December 4-DAY OF REST!

December 5-70 minutes bike (7 warm up for weights, 2-30 minute programs and a 3 minute cool down), 30 minutes weights

December 6-SCRUBBED my kitchen floor which was the hardest work all week...by I digress...42 minutes treadmill intervals, 33 minutes bike

December 7th-*hanging head low* I was a Cub Scout Leader last night and the boys WORE ME OUT so I didn't do it...I'll make up for it today though

OH MY GOODNESS! I knew that I felt really busy but I can't believe it's been this long since I posted...oh my..OK, I'm catching up today!

Dec. 2: 40 min. treadmill, 30 min. weights
Dec. 3: 60 min. treadmill, 30 min. weights
Dec. 4: 60 min. walk, 30 min. weights

Dec. 11: 30 min. walk
Dec. 12: 30 min. arc trainer
Dec. 13: 45 min. walk

Count me in too! This is my first challenge!

I can't imagine a better Christmas present than improving my health and getting my body in shape as I go down the scale and tape measure.

My goal is to do 2000 minutes of cardio, which works out to be 65 minutes per day. I know I can do this. I am going to start Pilates tomorrow (I have a Windsor Pilates DVD set that hasn't been used in forever), but I don't think I am going to include that in the challenge for this month. Since I'm just starting out, I think it's best to concentrate this challenge on cardio (walking/jogging/running) so I get used to doing that every day. I want to start strength training again, too; I just have to join a gym! Hopefully I will be able to do that before the end of the year.


12/1: 74 min. walk/5+ miles
12/2: 63 min. walk/jog 5 miles
12/3: 110 min. hike Medium Difficulty 6+ miles; 34 min. walk/jog 2.7 miles = 144 total min.
12/4: 63 min. walk/jog 5 miles
12/5: 68 min. walk/jog (mainly walk) 5 miles
12/6: 45 min. walk/jog 3.6 miles
12/7: 15 min. walk 1.2 miles; 62 min. walk/jog 5 miles = 77 total min.
12/8: 59 min. walk 4 miles; 60 min. walk/jog 4.7 miles = 119 total min.
12/9: 58 min. walk 4 miles; 45 min. walk/jog 3.6 miles = 103 total min.
12/10: Rest Day
12/11: Rest Day
