To Skip A Day, Take Every Other Day Off...Or not...That is the Question!

Our first weigh in is creeping up...only 9 days away. I'm beginning to get a tad nervous. The scale has been stuck for me....this stupid foot issue is seriously impeding my working out. I am working out still, just not the way I would need to to see more progress.

On that subject, I am toying with the idea of skipping a day in between workouts, taking every other day off, once I hit 100 days of consecutive daily exercise, which will happen in 23 days. Don't know for sure yet....what do you think? What are you doing?


Last night I decided to TRY my exercise bike. It has been about 3 weeks since last time I was able to use it. I was sooooo happy. I did 30 min. pain free...and could have gone longer, except that it was 11:20 pm when I began, and I was just too tired. I've decided to incorporate the bike with my upper body medicine ball and my floor work.

Skipping excercise will totally depend on you! You might feel you need a break or you might feel depressed on days you don't exercise. If you are going to exercise everyday, you definitely need to be switching things up! I run 4 days a week. Go to the trainer once a week and do the Jillian Michaels video 5 or 6 days a week. I often do not exercise on Sunday!

I DO feel good exercising every day...and I DO switch it up...but I can't do as much as I want with this foot thing. I'm hoping once it's taken care of, I'll be able to do more and go more intense too. It's interesting to see what other people do. One day, when I'm at your weight and fitness level, I will up my ante too. For now, It's a work in progress, and a lesson in patience.

Any chance you can swim? Low impact with a high energy work out! If it's possible give it a shot!
