**Day 158**

Oh my gosh, it was hot out today!!  I spent a total of 20 minutes outside, and came in with the worst headache!  It doesn't take much for the heat to, negatively, affect me.  Thankfully, I didn't have to run outside today - I don't think I would have survived it!  Today was a treadmill workout - I did 2 miles.  I walked 1 mile, and then the second mile I alternated walking and running, doing some interval bursts.  I really enjoy it.  I, also, did some strength training for my arms using dumbbells.  I really want to try to firm up these flabby arms of mine!

I'm having a hard time staying motivated to do the 30 Day Shred every single day because, well, it's a little boring doing the same workout every day.  Don't get me wrong, it's a challenge, and a great workout, but I have such a hard time getting myself motivated to do it every day.  I don't know, maybe I'm just making excuses not to do it, but my new plan is to do the Shred every other day, and do my new FIRM dvd on the other days.  So, for the rest of this month my goal is to do the Shred Mon., Wed., Fri., and the FIRM Tues., Thurs., Sat. - Sundays I won't be doing any dvd workouts.

It's going to be another hot day tomorrow, and I'll have to do my run outside, but, hopefully, it won't be so bad around 9pm when I, usually, go out to do the run.  What about you?  Is it hard for you to exercise on very hot days?


  1. I get really bad heat headaches, too - I make sure I drink even more water than I usually do, that helps. These days it's been in the 90s and if you can down 120-155 oz. without peeing like crazy - that means your body needs the water!

  2. Hi, Mary. I'm drinking tons of water, but this headache doesn't want to go away! I'm really hoping it will be gone when I wake up! Dang headaches!
