OK, so no exercise this weekend. There are a couple reasons for this, though. First, my house is a nightmare with all of the wedding gifts...to the point where I can't use my kitchen. No kitchen = poor food choices. Second, having a mess of a house ruins my routines and stresses me out. So I see this as a choice - one weekend with no exercise, where I buckle down, do my spring cleaning, and get my wedding stuff put away, or several weeks of being stressed out and having problems with my routine.

That being said, if you clean for 12 hours, re-organize, assemble furniture, box up old stuff, put away new stuff, etc...its hard work! Being that I've hardly sat down all day, I think I'm good.

Off to scrub the shower, then finish unpacking from the honeymoon and onto washing the kitchen/bathroom floors and neatening the pantry.

Hadn't used my resistance bands in forever so thought I'd break them out and see if they were still challenging. Oh boy were they - got to jazz up some of my old staples with added resistance, and once I got started, I just wanted to keep going. So I went 15 min over my lunch break for a 75 min session. I did the following (4 sets of 15x unless otherwise noted):

Bicep Curls
Lat Pulls
One arm rear flies - 12x per side
Overhead Presses
Squats - 12x
Butt Blasters (12x per side, 3 sets...they were HARD)
Rear Delt Flies
Tricep Extensions - 12x
Leg Raise Crunches w/ band

And without the band...
Lower Ab/Inner Thigh Ball Squeezes
Bicycle Crunches

I walked 4 miles up and down hills carry a backpack.
Then I swam laps for an hour. I was told 36 laps (across and back =1) is a mile.... So I guess I am going to say I did 5 miles today.... I am sooooo sore...

Question: Is swimming good for our tummy muscles too? They feel like they've been worked, so I am wondering if I should skip the crunches today?

Swimming works *all* the muscles. It's great exercise. And of course it works your abs as well.

A very good workout today!

34 mins treadmill (300 cals). I ran MUCH longer than I usually do today and did less walking. I actually managed a 7 minute stint at 6.5! Hooray! (I'm a 2-pack a day smoker, and I usually run out of lung power pretty quickly.)

25 mins legs, abs, lower back (144 cals).

While I was doing the leg press today, one of the trainers (who often helps me out and gives me advice) came up and added 25lb to the machine. I managed to finish all my sets with the extra weight, but, my lord! My legs feel as though they are made of jelly! I think I'm going to have trouble walking later :)

I might still decide to go to the gym today, but I wanted to try something different--riding my new bike! I managed 30 minutes before my dog looked like she was about to collapse into a big, slobbery heap, so I only burned 191 cals (and only half of those 'in zone').

I feel absolutely terrible now though--I got home and my dog's feet are completely torn up and bloody. I am a horrible, horrible dog owner. I thought that bike riding was a form of exercise I could do with her, but I have INJURED her. Now I know, I guess....

Oh no, baffled! Poor puppy, and poor you! I know you'll take great care of her, though, and she'll be fine in no time.

I skipped the gym yesterday, but cleaned out a closet and did a lot of lifting of heavy things.

30 minutes on the elliptical today (first time ever without a break after 15 minutes!) and 30 minutes in the sauna.

30 minutes in the sauna sounds like just the kind of exercise I need today* :) But congrats on the 30 minutes straight! That must feel fantastic!

We've bandaged up my dog's feet and she's sleeping it off a little bit. Poor thing was hobbling around like a broken race horse. I feel really terrible. 3 of her pads are almost completely ripped off. Ouch.

*My Y has a rigid class structure where only people who pay an extra $20 a month to use the special changing rooms get to use the sauna or whirlpool. Meanwhile, I'm at the gym 5 days a week with aching muscles and no way to relieve them... It's tragic, and, I suggest, unjust!

32 mins treadmill (300 cals).

