1 mile last night--my foot is still bothering me.

Shelley--thanks for the advice on the shoes/socks. Can I get socks with Coolmax at a shoe store? The shoes I've been walking in are the old ones I've had for three (or more) years--I definately need some new ones. I just hate to go shoe shopping, though. Seems like I never can find the "right" pair, so I just settle for the best ones I can find. Of course, I usually buy them at a dept. store. Maybe I should try Foot locker this time.

Had my measuring session last night. I've lost inches in some areas and gained in others (1/4 in my thigh & almost 1/4 in my hip area), overall loss of around 4 1/2 inches so far, though. I'm starting to actively count calories today, though, so next time I'll be looking for better results.

Cheryl-Awesome stats!! You are doing great!

You can get socks with coolmax in them even atTarget or Walmart. I don't spend the prices for the name brand ones. If I were you, I would go to a real shoe store that specializes in walking and running shoes. If you go to a place like that, you can take your old shoes in and they can see how they have worn down and tell you what type of shoe you need. I did it and have been wearing the same shoe now for a year or 2. I wear Brookes Adrenaline running shoes. They are perfect for me. Now that I know the shoe I need to wear, if I see it on sale, I can buy it and save it for later.

Dee-Careful with that back, lady! Please take it especially easy these days.

Went 4.5 today--it was very windy out!

You all will never believe what Ms. Grace did last night.... I walked OFF THE TREADMILL. :D Then, when I was getting back on to it, I walked OFF THE OTHER SIDE :D To their credit, the girls behind the counter at the gym didn't laugh at me. I laughed at me! Good thing I don't embarass easily! :) Anyway, between all my acrobatics, I managed to stop the counter on the treadmill and lose track of the distance I had walked (twice). I know I walked at least 2 miles, probably closer to 2.5, but I'm going with the smaller #. And I rode 1/2 mile on the spinning bike.

2.5 overall (2 walking & 1/2 biking)

Sherry do I see fins growing? I think that you are turning into a mermaid.

Cheryl you doing tricks on the treadmill? I am glad that you didn't get hurt. You are doing great. The cool max socks that Shelley suggested are great.

Shelley if it was windy it wasn't cold was it? We still have a little snow on the ground here.

Debbie take care of your ankle. Aquafit should be ok to do after a few days but if it hurts don't push it.

Hey there, everyone!

2 miles on the treadmill & 1 mile on the bike last night. (I can tell SUCH a difference in my outer legs, between the knee & thigh when I ride the bike)

I get to walk outside this week-end, since I'll be home. See y'all on Monday.

Hey girls!!! :wave:

I went to the Y this afternoon, not really sure what I could do though. Had a light workout!! My foot felt fine but my tailbone is hurting now. Oh the joys of getting OLD!!

But the good news is I'm down another pound!!! 15 total!!!

Debbie-Awesome!! 1 lb. is great! Did you try water aerobics with your foot? Also, do they have a spa for you to relax in after your workout? That would help your tailbone and your foot!

Cheryl-Have fun!

Dee-It was windy but not cold. It was a bit cooler than normal, but today it is back to the high 70's, and tomorrow we will be back to the 80's.

Sherry-Good job!

Thank You Sherry for my new Chickie!!!! Now I'm working on one just like yours...LOL

Shelley.... We have a spa but I didn't have my swimsuit in my bag today. I'm sure it will help me tomorrow. I usually go to the Saturday morning Water Aerobics . The other classes don't fit my schedule.

WTG Everyone!! Yes..Sherry I agree ...WE ARE AWESOME!!!

Shelley... You are doing great. Over half way to your goal this month!!

Advise please....I have a little {flab] under my arms {just hanging there} and between my upper legs!! Embrassing huh!!! What are some good excerises for this? I'm getting firm everywhere esle but really want this FLAB gone!!!

Skipped Water Aerobics this morning. No excuse, just too many chores around here. But I still got my 3 days in this week, even with a bad foot.

Debbie-Your best bet for your arms is using some light weights. I know when I was working out with weights it took no time for my arms to lose their flabiness. For me, legs are harder. Nothing gets rid of the flab between my leg except lots of running and losing more weight, but then again all of my weight goes straight to my bottom half.

Sherry-Good on you for getting in 3 days again!

Sherry

Hey ladies! I was so bad this week-end! Ran around so much that I didn't manage to get any walking in! :( But I did get a new pair of shoes--Saucony. I can't wait to get back on the treadmill tonight and start breaking them in!!

Hi girls:wave:

I worked out for an hour at the Y this afternoon. I needed that hour of stress-free time.

Shelley... Thanks for the advise. I'm working out on the weight machines for your arms, guess it will just take time. Of course the {flab} isn't as big as it once was.

I am finally posting. I can't believe that I actually reached 100 miles. I have slowed down to a turtle pace. Lots of activity here. You guys are doing great!

Debbie do you do weights in the water at aquafit? I know that tightened up my arms. Your legs will tighten up too with the aquafit.

Debbie...I agree with Dee. Using those water weights will help with your arms and just doing water aerobics will help your legs.

I may start using my weights for just half the class because my arms are small and I don't want them to look too small against this bigger bod! :lol:

Everyone is doing great!!!!!!!! :cp:

DebbieA
04-23-2004, 08:58 PM

Shelley.... WTG on staying OP!! WTG on the 1 pound lost too!! :cp:

Watergirl...I mean Sherry!!! LOL You are doing great!! I love the Water Aerobics too. Hopefully when school is out I can go more often. Don't tell anyone I'm off for 8 weeks...LOL.

I worked out at the Y for an hour this afternoon. Trying to up my volume some...I want to get this weight off a little quicker!! I have been totally OP for 62 days and feel great but I should have lost more than 15 pounds....right? What am I doing wrong guys? Advise please!!! I'm trying not to get discouraged :(

ShelleyM
04-28-2004, 05:51 AM
Debbie-Don't worry about the number on the scale!! The inches matter the most, especially when you are exercising as much as you are. Muscle weight more than fat because it is much denser. Are you clothes looser? You must have dropped a couple of sizes with 15 pounds!!! You are doing awesome and I bet that you look more like 25 pounds are gone!

Sherry--I have a fa-vore to request of you.....If you don't mind, would you leave this thread open for awhile after the May one has been started? I won't be able to post my week-end goals until next Monday, and, since I think I may actually MAKE GOAL for the first time EVER, I'd like to post it here on this thread.........If you don't want to, it's no biggie, I just had to ask.
