Fit Friday with Nichole!

These days my workouts have been taken down a few notches but I am determined to make sure they do not become nonexistent. The gym is also a no-go, I am still teaching a few classes and training a couple of long term clients, but I am minimizing gym time and not working out there due to no white blood cells. All of this means that I am working out at home or heading out for fresh air.

My first goal is one mile a day, even on rough days I know that I will feel better if I get up and walk a mile. This isn’t for time, this isn’t even really for fitness, it is simply to make sure I am getting my body moving. Getting fresh air. Letting my joints and muscles move.

A mile is a day is only on low level energy days. On my mid level days and days when there is no escaping without kiddos I grab some weights and jump on the treadmill for a circuit workout. Instead of going with a speed on the treadmill I am going with an effort level, some days it is a solid walk (4.3), some days I am aiming to run a mile (7.5), and many days I am somewhere in between.

No matter what level I get this done at, I am happy that I got it done.
