Day 10: 31 Days of Exercise

Van Gogh - Zwei grabende Bäuerinnen auf schneebedecktem Feld
  • AM: 15 minutes stairs, jumping jacks, lunges, walking in place, whatever. Get the blood moving. Sigh. It's almost 1 in the afternoon. I think I'm going to call this one a Fail. I could've sworn it was 11:30 five minutes ago. Maybe my computer's clock is off? Note to self: Exercise First Thing In The Morning!
  • Noon: 30 minutes out in the cold... weeding... Done. Sorta. Switched to 30 minutes doing stairs, jumping jacks, walking in place, lunges, dancing about. I'm going to wait for it to get above freezing before I do the weeding. Call me fussy.
