hey gang :wave:

I just did 2 miles. I used the Walk Away Your Stress that she has playing on her walk club page for September. I had when I miss a week of walking bec it seems soooooo hard after missing a week. It'll be better in a few days tho.

how's everybody doing this lovely weekend?

hope it's a great one!
hugs,

No WATP this weekend. We spent over 7 hours Saturday sitting at my daughter's volleyball tournament. I'm sure I burned off SOMETHING with the adrenalin while they battled it out in some very close matches! In the end, they lost in the semi-finals.

Spent yesterday afternoon shopping for a homecoming dress with my daughter. Didn't find one. After supper, hubby invited me for a walk, which we hadn't done in quite a while. We went over 1.5 miles, but not sure exactly how far. Will try to get back to more formal fitness this afternoon.

I'm resurfacing from my Summer of hiding. I got up and did the 4 Big Miles today. I've been doing 1 & 2 milers. This really took it out of me! Wow!

hey gang :wave:
I feel like i need to check in. Sunday I pulled something in my back and yesterday I could barely stand up and sit down. I babied it all day yesterday and that night it was starting to ease up. I set my alarm for 5 this morning hoping that I could just walk - no knee lifts or kicks backs - just walk for 2 miles, bec I really think that walking helps lower back pain - even tho I think this is more of a pull than a "pain", but I was having trouble even getting my socks and shoes on this morning. By the time I got them on, I could barely walk LOL soooooooooo I did not get in my exercise this morning. I am feeling better this afternoon so maybe by tomorrow morning I'll be able to walk. It seems like there is always a little snag in the road here lately, but I'm not gonna let it keep me off course. :spin:

I hope everybody has a great :running: day!

I got my 5 Day Slim Down yesterday, too! Couldn't fit it in last night, but I didn't have much trouble getting up this morning to do it! I chose the warm-up and mile 1 (all I had time for). Looks like it will be another good one!

good morning gang :wave:

cbmare - I meant to tell you yesterday that we're really glad to see you again! we've been missing you!!!

my back is better this morning. not what it should be but still good enough to push myself to walk.

I walked 2 miles. I used the new 5 Day Slim Down and did the Warm Up, Classic Walk and Sculpt Your Arms miles, which are the first 2 miles on the dvd. I also watched Leslie make a bunch of yummy looking breakfasts LOL

Michele - how early do you have to get up in order to walk in the morning?

PurdueGirl - how's your walking going?

hope everybody has a great :running: day!
hugs,
Cathy

Cathy: If I'm up by 6, I can get 2 miles done before I need to shower for work (unless I have an early meeting or the kids need to be at school early). Maybe this new workout will re-motivate me to GET UP! That's been my problem lately.

Thanks, Cathy.

I dragged myself up this morning and did the WAT Stress video.

I have to keep telling myself what I did last year - "It's all for ME!" "It's all for ME!" "It's all for ME!"

hey gang

I did 3 miles this morning. :cheer: I used the new 5 Day Slim Down dvd and did the Warm Up, Classic Walk, Trim Your Tummy and Speed Walk. that was 3 miles in 40 minutes....well plus the 5 minutes to warm up...so that was still 45 minutes.

what's everybody else doing today? we are watching IKE big time. We will probably be on the right side of it and everybody is in full panic mood this morning. I'm praying we don't hit hard by it.

hope everybody has a great day!
hugs,
cathy

Did the entire 5 Day Slim Down this morning! I got so sweaty, my HRM wasn't connecting properly with my skin, so the reading is rather low. I KNOW I burned more than 300 calories!

Hope everyone in Ike's path is OK!

Michele - that's awesome that you did all 5 miles! i wish i could say the same.

PurdueGirl - that's awesome that you're walking 6 days a week!

Hurricane Ike hit down here. We were fine but my mom had 2 feet of water in her house. Between taking care of my mom's health problems and now her house problems - I am more than overwhelmed - but oh well. right now my exercise is getting everything out of wet house. I'd much rather be walking. mayb life will get back to normal soon.

hugs,
cathy

So sorry to hear about your mom's house, cathy! Hope things are improving! Glad you found time for yourself!

Yesterday I did a total of 103 minutes on my Wii!! Today I did the 5 Day Slim Down again! I haven't made time during the week for even 1 mile of it, but this is the second Sunday I've done the WHOLE thing! It really gets you sweating! And now that I've got a new battery in my HRM, I know that it burns about 500 calories, too!

WOW michele CONGRATS on doing all 5 miles. where does your HRM fit on you? i noticed Leslise has a ring HRM that she wears on the new Heart Healthy Walk.

I did 2 miles this morning. I used the 5 Day Slim Down. Did the first Classic Mile and the Speed Walk

later gaters :wave:

I have a traditional HRM with a strap that goes around my chest. A ring one intrigues me, though.

Don't you just LOVE the new 5 Day Slim Down?!?!

cathyxxx
09-24-2008, 09:50 AM
YES MAM! I love all her stuff!!!! i'm thinking a ring HRM wouldn't be as bothersome as something with a strap but hey, i know my heart rate is up there even without one ;)

I just checked on amazon and they are $30. might make a nice little christmas present if i decide i want one. It's a clock, stopwatch and hrm.

this morning I did 2 miles. I used the Walking Down your Blood Sugar dvd.

I did 2 miles this morning. I used the new Heart Healthy Walk.

I just started using Leslie's DVDs and I love them! I did the 3 mile Walk Away your Waistline today. I'm considering getting the Walk Slim System off of her website... but shipping costs almost as much as the DVDs do!

good morning gang :wave:

Hey Zeta - nice to meet you! I love all of Leslie's stuff. You are right tho, the shipping costs on her website are kind of high. You might check out the prices at amazon and collagevideos and even on QVC. I like ordering from amazon bec you get free shipping if you spend $25.

did you use the walk belt with that dvd or did you do it without it? I like that one! and the 3 mile Weight Loss Walk too. heck I love all her stuff ;)

Michele or anybody else - have y'all noticed Leslie's new one that's coming out soon called "Walk Away your Hips and Thighs kit" with fit cuff. It's a 2 mile walk and then 21 minutes of lower body toning too.

hope everybody has a great :running: day!
hugs,
cathy

I did 3 miles this evening using the Walk Away Your Waistline - without the belt. I used the belt yesterday and figured I could take a break from it today. I got my flu shot this morning and now my arm is kind of sore. I hope it goes back to normal tomorrow!
