FitReaders: Weekly Check-in Jun 23

So, it turns out yoga classes are just not in the cards for me at this point. I have some tendon issues in my palm that I aggravated and it is preventing me from putting any pressure on my hand and that means no yoga for the time being. But, I found some good strength-training workouts that I've been doing that I actually like, so I am substituting that for now - a leg workout and an arm workout. My goal is to do the leg and arm workout on alternating days. I started this past week and so far so good!
June Goals: 

  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend  - 9/10, 2/4
  • 30 minutes of active walking every day, M-F - 5/5 (thank goodness for having to walk the dogs everyday!)
  • Attend at least 1 yoga class/week - on hold for the time being.
  • Eat mindfully/eat enough - Yes

Jun 10:  12,640 steps

  1. Kristin, you are doing very well, fitness-wise, although yoga must be on hold right now. Our dogs happily contribute to our step count, don't they? Our small dog even goes on runs with us (usually 4 mi.). Have a relaxing Sunday.

  2. Oh.... I can see how yoga is a no go with hand/wrist problems. You could probably get away with child's pose for down dog, but there are a lot of poses and twists that use wrists/hands. I hope you enjoy your new workout!
