One of these weeks, I will learn and do a better job of tracking my exercise throughout the week and not leave it until Friday night.
I think I remember most of what I did though
Saturday: Nothing in particular or nothing memorable at least
Sunday: Off to Niagara we go - we did a good 40 minutes of walking up and down Clifton Hill. Played around in the water park too.
Monday: Another day in Niagara. More water park play and sight seeing. A bit of mini-golf too!
Tuesday: Home we go. After realizing I put on a good 6 lbs while away, I got on the treadmill and attempted to run. My foot gave me a bit of trouble, so I didn't push it.
Wednesday: Abby and I went for a good 30 minute walk. She was in the stroller, so I did push around a 40 lb weight. It was also Day 1 of my 30-Day Squat Challenge (50 squats)
Thursday: Walked the kids to daycare and school. Went for a 30 minute walk at work and proceeded on to Day 2 of the challenge (55 squats)
Friday: Walked the kids to school and daycare. After work, I went grocery shopping and to Costco.
I should also be on Day 3 of my squat challenge (60 squats), but I have held off tonight. I am having some problems with one of my incision sites from my surgery. It has only been bothering me since about Wednesday. I am not saying that it was the squats, because as of Wednesday, I also went back to my complete normal routine (carrying laundry, picking up the kids, carrying groceries, etc) But I decided with a heavy heart to skip my squats today to see if it improves. Personally, I prefer to blame the laundry and insist that from now on, it better be Brian's job! I do see the surgeon next week so at the very least, I will get some answers then.
The squats were starting to be effective though, as in I could feel them in my lower thighs, just above my knee caps. I didn't do them in sets, but did all 50 at once. I wasn't sure if I could at the beginning when I read over the challenge...but that is part of it right? To challenge yourself. It wouldn't be much of a challenge if I didn't at least try! Tomorrow was supposed to be a rest day from the squats, but if I feel things look good, I will try them.
