Happy Monday!

My car didn't start this morning, so I got to the gym a little late. I was only able to fit in 40 minutes running (10:1 interval) and upper body weights. I am hoping I can stop at the gym on my way home and get in the lower body.

Good morning all! Melissa, did you and your husband go out friday? Or did you end up staying home to watch the world series? Great start for a monday morning girl!
I have to see how today goes to know whether I will go to the gym at lunch or after work. So far, i am pretty slow though.

Just got back from a brisk, 90 minute walk!

I'm trying to find my running magazine... OH!! My DH just found it!!
I'm hoping to start my program (walk/run) later this week, assuming my cough continues to clear.

Good going, girls!!

We went out on Saturday to dinner (Gibson's Steak House - Yum!) and to see Wicked, then we spent the night in downtown Chicago. It was wonderful. Thanks for asking.

So, sometimes car trouble works out for good. When I left to go home and switch cars back with my DH they told me not to worry about coming back. (I would have only had about 40 minutes left to work when I got back.) So I went home, then left again and went to the gym. I got my lower body workout in, then had some extra time so I did 30 minutes on the eliptical too! What a great exercise day. I know it will be challenge while I am at my sisters, so I am cramming it in now.

I really, really, really didn't want to get out of bed this morning. But I did.

I got to the gym later than I wanted. I knew I had extra time today so I wanted to do 60 minutes of cardio, but I only had time for 40 minutes on the stair machine.

Tomorrow is Treadmill Hill time and weights. Thursday I will be in New Hampshire, but it is normally a rest day. Friday, I should be able to run my 8 miles (!) outside while my daughter plays with her cousins. If I can control my eating while I am there I should be okay.

I ended up doing my "Crunch Pilates" dvd last night when I got home. Today it is weights/abs/2 mile run day.

Blah - it is cold and rainy out.

See now, FishWoman - I love cold and rainy. It is the best for a run outside or a long bike ride. Dressed appropriately, of course.

Hills this morning! 38 minutes of them on the treadmill. Whee! Then I did both upper and lower body strength training. I leave for my sister's house in New Hamshire this afternoon.

I lifted weights and did a bunch of leg exercises late last night (between 8:45 and 9:20 p.m. I wanted to get some cardio in, but knew if i did i would never get to sleep). Today i am supposed to run 4 miles. I might end up just doing the elliptical. we shall see. I know it won't happen until after work because during lunch i have an appointment to get my mangy eyebrows waxed. But, i do walk back and forth to the salon, which is a 20 minute walk each way.

Arrgh! Wednesday and Thursday were absolutely crazy at work. Wednesday I ended up taking work home around 9 p.m. and working at home until 4 a.m. Then back in the office at 9 a.m. Yesterday I left work at 8:30 p.m. All that aside, I did manage to get two 20-minute walks in each day. I am behind on my running, and behind on my weight lifting, but at least I am doing something.

Just returned from the gym - i just did 30 minutes on the elliptical. I am tired today.

I know Melissa was going up to New Hampshire (what, no computers in NH? ) But where is Melra? And Ellis, where is Ellis?

Wow, only 4 more days to boost up our montly exercise totals! This month has gone by fast. I hope everyone is doing well.

Still sick. I've just about had it with this bronchitis. I'm going to get on the treadmill or bike today if it kills me.

I am home! Hooray!

I did my 8 mile run on Friday morning. Well, at least I hope it was 8 miles. We pulled up a map using the google maps pedometer, but it had a new street that wasn't completed. So I ran for 106 minutes. My last 6 mile run was 78, I think and I usually run about a 13 minute mile. But I run faster outside than the treadmill. So I figured 78 + 26 would be 104 so hopefully it was 8 miles.

My sister does have a computer Fishy, but it is soooooooooo slow that it just isn't worth logging on very often. We stay pretty busy with all the kiddies!

My eating wasn't perfect, but I think I did okay. I am waiting to see what the scale at the gym says in the morning. I won't be too excited or worried either way. I got my period while I was gone plus all the air travel messes with my body too.

Where is Melra?!

Gee, is October over already!?!?

Good going, Melissa!! (and thank you for counting your own... I don't think I'm up for it right now. heh heh)

How did everyone else do?
I'm not even going to bother counting my own. I DID walk for 90 minutes today, though!!

I'll go and start the November thread so we're all ready for tomorrow.
Step away from the candy, girls!!! says she, having just eaten a dozen small bars of chocolate...
