Lightbulb Summer Slim Down #3 EXERCISE!!!

Summer Slim Down #3

Starting from Thursday June 18th Tuesday August 18th

An 8 week Exercise challenge


I know this is different from the other challenges but lets give it a try. Each day we can add some kind of exercise into our lives. From parking further from the front door at the store or joining a gym. Any exercise helps. By posting in this thread we can give each other ideas, motivation and of course encouragement!! So who is with me???


How to Burn an Extra 100 Calories Fast

Burning an extra 100 calories a day can be easy and fast. If you burn an extra 100 calories a day, that's 700 a week. Burning an extra 100 calories a day for five weeks equals 3500 calories, which equals one whole pound of weight loss. If you burn an extra 100 calories a day for one year, you'll weigh a whole ten pounds less without cutting back on food intake. Get started today, and lose 100 calories a dayfast by doing any of the exercises below.
Burn an extra 100 calories a day fast; skip rope for only ten minutes.
Burn 100 calories a day in ten minutes riding a bike.
Lift weights for 15 minutes.
Make love for an hour to burn 100 calories. You can also make love twice a day for 30 minutes to burn 100 calories.
Run or jog one mile in ten minutes to burn 100 calories
Take a walk for fifteen minutes and burn 100 calories.
Run up and down the stairs for fifteen minutes.
Turn on your favorite music and dance around the room for twenty minutes
Wash your car for twenty minutes to burn 100 calories fast.
Clean your house. Vacuuming for 35 minutes will burn 100 calories.

I'm in. Am I supposed to post daily what exercise I do?

I have to clean my house tonight and then I'm going to water aerobics for an hour.

Guess I should get honest with myself and put up a ticker too. I'll "officially" wiegh in the morning and put a ticker up.

Default YES .... Count me In

I think this is a fabulous idea and you can count me in. I am going to use this challenge to help me get in shape for this wedding I am going to on August 15th. Wonderful idea for the challenge.

Maybe I will put up an excercise ticker too to track my progress. Well ladies I have to start getting ready for work and it's raining again. I will try to add this challenge to my signature and put up an excercise ticker too later on in the day. I will check in while I am at work so ladies have a wonderful day.

P.S. I put my final post on Summer Slim Down #2 this morning with my results.

I am going to try to post my exercise daily. Everyday I still dread exercising but once I start I am fine. I am really going to try to mix it up this week. I enjoy walking the most but with the weather I have to find alternatives. I have the biggest looser bootcamp DVD and I just bought Jillian Michaels 30 day shred so I am going to try to do those on rainy/hot days. I also have a routine I made up on my own that I do when I can't manage time for a walk or DVD. I am also trying to make more of an effort to try to incorporate exercise into my daily routine. We do not have stairs at work but I have been parking further away and making an effort to get up and just walk around the building when I have been sitting to long.

Week 1 (6/15-6/21)
M:15 minutes cardio with weights
T:30 min walk/jog pushing stroller
W:30 min cardio
T:10 min cardio
F:25 cardio
S:

Good Afternoon Ladies. I cleaned my house last night - for an hour and a half but did not go to water aerobics. Tonight I have to go grocery shopping and am going to hop on the eliptical while the clothes are being laundered. Think I'll grab me a book, put on my headphones with some tunes and see how long I last. It's been 6 months or more since I've been on it. Sad isn't it. Anyway, just checking in for the day. And I'll get my ticker up too even though I'm not proud of it.

Have a great Thursday everyone.

Good Morning Ladies. I know I said I was going to the store last night and I did but when I got home we ended up staining and sealing the deck!!! Took over 4 hours to do. Not sure how many calories I burned doing it but it sure looks nice today. Was terribly hot and humid while we were doing it though but at least it's done and we don't have to do it this weekend!!

Tonight I'm having all 5 of the grandkids sleepover and then tomorrow we're going to the riverfront to the festival down there. So am sure I'll be doing some chasing after kids both tonight and tomorrow. That's my plan for the weekend. We'll see how it pans out.

Have a great Friday everyone. I'll check back later.

Good job Lauie I am sure you burned a ton of calories. They say doing household work at a fast pace for an entire hour is the same as an intense aerobic work out for 30 minutes? Who knowa but good job anyway.

I really appreciate everyones response to this thread. I know anyone can lose weight without exercise but I have realized how important exercise is to my weight loss. This is from an article I just read:


How to burn extra calories at work
Park your car far away from your office, so you have to walk a little bit more.
If you work in a larger building, use the restroom in another floor, by going with the stairs.
Every other phone call you get, stand up and walk in a circle.
While sitting down, trace the alphabet on the ground with your feet (one set per leg), this will work your abs.
Another abs exercise is to get a bottle of water and hold it above your head and slightly move it from side to side. Repeat for 10-15 times.
During your lunch break, take 20-30 minutes to walk; window shopping at the mall counts too.
Insert some squats in your work routine, if you have an office do them there while you are on the phone. Otherwise do them in the restrooms, if you feel comfortable there.

Okay ladies here is my exercise stats for last week. Just simply horrible . I plan on doing better this week. My motivation o excercise has been totally off. I am not sure if it is all of this rain that has got me down and out. However, even though I did no exercise I must say I am still POP. This weekend I have been really having some issues about where I am and where I want to be. I am also looking back to wasted years. I am trying not to dwell over it and accept the decisions I have made in the past and try to move forward. Since the past year I have been rediscovering who I really am. For once I am starting to appreciate ME and not the me everyone wants me to be. I guess we all go through with this at some point (or a few times - ha, ha, ha)in our lives. Well I have to start getting ready for work it is abot 7:12 am now. Today is my late night and I will be working until 8:00 pm. I will try to log in sometime this afternoon.

Week 1 (6/15-6/21)
06.15 ..... NONE
06.16 ..... NONE
06.17 ..... NONE
06.18 ..... NONE
06.19 ..... NONE
06.20 ..... NONE
06.21 ..... NONE

Mommyofsix: Are you doing TO tommorow? Let me know I might want to do it with you.

morning Everyone. I'm sorry to report that I have not done any exercise since Saturday. I'm in a funk right now and am hoping that I will snap out of it soon!! I probably won't get any exercise tonight as it is my birthday today and I'm going out for dinner. But tomorrow it's back on the wagon!!

Hope you are all getting your exercise in. Keep up the good work!!
