      Thanks Ann-Core.

      Just been doing walks and Wii Fit. Going to start the Gladiator Training Plan.

      Finished The Hourglass Workout with EC after warming up with the WiiFit. It gave me the first day of 15 mins. Looking forward to this path.

        Totally forgot about The Hourglass, but it's a really useful workout, thanks for reminding me! Good luck with Gladiator!

          Ann-Core; it really is a nice little workout.

            Day 2 of The Gladiator plan is a rest/casual day. My four year old was really antsy after a hearing test (he passed with flying colours) so we went to a park with hills and I did 30 minutes of walking about while he ran circles around me until capping it with time on the playground. So happy that we're slowly getting into livable weather.

              Did the Armageddon workout yesterday after 10 mins of a Wii Fit warmup; for the Arm Day. It is a Very nice workout.
              Leg day today. Sticking to easy workouts for the first month; then we'll see where I am. Since the easy workouts for legs are either short or currently too taxing for my non-existent core I did 20 mins of Wii Fit before the Glutes, Quads, Hamstrings & Calves workout to make sure I got my 15.

              So Day 4 of 15 mins.

                Mental health is taking a hit lately; but forcing myself to fight through the 15 mins per day with the games (wiifit) at least. That puts me at + four more days-ish. So Day 8 of 15. I did; on an awesome note; get the rest of my book boxes sorted and the books entered into Goodreads. No more buying duplicates! One more bookshelf to buy and we'll be done. The book box moving is part of why I haven't been doing my Gladiator. Still working on sorting out my diet. I got the calories about figured out but the sodium content has been... well... 2-3 times the correct dosage. (I'm doing calories-in calories-out; partly because I have a bad habit of not eating at all when I have a bad mental health day).

                  Day 9 of 15.
                  15 mins on treadmill (10 at 3.0 incline). Then the Full Body Works workout. That was enjoyable but dang my legs are not happy. Doesn't help that it's super hot still. (Seems common for this area to tease fall then heat back up for a couple weeks again)

                    Day 12 of 15

                    Been having trouble keeping on track with Gladiator. I'm trying to fix my sleep schedule now that baby is Currently sleeping 8 hours a stretch. Thus my sleep count has been more dismal than I like. As a result my fifteen minutes has been a mix of walking/herding my toddler and wiifit. Today I finally got a bit more sleep and I decided 'hey. I should workout now; Before baby and toddler wake up. Logic yay!' So; since I'm also bad about warm-ups and stretching/cool downs I added those and did the following:

                    Fighter's Warmup (Only one I saw that didn't have hopping; I live on the third floor of an apartment). It did well to warm me up; I enjoyed it.
                    The White Rabbit Workout. I saw that this one was the workout of the day and decided to give it a go since it's a Level II workout. I didn't try for EC but I have to say the March steps helped my lower back pain.
                    Gravity Hold II Workout for closing. This one the squat holds helped my lower back pain even more. It was so nice not to have pain there. (My partner hasn't been able to help me with diaper changes because of vertigo problems so I've been bending over a lot).

                    It was a comfortable workout. I think for now I'll try to do workout of the day or a random Lvl II while I decide where to go from here. If; by the end of next month; baby is still sleeping 8 hour stretches I'll look at a Training plan or Program. I'm also debating marking my weight/measurement progress on here. Not sure though. Super embarrassed by my current weight still. Meh. I'll think on it. I want too keep myself accountable as much as possible; hence the consideration.

                      Day 13 of 15

                      Went for a non-cardio main workout today.

                      Started with Cardio Rehab Workout. Only did one set as I was using it as a warm-up.
                      Followed that with the Booty Builder Workout. It was much more difficult than I was expecting; especially the lifts. I managed though; plus bridges are suggested for rebuilding abs after a c-section. Why I chose it actually. (Also part of why my core strength was/is so bad at the moment.
                      Finished with Full Body Stretch.

                        Day 14 of 15

                        Got a sudden high-pain migraine last night. It's just now starting to fade.
                        I ended up doing a cardio/strength combo workout. My partner was having a decent evening so I took baby in her carrier on my chest and he helped four year old to start learning how to bike and we went for a walk. (Biking only for a few minutes as I don't want kiddo to get angry/frustrated if he doesn't pick it up quickly). Wearing baby on my chest ended up putting more strain on my legs than I expected. It was a good workout; and helped my migraine a touch. I'll have to do it for my evening walks every time my partner can walk. (I've been leaving baby and partner behind and just getting baby fresh air on the balcony).

                          Day 15 of 30

                          Feeling a bit better today.
                          This morning I started out with the Fighter's Warmup, followed that with the Suckerpunch Workout and finished with Gravity Hold Workout. It was a good workout. My legs were very tired by the end but I'm mobile now several hours later so I don't believe I overdid it. It's too hot to take my normal walk today so balcony for everyone!
                          I've lost 0.2 lbs since last week which would be a bummer but 1) migraine which equals fluid retention. 2) This strongly suggests some muscle growth which makes me happy.

                            Day 16 of 30

                            Didn't feel like putting my legs through anything much after yesterday so did an arm workout.
                            Started with one set of Biceps & Triceps Light Workout
                            Did the Arms 360 Workout. It really started tugging on my right Tri during the last set. All good though; I kept an eye on it and nothing past an early warning twinge that didn't happen again after I checked my form. I have to use a higher platform so far for the dips. Partly because my chairs just feel too narrow and it sets off my anxiety. Pah; nothing to it but to keep moving forward.
                            Finished it off with the Arms & Chest Stretch. The overhead one felt So good.

                            Baby was fascinated by all of it and didn't pitch a fit; just watched from her chair-thing and tried to move her arms and clench her hands. She's almost four months so she's mostly figured out head control and is working on her limbs. She's trying to crawl instead of roll over and it just makes me think of this -->
