Last month I set some goals for myself to do 100 pushups, 100 ab crunches and 100 calories burned on the exercise bike. I did pretty good at being consistent. The pushups and crunches were skipped a few times but for the most part, I stuck to it. The bike, not so much. I’ve developed some tremors in my limbs and when I ride the bike for a long duration, I am too shaky to walk afterwards. We’re only talking 20 to 30 minutes. And then I shake. So I was a little bad and skipped the bike a lot of times, haha.
This month, I am staying with 100 pushups. I can do 20 before my arms start to shake. So I rest a minute and do another 20. I am finding that what works best for me is 50 at the beginning of the day and 50 later in the evening.
Ab crunches – I can do the full 100 with no problems so I am planning on doing those in the mornings.
Bike – I’ve decided to try 10 minutes after breakfast, 10 minutes after lunch and 10 minutes after dinner. That way, I get in a full 30 minutes but hopefully avoid the tremors in my legs. I’ve read that accumulated exercise is as beneficial as exercise completed all at the same time so I’m going to try this out for November.
Finally, I have decided to chart my workouts this month. It will give me more accurate feedback on how well I am doing and will encourage me to better stick with it, I think.
So, that’s my plan for this month. Wishing you all a healthy November ❤
