Hi Gang! And welcome to anyone who wants to post here. The purpose of this post is to list all your activity you do during the day, cheer on others and gain motivation to move!
I am donating blood this afternoon, so I got up early to get in a 3 mile WATP and will be doing my strength training after I get orders packed this morning.
I didn't want to use the blood donation as an excuse not to workout! I had to laugh, DH was still in bed after I got done and instead of Good morning, he said "You are so damned dedicated".
I will be having some Lorna Doones at the snack table after the donation, though ;)

Got my bowflex in today as well, before the blood donation! Now I don't know what to do with myself, LOL.
Oooh- the Bowflex. I bet you'll lovelovelove it. I wish I had room for one, but the usually passive hubster would kill me. I have exercise stuff all over the house. Don't tell me it folds up small and tidily if you want me to live!
Normal evening routines in one evening... bike and walking the dog both with hills thrown in for good measure, HRM estimates 1110 calories.
I had to walk past of bars, mariachi bands and margaritas :( I so very badly wanted a salty margarita on the rocks. Ah well.

Lori - I would agree with your hubby! hehe. Nice job!
FB - I wanted margarita too! I like the frozen ones though!!
I did the usual.... http://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/dog.gif (http://www.millan.net) walked the dog with my bf. It wasn't the 1.5 miles this time. My doggie is still sore and we had to take it easy for him.
I got in a 2.5 mile walk tonight. Hope to get in 3 tomorrow.

I did my Tae Bo, ordered a new one "Cardio Circuit" had to stop a bit in it, but it was fun to do. Will try to do Jari Love, but am a bit busy tonight.

FB - that is some serious calorie burning you are doing! I do love the bowflex. It doesn't really fold up small, but the bench can be raised up so it can be pushed into a corner if need be. We have it in our spare bedroom - where I use it.
Today I did my upper body bowflex workout. Then c25K Week 5 Day 3. I jogged for 20 minutes straight!!!!! :woohoo: I went about 1 3/8 miles, so that is around a 16-17 minute mile. Not too shabby. I really now think I will be able to do the whole 5K!

I did the elliptical today for 20 mins. It was hard getting back into it again. I stopped for awhile...but I'm BACK! I will probably http://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/dog.gif (http://www.millan.net) later!

Good job all :carrot::carrot:
Got in Jillian frontside last night -- that one burns and I'm still doing beginners!
Getting ready to do Jillian backside -- that one for some reason is not so hard for me.

I have a pilates dvd and a cardio dvd that I alternate with an hour of jogging.
By the way, I realized in my jog today that hills must be great for your butt! lol lucky me.

I'm working on baby steps... Last night I got in a half hour brisk walk, today I stopped taking the elevator at work and huffed two flights of stairs whenever I had to get up or down and took a brisk 45 minute walk with stairs through the outside of my complex tonight. Oh and lets not forget all the extra trips to the bathroom now that I'm drinking enormous amounts of H2O:carrot:

I've been busy exercising...and not much time for the computer lately so I haven't checked in. I've been walking 2-3 miles each night so far this week. Last night I did 3 miles with our Tuesday walking club for our Parks and Recreation Dept. It was a lot of fun. I'm down another pound this week for a 5 pound total loss in the last 3 weeks.
Have a good day~

You guys are doing great! Yesterday I woke up with fever and body aches and was really weak. I am much better today and managed a 30 minute walk.

Hi all! Keep up the good work!
Today I did a 20 minute walk, then we biked to dinner tonight. About 5 miles each way.
I had a bad day yesterday, spent the evening in the children's E.R. because my son refractured his arm. The cast was just taken off 2 weeks ago. So, no exercise last night- besides pacing.
Bad day today too. Regardless of the heavy rain I walked and walked- it suited my mood perfectly to walk in a downpour. I rewalked a killer hill 3 times just to get my HR up. HRM claims 947 calories and I feel 947% better- just wet :) . A more productive pity party than my ones in the past with Lindt truffles!
05-07-2008, 09:19 PM
Great work everyone!!!
Sorry to hear about your bad day, FB. Hope your son feels better soon! Glad you hit the pavement instead of the truffles!!
Tonight will be my usual. Walking the dog. He is still sore from his neuter so it will be a short walk.

Did a walk jog this morning for 30 mins. Monday, Wednesday and Fridays are my day at the gym. Need to shake things up to get the weight off..... I tried to download the C25K podcast but no such luck.....something about an extension?
05-08-2008, 08:10 AM
Kim - where were you downloading the pod cast? Did you try ullreys.com? That's where I get mine.
Had the hubby drop the crazy dog and myself off at the college nearby. We walked home on the bike trails... which was very lovely. No one about, walks through fields and we saw a giant deer. I was scared the deer would attack us (I'm ignorant about nature and wildlife :) ) so we ran a good distance to escape the evil deer. HRM says (I always feel like a gameshow host typing that) 713 calories!
Do deers bite? lol
Thanks Gurly! I feel lots better. I hope your pup does too!

Well...I did the elliptical for a short time today because my iPod DIED on me!! I was so upset. I CAN'T workout without my iPod. I thought I charged it.... but apparently not! :crazy:
I also went for a short walk with the pup. He is feeling much better, FB. Thanks! I played Wii sports for a while too. I am not so sure it counts as exercise but Chellez in TBL forum says it does! ;)
05-09-2008, 07:56 AM
Kara - I think Wii can count as exercise if it is consistently keeping your heart rate up.
Yesterday I did a new bowflex lower body workout out. Then C25K Week 6 Day 1. A bit easier than day 3 of last week, since the first day is broken into 3 runs again.
05-11-2008, 09:28 AM
Yesterday we did a lot of bike riding. Probably close to 18 miles all together. Phew!
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
Happy Mom's Day!
Yowza Lori! Don't you love a good bike ride?
I took a new bike out for a spin- understatement...
Appx. 13 miles against 25-35 mph winds. 1355 calories! I thought I would collapse, felt great to get home. Walked a ton yesterday on a yard sale circuit. Good weekend.
Hope everyone is fabulous!
16.5 mile bike ride and a shorty dog walk, much nicer weather today. G'nite!
