Have you recently fell off the workout wagon and then got back on? How did you ease yourself back into it? I’ve been hiking a lot — 3 times a week, for about 2 hours at a time. Admittedly, it’s not like a high intense workout, but I really look forward to it, and Mr. Peng and I try to find hard trails that we don’t mind getting lost in (just means more of a workout anyway!). Once summer ends and the days are too short, I’m going to join the local YMCA.
What small things did you do to get back in the workout swing of things?

i bought some yoga dvds and try to do them a few times each week, just 1/2 hour each. i’m trying to be realistic, and also cater to my laziness. honestly, though, i’ve been in the “getting back into stage” for an awfully long time.
but good for you, hiking is an awesome form of exercise!

I start going to classes two or three times a week, then work up to four days a week with extra cardio work in there. I do one pilates class a week and measure my progress by how long I can hold a solid plank =]. On cardio, I start with 30 minutes, then i move up to 45, then 60. When i do 45 and 60 minutes, though, I get off the machine halfway through to avoid jello legs

I’m temporarily off the workout wagon this week. Found out today I’ve got bronchitis. Went to my doc during lunch hour. Thought I had a sore throat and that was it. Um..surprise surprise! 10 days worth of antibiotics and got 100 and rising right now

My fiance and I try to go about 3 times a week, and do some cardio and some strength training each time. Usually about 30 minutes on the elliptical, and then we alternate between chest/triceps, abs/legs, and biceps/back each day.
Also, we’re trying out this Couch to 5K program. I absolutely hate running, and usually give up after about 2 minutes or 1 block, whichever comes first. But this program really eases you into it, and if you follow it, you’re supposes to be able to run a 5K after 9 weeks! If you sign up now for a race that’s 9 weeks out, that could be your motivation. For me, I can’t decide if I want to run a 5K at the end of October in Minnesota though. 😀
