5 miles walked yesterday and 4.5 walked today. Good start to the month, but it's the weekend, so much easier to find the time to exercise obviously.

The plan for tomorrow is to get to the gym - for the first time in about 5 weeks :o - and do an hours' weights.

You ladies are putting me to shame, lol! Have exercised for the first time today in God knows how long! Only managed 10 minutes on the treadmill and 5 minutes skipping before I practically collapsed (am planning on doing 15 minutes again tonight). But hey, gotta start somewhere I suppose!

Hi All! I just started working out again, this will be my third week! Yea! Once I get back in my routine I can't stop :)

Got up and did 1.2 miles on the elliptical this morning and weights for 15 minutes too! I will try and get out to walk 1.6 miles at the park later. Shooting for at least 2 miles a day right now.

Keep at it everyone!

Angie and I did the short route to STARBUCKS this morning with the dogs, 1.25 miles, then the long way home of 2.25 miles. Thuis afternoon I did 2.5 miles on the treadmill for a total of 6 miles today!

Good Luck tomorrow ladies! Gary

Well, I made it to the gym, and did about 45 minutes weights. Not quite the hour that I wanted, but a heck of a lot better than nothing. And an hours' walking, so not a bad day.

Gym tomorrow - cardio this time...

I have been unwinding from our vacation. Unpacking, getting the kids ready for school. I've missed two days of exercise. Today is another busy day but I'm hoping to fit in one last day at the pool with the kids before it closes. I worked so hard while on vacation and didn't take much time off from working out. I feel I deserve this little break.

09-03-2007, 10:07 AM
ONESTEP...you can do it! It may not sound like much but for starting out, you did good! And, every little bit counts!

GARY...good job on the 6 miles!

Looks like everyone is doing a great job. Keep up the good work! :woohoo:

Saturday...3 miles...skipped the WATP, wasn't feeling so great.
Sunday...free day
Today...3 miles and as soon as I get off here, my 2 mile WATP.

I've been adding one minute each day to my elliptical, but today I just kept going and got myself to 29 minutes. I'm at 1.3 miles now :) I will keep pushing myself to add at least one minute per day. My goal is to be able to do 45 mins to an hour each day. (That means I'll have to start getting up even earlier! AND that is the HARD part!!)

Everyone else seems to be starting the month off good... keep it up!!! :)

Hi everyone. I went to the gym today and did a 10 minute warm up on the recumbent bike. That equaled 3 1/2 miles. I then did the strength training..16 reps on each machine and then I did 35 minutes on the treadmill. Tomorrow is only cardio.

3 mile run/walk combo, mostly walking. Didn't want to push it too much after getting hurt. Might do some more later on, but I have a church picnic this afternoon - so if I make it out of there w/o eating a million calories plus running around with my kids I might just call it a day.

Yesterday I did a quick 20k on my bike took me less than an hour... it wasn't windy at all...

I mowed the front yard today. Trying to take it easy because the shins hurt. But it's back to busting the booty tomorrw. I'll also mow the back yard which is huge and we really shd have a rider, but it's push mower all the way baby! I am at that point of feeling guilty when I miss days...What's up with that?

2 1/2 miles walking. I was supposed to go to the gym, but snow's predicted for this evening, and I didn't want to get caught in it when I went to go home. And looking outside, it's started to fall.

Why does winter always have to have this last hurrah kind of thing...

Got my usual 3 miles around the neighborhood this morning...kind of dragging after yesterday but I am awake now and ready for round two! Mowing the backyard at 8'ish...don't want to go out there too early even though most have gone off to work. I may walk a mile on the treadmill later as well.

Did my 2 mile walk today. I swear, I walk on a paved road with 2 lanes, always walk on the side facing traffic. It's in a neighborhood for Christ's sake!
2 LANES!
Anyways, some *** HOLE decides to come very close to me. I mean, I could have reached out and touched the hood of his truck easily. Well this startled me so much that I lost my footing and took a nice tumble on my knee. It's all kind of scratched up and bruised and swollen, and wouldn't you know, the dweeb just kept right on going, offered me no assistance what so ever! Grrrrrr... I also noticed a police sticker on the back winshild...figures...good for nothing cops.... I am so irritated now.
The lady whose house I bit it in front of came out and gave me some papaer towels and offered me a ride home, bless her heart, but I just cleaned it up best I could and continued my walk through the pain. I figured if Football players can do it, so can I. Is this what they mean by blood, sweat and tears? LOL!:dizzy:

diva - sorry about your fall..i have the same thing...walk in a neighborhood that doesn't have sidewalks...and twice tonight there were near misses. ice your ankle tonight and take an anti-inflammatory...you probably strained it. Hang in there
as for me...got somewhat motivated. Another long crazy day at work. I went for a walk and was planning 45 min (about 3 miles) but poor doggie was tired tonight and started pooping out at the 20 min mark...so i made it back home in 30 min. I really am still tired even after my walk...so i think these last two days ahve physically wore me out...so i won't do my power yoga tonight. I'll try for it tomorrow. And besides...this sunday...got a long hike planned at Amicoloca falls just up the road.