Oh Heart Rate Monitor, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
I actually ran today for 30 straight minutes (lifetime record!) with the help of my HRM and the "Heart Rate Control" setting on the treadmill. It had me running the entire time, and, after the first few minutes, much more slowly than I usually run. I think keeping my heart rate steady at 155 enables me to do more intensive cardio overall than running for a few minutes and getting my HR above 160 and then walking for a few minutes and letting it drop to 140. And plus, I *ran* for 30 straight minutes!!! (Although I did drop to a walk a couple of times so that I could grab a quick slug from my water bottle.) Hooray! My HRM is the coolest toy ever. :)

So, my regular gym time today got interrupted by an unexpected invite to go out to dinner with family. No problem - figured I'd just go on my lunch. Well, lunch rolled around and an emergency meeting got scheduled...fine, but now i wouldn't have time to go all the way out to the gym, so I'd have to make do at the apartment gym...it has a stairclimber, again, no problem. Walk over there, and it is inexplicably locked...someone I guess locked it with a key, but management doesn't HAVE a key, so they are quite confused.

At this point, some inner part of me (we'll call her lazy fat amanda) started making noise like "well, this is a sign". Normally, I would have used today as my a rest day, but I'm donating blood tomorrow and don't always get out there in the morning before my appointment, so I wanted to reserve that for tomorrow if I needed it. So I went -back- to my apartment and did a couple of ondemand videos. Was it the most challenging cardio I've ever done? No. But it was 60 minutes and my heart was pumping, so I'm calling it a victory.

Well, lunch rolled around and an emergency meeting got scheduled...fine, but now i wouldn't have time to go all the way out to the gym, so I'd have to make do at the apartment gym...it has a stairclimber, again, no problem. Walk over there, and it is inexplicably locked...someone I guess locked it with a key, but management doesn't HAVE a key, so they are quite confused.

At this point, some inner part of me (we'll call her lazy fat amanda) started making noise like "well, this is a sign". Normally, I would have used today as my a rest day, but I'm donating blood tomorrow and don't always get out there in the morning before my appointment, so I wanted to reserve that for tomorrow if I needed it. So I went -back- to my apartment and did a couple of ondemand videos. Was it the most challenging cardio I've ever done? No. But it was 60 minutes and my heart was pumping, so I'm calling it a victory.

45 minutes - Yourself! Fitness Cardio Workout
30 minutes - Strength Training

32 mins treadmill (300 cals).

Oh Heart Rate Monitor, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
I actually ran today for 30 straight minutes (lifetime record!) with the help of my HRM and the "Heart Rate Control" setting on the treadmill. It had me running the entire time, and, after the first few minutes, much more slowly than I usually run. I think keeping my heart rate steady at 155 enables me to do more intensive cardio overall than running for a few minutes and getting my HR above 160 and then walking for a few minutes and letting it drop to 140. And plus, I *ran* for 30 straight minutes!!! (Although I did drop to a walk a couple of times so that I could grab a quick slug from my water bottle.) Hooray! My HRM is the coolest toy ever. :)

Wow, that's great! Was thinking of getting a heart rate monitor.

I love mine. I originally got it because I like to measure my cardio by calories burned--I find that to be motivating. But I really love the fact that I have concrete evidence of my increasing fitness every time I get onto the treadmill. I can see that it takes me longer to get to my target zone, and I can see how much more quickly I recover from high-intensity exertion. I literally see an improvement in my fitness every single week. Love it! It was a great reward for reaching goal.

Grrr.

Only 40 min UB strength today, because I was supposed to donate blood. But then I got deferred for spending less than 6 hours in a city that I ASKED THEM ABOUT before I left for my honeymoon and they said would be fine. Then I called AGAIN and double checked when I got back so I wouldn't waste my time going in for an appointment if I was going to be deferred...nope, still fine. So I take my lunch hour, get my finger pricked, waste half an hour of my time (it could have been cardio!) only to be told that I am deferred from donating for a YEAR because of -one- stop on my cruise that I pre-cleared with them.

Well, if I was ever going to get a tattoo, this would be the time, as I'd always considered it but didn't do it because of the 1 year donation deferral.

I repeat, grrr. May have to take an extended lunch and do some form of cardio just to burn off the frustration.

Argh! Stymied!

Gym is closed today so I decided to take my new (used) bike on a 7 mile ride around the wheatfields. Alas, I got there and discovered that my bike has a flat tire and I had no clue how to fill it up with air. (No pump). So I'm back home now (and my bf tells me I could have taken the bike to a gas station to fill it with air...Duh!) with zero exercise to report.

I'm due a day off, but still...

Fishing yesterday. I do not know a better tricep exercise than all day fishing. I even switched my casting arm so both arms would get a workout. Not to mention the up the hill, down the hill, up the hill from the site where we were set up.
