Default Maintainers moving in November!

Get moving! Post whatever you do that's active -- it doesn't have to be intentional exercise.

OK, friends. I have sawn up a lot of timber (hand saw not chain saw). I almost have the 'kit' fot the new wood shelter ready now. And the drill has gone on the blink so that's tomorrow blown out of the water.

I have done so much sawing these past weeks and I can feel the improvement in my arms and back, and in my breathing and heart rate recovery.

Sunday--35 minutes of elliptical at over 200 steps/minute (no inclines, though--sore legs)
Monday--29-minute pilates workout (LOVE pilates! I wish it counted as aerobic exercise so I could do it every day, but, alas, it only counts as resistance training).

Nov. 1: 65 minutes boxing boot camp

I fell and hurt my tailbone yesterday and almost didn't go to the gym but I didn't want to start November off badly. I didn't exercise nearly as much as I usually do in October and my weight is up so I'm going to try to stay consistent in November. I was able to do most of the class. The only part I couldn't do was the ab work on the bosu ball. When everyone did that, I stood and did more barbell work.

November totals:

1 day
65 minutes

Weds, Nov. 3: 45 minutes spin class
30 minutes Pilates routine

Dispirited by counselor at the Health Fair, so much so that I wanted to do the self-sabotaging thing of not exercising AT ALL, nevertheless I drove home in the early dark, changed, and got my butt to the gym. And had a very fun & inspiring spin session, which the instructor based on movie music. (We did a hill climb to "Gonna Fly Now" from "Rocky" & sprinted to "Maniac" from "Fashdance" -- the latter was such a blast, I think it's going on my iPod, too.) I'm glad I went & now that I've slept on it, I think I'm over that.

Saef, what did the health fair counselor say?!?!

I am very psyched right now because after being stuck home with a sick-ish child all day (can't take her to the gym if she's too "sick" for school), I went to the gym after dinner and had a great run!

November 4:
4 mile treadmill run
~44 minutes (had some technical difficulties)
