Monday(10/21/13): I went for a walk in my neighborhood this morning with my dog, it was very cold outside. I walked for 30 minutes. Later in the day I ran a mile on my treadmill. My time was 12:14. I love running personally because it really tones my legs and calves.

Tuesday(10/22/13): I started my morning off with 14-minute basic yoga workout video. I felt very relaxed afterwards. I later decided to run for 15 minutes on the white pine trail. It was super cold, but i got warmed up after a few minutes of running. I walked to the white pine trail and back so that was about 23 minutes.

Wednesday(10/23/13): I just went jogging on my treadmill today with walk breaks in between for 30 minutes. I have a cold so my body feels very weak, but i thought it would be good to get some exercise today. 

Thursday(10/24/13): I walked my dog around my neighborhood for 25 minutes today. I also cleaned my room and around my house, for an hour. 

Friday(10/25/13): I went long boarding with my friends for an 1 hour and a half and I also went to the Rockford vs. Kentwood football game with my friends and walked around.
