We didn't have one started last week and I'm a day late this week. Don't forget anyone can start the weekly threads. :)


I was in a bit of a funk over the weekend but I did get in my 6 days of exercise I was aiming for last week.

Yesterday I did just over two miles on my bike. It's a gravel road and has several hills so I'm using it at HIIT cardio (High Intensity Interval Training).

I was up way too late last night and was up late last night and didn't get in my exercise this morning. Planning on 1 hour of walking during the biggest loser.

Thank you for starting this! Next time, I'll start the thread if it doesn't go up. I just wasn't sure if there were rules to how this went.

Sunday: 30 minutes of jogging.
Monday: None :(

I haven't exercised yet, but I will get on the treadmill (with my new sneakers!) as soon as I finish posting.

I guess my new sneakers weren't as great a thing to motivate me as I thought. I got in my 30 minutes of speed walking, but my sock slipped down, and I now have a nasty blister on the back of my ankle. I guess I'll need to put a bandaid over it.

Ouch. You sound as accident-prone as me when I was starting to get in exercise again. :)

Apparently, I'm determined to knock myself up each and every time I move. I tried a little weight training earlier, and I dropped the dumbbell on my foot. I'm glad I was wearing my new sneakers for that.

Hi everyone, I hope it's OK if I jump in here.

Thursday will be two weeks I've been going to the gym 6 days a week! I'm so happy! I'm determined not to let myself have an excuse to miss a day.

So, for this week:

Monday: 45 min (bike, treadmill), 45 min weights
Tuesday: 45 min (bike, elliptical)

Welcome Amy. That is great. I know I've been feeling loads better now that I make exercise more of my routine and the norm rather than doing it on occassion.

I walked almost the entire hour of Biggest Loser last night, even jogging during the commercial breaks.

Oh jeez. I'm great at typos. I meant that I was knocking myself around. I think it's pretty unlikely that I could ever do what I actually typed. Anyway, I haven't done ANY exercise yet today. I did get some weight training in yesterday. I'll head up to work out as soon as I get some food.

Winterwonder, that's too funny. I didn't even think about it, and when I read the last message I was laughing so that my son came to see what was going on.

I'm very determined to make a habit out of exercising, and since I have been, I've felt a lot better.

Today I did the bicycle for 20 minutes, and the treadmill for 20. Then it was off to the weights for 45 minutes. I was very tired when I came home.

Good for you Amy! I just got off the treadmill and came downstairs to post how good I feel (before I forget) so that I can look at this tomorrow and once again manage to get myself up and jogging. I did thirty minutes on the treadmill today, and I'm planning on doing 30 minutes of weight training this evening. If it ever stops raining, I'll take my dog for a walk. If it doesn't, that'll be all the exercise that I get in.

I really wish I had a treadmill. I may have to put it at the top of my "wish" list. Jeff was just saying last night that I really could use one since I was just walking/jogging in place while watching TV.

My plan for exercise tonight is to bike the 2 miles beside with house. I'll go with my stepson if he's finished his homework. I'm going to try and make it with only stopping 2-3x on the trip instead of the 4-5 times

Dawnyal, treadmills are fabulous. It's cold and wet, so I can't really do much walking outside. Thanks to the treadmill, I get all of my exercise in. On an unrelated note, I just wanted to let you know that I think you're very beautiful.

I did not get to my 2 mile ride last night like planned. I had to listen to an almost 3 year old cry for the 30 minute drive home and I was drained from the drive (she didn't sleep much the night before and everything set her off.) Myself and the little kids went to bed just after 7 and I feel much better this morning although again I didn't exercise. I will walk/jog during survivor and then do yoga after I get the kids in bed tonight though. :)

I've kept up with my daily exercise this week. It ain't much -- still only about 10-15 minutes on the Gazelle. But I have done it consistently, every morning. And even a few evenings as well. The nasty scales don't show it. They took a jump last week, and have stayed there. Ah well, I'm not worrying about those numbers - I'm just going to keep going with the exercise.

Good for you, Darla! Every little bit helps.

I don't have much to report. I did my 30 minutes of jogging despite my horrible, crippling cramps. I'm about as proud of myself as a girl can be right now. :coach:

Darla that is awesome. Consistency is the key. When you feel ready you will up it.

Good for you Winterwonder for getting in your jogging. I would keep an eye on your cramps though. You don't want to injure yourself and then not be able to exercise at all :)

I did 1 hour of walk/jog last night while watching survivor. I walk briskly during the show, jog during the commercials and then do a slower walk the last 15 minutes. I was so excited at the end I ended up jogging and not realizing it. :)

My plan for tonight is the 1 mile WATP and the walk and jog WATP. I may do the yoga depending on my mood :)

Wow! This is just the place I need! Keep up the good work ladies :)

I am going to be away at a conference and staying at a hotel and will do the following daily:

Friday/Saturday/Sunday: 30 minutes treadmill/15 minutes swimming/15 minutes weight lifting/15 minutes jacuzzi (just for me, because it feels good :) ) I may also do 1 hour of yoga on Saturday and Sunday, depending on the time I have (I will be in conference from 8 am-6 pm).

I am setting my goals *low* so I will actually stick to them! If I feel like I can fit in more exercise, I will. Eating well will be no problem as I am brining lots of healthy food with me.

I plan on jumping right into a regular routine when I get back on Monday!

:welcome3: yogini. That's your idea of low goals :strong:WOW. That would be a long workout for me. Since you said you will be in the conference for most of the day don't get discouraged if you can't get all of that in.

Thanks, Dawnyal, I need to remember to not be so hard on myself. The hotel workout room and pool are really nice and I just got an MP3 player so I have no excuses to avoid doing at least a little every day :)

This week has been great exercise wise. I've done at least 30 minutes of cardo step, and on Wednesday I went to aquasize for an hour. Plus my job is a warehouse job so I'm constantly moving and lifting. The weekends are the hard part, I need to move more it's supose to be really nice this weekend so maybe a few walks to the local park will keep my groove going.
Have a great weekend everyone

Hi everyone,

So, on Tuesday, I did my usual 20 min on the stationary bike (my Christmas wish is for a REAL bicycle, but of course I'd need one of those double baby trailers to go with it), and then I did a more intense workout on the treadmill. I'm afraid to run right now because I'm so heavy I'm afraid I'd break something, but I did 3.5 mph during the Today Show, and 3.9 during the commercials. That's as fast as my legs could go without running. I kept that pace up for 30 minutes more. Anyhow, my heels were killing me last night. So today I stayed off the treadmill. After my usual 20 min on the bike I did the elliptical instead, then about 45 minutes with weights. I think I'll start taking a break from the treadmill at least every other day until I find out what's wrong with my heels. I swear I have a bone spurs or something. (I guess I need to stop self-diagnosing!)
