Support Groups - ~~The Thin Group Exercise Thread~~

Hi Everyone,
I thought I would start this exercise thread as I had planned to.

This will really help us in our weight loss program because exercise goes hand in hand with our program. The more and better we exercise the more we stay on our program. I for one am not going to do all this hard work and than turn around and eat something to counteract what I just did. I tend to stick to my program better and eat healthy when I exercise.

So come on guys what are you waiting for? Post with us and let us know how you are doing with your exercise program.

I have went back to the gym and went today and had a great workout on the treadmill, using the hand weights for weight training and the other various machines too. I will go on my treadmill down the basement tomorrow also.

Come on guys post with me and tell us what you are doing for exercise.

Take care Sassy Sharon

Hey Sandy,
Glad to have you posting too. Glad for the company. My gosh 55 crunches-ouch! That is fantastic.If you were in a bad mood think what you must do when you are in a good mood. LOL That is good too that you did your treadmill for half a mile. I always say that any exercise is much better than just sitting on the couch vegging. So kudo's to you Sandy.

Sassy Sharon :cool:

Worked out for 1 hour...
Treadmill - 40 minutes...probably about 2.8 miles.

Did a ton of crunches, sit-ups, and the pole doing the waist thing (don't know what in the world you call it! LOL) And about 30 thingys with the feet going into a box motion (it's good for the stomach muscles)...didn't do any weights today...tryt and do that every other day... That is it for today!

I'm right here guys. I was all ready to exercise today but got stuck working 12 hours at H & R Block cause this one girl didn't show up so even though I was all set to exercise and had my bag in the car with me clothes in it. No could do!

I don't know if I can go tomorrow either. But will try to at least do our treadmill down our basement for a bit and maybe some hand weights.

Everyone is doing great.

Chrissy-Glad you joined us sister in law. You are really going to town on this exercise arn't you. See I told you that it really relieves our stuff.

Kelster-Hey Kel, Welcome aboard too. You are really working out as well. It sure does feel great when you are done, I agree completely.

Zoe-Wha whoo! Way to go too. You are no sissy from what I can tell.

Hey guys, we just do what we can do and do the best we can do. As long as we keep moving that is the ticket to our new and healthy body.

Take care, love ya Sassy Sharon :cool:

Hey guys where the heck is everyone? I haven't been able to exercise much these last few days, just been working working and more working at H & R Block. I worked 12 hours yesterday as we are in our peak and we are busy busy busy. Don't know if I can get any exercise in at the gym cause I am working tomorrow-Friday and Saturday all day than on Sunday leave for Michigan and for the trial. Will do my best but in the meantime I hope that you guys keep this thread going strong. OK? When I get back next week and the trial is settled than I promise I will get right back to where I was before 100% so Sandy, Kelster, Zoe, and Chrissy (I'll see you so maybe I can borrow your Nordic Track or whatever that is down the basement you have). Hope we have time to work out during this trial, but if not than we will just do our very best and that is all we can do.

Keep on posting guys, let us know how you have exercised.

Take care guys, love ya Sharon :cool:

i'm worried that i won't be in shape for track, i'm fresh out of swim season, but i am worried because i haven't run since the beginning of cross country season (had to drop out due to injury) which is in the fall. anyway, the following was my workout for today:
50 minutes on the treadmill 31 of which i was running, 15 of which i was running an average of 8.5 minute miles (that killed me! i should be going faster for track!)
2 or 3 hours of lifting: did 5 pushups on my feet where you pause for a while at the bottom (just yesterday i couldn't do 3! i'm progressing day to day!) did probably about 200 crunches, 100 with my mom, 100 with my friend.
hoping track won't kill me!

simply, breathing

Hey guys,
Well I am finally back on track after a gain from when I went that week to Michigan for my brothers trial-or shall I say mistrial.

Anyways I went and worked out yesterday after work at the gym and hopefully will get back 100% to where I was before.

Zoe-Wow 60 crunches-ouch! You are doing good with your program. It will pay off in the end for both of us.

breathing-Glad you could join us. Post with us again. So I see by your profile that you are a student, are you in college or high school? You sure do have quite a workout with all of your running.

Also feel free to post with our regular Thin Group thread. The more the merrier we always say. Great bunch over there to help motivate you.

Talk to you later guys, lets all get ready for spring now! Pretty soon we will be uncovering and I want to look good in my shorts and anything else I put on.

