Ok....I already posted this in the March thread, but decided I'd start a new one with the new month and all.

Going to get my weights and work on my arm flab...:(

04-01-2006, 08:22 PM
It's April Fool's Day, it's cold, it's raining and the sky is totally dark - I'm taking the day off from exercise today.

04-02-2006, 03:08 PM
Beautiful :sunny: day so I decided on a walk instead of the gym. I think I just might get the ole bike tuned up too! So....40 min walk today.

04-03-2006, 01:01 AM
4/2: Got in a 40 minute brisk walk pushing 150 pounds of stroller and kids. :)

04-03-2006, 08:09 AM
Brand new week so I'll be joining as well. Barring complications that is. I've taken too many days off again. Back to the "shake your booty" groove:belly:

60 minutes treadmill

15 minutes Core Power class

15 minutes Abs class

Hi everyone, I started Atkins today...again!! lol I have no willpower but I've totally convinced myself "this is it!". Today has been great so far. I went for about a 35 min walk, it was 1.15 miles according to my pedometer. Has anyone tried the "Firm" videos? I've seen them and very curious if they're "newbie friendly"?


04-03-2006, 08:46 PM
50 min on the eliptical for 700 cals and 4.5 miles (need to go and delete my started thread I did below. :blush: it would help if I looked before I typed!! :rolleyes:

Thursday's exercise was walking through the airports hauling suitcases -- my husband can't lift his.

Today was mall shopping and walking around the floor here at the office doing a furniture project. My feet hurt.

04-08-2006, 08:34 PM

I'm headed back to Curves today finally!!!!!!!!!! I did get in some exercise over the weekend. I painted my bathroom and living room. I know that is not "normal" exercise, but it sure was a workout. AND I love the new paint colors.

But today is back to Curves at least 4 times a week....5 if I know whats good for me. I have to get at least 30 more pounds off in 3 months!!!

:bravo: to everyone for doing such a great job exercising.

04-18-2006, 10:57 AM
I am new around here too. I love reading what everyone posts!!
I am doing two miles three days a week which is not to much compared to some of you but it is a start I think I can feel challenged by but still drag myself out to do.
It's funny, I don't want to do it but after about ten min. at it I think...this is good! Then of course about the last 5 mins I think...legs, we are going to make it right???
Love ya sistas!!!

04-18-2006, 04:35 PM
35 min on treadmill....burned 402 calories!

04-18-2006, 08:07 PM
Just wanted to report that I have been EXTREMELY tired the past few days. Even so much that I contemplated NOT going to Curves today, but I did. AND ..... I feel so much better. After I left I felt like I had taken a 4 hour nap. The exercise got my adrenaline flowing and it felt great.

04-19-2006, 02:21 PM
I've been doing the exercise, but since this became a sticky, I keep forgetting about it.

70 minutes treadmill

30 minutes weight lifting

04-19-2006, 04:40 PM
Walking to Curves at 4.

04-19-2006, 06:08 PM

04-20-2006, 07:14 PM
Mowed my entire yard...which would be about an 80 minutes worth of mowing. Loaded and unloaded 10 2 x 4's out of my car from Lowes. AND just got back from Curves. :carrot:

04-20-2006, 09:04 PM
Jackie.....You've been busy!!! :lol:

spent the morning gardening, then 50 min more day then Im off for 2 days! I feel like Im working out to get to the weekend so I dont have to :lol:

04-21-2006, 02:16 AM
Well, I'm a newbie, but I suppose I'll join in! :)

Yesterday (4/19) I went for a walk with my family andc played with my dd at the playground (about a 1/2 hour), then I went and took a weight lifting class at my local gym (1 hour).

Today (4/20) I took a cardio kickboxing class for an hour, and almost died, lol! I can't believe how out of shape I have gotten...I used to take this class 4-5 times a week!!! Nonetheless, I've been sitting in the same spot since I got home cause I DON'T WANNA MOVE!!!! YIKES!

So, that's my exercise so far. :)


04-21-2006, 02:20 PM
Welcome Kam!

Going for a walk in a few minutes. Had a busy day so I didn't make it to Curves, but I did go 3 times this week. And Played baseball, badmiton, and basketball with my DS. So I feel like I've had a good workout today. Have a great weekend !! :carrot:

got a walk ipod gave out tho :( I dont think Im charging it up enough.

04-24-2006, 10:00 AM
good job, girls!!

Robin: my ipod has to be charged every three days. It ran out on me once while I was in the middle of my walk and it was a struggle to walk without it!! I swear that thing is the ONE thing that has kept me going :D

today: 3 miles :carrot: :carrot: :carrot:

04-24-2006, 10:36 AM
No, I cant go very far without it either. I discovered tho, that its one particular song thats making it fizzle out. It's Smooth by Rob Thomas and Santana. I tested it 2x yesterday after charging it, and each time after that particular song, it make a static sound and quit. Its all good now :lol:

04-24-2006, 03:55 PM

Goodness!! I bow down to you ladies who can do more than 10 min on the eliptical!!!! That sucker just knocks me out!! :faint: My gf has me doing 5min at a time....then I get off....that thing hurts everything :lol:

04-26-2006, 12:50 AM
I forgot to post my exercise yesterday, so I'll do that and todays:

Yesterday (4/24)
45 minutes circuit training

Today (4/25)
55 minutes cardio kickboxing class

04-26-2006, 10:31 AM
well this week I have been bad...I have not exercised. I was just feeling like poo. Then one of the wise ladies here clued me in to the fact that potasium loss was probably the problem so I have purchased a multivitamin for low carbers and home by weeks end I am feeling more like taking it on.
In the meantime I am just trying to get extra steps in through the day.

04-26-2006, 05:39 PM
Robyn -- just do 10 minutes on the elliptical if that's all you can do. Next week, do 11 minutes. The week after that, do 12. In no time, you'll be doing a lot more. When I started, I could only do 10 minutes on resistance level one. Now I can do up to 60 minutes on resistance level 4.

35 minutes treadmill for today along with 30 minutes elliptical and 30 minutes of strength training upper body for me.

04-26-2006, 06:17 PM
Susan....I managed 15 min today :cb: Only because I forced myself to slow down, and imagined pushing my legs thru water. It worked :lol: I still think its just evil :devil:

so...15 min elliptical, 20 min treadmill....I was soaking wet when I was done. Treadmill 3.4mph and a 7 incline with 10 incline in 3 min increments

Upper body workout
and 15 min of the ab class....couldnt go the whole 30min.

Almost forgot, went for a 45 min walk this morning to soak up the sunshine :sunny:

04-27-2006, 01:44 AM
