Thumbs up I Exercised Today! 10/3 - 10/9

Hello, sports fans! Well, I'm (with gratitude) robbing this wonderful thread idea from elsewhere on the site. It seemed to me that it would be a good idea to have a weekly thread here within our group devoted to exercise check-in; my thought is that it will help us to keep ourselves accountable for getting in some daily exercise, help us to motivate one another, and just plain be interesting since we like each other and are interested in how it's going for one another!

So, if you want to participate, just log in and give a quick post with an update on what you accomplished in the way of daily exercise! Doesn't have to be a big, long-winded explanation -- just the quick and the dirty, unless you have more to say!

Smile I'll start!

Sunday:
Today first thing I did a 2-mile Leslie walk using my Walkblaster ramp(like a stepper but easier on your knees) -- it really works the glutes and hamstrings much more than her normal workouts, which are great for the quads. It was the high-intensity calorie burn DVD (one of three in the set) and I used my 6 lb. hand weights and it was GREAT! I love that ramp!

Later I did the 3-mile WATP and it was fun too, as usual! I had to do some puffs on the inhaler since I'm still not 100%, but I didn't compromise my intensity or let up on the weights or range of movement at all. Great workout.

I also did a half mile outside, according to my pedometer.

Excellent Idea Sarah! The monthly points challenge is a great help but having a thread devoted to daily exercise is just brilliant dahling

As for me, today was a big grocery shop and that's about it I am just getting over a cold and working a 6 day week so it was a lazy day but tomorrow is a different story.. I'll be right here with ya'll!

Hey, all. This is a great idea, Sarah... it always feels good to write it down when you've accomplished your exercise for the day!

Sunday: 10 minutes on stairmaster, 20 on elliptical cross-trainer

Monday: I did intervals on the elliptical cross-trainer this morning for 45 minutes. I alternated between 3 minutes at Level 2 and 3 minutes at Level 8 or 9 (depending on my heart rate), which totally kicked my butt. Very rewarding to see that calorie counter at 660 when I was done (even if they do inflate those things!).

No weights today; I got up too late to do both weights & cardio. I'll do arms tomorrow.

Jen, does the machine ask you to enter your weight and height? If not, it's calculating energy burned by a person of a lower weight, and we know that the heavier you are, the more calories you burn performing an activity......so even with the exaggeration factor, you're still burning a truckload of calories on that thing! At one time, I had located a calorie counter which told calories burned on the elliptical -- I was trying to help out Gen (gatsby,) who uses ellipticals a lot also. She wanted to enter the calories burned per minute by pound into her Diet Power.... I'll see if I can find that info, but if not, I think it's out there (elusive though) so you should do some research.

Today I tried the pilates for dummies. Definitely a great workout. Can't wait to get up early tomorrow morning to do it all over again.

Sarah,

Yep, the ellpitical machine I use definitely asks for a weight. My hubby, who is super tall and big, can burn off 1,000 calories in 45 minutes if he pushes.

I did read somewhere that they do exaggerate, but even if it was only 500 calories, that's not too shabby, either. I'm definitely feeling it in my quads and calves today!

I wasn't able to find the elliptical trainer in DietPower, but I realized that the stationary rowing machine tracks almost exactly to the machine in my gym. I use that instead. I'm the queen of the workaround .

Hooray for exercise. Glad you're able to do even a little, Sarah!

I did a half hour of Gilad's Bodies in Motion on FitTv today. I need to find more ways to get more exercise in.

I did a mile of Leslie watp 2 mile high calorie burn (which is alot for me, LOL) I was worried that i was regressing, so I am thrilled that I got back up to a mile. I even did a little more. I got to the 16:15 mark on the dvd.

I see that alot of people do Pilates here. i thought abot trying that but i watched windsor pilates and there is no way im getting my body to do that! LOL Im still too fat :-P
