            Wobble board looks like fun!!


              DorothyMH, it is fun. (My 3-year-old granddaughter loves it!) They had them at my grocery store for $6, so i figured i'd try it out. It is supposed to help strengthen core and hip/knee/ankle joints as well as help with balance. I am still researching and trying to figure out how to best use it, how often, how long, etc.

              FRIDAY 29 JANUARY 2021


              Elliptical: 1.1 miles; 18 minutes
              Our Rec Centre has a few different types of elliptical machines, and i used a different one today than previously. I did NOT like this one; it hurt my knees a bit.

              15 minutes on (and off) the Wobble Board including:
              Easy Core Challenge: day 25
              De-Stress Challenge: day 21

                          Review of goals for past week:

                          Yoga 5/7
                          every day is ideal, but 5/7 is acceptable

                          Challenges: Continue with Easy Core and De-stress every day 7/7
                          Workouts: 10 Light Difficulty workouts during the week 9/10
                          Daily Dares: when doable 2

                          Rec Centre
                          Elliptical (or other cardio) 2x 1/2

                          Food Log too much late night snacking not recorded; need to figure out how to deal with this
                          Veg every day


                            Oh wow, your husband is doing awesome too! Almost 35th anniversary!

                              I don't know if this is part of your plan, or something that would be feasible for you, but: when I made changes to my diet, one of the changes I wanted to make was to stop snacking after dinner. So what I do is I log my food for the day immediately after I've eaten dinner. This way the food log gets done, and now I "can't" have anything more to eat because my report for the day has already been written. (Technically, of course, I could still go back and edit my log if I had a good reason for doing so. But having the log already done serves as a deterrent for casual slip ups.)