Sassy Sharon :cool:

Hey where is everyone lately? I see that we have a new server. I am so glad we are back up and around.

I have gotten pretty much back on track with my exercise program. Have went either to the gym or downstairs with the treadmill or weights.

I went to my WW class and have finally gotten all of the 6 lbs back off that I put on while in Michigan. Last week lost 4.8 lbs and the other 1.2 lbs today. HIP HIP HOORAY!

Will keep on trying this week too.

Come on and post with me guys. I miss you's. Chrissy, Zoe, thenewme or breathing or anyone else who has been exercising lately.

Take care and hope to have some company soon.

Sassy Sharon :cool:

03-10-2001, 07:29 PM
Ok I'm gonna try and get in here every day. My goal is to get some form of exercise in everyday. I love my exercise bike so I'll probably get pretty boring but I'll be here.

Today: 30 minutes on my bike:)

Today is day 4 OP

03-10-2001, 10:56 PM
Hi Bernice so glad you joined me. I was getting kinda lonely all by my lonesome. Glad for the company! The bikeriding is a great form of exercise I feel. Don't feel that you will be boring, no matter what you do as long as we keep on moving. I usually have been either going to the gym or using my treadmill and weights downstairs. I will try to start walking once the weather gets a bit better. Or maybe even get out my Tao Bo tapes and start with them. Got them but have not done too much of it, just learning so far. Today I went to the gym before I went to work. Had a great workout for about 1 1/2 hour so am kinda sore now cause of the weights I did. But hey like they say "No pain means no gain" or loss in our case. LOL

Talk to you later, Sassy Sharon :cool:

03-11-2001, 11:10 PM
Hi Sharon:) I decided that Sunday is the day I'll give myself a break so NADA in the exercise dept but wanted to come in and say HI:D

I'll be back tomorrow.

03-12-2001, 09:40 PM
Well I may get boring but I'm exercising:) Got 25 minutes on my bike today. I didn't really feel like it but decided I just needed to get started.

Talk to you tomorrow

Today is day 6 OP

I love that lady jumproping CJ, you are too funny.

Anyways I am getting back on track and even went to the gym today for about an hour and a half and did have a great workout.

The treadmill, free weights and all the other machines they had there. I feel really good now as usual when I leave the gym. This will really help keep me on track.

Bernice-Good job on the bike ride. I know you are glad now that you decided to take that ride. You are on your way!

CJ-Now you better jumprope for real next time. LOL

We are gonna do this girls!

Love ya, Sassy Sharon :D

03-20-2001, 11:09 PM
Well, Missy Sharon - I actually did get some exercise in today. I went for a walk for 45-60 minutes! It was so beautiful out I just had to do something.


Love, CJ

03-22-2001, 06:00 PM
I went for a nice long walk today ... 2.4 miles to be exact! Not a good day for my alergies tho .... you can tell spring is springing!

Love, CJ

03-24-2001, 12:30 AM
Walked 3 miles today! Hey, where is everyone???

Love, CJ

03-25-2001, 01:06 AM
Hey CJ,
I am here. I know you miss me so much. LOL

Anyways I have been doing great in the exercise dept. I went to the gym several times this week and on Friday I went to a local park with something called a People Trail, one of the many long and winding trails we have here in Columbus. I must have walked over an hour or so and enjoyed the the beautiful scenery while I walked. The birds in the trees, the leaves beneath my feet and just being out walking on such a gorgous day.

Golly CJ you are just walking your little butt off arn't you? We should do really good when we weigh in shouldn't we? I know we will!

So where is everyone else, hey Bernice? Zoe, Chrissy and everyone else who posts with us? Come on guys, what have you been doing exercise wise?

Talk to you later, Sassy Sharon :D

03-29-2001, 12:54 PM
Hi guys,
Talking to myself I guess. LOL

Anyways still doing good in the exercise dept. Have went to the gym and walked quite a bit. Don't know how I will do when I go for the trial next week but maybe won't be able to exercise, but will try to do what I can do.

Talk to you guys later, love ya Sassy Sharon :)

03-31-2001, 02:07 PM
Just wanted to let you know that I walked 3 miles yesterday! Obviously, my walking last week helped as I was down 2 lbs at weigh-in Thursday!

Sharon, can't wait to see ya!

Love, CJ

04-03-2001, 05:51 PM

Love, CJ
