For an effective weight loss program it is important to incorporate exercise as well as making better dietary choices. While any kind of exercise is good for you, it has been proven many times over that just cardio or just strength training isn't the way to go...you need to have a combination of both, with a little bit of core focus as well. So as you plan out and track your exercise this week, be sure to get in 2-3 strength workouts and 2-3 cardio sessions. And don't forget about those abs! Copy and paste the follow format and come back throughout the week to edit your original post. Letís get busy!!

Rainbow - I'm with YOU! I have no plan. Planning exercise makes me feel like I'm tied to a chair with no options or freedom!

But - I will commit to "planning" to do at least 30 minutes of cardio (of some variety) every day.

Monday- 30 minutes cardio - 30+ minutes of shoveling
Tuesday- 30 minutes cardio - 30+ minutes of furniture moving and carpet cleaning
Wednesday- 30 minutes cardio - 17 minutes of cardio with weights
Thursday- 30 minutes cardio - 41 minutes FIRM cardio with weights
Friday- 30 minutes cardio - 53 minutes FIRM Bootcamp, 97 minutes mowing grass
Saturday- 30 minutes cardio - 38 minutes Jillian Michaels for Wii, 97 minutes weeding
Sunday- 30 minutes cardio

Awesome job to all those who have attempted or have completed their goals so far this week!!!!

So, do you all set a certain time to your exercise each day and stick to it or do you just do it when you want or can find time?

My goal is pretty much the same all the time..

I try and do at least an hour of my ea active everyday and then add some random exercises in while watching tv with the hubby (crunches, planks, squats, etc). I don't plan rest days and take them as needed (usually twice a month or so).

So far this week I have stayed on plan. I did 45 min of ea this morning but don't feel so great so we'll see if I do anything else today.

In a few weeks I'm hoping to get back on track with going to the gym at least twice a week!

Wednesday- 3.68 miles, no strength
Thursday- 5.18 miles, no strength
Friday- 1.50 miles, no strength
Saturday- 2.77 miles, no strength

Total: 21.5 miles and no strength training. I felt very tired and weak (was sick), being motivated to walk was all I could do. I should have a similar goal this week. My husband ask if it was hard and the answer is no. However, it was good that I pushed it in the first part of the week or i could have quickly got behind.
