Default Exercise Accountability # 17 -- August '05

Hi everyone ... I had a coffee after supper and look at me I'm still up at almost 1AM ... So I decided to start the Exercise thread.

I've noticed that many of us exercisers are very busy in the summer and the weekly exercise thread gets lost at the bottom of the page sometimes. So in my tired wisdom at 1AM decided to make the Exercise Accountability thread for the whole month of August. If anyone has a better idea or would like to return to the weekly format we can certainly switch it easily. We can go back to the weekly thread in September when we're all back to more regular routine...

So, since it's 1AM I haven't exercised yet ... I'll touch base later and add my exercise for the day......

Well, I was looonnnggg gone sleepin' by 1 am! And now it's 9:35 and I've still not exercised. I have a bit of a muzzy headache that needs to go away before I do the first day of my second week of Body Sculpting Bible.
I knew I wouldn't be able to take a rest day on Sunday. I went for a bike ride 'round the country block. It was very nice.
This week I'm going to keep a closer eye on my fat intake. It creeps up very easily.
I'm unit clerking this week instead of patient care. It's more sedentary (scary). Sooner or later I'm going to have to decide if I'm going to get up early to do my BSB routine or do it after work (7ish-3ish). I only have to do the weights thing Wed and Fri so maybe tomorrow I'll get up and do cardio and see how that goes. If I'm not a zombie I can get up on Wed to do weights.
I'll probably end up in bed by about 7:30 pm snoring!

I'm kind of a pest when I'm home. Frequent poster

I did my weight workout. My little arms still drive me nuts! For the second set of extentions I had to put one weight down. Only 5 lbs!

In the BSB they recommend that you do stiff legged deadlifts from the top down. It's much easier to keep your lower back in good (protective) form that way. I like them.

I got up at 5:30 but did not do much. I was on the elliptical for a few minutes but I worried about getting my lunch ready and getting my hair fixed in time ... just not a good scene. So I went for a bike ride tonight. There's my cardio.
I got home from work and a little while later my youngest son came home too. He watched an old show on TV and I did abs on the TV room floor ... and we chatted. Later I was thinking how things have changed around here. A couple of years ago, he would have thought I was nuts. Now none of my family thinks it's weird if I suddenly break out into fitness.

It is soooo hot and sticky here! I did do the BSB weights but it was lethargic to say the least!
I've got a sort of quad pull thing happening. Ballet squats hurt! If it's not feeling better on Friday (my next weights day) I think I'll make up a leg-less routine in place of the BSB one. That'll give it until Monday (return to day one) to loosen up.

I didn't feel like tiddling around with counting and timing today so I did 25 minutes of heavier upper body. Then I went for a 30 minute bike ride on the hilly sideroad. I feel awesome!
I might go back to the weights.
I think I will sleep well tonight!

Yesterday I drove (is that exercise? it sure is tiring) almost two hours one way to go bridesmaid dress shopping with my daughter and two of her attendants. It was fun but tiring. I got some specials at a couple of grocery stores on the way home so by the time I got here and made supper for a couple of roofers I felt like blah! And yet the evening stretched before me ... lots of time and nothing to do .... guilt set in. i went for a bike ride. 30 minutes. It felt good. Between that and a dot of red wine ... I slept very well.
I have a more ambitious schedule for today which includes some tidying because the princess and her beau are coming for a couple of days. Instead of sitting at the computer I should be exercising!

I went for my bike ride round the country block (5 miles) and I did legs this evening. Feel nice and wobbly now. I think we're going to watch "Supersize Me" again this evening. My son (the pepsi king) wants to see it

I did upper body this morning. Awesome bench press, felt really good. I forgot to do push-ups which are turning out to be nicer than I remember My daughter was home so we worked out together. It was great.
Tonight I went biking again. I've set a goal for August because I'm so bad at cardio.
