Afternoon, ladies! Company is gone, and my house is cleared out. Now, I just have to catch up with everyone from May, and see where things are. I also get to change my ticker, because despite having company over, and having a cookout, and several events, I am down a total of 72 pounds now. I've lost Nicole Ritchie, or one of the Olsen twins! Ok, so maybe not quite ALL of them, but close enough.

Since I've had less than formal exercise schedules for the last 2 weeks, today starts my "Jennifer's Boot Camp" where I'm committed to tightening up everything for the next 15 days. Then, birthday weekend / father's day, and a nice celebration dinner, and finish up the month with some momentum, and back into the swing of things.

So, I'm committed to:
Food- under 1800 calories per day, minimal processed crap
Water- 10-12 8oz glasses per day, minimum
Exercise- 30 minutes intense cardio per day, minimum. Strength for core and upper body sprinkled in. After week 1, 45 minutes a day for the next 7 days.

That's the plan. 12 pounds off in May thanks to a lot of keeping busy and functional stuff, like unpacking, digging, planting trees, scrubbing, etc, etc. Time to get the formal exercise back into the rotation. Missed everyone! Happy June!

Went to the gym today and did an upper body work out plus 25 minutes on the treadmill. Walked my 1 mile in 22 minutes today at 3.0 mph. That's almost running with my short legs. My goal is to walk 1 mile in 15 minutes. I almost broke a sweat today. My body temperature stays around 97.6.

LindaT read your comment in my journal and it makes more since that way. If you can do 350 minutes of exercise each week surely I can do 300. Is this all cardio?

Ceejay, I had to go back and read what I wrote and I sort of got it bassackwards.. sorry.. I'll restate it My fingers were going faster than my brain

If you Eat 3500 calories and burn 7000, that equals a one pound LOSS. You must burn more than you take in

I wrote it backwards from that.. eat 7000 and burn 3500 That would be a one pound gain!! Duh Linda!!

Most of mine is cardio right now due to my shoulder injury. I cannot do heavy weights but I do use a weighted bar two days a week so I get resistance training as well as cardio at the same time. You do whatever you can. Just like the Desiderata says.. " if you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter." So you just be the BEST Ceejay you can be!!

Well, yesterday and early this morning, we got hit with Tropical Storm Barry out of nowhere! So, the good news is, we got some rain that we desperately needed.

Yesterday- food was 1619 calories. Water was 14 cups. Did 2 miles WATP, 30 minutes. This morning, got up and did 2 more miles, and then 15 more minutes of an aerobics DVD. Considering getting on the bike later on today, to keep things moving. I'll be back later to post the full update. Day 2 of "boot camp" is under way, and everything's in order.

Updating....last night, I did 4 miles on the bike to add to the tally.

Today- calories in at 1725. 30 minutes on the bike, for 8.5 miles of intervals. Water- 12 cups, and will be filling the glass again once dinner is done, so that'll be 16 for the day. Day 3 of boot camp, done. Whew! Feels good!

How was everyone's weekend?

Gym last night for 57 minutes. I'd planned on 60 but talked to the employee's there. 30 minute walk on the treadmill, 5 minute bike, the rest on weight machines. The doc has limited me to 50 pounds weight.
Total minutes 107. Didn't make any pledges just doing the best I can.

URS--congratulations on that one pound lost.

Jennifer--You are doing well with your boot camp.

Default Well, I did it...

I got back to the gym tonight after about a month. It was great although I only got in 30 mins of cardio and 30 mins of weights. I'd like to up it back up to 45-60 mins of cardio, but I didn't want to push myself too hard my first time back in a month. I'm happy I went though - I felt GREAT afterwards.

The plan is to go for atleast 7 of the next 9 days until my in-laws come to visit for a week and a half. While they are here we will be travelling alot (Atlantic City, NYC, Erie, etc.) so I don't how much I'll get to the gym...but until then I have a week and a half and I'm determined to make it count.

It felt great to get back to it today...I'm already looking fwd to tomorrow!!

Ok well I just joined these forums and want to post in the whole foods areas because I would like to take our eating style that way. But that is for another post I am here because I know I am bad about exercise now that I have fallen out of the habit so I would like to join your accountability for June "club". How does this work do you usually just keep posting up once in a while how you are doing for the month under this post?

BTW I love the way you set up goals of minutes for the month...dang some of you put in lots and lots of minutes. For this month I think I better ramp up a bit, have been out of the habit too long and don't want to injure myself.

So goals for June shall be.....(drumroll please)

600 minutes of cardio exercise (tapes or walking)
300 minutes of yoga

Hopefully this will spend one month gettting the habit built by not having a huge time commitment (and truthfully right now I do nothing so its something). Then next month I will try to increase it.
