I'm slowly creeping back up towards 150.... :eek: I need to get back into full exercise mode again so I'm going for 1500 this month.

Also, I've gotten into a rut - all cardio, almost all walking. I need to get back into hooping, using my hand weights, and more wii fit strength this month.

5/1 - 45 mins
5/2 - 15 mins
5/3 - 40 mins


Total so far: 100 mins

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah...this looks like the first month that I'm not going to make my goal. :( I seriously considered adding 200 minutes of driving for the Autism Walk (hey, driving is listed as an option on Cardio Trainer AND it DOES burn calories, LOL) but decided not to. Oh well.
