08-20-2007, 07:31 AM
Good Morning! A new week full of new opportunities!
I have finished The Firm Super Body Sculpt, 42 min. I still need to work on getting up before 5:45! School starts in one week and I want to be ready!
What's everyone else doing?
08-20-2007, 07:36 AM
wow 5:45 you are early!! I am getting ready to get on my elliptical 35-40 minutes, do some general exercises for 14 minutes and hopefully get my weight lifting out of the way.
08-20-2007, 07:46 AM
was up at half five today a whole fifteen mins before my alarm! went wogging for 3.5 miles... took me a while and my legs ache but tis a good feeling :)
Same again tomorrow!

Well I'm up. I ate breakfast and usually I'd be heading out for the gym now. Unfortunately husband schedule has changed for this week. Now he's going into work so I'm staying home because I don't have childcare. Tonight I plan to go to the gym for a class at 7:30. So for this week I'm not an AM Exerciser. I hope I can stick to plan beautifully because usually that's what keeps me in check ("I just exercised so why would I ruin that?").

same as yesterday but my muscles feel like they're on fire lol. Managed to wake up at half five again so out the door by quarter to six.
May do cross trainer tomorrow... may go wogging.. not sure :^:

I had a love affair with the snooze button this morning. I was up, dressed and stretching by 6:05 and was out the door at 6:15. I walked/jogged my mile route in 15 min. Then I did some push-ups, crunches, reverse crunches and bicycle's for another 10 min. Add in my stretching before and after, and I did a 40 min workout.

Okay so I'm not an AM exerciser this week, but I must post anyway. Hope yall don't mind. Yesterday was VERY difficult for me without getting my exercise done in the AM. I felt lazy and lacked energy. When husband came home I got ready for the gym and I was getting ready I felt so much better. Perhaps I should have gone for a walk in the morning just to get fresh air and my spirits up. I did a 45 minute low impact aerobics class followed by a 15 minute abs class.
Today I'm going out for a bit and plan to do my weight lifting class at the gym.

Running a little late this morning. I tried a new tape today, Super Cardio Sculpt. I did 30 min of a 40 min tape. I didn't like it, no ST. I'll save that tape for a cardio only day. Now I have to lift weights when we get home from the beach. I feel like I wasted my time. ggrrr
After spending 5.5 hours on the beach, I am bushed. No ST for my upper body today..but my lower body got a good workout. Wave resistance and stair-climbing! lol Sand dunes are a great workout for your legs and the sand exfoliated my feet!
08-22-2007, 07:50 AM
Well I came I saw I conquered
After falling asleep at 8pm last night felt exhausted still when I got up. Still... went and did my thing although I walked it this morning instead of running.
Something is better than nothing :)

Good Morning. Today was a cardo day. I am moving slower than I would like to be. My 1.2 mile walk/jog took 20 min. today. Stretched some, before and after.
08-24-2007, 03:18 PM
Well, it all caught up with me. I woke up this morning with sore, swollen legs. *sigh* Don't know if it was the ocean or the standing in line last night for 45 min. to get my son registered on the bus. I woke up on time, but did not exercise.
My plan is to mow my lawn after work. That will take close to an hour. I am not quitting morning exercising, I do enjoy it. I will be back on track Monday morning!
The lawn is done, 30 min. Then I got out the manual edger. The kind with the star shaped contraption on the end. You push is up and down the edge of your sidewalk, to trim the grass. I did that for an hour, and I'm not done yet. I know my back and shoulders got a good workout! Will finish that tomorrow.

For the first time today I got up and worked out BEFORE work! I only went for a 30 min. run/walk and felt a little rushed after that getting ready for work but I wasn't feeling to tired or anything, yay!
I have 3 day weekends and on those days I get up and work out in the morning (around 6:30 or 7:00) but to work out before work I have to get up at 5:00....but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought, maybe I can start doing this regularly and join in more often on your thread!! :D
08-25-2007, 10:09 AM
Up again this morning to work out! I didn't have to work today so I didn't go our for my run until 5:45. I feel great!:D!:D!:D
08-25-2007, 09:21 PM
Thats great Wisher! Still getting up that early even when you don't have to work!
I had class at 10am...and slept until 7:30. *sigh* So I exercised this evening. Tomorrow is full of stuff too. So I am going to set the old alarm for 5:15 and walk/jog before church! See ya in the morning!
08-26-2007, 12:13 AM
Well, it wasn't early, but I did get up, eat breakfast, get dressed and rode my bike uptown! Will try for an early bike ride or walk again tomorrow. I like the idea of morning exercise until that alarm goes off. Cats prefer me to stay in bed and cuddle them, too. :D

been afk for few days but have consistently gotten up each morning (apart from saturday my one day off). Was back home by quarter to seven this morning after my three n a bit mile walk/jog/run
08-26-2007, 01:11 PM
I was up until 1am...not a good thing. I could not get up at 6...so no exercise today. I hate not being able to post 4's on the points challenge!
Tomorrow is a 5:15am day!
08-26-2007, 03:55 PM
This morning I did BodyPump class. Bright and early and loved it.
Yesterday was Body Combat (taebo on speed?) and yoga. BodyCombat was crazy. I had pools of sweat at my feet after that class. Yikes.
08-26-2007, 11:37 PM
Once again- not an early day, but the exercise was right after breakfast! And I managed to get a second walk (more leisurely and for pleasure) in this evening.
Off to bed now so I can get to the gym early (and I do mean early this time) tomorrow.
