February 28, day 1818.
Donated $25.
Classic warm up.
Cardio Punch, level 3, EC of thirty seconds rest between sets. Was able to do actual jumping without kneecap pain so long as I didn't move my feet too far apart.
Captain workout, done at cardio intensity rather than HIIT, level 1, thirty seconds rest between sets.
Total time spent post-warmup at cardio intensity level, a little over twenty minutes. Edit: day 109 flossing.

March 4. Day 1823. Classic warm up.
Modded Cardio Punch workout: step jacks, step seals, and step Ts. 12 reps per set instead of 10. 24 punches each time punches happened, instead of 10. Did this at level 3 with 15 seconds rest between sets so whatever the modding counts for I'm pretty sure it's EC.
Started on modded Epic Arms but saw my timer so I basically just did alternating sets of 10 standing bicep curls (15 lbs per arm) and 20 punches until I hit the 20 minute total post-warm-up mark.
Will edit later for flossing. Edit: day 114 flossing.

March 6. Day 1825. Five wall pushups, done very gingerly because my left shoulder/trapezius muscle has been giving me a weird amount of pain all day. 7 minutes/0.9 miles on a bike at lunch. Would've been more but I had to use an ebike on the return trip and I don't count ebike time as exercise. Will edit later for flossing. EDIT: day 116 flossing.

Thank you both. It feels slightly better today, but still hurts, so I just went with Stopgap.

March 7, day 1826. Classic warm-up and Stopgap workout, level 1, with EC. My shoulder started protesting over the course of the third set so I stopped there. This was about six minutes of post-warm-up working out. I hope to get more in later, if I am careful.

Will edit later for flossing.

EDIT: Day 117 flossing. Also, I went to the workout books section of the site and paid $10, then downloaded the PDFs of four of the paperbacks.

March 8. Day 1827. Kind of overwhelmed with a number of issues, including what are either perimenopausal or pre-period mood swings, so the best I could manage was fifty wall pushups over the course of the day (five for eaxh time I had an emotional issue get the bwtter of me, so at least something good would come of it). Day 118 flossing. Have found a compostable floss that is actually strong enough to deal with the narrow gaps between my teeth and not break until the very end.

March 9. Day 1828. Five floor pushups. Classic warm up. Arm Shred workout. Used 10 lb dumbbells, 30 seconds rest between exercises, still came out to about 15:15 total post-warmup work. Day 119 flossing. Will edit later for any further pushups and/or bicycling.

March 10. Day 1829. Ten floor pushups. 200 punches and 100 overhead punches. Day 120 flossing.
March 11. Day 1830. Got started on classic warm-up, had to leave off halfway through because I'm WFH today and my cat started making the Sad Sad Kitty Wants Attention noises. I will update later when I have at least done some other exercise. Day 121 flossing. Edit: 100 punches before bed. Le sigh.

March 13. Day 1832. Opted to go outside at lunch, will do upper body or full body tomorrow; had muscle stiffness/soreness in legs esp. hamstrings so light bicycle riding seemed like a good way to ease things a bit. 7 minutes/0.93 miles and 8 minutes/also 0.93 miles on the bike. Worth noting, the ride back included two bags' worth of acquired groceries and featured me having to shove a box of crackers down my jacket for transportation after one of the two bags ripped in half.

Will edit later for flossing. EDIT: Day 123 consecutive flossing.

Dumbbell hip thrusts, 4 sets 8, 17 lbs. Most assuredly raise the weight.

March 21, day 1841.
Start with day 131 flossing.

Classic warm up
Cardio punch but 16 of everything rather than 10. Did 3 sets with junping, kneecap began to hurt. Remaining 4 sets were step-jacks, step seals, etc. 30 seconds rest between sets.
Started in on Storm Princess. Got through round 1, got to last arm circle set, the anterior deltoids and/or upper pecs (not sure which) rwfused to cooperate further. At this point I had reached 17+ minutes of cardio activity. Opted to stop there.

Back to weights tomorrow. I have a Sukhi's veggie naanwich calling my name from the freezer.
