I’m finally getting better at staying consistent with my workouts., just not at posting this post on time. Working out from home is always challenge but these past two weeks I tried to stay focused as I had my first 10 km race to kinda prepare for.

Tuesday 13 September, 2016 I missed my Monday walk so I did it on Tuesday. I know “they” say never miss a Monday, technically Sunday is the first day of the week. My pace is still very slow I walked 3, 7 km in 40 minutes. This brought me to 5812 minutes in total.

Tuesday 20 September , 2016 I always go to zumba workouts when i lazy or tired but this aerobic dance was planned and I extended by doing 15 minutes extra of freestly zumba and the total was 45 minutes, which brought me to 5991 minutes in total.

Wednesday  21 September , 2016  I didn’t have enough time so I did a jump rope session. I read somewhere that a 10 minute jump rope session is equivalent to a 30 minute jog. I did 20 minutes of this and it brought me to 6011 minutes in total.

Sunday 25 September, 2016 was a recovery day. My knees and bum hurt so bad.

I am now 4704 minutes away from meeting my goal challenge of exercising 10950 minutes which is 30 minutes of exercise everyday. I’m not sure if I’ll get there but I’ll keep trying. I already know I’m better than were I was this time  last year.

How do you track your workouts?

Product review: GUM soft picks


  1. Hello! 😀 Just came across your blog! I actually track all of my workouts with my runkeeper app. I love that it allows you to log pretty much everything. While I use the GPS for my outside runs, if I’m in the gym, treadmill, elliptical, bike, even strength training, I log in my runkeeper!
    I do, also, try to put most of my workouts on my instagram page! (I’m getting_fit_in_indy if you’re interested!).
    I’m excited to follow your blog! 🙂

    • Thank you Keri-Ann for reading and following my blog. I’ve followed you on Instagram 🙂 and checked out your blog too.
