I do not know why I bother because I cannot follow a schedule when it comes to my exercise routine. I usually just do whatever I am in the mood for, as you can probably tell from my workout log. I have only followed the rotation half-hearted the first week. But at least I am making progress.

My personal exercise routine
I try to follow the basic guidelines of 2-3 times per week of strength training and 1-2 times per week of cardio. 5 days a week for 30-45 minutes. This is in addition to walking 10,000 steps, 5 days a week. For some reason, without the work structure, I tend to not exercise during the weekends.
Most weeks I reach my goal. During the week when I have my period, I get half that amount of exercise.
Am I a skinny? No. Am I healthy? Relatively speaking yes! Do I have tons of energy? Oh yeah! And that is why I keep exercising.
Until next time and thanks for stopping by Small Steps to Health.
