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...:(

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.

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.

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:

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"?

thanks!
Jeanette

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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. :)

bnbsmommy1
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:

RobinW
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:

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.

hockeyfan7
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.

RobinW
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:
