#NYTWellChallenge – 2/11

Today we were exhorted to MOVE. I’m having a really hard time because it’s snowing – hard!

The New York Times Wellness Challenge for today was a 6 minute workout. Because I’m OLD, and because I have a problem with balance, my knees, and getting down on the floor and standing up again, I modified their suggestions.

Jumping Jacks – I didn’t really jump, but I bounced on my toes and used my arms like I was supposed to. – 30 sec.

Rest 15 sec.

Standing Lunges – I did the lunges while using the wall for support to keep me from ending up on my tush. – 30 sec.

Rest 15 sec.

Kneeling Push ups – I did wall push ups. – 30 sec.

Rest 15 sec.

Plank – I did a seated plank. – 30 sec.

Rest 15 sec.

Rinse and repeat.

I managed to do the Yoga poses on the bed – 30 sec. each

I’m keeping up with my 250 steps an hour by walking around in my house. I’ll have to do some more sustained pacing, obviously, to get 10,000 steps.
