Readers’ Workouts – 4/5

Readers’ Workouts – 4/5

If you’re here for the A to Z challenge, scroll down for my D post.

Readers workouts

Here are my steps for the week. I actually made my week overall, thanks to my two gym workouts.


My fitbit app added a new section, number of hours with 25o steps. So far for today I’m at 1 of 9. I still have enough hours left to do all 9. I wonder how much walking 250 steps is. It can’t be more than a few minutes, right?

My current plan is to do cardio on Tuesday (60 mins), upper body on Wednesday, cardio on Thursday (60 mins), a total body workout on Friday, cardio on Saturday (60+ mins), and a core workout on Monday . This week I finished the the 30 Days Pilates Challenge at The Balanced Life, but I think I’m going to stick with doing a short Pilates workout each day.

Tuesday – 65 mins elliptical. Walk with the dog. Pilates (legs)

Wednesday – Pilates (full body). 15 mins abs.

Thursday – 15 mins stair machine, 16 mins elliptical. Pilates (full body)

Friday – 27 min full body workout. Pilates (legs)

Saturday – Pilates (stretch). Mini-golf (yeah, I know it’s not really exercise, but it’s at least semi-active and fun.)

Sunday – 4 miles on the treadmill. Pilates (abs)

Monday – (Forgot my fitbit in the morning.) Pilates. 25 mins core workout. 10 mins stretching.

I usually listen to a book while I’m walking, jogging, whatever. This week I’m listening to The Janus Affair by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris.

2016 miles: 114.81

How was your week? Readers’ Workouts is hosted by Joy at Joy’s Book Blog.


  1. Wow, your steps are impressive!

    I love mini golf, and I consider it a workout because of all the walking, bending, arm swinging and going up and down stairs. We are hoping to go play this Sunday. If not, we’ll go bowling.

    So, I am here from the A to Z Challenge, but I had to comment here. Congrats on doing such a great job! I try to stay motivated and my goal is 30 minutes of Cardio Monday – Friday with strength every other day. I can’t get to the gym so I am just left with what I can do at home. I love my Fitbit though because it helps me keep track of where I am. I have a goal of 366 miles this year and I am already at almost 200! Keep up the good work, because it doesn’t matter how you move, just that you move and keep moving! Cassie from Mommy, RN

    That sounds useful to have a check on how many hours we walk at least a little bit. I’ve been hearing that one of the worst things we can do is sit all day — even if we exercise, too.