Hey guys,

A 15 mile bike ride isn't as much as it seems. It took an hour and was only moderately intensive. The darn hills are the only real difficulty. :)

Today: 10 min run to warm up (100)
45 FBWO (350).

I took my run to the streets for the first time today! I was planning to go to the gym, run on the treadmill and then come home and take my dog out for a walk. And suddenly that just seemed stupid. So I mapped out a 3.25 mile run and just DID it! Hooray!

Actually, it was more like run/walk, but running outside is so completely different from running on a treadmill that I forgive myself. My HR was higher than on the treadmill and I went a little slower overall (despite the fact that the dog always wants to go faster). BUT, I burned more calories: 350 as compared to my usual 300.

So, hooray!

After my tumble last week I did a WATP's work out and haven't done a thing since. I got some sort of head-cold and felt like poo. Anywho, feeling better today and the cooler temp's have me pumped! Still tramatized from the A-hole who made me fall so I haven't gotten back to walking outside, but I did do the 2 mile WATP's today and jogged in place when she was marching and after that I did TBL Strength training work out.

Welcome back Diva! I'll have to look back to see exactly what happened. Glad you're doing better! Just take it easy.

I'm back too. :) I took my rest week and extended it a couple of days (cough). I started back up yesterday with 60 min. of Kathy Smith's Fat Burning Workout, walked a mile. Today I did 50 min. of Turbo Jam's Punch Kick and Jam and will walk another mile, pushing the stroller (as usual). I walk to my son's school to pick him up every day. It's a mile round trip.

I QUIT smoking with my dh last week (the first day of school) and have been free from the nicotine gum...today is day 5. I am a mess!! LOL This just sucks but I know it will pass. I want to eat everything but have been chewing gum instead and drinking water. I'm in control (for the most part)! :D Really, I'm doing really well. I have such determination!

I'm hoping I don't gain weight. If I continue to exercise and eat well, I won't gain, right???? I'm hoping to lose more but I'm not sure what my body has in store for me.

It's good to be back.

Feelinggroovy, it's great to have ya back gf! I was doing my normal 2 mile walk in the hilly neighborhood last Thurs, listening to my music on the other side of the road facing oncomming traffic when some azz hole got very close to me in his truck from behind. I could have reached out and touched his truck. I got so startled that I twisted my ankle, lost my footing and ate the pavement with me knee. It was all skinned up and swollen, and the jerk just kept right in going....grrrr... and THAT wans't even the dangerous stretch I have to walk on!

i was a bad girl yesterday..no exercise. And no yoga for 2 days. I think the yoga has really been helping my heel spur. It didn't bother me all week..however this am, since not doing yoga for 2 days, i could barely walk down the steps this morning it hurt so bad. I know stretching really helps heel spurs and yoga really gives the whole body a stretch...so i really need to do yoga everyday. I haven't needed to take a tylenol when i'm doing yoga..but i needed one badly this am just to walk. Ugghh i'm paying for slacking off for 2 days. I will get yoga and walk sometime today.

15 mile bike ride with bf this morning, 550 calories.

It was the same ride as last weekend except that today it took 20 minutes longer and was horrible, horrible, horrible. There was a *hellish* headwind and climbing up hills into a really strong wind was NOT fun. I could have walked faster up those bloody hills. And despite going so darn slowly, my legs are KILLING me, which has never happened after a ride before.

Blech. Next weekend had best be much nicer!

09-16-2007, 06:33 PM
baffled...how long does in normally take to do 15m? just curious since i don't have a speedometer/milage thing on my new bike. I biked 50 min today and want to get an idea...however, i didn't have a headwind...that must suck. I discovered today however, i'm totally out of shape when it comes to biking. I can hike forever, but i was exhausted with 50min. good for you on 15 miles.

i added more to my exercise today. I did 2 hrs of yard work. 1.15 hr cutting the lawn (and i was sweating a ton). and then i did some raking. So i know i burned more calories. DH and i also spent an hour rearranging furniture and moving a few pieces up stairs and a few downstairs...so i got my weightlifting in for the night LOL

if my legs hold up...after dinner i'll walk the dog.

baffled111
09-16-2007, 07:38 PM
Gatorgal: today the 15 miles took 1 hour 20 minutes, last week it took an hour.

