Default Yay! I exercised today!

This thread is to help us get focused on movin' and losin'.

We can all post daily and give ourselves a pat on the back and each other some motivation!

I went to the Y this morning. Just did a cardio workout (no weights), but I burned 500 calories.
I'm very proud of myself... the most I've been able to run is 15 minutes, and today I ran for 16. AND I upped the speed for the last minute!

Yes, I will be walking home...BRRRR! But I have a nice long coat with a hood to keep me warm.

I just hope I don't get blown away while crossing the bridge

Cardio kudos to you all!

I have a treadmill in the dark basement but I prefer to walk outside. I figure that it is 1/3 mile from here to the girls' school (on my old pedometer before it broke!) and I am making 8 trips today, otherwise known as 2 and 2/3 miles.

In the New Year I will resolve to lift weights regularly and work on my abdominal muscles, which I have not seen in some years!

Woof! That's GREAT, Lidian!

I'm going to the Y again tomorrow. Today I am going to run around the house like a crazy woman picking up and putting away. And laundry. I've got about 20 loads of laundry to do...

Good going Chickies

I did my usual work walk and then went for an extra 1/2 hour walk at lunch. I have to get some extra walking in before it gets too cold.
