My first full day of the challenge and I'm sick. Naturally. Strep throat. Anywho, I finished my stuff. The only symptom I'm having is a mildly sore throat, so I battled through (with LOTS of water)!
Active challenge: at least 15 minutes of walking up stairs or hills
I broke this up into 3-5 minute intervals. Hard to breathe through my mouth with a sore throat. It was tiring and by the last one, my calves felt like they were going to burst. And the dog thought I had gone nuts.
Exercise challenge: at least 30 minutes of cardio
Times like this I'm thankful for the Gazelle in the basement. And the tv. And the dvd player. Watching my favorite episode of Eureka, I plowed through the beginner training interval. It was easy, just tired feet afterwards, as usual.
Flexibility challenge: at least 5 minutes of stretching after cardio and seated stretching routine
Did both. I love simple stretches. My favorite part of a workout.
Nutritional challenge: eat vegetables at every meal (except breakfast)
Easy enough. Progresso soup for lunch and some broccoli with my curried turkey burger for dinner. Yum!
Mind/body challenge: one-minute meditation
Super easy. And relaxing. Just lie on the floor and breathe. Clear mind after everything today.
Considering my throat and all, I say I started out pretty well. I'll be at home again tomorrow, so hope I can keep it up. I tend to get lazy at home all the time.