You can go to mapmyride.com and put in your route to find out the distance. It's quite handy. Other people have saved their bike routes so that you can find new rides to do, and you can map your own ride out in advance. It's neat.

09-19-2007, 05:50 PM
Gary, I forgot to express concern for your injured 'personal trainer'. Is she feeling better?

My dog was strangely lethargic during our run today. She's usually got plenty of energy and gets frustrated with me for not going fast enough (when we're walking). After about a mile and a half of our run today, she kept suggesting that we ditch the run and just go home. It's a bit strange. I've been taking her on bike rides some mornings to tire her out quickly before we go off to work and she gets crated for the day. The bike rides are pretty short-- less than 10 minutes--but she runs like a champ the whole time. I'm wondering whether she hurt her leg or something during yesterday's ride, but she's not limping...

Dogs! If only they'd learn to talk!

GatorgalstuckinGA

09-19-2007, 10:53 PM
Thanks BAFFLED and GATORGAL for your concerns for Reba.

Briefly, a couple of years ago she hurt herself, by trying to jump into my truck, before I gave the command. She was on a short lease and hit her leg hard against the truck. I guess she was getting pressure on her spine in an area that was shutting down memory to her hind leg. She walked like it was just flopping in the breeze. Long story short and $1,500 later...well over 2 grand now...ouch!....she will have issues with it. We think it is from too much walking. We try to get them out for at least 2 miles each day, I have been taking them 3.5 most days now for a while.

Anyway, she was really slipping on it last night and this morning, still couldn't jump. I had her checked out, our vet said he found nothing wrong in the exam, I was there. He said we could give her inflammatory drugs and wait and see because she checked out fine. He said the only other way would be to x-ray but that wouldn't show tendon or soft tissue damage. I wanted to know if she had some of the other things such as arthritis he said the x-rays would show, so I had her sedated and x-rayed. She shows nothing wrong...which is good. He said for now take it easy and shorten the walks. He has given her an inflammatory drug.

Gator would know all this stuff! ENJOY your hike!

BAFFLED ~ So sorry for your dog! I hope that she is just tired!

Thanks again ladies for your concern :hug:

I've been doing abs 5x per week and UB lifting 2x per week, though no UB for the past week because my surgery was Thursday and I wasn't moving around so well (I was also using crutches, and was sort of afraid of making myself really sore with UB lifting, and then not being able to get around the house on the crutches due to muscle fatigue...my arms were already sore from crutching around).

Hi all! Everyone is really doing GREAT!

I didn't get much "exercise" in at the end of last week because we were painting in the house! :)

I got back at it yesterday morning with 2.5 elliptical miles and up early this morning before work... another 2.5 elliptical miles. It is supposed to be 95 degrees out today :( don't think I will be walking on my lunch hour!

Have a great day all!!! :)

I stayed Saturday night in a hotel, so on Sunday morning I found myself in a hotel fitness room. Lifted extra-super-heavy on arms (they didn't have my usual freeweights - just 2.5 lb heavier and 2.5 lb lighter, so I just lifted heavy).

It was HARD.

Yesterday I did 60 minutes of Jam class, which was super hard this time I actually sweated up a storm.

Tonight I am doing a 60 minute Combat class which is kick boxing, karate etc. cardio style. Can't wait.....the days seem so long before I get to the gym and work out my frustrations.

Good morning peeps! I can't believe it's almost a new month already!!! Good lord, it'll be Christmas :tree: before we know!

Anywho, I did about 50 minutes of :dancer: DWTS cardio on Monday. I felt like the football team beat the crap out of me yesterday and was running a fever so i slept most of the day and had VERY strange dreams...

Today I am going to force myself to do TBL workout...if that actually happens, i'll come back and post it. I wish I had Amanda's drive for exercise. I'd be a size 2 if I did, lol! :drill:

Today I did about 20 minutes of TBL cardio until I got irritated, and then I popped in WATP and did 2 miles with Leslie. I don't like the cardio portion of TBL. It didn't seem to flow for me and I was barely working up a sweat. :(

Short day at work so I was able to get 3 miles with the dogs then 3.25 treadmill...also burned a few calories mowing the front and back yards. Even burned some more earlier this evening slicing polska kielbasa into 600 sandwich size pieces for rolls, with Angie and my ex-wife, for the Viking Festival this week-end.
