep me away from the pantry. Nothing dramatic. Even a walk around the block helps!
