It’s a typical wet and rainy day here in Vancouver, so I have to admit I’m a little happy I’m not a child who’s planning to go trick-or-treating tonight. I AM however planning on buying some cheap Halloween chocolate this afternoon 😉
So my predication last week about the challenges I would face in getting 10 minutes of activity each day this week rang true. Since I’m taking a rest week after my half marathon on Sunday, I just really want to be lazy! 😛 Buuuut I still scraped by with the bare minimum!
Sunday: Ran a half marathon. You can read allll about it here
Monday: Walked to my orthodontist appointment, which takes about an hour. I’m not counting my regular walking as activity since I walk so much, but I had the option of driving or taking transit so I think this counts 🙂
It’s a beautiful walk that I always enjoy, and it gives me a chance to listen to a podcast episode or two! After grabbing my post-ortho froyo (a must-have) I took transit home. These legs did not want to walk anymore!
Tuesday: I had plans to go to hot yoga…and then I slept. for 11 hours! I guess my body needed the rest. During my break at work I did some dynamic stretches and walked around the stairwells for 10 minutes.
Wednesday: 10 minutes of yoga.
Thursday: 15 minutes of some easy yoga flows and stretching.
Today: So far I’ve been parked on my butt most of the morning (with the exception of standing breaks every 20 minutes!), but I plan to do some rolling and stretching as soon as I’m finished writing, and then I’ll go for a walk around the block once I’ve finished a few more tasks.
Tomorrow: I’ll be teaching my Cross-Training for Runners class in the morning and I’ll probably stick around at the gym and do some easy cardio on a bike. I’ve been enjoying my rest week, but I’m getting ready to get sweaty again!
How about you? What did you do to get active for 10 minutes each day this week? Did you find yourself struggling at all? Doing anything fun for Halloween tonight?

ALSO! I totally meant to mention this in an earlier post this week, but beginning this Sunday I will be starting a program called the 21 Day Feel Good Diet! It’s all about discovering YOUR optimal diet and learning how to create a healthy relationship with food.
Included is a 22-page e-guide, a private Facebook group with motivation and support, health & fitness tips, exercise ideas, and more. If you’re interested, you can check out the original post here. Registration closes tonight, so if you’re interested you better jump on that train!
